An off the cuff visit for an evening meal whilst on a birthday break. The staff were friendly and attentive, the food excellent, and the value for money easy on the wallet

Parking in Aberystwyth is mostly free and it is often difficult to find a place. We passed this restaurant, and spotted a car leaving a space quite near it. The Olive Branch did a good lunch for us, with good and genuine Greek cuisine. I agree with the recent review from the Jewells.

We went for an evening meal whilst having a night stop over in Aberystwyth. Food was just okay. Having sampled Greek food on Greek holidays it was nowhere near as good. The Beef stiffado was just like a beef casserole served with rice. Didn't really like the wine.

Very disappointing meal for myself and my husband. My husband had the slouvaka which was nothing like he has had before, in Greece and other Greek restaurants. Very bland and tasteless. I had the vegetarian mousepad - also bland and tasteless, mushy vegetables with a lot of sauce on the top. Would not revisit or recommend.

We have been visiting the Olive Branch for many years for lunch or for an evening meal. Lunch has the allure of their omelette selection, and with an evening meal, a small carafe of ouzo with a jug of water and ice is my idea of heaven. The tarmasalata is delicious and the aubergine dip is my husband's favourite. The... More

We visited as a group of 4 for a meze lunch. The service was excellent and the food was very authentic. We especially enjoyed the king prawns, sagnaki and the Nic of homemade dips and breads. Very reasonably priced too!

We had lunch at the Olive Branch last Sunday and ate off the lunch menus and the full menu. We really enjoyed some super Greek food and my sons toasted sandwich was delicious with plenty of filling. Would thoroughly recommend eating here. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly

We stopped off in Aberystwyth on our way south for a quick meal for lunch. I love Greek food (having spent a lot of time in medditeratin) and the food here was great. Unfortunately the one waitress wasn't very welcoming and made us feel pressured; taking our order as she leaned over us waiting impatiently. At the end of our... More
