Description: The Oliveto Stonegrill Concept. The method of cooking food on stones can be traced back to the Ancient Egyptians and Vikings. Now, Oliveto Stonegrill offers a unique interactive dining experience where diners meals are served cooking at the table on super-heated natural volcanic stones. These specially selected stones, chosen for their high heat retention, are heated to 400°C (752°F) in our purpose-built Stonegrill oven. Meals are presented within a protective ceramic serving tray, sided by vegetables and condiments. The high temperature obtained with the Stonegrill Method, sears the product faster and locks in the natural juices and nutrients, enhancing the full flavour and tenderness of all foods. The unique "dry cooking" method, uses no added fats or oils and sears the food without burning. This method also eliminates product shrinkage, taste transfer from cooking compounds and carbonization of the cooking surface. It ensures a clean, and completely natural food flavour, not achievable with conventional cooking methods. The result is a freshly grilled, healthy and nutritious meal with a sensational taste, unique to Stonegrill

The restaurant is situated on Tomb of the kings road, it has a very well presented outside area which is quite widespread so you don't feel like you're intruding on someone else's meal or conversation. The staff were attentive and looked after our table efficiently which included a toddler. We were given cold water melon soup as a free amuse bouche, this was very clean tasting you felt rehydrated after consumption. The food was well presented and arrived exactly as the menu had described it, I had the salmon two ways which was beautiful light and fresh, it was a perfect starter for a warm summers night. Our table had steaks and rack of lamb cooked medium rare, all dishes arrived cooked to perfection. I am very particular and the steak would have gone back to the kitchen if it had not been right. They were tasty and succulent and enhanced with a beautiful bottle of prosecco. The portions were not over sized but I think this is not a bad thing as I hate leaving food. It took a couple of hours to have the meal but it was well worth the wait. I would definitely return for round two.

The setting of Oliveto is fantastic, a great looking restaurant. The staff are also extremely friendly and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Unfortunately the food wasn't quite on the same level. It was nice, don't get me wrong, but just didn't blow us away. The steaks were slightly overcooked, which was a real shame, as everything else was great. I would come back again, though, because of the service and setting.

Can't put my finger on why. It looked beautiful excellent setting of tables, well designed , good menu, but it lacked the Wow factor it promised. Food was ok, lack of vegetables on the plate no potatoes and quite bland. Service was ok but I got the impression that they wanted customers to have three course meals and lots of wine , where as we wanted a main course and a few drinks and a chance to relax. Wouldn't rush to recommend it , there was sadly just something lacking
