I was taken to Olive by my partner after seeing the restaurant when walking down Ecclesall Road and reading the menu. The interior is relaxed, and the tables are well enough spaced out that we felt we had our privacy. I had one of the fish specials and my partner had a beef pasta dish. The food was delicious, freshly cooked and served at a comfortable time - we didn’t feel rushed and we weren’t waiting excessively either. We had focaccia to start which I’d highly recommend! Overall a lovely dining experience and we will definitely go again.

We had a table of 8 booked on a busy saturday night. The staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the Moroccan dish had sold out due to it being so popular. This lead most of us towards a sea bass special which was delicious! It came with muscles and king prawns a lovely sauce and a side of veg or chips. I opted for the veg as thought it would be a bit healthier! We had several bottles of the primitivo red wine which was also very nice and went down a treat. Nice layout to the restaurant, not massive, but not tiny either. Nice bustling atmosphere made the evening go a little too fast. Would highly recommend!

Hello Dave,

Thank you for leaving a review of your recent visit to Olive.

It was great to see you again and meet your family. We are so pleased you all enjoyed your evening.

It was unfortunate that we had sold out of the Moroccan lamb, it has become very popular and the demand is increasing week by week! But we are very pleased you all enjoyed the Seabass from the special board instead.

We look forward to seeing you all soon

Thank you

Freya

Came here with my family tonight, food was amazing and staff attentive/friendly. To start we had the fried seafood, prawn catalana and mushrooms - all generous portions and tasty.
For mains 3 of us had surf and turf which were cooked perfectly. My dad had the calzone which was a good portion. We also brought our own wine and there was a fair £3 corkage charge.
Have dined here twice now and each time have been very impressed. Will definitely be returning soon!

We dined here on Friday evening for the first time. The place was packed and had a great atmosphere. The food was delicious, I'd highly recommend the lasagne. We will definitely be returning.
