“Consistently good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2013 via mobile

A genuine restaurant nestled amongst the numerous take-aways that dominate "dining" in St Leonards. While the coffee rates as "OK" by my reckoning, the food is genuinely good. And while my experience of Olio's is limited to breakfasts and lunches spread regularly over the past few years, peers point to their very positive experiences of evening meals, including wine events.

While I wouldn't pass up options in the city for Olio's, it is certainly worth the drop in for the locals.

“Best cafe in St Leonards”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2013 via mobile

Definitely the best coffee shop in SL.
Menu is okay for lunch.
Service is good.
Coffee is good but expensive.
Wifi connection needs fiddling ... But it works.

“Close to the station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

This is right in the square of St Leonards train station. We've been a few times for dinner and it's always very nice. They always have a special on, and a few times have also had live music with a guy playing a guitar. The prices are reasonable and the food has always been good.

“Exquisite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

A rare find. Tucked away near St Leonards Railway Station is an outstanding little restaurant. The food is perfect and beautifully served. The waiters are quite knowledgeable about both the food and the wines on offer. The service is faultless. The price is reasonable.

I thoroughly recommend this restaurant for both lunch and dinner.
