Amazing place to visit
Great combo of Greek and Spanish
Very welcoming and friendly service
We have lunched here a number of times over the past year always sitting in the open courtyard. The food is always very good (although the menu is more limited at the moment). The staff are extremely friendly and do not rush you. Generally a lovely experience
Excellent service and dietary advice as usual! Thanks
Amazing food and service! Recommend the croquettes, patatas bravas and the octopus!
Expensive small plate of food to share, nothing special for the asking price. my cod was not even seasoned. Busy during lunch though.
We booked this quite last minute and we’re pleasantly surprised. Great food, really authentic mix of Greek, Italian and Turkish. Delicious! The atmosphere was great. Service was OK- very polite and friendly but a little understaffed. Would recommend!
Lovely yet food a bit cold yet we were outside due to Covid. Staff and venue lovely. Made space as we were early. I will visit again and recommend.
Staff were very attentive. Food and drinks were lovely. Overall vibe of outdoor dining was very nice.
Very small portions and a bit overpriced, but all delicious and lovely staff
Best meal I’ve had in a long time! Unreal service and the food was incredible.
Nice meal. We have been visiting this restaurant for some years so we were a little surprised to see such a reduction to the menu but considering we are only just out of lockdown it is understandable. Chicken thighs are spectacular.
Our second visit to the Olive Grove. Amazing food and cocktails. Happy, attentive staff... Can't wait to go back
Lovely food, great location, friendly staff. Felt like I was on holiday!
great cocktails and Mediterranean 'small plates' and a reasonable selection of bottled beers. big outdoor space - useful these days! No heating or blankets so got cold!
The dishes were small and overpriced, although very nice. Outside dining was cold and, as they make clear, there are no outside heaters nor blankets provided - so needed to dress warmly.
Really delicious plates with a Greek flavour! We would definitely recommend it.
Good food, but was incredibly expensive for what it was, my husband got 3 king prawns! A shame as we had very good meals here in the past for a reasonable price. I understand things will be more due to covid, but the lack of side options (chips were almost £7) and salads were around£10, and no side option.
The service was good and the waiters were helpful and friendly.
Was cold and the outside had no heaters.
Really lovely, wine & food was delicious and overall great experiance and atmosphere.
Good service from friendly young staff. The food is plentiful, well made and presented.
We have been there a few times and its very consistent, great informal dinning
I really enjoyed eating here, the staff were friendly and helpful. The service was great and the food came really quickly!
Lovely lunch with friends, friendly staff and fresh delicious food. Definitely recommend!
The best food in Brighton
We had a great time. Lovely food, really welcoming staff and a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend!
We had a lovely time at olive grove. Great food and wine.
Very good food, nice wine, and it was under cover (as outside)
I was at last able to meet up with 5 friends for a long awaited get together The Olive Grove didn’t disappoint
The food was delicious with a good choice and cooked and presented well
The aubergine stew and grilled butternut squash were very tasty to name just a couple.
Always worth a visit to a very friendly well run restaurant
Great friendly unpretentious restaurant tucked away in the lanes.
We have been regulars at the Olive Grove and we were looking forward to once again dining there. We were disappointed that the dishes seem to be smaller but are much more expensive. We left the restaurant feeling some what cheated and hungry!
Good food and drinks with quick and friendly service!
Brilliant to be able to have a table up on your balcony. Still outside but slightly protected. Fantastic food and service.
Exceptional food and lovely staff. Would definitely recommend
Really fantastic food, drink and atmosphere. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming - will definitely be back soon
We will be booking yet again - such a lovely place to be after lock down !! Lovely food and service!!
Fabulous food and setting loved it! Felt like I was on holiday with the wonderful food and the courtyard setting would definitely come back.
Fantastic service. Cannot thank the staff enough. Fast professional highly recommend. Thank you for looking after us
Great spot in a great location. Lovely food and friendly and efficient service.
Experience slightly spoiled by the cold.
Outside heaters would have made a massive difference!
The food and service were fab. Could use some heaters/cover while we have to eat outside but lovely otherwise. I’ll be back.
Amazing staff and food is not bad but bit pricy, when i called they said they had outdoor heating but they don't
Good food, fast service, attentive staff, great outdoor venue
