Visited here recently for a romantic meal. We choose the set menu and the food was really good. You could tell it was home made and fresh. The service was good. The only downside was that the portion sizes were quite small for two people. We had to ask for extra bread twice. But a really nice Greek restaurant in... More

We visited the olive tree on new years day for a treat to ourselves. When we arrived we were seated straight away and offered drinks as you would expect. The service we received from the waitress was outstanding considering the restaurant was so full and busy, there was also a waiter and between them they managed to please everyone in... More

Traditional dishes such as mousaka, kleftiko, stifado was the stars of the menu. I had mix dips as a starter including tzatziki, tarama, melitzanosalata and in combination with the... More

We booked a table online for 7pm. Arrived at 655 but the waiter looked quite confused so we were passed a wine list while a table was found. Waited a few minutes but nobody came back to ask us what we would like whilst we wait. A waitress showed us to our table but didn't ask if we'd decided on... More

I came here with my family and I would definitely go again! The service we received was excellent and the staff really made sure everything was okay for us. The meal itself was great and exactly what we wanted, the chefs did a really good job of making sure it was to the highest standard possible. I would definitely return... More

We visited for an evening meal. Friendly and attentive staff. Very good authentic Greek menu . Had 3 courses, all absolutely delicious. All that was needed for complete perfection was a warm balmy Greek evening. Would go back and recommend.

The Christmas Season Lunchtime Menu as advertised on the website was not on the tables on the day of our visit. Instead, the Christmas Menus on the tables were dated 2015! Service was very slow - the total time taken for 3 courses and coffee was over 2 and a half hours. There were no apologies or information about the... More

Can't fault the deliveroo service although the food was barely warm. Ordered the tzaziki with pitta bread. The pitta bread was supposed to be warm, it wasn't. It was also stale and crispy. Ordered the pastries filled with cheese, but they were soggy and soft. Lavanta in West Park does much tastier and crispier pastries. Ordered the saganaki which was... More

Me and a couple of friends visited the Olive Tree and we were taking a back on how good the food and service is. The staff go above and beyond customer service and nothing is a bother, the food is delicious. We will definitely will be back very soon
