This is our 2nd visit to the Olive this week we chose completely different menu options so have over the two visits tried around 10 dishes. Each and everyone of them have been delicious. I would advise anybody to give this place a try.

Interesting and varied menu. Staff were very friendly and cheerful. The seafood paella was excellent. There being six of us there was plenty of trying each others choices. All the dishes were very flavoursome.
