We visited The Olive Branch this evening whilst visiting Aberystwyth and we were not disappointed!!!!! We were a little worried at first as we had our 4 month old with us and knew the pram would take up a lot of room but the staff were very welcoming and we were able to get a table next to the window...

Stopped one Monday lunch time. Noted before we went in that it was cash only which is very strange in this day and age. Really friendly lady greeted us and we went upstairs. We liked the quirky decor and enjoyed the food but it did seem to take an age to be served and then for our order to come... More

The food is good. The location is perfect. The atmosphere is nice too. The service is fine.The only one thing is that they don't accept cards. You must have a cash with you or walk to a near cash machine. Greek cuisine lovely.

Bank Holiday weekend and what a treat it was to find that we could walk into the Olive Branch at 3pm in the afternoon on a Sunday to be welcomed by the most pleasant and patient hosts. With such a variety of greek food it took us a while to select from a menu where we were absolutely spoilt for... More

An off the cuff visit for an evening meal whilst on a birthday break. The staff were friendly and attentive, the food excellent, and the value for money easy on the wallet

Parking in Aberystwyth is mostly free and it is often difficult to find a place. We passed this restaurant, and spotted a car leaving a space quite near it. The Olive Branch did a good lunch for us, with good and genuine Greek cuisine. I agree with the recent review from the Jewells.

We went for an evening meal whilst having a night stop over in Aberystwyth. Food was just okay. Having sampled Greek food on Greek holidays it was nowhere near as good. The Beef stiffado was just like a beef casserole served with rice. Didn't really like the wine.

Very disappointing meal for myself and my husband. My husband had the slouvaka which was nothing like he has had before, in Greece and other Greek restaurants. Very bland and tasteless. I had the vegetarian mousepad - also bland and tasteless, mushy vegetables with a lot of sauce on the top. Would not revisit or recommend.

Thank berks5
