Boasting an AA Rosette to its name, Olives Restaurant and Bar offers authentic Italian food. Head chef, Davide Di Croce serves up stunning dishes in the bright dining room, while the bar brings a selection of indulgent cocktails.

While options range from risottos to salads, staple favourites at Olives restaurant remain the same, with tomato coulis spooned on top of a grilled sea bass fillet with a fennel, orange and artichoke salad. Creative options include the roasted pigeon breast with a lentil and pancetta mixture, doused in a Marsala jus. Sensational desserts on the Olives menu showcase originality; hazelnut parfait is served with crushed caramelised nuts and mixed berry compote.

Casual elegance oozes from every detail at Olives Bar and Restaurant in London. Dine on an ‘Italian twist’ afternoon tea amongst deep red curtains, elaborate lightshades and sweetly-potted plants on tables.

Olives in South Kensington is less than a 1-minute walk from Gloucester Road Tube Station.

    Excellent location and dining experience. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious along with a good selection of Italian wine - sometimes difficult to find in London.

    Excellent service and good quality food. Was booked in for 8pm but was given an earlier table without an issue, had the bruschetta for starter which was very nice, but nothing out of the oridinary, however the "Petto di pollo piccante con insalata di fregola" was a fantastic dish. I will be back.

    The atmosphere was good and the food was excellent. I had the fried calamari and shrimps, a pasta dish and the 3 dolci dessert.

    Its a trendy place, great for private dining, food is good. Although, with the 50% off after adding on vat and service charges it's not good value for money.
