I hadnt eaten here previously but went along on a family lunch on the recommendation of my Sister in Law. Everybodys dish was top drawer. I had spicy meatballs & they were delicious. Fantastic array of flavours right through. Good size portions. Will definitely be back and look forward to working my way through the menu. (Not at the same... More

I have been to this place many times with friends and family, it's at a great price during the lunch hours during the week and the food is the best in town. Perfect for anyone who wants to try ethnic food. The owner and staff a very polite and love to talk.

Great grub! Looking for something different? Then call in to the Olive Tree. Where else would you get an authentic Mediterranean meal for less than a tenner? Try it - my guess is that you'll be back.

Have at the Olive Tree a few times recently and was very surprised with the quality of the food and the service. I also found it very reasonable a three course lunch for E10 hard to believe. The entrance does not do it justice, once inside it is beautiful.

Nice family day out was finished off here. Mustafa is a fantastic host. He is very good with kids. The chicken korma & crab cakes were top. On payment kids were given a treat. 10/10.

The food in the Olive Tree is excellent, always tasty, something for everyone - even my picky 16 year old teenager, who loved the spicy chicken dish. The falafel are delicious, fish cakes very good as was everything else we had. Mustapha is a lovely man, and does great work for refugees as well as running this little gem, and... More

If you're looking for good tasty food presented well this is a good spot for you. As nice as the food was, I won't be returning. I don't like the outside or interior, it's quite frankly... tacky. Don't like the setting, no warmth or welcoming atmosphere etc - could all do with a makeover! Also, water jugs and glasses provided... More
