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.

    Being Italian i have booked this restaurant using the tastecard before going to a concert with Italian tenors singing at the Halbert Hall. The meal complemented an Italian evening with my British husband! The ambience was pleasant and the staff was attentive but mainly the food was delicious. The only downside is that the portions were quite small which is fine for us as we prefer quality to quantity. The service charge was 20% which was quite unexpected. Overall I would recommend this restaurant. I would definitely go back.
