Extremely friendly waitress. The four of us all thoroughly enjoyed our choice of breakfast. Two had the full English, I enjoyed my bacon and eggs toastie and the vegetarian amongst us enjoyed his choice. As he doesn't eat eggs he did request these be replaced with extra halloumi. We did think the portion size of the halloumi to be rather... More

We always travel with an open mind when trying new restaurants , The Blue Olive is one of those that doesn't exactly blow your mind but also doesn't completely disappoint . The food was ok , the service was friendly and you wouldn't be pained to go back if you had to .

We shared a selection of small of dishes to start...all were very pleasant....then for mains the majority of us had steaks whilst I opted for pasta. Everyone enjoyed their meals and it was very...

We love going to the Blue Olive: the service is great, the beers cold and the new bar is calling us to arms. The chicken Schnitzel with mushroom & tarragon sauce remains a firm favourite.

Dreadful food, dreadful service, poor wine list. Ok, it's holiday season, but the staff were just so disorganised, they didn't have a clue! I also maintain that any restaurant owner who can't be bothered to give their staff uniform to wear, is being disrespectful to the staff and customers. Even the bar staff were totally disorganised. None of the staff... More

Went with our children and all enjoyed the evening very much. Great service, excellent food and very vibe on a wonderful warm evening. No reservation necessary and although we stayed late, they were very accommodating.

Absolutely divine! Had the best experience here this holiday. Firstly the staff are welcoming and friendly. The food was divine and my favorite was the eggs Benedict, kudu steak and hake. (Yes we have eaten here a few times) I loved this spot!

It's a tough choice to make, with all the restaurants in close proximity gleaming at you but you won't go wrong with the Blue Olive. We were helped as soon as we got to the door and seated by a friendly waiter who did inform us that the orders might take longer than expected (due to the busy season I... More

The restaurant looks fine from the outside and a friendly lady greeted us at the door, however after that it went downhill. We only ordered 5 dishes, but the waiter/kitchen got 2 of those wrong (one starter and one main, which we had to send back to get exchanged for what we actually ordered). The water glasses we were given... More
