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.

  • (((** 28 November 2016 by Lesley Moreton from London

    A bit disappointed to be seated in the bar, and not the restaurant. No white table cloth. As in picture on your website.
    However the tea stand, was very adequate, smaller portions of everything meant you could eat everything. Scones were superb.
    And a huge pot of tea!

    Very pleasant lunchtime experience. Food and service excellent. Nice atmosphere and very clean, including loos!
    Only 15 minutes easy walk to the Royal Albert Hall.
