We were visiting Waterford for winterval and stumbled upon the olive tree
It has a lovely ambience and lovely food
The portions are a little on the small size but were incredibly tasty
It was a little over priced for what you are getting, for example
An 18euro cheese board but only a few crackers - prawns in oil very good - meatballs very good
The staff looked rushed off their feet and had to be reminded to bring stuff out - nice place - would definitely go back

Love so much about this restaurant...staff always great and knowledgable...great ambience...interesting tasty food...visited recently on the Sunday evening of a long weekend...ordered several dishes as usual...asked if we could have some bread to accompany our selection to be told the only way we could have bread was by ordering another starter which included bread..which we did...but the bread was a couple of squares...surely it's not too much to ask to have bread with your meal...then we asked for Olives..sorry we are all out...THE OLIVE TREE has NO OLIVES ! lots of shops open on a Sunday in Waterford where an emergency supply could be purchased...just makes me wonder if they are getting a bit complacent

I recently visited the Olive Tree with my partner as it was close to our hotel and we both love tapas. Unfortunately we were both disappointed with our main courses. I ordered the chicken skewers where only one arrived and the meat was lukewarm. My partner ordered the meatballs and potato bravas with aioli sauce. The meat was again lukewarm and the aioli sauce was so salty it was horrible to eat. Desserts slightly made up for the main courses which were very tasty. Staff were very friendly and very accommodating but the food let us down.

Went on a weekend trip with my parents and were staying across from the restaurant so decided to go there on our last night. We really did save the best for last!! Amazing food, lots of choice, especially for me as a vegetarian. Super friendly and helpful staff. Very reasonably priced. Will definitely recommend and will be returning.

Been here a few years ago and returned to find it even better. Plenty of food in each bowl and very well presented and tasty.
The salmon with smoke beetroot and tomato tapenade was superb
