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!
Great location and ambience. Very decent food with good value.
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
Good waiter, he was good, as good as good can be. He looked after us. Now I have to type some more words
Quality of food and menu choice not quite up to the very high standard we have enjoyed on many previous visits. Some dishes could have been a bit hotter. Great that it was a buzzing and lively atmosphere, but just spoilt a bit by an extremely loud adjacent table though this was not the restaurants fault.
Felt the space between tables should have been increased a bit given the Covid situation.
Service was very good.
A lovely atmosphere, friendly and helpful service a d absolutely delicious food.
It is like walking into a Mediterranean holiday.
Food is great, they have healthy options too.
We had a great time, thank you.
We went on what we thought would be a busy Saturday but it was quite quiet. Initial impressions where the restaurant was a bit tired - decor etc. But we were warmly greeted and the service was excellent. The food and wine was delicious. The bill seemed a bit lumpy for a lunch but that was as much down to how much we ordered I think. Overall very enjoyable.
Amazing greek food to share, in the heart of the South Lines of Brighton. Lovely staff and great service.
Not quite priced on a students budget, but we still enjoyed it as a treat!
We would all highly recommend.
They have outdoor seating which would be perfect in the hight of summer.
Excellent food, atmosphere and service, a great dining experience.
Lovely meal as always!!! Really have appreciated this restaurant during Covid
Amazing restaurant with authentic Mediterranean dishes. Service was friendly and thorough and the food was absolutely delicious. First time in this restaurant despite living in Brighton all my life, we will definitely be adding it to our list to visit regularly!!
First time there and it was incredible. Definitely coming back....
Amazing food, our favourites were the Salt Baked Cod and Prawns. Service was quick and friendly
Really excellent food. Restaurant is a bit sombre on a rainy day but the food and service were amazing and I think eating outside in Summer must be fantastic. Price is really good for such consistently good food.
We have been to the Olive Grove for lunch several times - so thought we would go there for dinner on Saturday 24th October.
The food and service were exceptional -we had a lovely evening a will be back soon,
Extremely nuce octopus abd croquettes.
This was our 3rd visit to this lovely resturant. It's perfect for a family meal or catch up with friends. The staff are lovely & never rush you to order. The food and drink selection is very good. My only suggestion to them would be to change the hand dryer dryer to paper towels especially at this moment in time.
Lovely food, great service. Had some vegetarian plates and the flavours were great. Will definitely go back next time we’re in Brighton.
Good food though would have preferred a better choice of wines. Would definitely recommend
Enjoyable evening with good food, attentive staff, COVID compliant but still ensured a lovely dining experience - well done to staff and management
We had a lovely time on Saturday. The staff were lovely and helpful. The place is really nice. The food was amazing - love that there was lots of veggie options. The food came quickly aswell.
Amazing food! Cannot wait to return in the summer!!
This was our third visit - and we'll be back. Amazing food and service - and felt very safe as the restaurant is spacious and distanced. Thank you
Great very nice
Great tasting food and service. I would go back again.
We liked the home cooked style of the food here. Flavours are good too. However there is a real lack of green. There's no side salads and there's no simply steamed green vegetables. The food is either fried or stewed. I wouldn't go here again until they make the menu less brown and more green. The people who work in this place seem pleasant. Some patio heaters for outside winter dining would be good.
The food is absolutely amazing. Do yourself a favour and order the cauliflower with hummus.
Amazing. Mouth watering, exquisite dishes. Absolutely delicious. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, friendly service. Would definitely highly recommend.
