“Please visit for a little taste of the med in Fax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

I went here with my daughter and partner, following recommendations on Trip Advisor, and to get me in the spirit of a visit to Greece next week.

The staff were very friendly and made conversation, although it was very quiet.

The food was fab, the greek dips are to die for and we were offered more bread once we had finished our first bowl full.

The menu is extensive and offers specials and early bird deals, we opted for the souvlaki for two, which came as an ample portion including, tzatski, pasta, salad and sautee potatoes, the meat was delicious really tender and tasty. My daughter had the souvlaki for one, and this came with hand made chips (always a winner).

To top it all we had mythos beer, which made me remember holidays in Greece, all topped off with a Greek sweet and coffee.

Lovely meal, nice simple decor and friendly staff. Hope more people go here as it is a little gem hidden away, lets hope the big chains around the corner don't spoil the fact that lovely food can be found at these independant restaraunts.

“Good food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

Following recommendations on trip adviser we decided to go the 3 Olives. We were not disappointed. We went as a group of 4 and decided to choose the one of Set menu Meze. The food was excellent and portions generous. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate to return.

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

Went to the 3 Olives last night with my parents, it's not the first time we've been there, which shows just how good it is. With it being the August Bank Holiday, there was live Greek music and dancing. All the staff are very friendly and very accommodating. They even started dancing to the live music when the restaurant was quieter. My parents and I all had a mezze. For £16.95 per person this is fantastic, the amount of food we got is excellent and it was cooked beautifully. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to try traditional Greek cuisine. We need to keep little diamonds like this restaurant going strong for years!!
