Reviewed 28 August 2012

We arrived at the restaurant and was shown to a table straight away. We each had a 3 course meal and wine and it was excellent value for money, the service was amazing and the food arrived quickly and freshly prepared and hot

Reviewed 18 July 2012

We chose from the a la carte menu and were quite pleased with the food generally and there were several choices for vegetarians.

“Great for lunch or dinner”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

Can't fault the Olive Tree - great location, very friendly, good menu, food and prices. Its also family-friendly - not in a soft play area built into the corner kind of way, but in welcoming families and providing high chairs etc. For that reason, it would not be my first choice for a romantic meal for two, but for a family lunch out when you are looking for something a bit more than junk food or pasties on the quay, its perfect - simple food served well.
