    Have been to Olive Grove several times now. Every time; - food has been delicious. Really good variety of menu options, great flavours. - we've been looked after really well. Staff are friendly, helpful, willing to help. They have always made us feel very welcome and as though they are really pleased we're there - most recently, sat outside in courtyard at lunchtime - a real sun trap, sheltered from breeze, right in the heart of the Lanes. Can't wait to go back.

    I really like the Olive Grove - been going for 5 years. Unpretentious, good wine list, good service, good range of mediterranean food. However, last night's visit was a bit disappointing - the menu choice is now entirely Greek food with no Spanish or Italian plates to complement. Whilst I like Greek food, the overall effect is less choice and I could have gone to a Greek restaurant for a fully Greek experience (half our dishes had chips added to them which we had not ordered and were not listed on the menu description). Also the prices have gone up which I guess is down to increased input costs. So it's still OK but not as good as in previous years - please reinstate the Spanish and Italian influences!

    Easy to book, never been before and was very happy with my choice of somewhere to eat. 5 dishes between 2 of us was plenty. Food was lovely along with the service. And I loved the venue. Very happy indeed..

    Appreciate its tapas style … the food turns up when it’s ready but one main meal arrived 30 minutes after the other main meal …. It can’t be that hard to serve two main meals at once….

    Another lovely meal at the Olive Grove. The food is always excellent and very good waitresses. We sat inside despite it being a lovely day hence the noise was insignificant. My only gripe would be adding 12 1/2% service charge plus I’m not sure this goes to the staff. I would prefer the choice of not paying service charge and adding our own tip in cash before we get the bill.
