After having worked in the industry for a few years now, it was great to stumble across this little gem. A restaurant not overly focused on packing out the floor to maximise profits.
The somewhat small (but by no means a negative) venue is rather intimate and creates an excellent atmosphere. The service was great and not overly attentive. Efficient too despite being full.
The food is delicious. Very well presented and well described on the menu. I opted for the kiln smoked rainbow trout from the specials board for starter, and the 6oz hake fillet with mussels as a main also from the specials board. Absolutely beautiful.
My girlfriend went with the goats cheese pastry for starter and the pork belly as main. Both of which again, we're lovely.
There was a slight mix up with our bread and olives, but in no way did that influence the evening. The staff were even kind enough to knock them off the bill, but I would have quite happily paid regardless.
The Chablis was lovely - perhaps I am biased as it is my favourite white - so much so we went through 2 and at just under £20, which I thought was moderately priced.
All in all an absolutely wonderful evening, incredible food, lovely ambience and great wine. Would like to say thank you to Olive Tree, and I will definitely be returning.
