Loved the food here there was four of us and all very happy with our choices. Wood fired pizza beautiful. All the sides were yum too. Clay pot prawns yum. If I had to complain about anything would be the staff not asking us for more drinks. We had to ask them twice!

Had lunch at Fig & Olives - Cowes. Food was great - it was a very enjoyable meal. Décor was very pleasant. Staff were very nice but service was rather slow. Would have ordered a desert but thought as the entrée and main meal was slow to ask for a desert we would have been waiting for some time.
However, as the food was so good we would definitely go again.

My adult children treated my wife and I to a Saturday night dinner in mid July,2013.

The renamed,re-furbished restaurant had not long been re-opened.

Comfortable, reasonable decor, very difficult to get a drink, food did not arrive in a timely manner so that we could eat to-gether. One meal was great, one was good, one was OK, one was below standard and three were very ordinary with the meatballs cold in the centre.

As a group we put this down to "teething" problems and decided to pay and left a brief comment at the bar on the way out. It should have been obvious to the staff that something was wrong as five meals were left less than half eaten, but no comment.

Every other person I have spoken to has been very complimentary about their experiences at this restaurant. Our experience seems to be the exception, not the rule. We may have to try again when the memory of our first visit has dimmed.

The menu probably has more spelling/gramatical errors than any other that I have seen. This is probably an indicator of the checks and balances that need to be put in to effect overall.

I went to the Fig and Olive after the recent refurbishment, with a group of ladies and we were all very happy with our meals. I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly and was reasonably priced. The staff were great also and I would definitely be back and recommend to others.
