Visited Cambridge a few weeks ago and was glad I did because I discovered the Olive Grove with its traditional Greek Food. My meal was a stunning display of beautiful fresh ingredients at a reasonable price, in this case price was unimportant due to the standard of food I received. I must add that the staff in this establishment bring... More

Very disappointed. Booked a meal for my Husbands birthday they had double booked but pretended I hadn't booked the restaurant. Waitress was unhelpful and wouldn't offer a solution, shame as been there a few times and it's always been good. Ruined the night

We booked this restaurant based on the reviews and was certainly not disappointed. We were met with prompt and courteous service and started to look at the fantastic menu. The choice was excellent and the food was tasty. Francesca was lovely and added a real personal touch which made the evening more special. A good location and a place you... More

Lovely ambience, great menu of Greek classics with a bit of a twist - so a bit more refined than usual Taverna fayre. Staff knowledgeable and efficient. Good Greek wines too. Efharisto!

Friendly with a nice ambience, but rather noisy and understaffed. Sadly very few vegan options, terribly slow service on the most recent visit, and disappointingly flavourless stuffed vegetables and no salt or pepper on the table to spice it up.

Having identified Gluten free options on the menu it is a great pity that this hasn't been seen through to the end and provided Gluten free pittas (even available in Tesco ) as everyone knows breads are a large part of Greek eating. Despite this, the food was superb!

We originally wanted to go to another popular restaurant in Cambridge, but they were fully booked, so we finally got a table at Olive Grove, and we didn' regret it! Very cosy and personal restaurant with superfriendly, fast and competent staff. The food was plenty and very tasty. This is definitely one of the restaurants you have to visit when... More

It was our first visit back to Cambridge after a long absence and we wanted to eat somewhere a bit different - found this on TripAdvisor (thanks!) After an initial mix up with our booking (I'd suggest you double check your booking just in case - wouldn't want you to miss out), we arrived and found a small but well-spaced... More
