Beautiful food, great service and lovely setting in the heart of the lanes
Excellent food and friendly staff, looking forward to eating inside in the future
Amazing food and presentation, our waitress was very accommodating with us wanting to have a delicious espresso martini after our food. Would definitely recommend if you want fresh food in a cosy outdoor space.
Despite being incredibly busy (first Saturday since lockdown 3 restrictions eased), the service was impeccable. We were seated and served very quickly by friendly and patient staff, and the food, wine, and cocktails were amazing. I will definitely be back!
Amazing food, brilliant service! Can’t wait to go back
Delicious food and friendly staff.
Food is pretty expensive though.
Excellent food as always. Tasty food, the chicken thighs are really good and so are the calamari. We also love their lager, Estrella Galicia. The patio is lovely.
Olive Grove is ALWAYS a fine dining experience.
Very enjoyable lunch in the beautiful courtyard area out the front of the restaurant. Very friendly staff, delicious food and luckily very fortunate weather. Highly recommended
Best day ever all round good food and staff were lovely
Perfect experience for our first meal out of lockdown.
Really amazing food. Staff were nice - very attentive and fast. Thank you.
Nice spot out the wind. Great food and service ....
Lovely meal. Food was all great. Staff friendly and followed all covid regulations.
Great little restaurant tucked away in the lanes! The menu is just delicious and service is always good!
Excellent service had to sit outside because of the current restrictions. Was quite cold outdoor heaters would of helped.
Excellent food will defiantly return
All the small plates we tried we great! Seating was outside due to covid restriction. Would be curious to come back when indoor eating is an option.
Fabulous service, great food in a lovely courtyard protected from the wind.
Nice staff and decent service.
Great place to eat outdoors but heatlamps would have been welcome.
Wow! What an incredible meal !
The food was totally amazing - freshly prepared and delicious . All the dishes were beautifully presented and the service was excellent . We will definitely be returning next time we are in Brighton .
Lovely dinner after lockdown, good flavours, little bit overpriced, felt safe and welcomed.
Lovely. Can't wait to return again later today for second visit this week. Great food and really excellent service.
Whilst holidays are off the agenda for some time, sitting in the sun at the Olive Great is a momentary alternative!
The food is always amazing here and the staff are so friendly, which us the reason we have been coming here for years now.
I can't recommend it highly enough!
Lovely outdoor courtyard, food was excellent, shame it was a bit cold, but would definitely go again
Menu a little limited and small portions for the price. However it was very tasty and so wonderful to be out and enjoying life at this little gem of a place. I look forward to having access to the full menu later in the year.
Amazing venue, I felt like I was in Venice! Lovely wine, lovely attentive staff and great vegan options! Plant based dishes were a little overpriced but other than that I had a great time.
Lovely food and service in a beautiful courtyard - could easily imagine I was in the Med!
My new favourite place to dine.. perfect food, perfect wine, perfect ambience, excellent service :)
Great location and ambience. Very decent food with good value.
Nice food, good cocktails and the service was perfect, had a lovely afternoon meal. It was great!
Did not like it , won’t go back
The main was ok started dessert wasn’t great .
Over priced , the restaurant doesn’t look good inside
Wonderful food and people
Excellent food and lovely service on a cold night in Brighton.
Much better than expected. Service was spot on. Menus were traditional and not paper which was surprising especially during COVID times. Food was very good and enjoyable.
Food was really good, wine also was lovely. Shame about COVID as we really enjoy visiting the olive grove and it’s great atmosphere
food fresh, tasty , menu choice excellent. Friendly, will be coming back .
Another lovely meal out at The Olive Grove - highly recommended 😀
Superb freshly cooked food and great staff
Excellent choice for an evening with my wife friendly welcoming nice ambience not so busy and very attentive staff good choice of tapas but not to point where it was hard to choose excellent wine list and a good choice of other drinks all in all we were both very satisfied with our choices and the presentation was very good definatley recommended if you are in the area
