We have been regular visitors to Olive and has always been one or fave places based on food, atmosphere and service. Sad to say the food today was not the best although the restaurant was very busy ... disappointed and just a bit underwhelmed. Service and atmosphere was fab as always. Time to up your game with the menu guys.

We wish we had eaten here as the food is cooked to perfection. The only criticism is that the music was too load and therefore the background noise was too loud to have... More

We went here for a 4 year olds birthday with family and friends as they did a good menu for children and they could make their own pizzas. The children loved every minute of it and the adults enjoyed their food also!

The staff here are the friendliest I have experienced, the food is very good, and well worth the prices, they have a members card which brings the price right down

When I worked in Liverpool the Olive Press was a regular haunt (I reckon at least monthly), but I hadn't been here for nearly 5 years before this trip and was keen to go and see what it was like now so I dragged my best mate along for an earlyish dinner ahead of watching Everton in a nearby pub....

My wife and I went with two friends for dinner. Although very busy the standard of service and food was very good. Presentation of the food was very good and how it tasted was excellent. All three courses were of a high standard. The ambiance of the restaurant is bright and cheerful and very comfortable. Well worth a visit.
