Cozy with a great atmosphere and super friendly staff. Our server was very helpful explaining the many options they had and their menu has a great selection of vegetarian options. We tried 6 different Tapas and they were all very good. Also they have craft beers which let us sample local options. Highly recommend it

We have eaten here a few times and so far have not been disappointed. Their share platters are amazing and are slightly different each time. There is a great range of choices on the menu. the staff are very helpful and attentive. Good choice wines.

The Olive Tree has a really nice atmosphere and the staff are helpful and friendly. The food is amazing, but it is on the pricy side.

Visited on a Saturday night when it was full. We waited some time to order which we didn't mind but then it was disappointing to be told that there would be a delay with our food as they were also serving a large party. While the staff were very polite and pleasant, they did get part of our order wrong... More
