We recently spent some time in Southend and popped into Oliver’s on the beach twice for breakfast. Food was lovely, staff friendly and views amazing

Absolutely fantastic! Popped down for a lunch with my Dad, we shared the sardines on toast which was delicious! Then I had Cod Tacos and Dad had Crab tart. My tacos were incredibly good, couldn’t fault it at all! The service was brilliant, they were...rushed off their feet but handled it fantastically! Thanks so much for a lovely meal 😃More

Im quite surprised by any negative reviews as the staff seem really helpful and nice and the bacon sandwich has really nice bread and lots of good quality bacon. I’ve been a couple of times and has been consistently good

Decided to pop in here for a breakfast and was met with possibly the biggest attitude on a waitress I've ever seen. Was sat in the back even though all the window seats where available it seems they are saved for regulars only. The cutlery...was thrown on the table and napkins on top at this point we was still able to ignore little miss attitude and try and enjoy the food. The first plate came out food looked on point!! My wife was asked if she wanted any sauce and she asked for brown which was then brought to the table.a few minutes later my plate followed and I was asked the same question.... well I'm more normal then my wife so I asked for tomato ketchup. Well this was literally equal to me telling the waitress the worst thing she had ever heard! Off she stormed got the ketchup and slamed it on the table so loud everyone turned round... quite embarrassing... She they went off to the serving station and complained to the other poor girl who had to spend her shift with, saying why didn't I ask for the ketchup at the same time as my wife... Honestly the food was nice bit absolutely ruined by someone who's people skills that struggle to match that of Kim Jon-un! Get someone front of house that can seperate her disgust for life from work! Will absolutely never return!! What a shame.More

Sandwiches were very wet, clearly chef made them using either defrosted bread or prepared them on a wet board. Took a long time for very amateur food. Nice teas.

I have never had a worse sandwich….the bread was soaking wet and had turned to mush. And a 40 minute wait! I would recommend you to eat anywhere in the area other then here! Seriously, don’t waste your money.

Wanted scrambled egg with breakfast, we can’t change the breakfast we were told ! so if you buy scrambled egg on toast, extra then you can add it ! Any establishment that can’t alter the type of egg you have if you want it isn’t...worth a visit. Breakfast was average asked for extra hot water to top up the teapot and hot water was supplied but only enough for half a cup, there were four of us. Much better breakfasts along the front where it’s not too much to trouble to have what you want, rather than having what they want you to have because the chef and owner can’t be bothered.More

It's amazing how much is packed into such a small space. Amazing fresh food from a large menu with amazing panoramic views of the sea (tide dependent). A delightful and memorable experience that I'll be sure to repeat!

Came for lunch 2 adults and 2 kids . Had a 10 minute wait for a table but it was worth it . Extensive menu & specials . The tiger prawn linguine was a good size and tasted as good as it looked . Kids...had penne pasta and sausage & chips . Pasta was a good size portion and quickly consumed. Good quality sausage and the chips are out of this world . I had a sandwich with a side of chips & garlic Mayo . The best chips I have eaten in years ! Good service, very friendly - well worth a 5 star rating .More
