We did the cinema and 2 course meal deal. Our starter creamy stilton mushrooms was the best starter i have had in a very long time in any restaurant or hotel. Staff were lovely and friendly too,

I popped into FOB this evening for a lovely meal. It had a very appealing menu as I saw outside, and has good wi-fi which I needed. I'm amazed at the lack of any wi-fi in eateries in this area. Something tells me they are spoiled for business from tourism around here and don't bother to provide wi-fi in a... More

This is a lovely restaurant serving great food. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic Italian meal. The atmosphere is great and the restaurant was very busy but we didn't feel rushed at all. If I am ever back in the area then I would definitely visit here again.

Came here on a Saturday evening (make sure you book a table). Looks nothing from the outside but those are normally the restaurants that are the best. Looks.m really small when you first walk in but then there are a few more tables down a small set of stairs. Lovely atmosphere and our order was taken very quickly and the... More

We arrived in Bowness about 7pm and wanted some food. The first two places we tried both closed about 7ish but Fat Olives was open. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. I had pasta and it was probably the best I have ever tasted. The seafood risotto was fantastic too. I would... More

Great food, service and ambience. We shared a tapas platter to start with and it was delicious. Only criticism was that it was very bright!

Absolutely great. Staff very friendly and helpful. The ambience of this Brasserie was really lovely . The food was excellent all cooked to order so everything was piping hot. You could also see the kitchen and see food being cooked. The music playing was in the background so you good hear yourself speak. So all in all we were at... More

Recently enjoyed dinner here one midweek evening in November. Immediate impressions were so positive as the welcome was friendly, warm and genuine. It was still early evening so though not busy a few tables were already occupied. We enjoyed a tapas selection for two persons with a carafe of wine. It was a decent choice of cold meats, salad, dips,... More
