Visited for first time and I will definitely go back. Staff excellent-friendly, amenable and went out of their way to help. The food was excellent and cooked beautifully. Value for money,--definitely. I would recommend booking a table, we went on a Saturday night and it was busy.

My friends and I visit Longford every year at the end of August. We always return to the Black Olive for our final big dinner of the trip. Great food, amazing value and lovely staff. Looking forward to the 2017 visit already!
