The waiters are very nice and friendly, but the food quality is slightly disappointing.

One of my favourite restaurants in London & fairly priced. So I’ve been here a few times and never disappointed, but every season there’s a menu change and I just want to say by far this is one the best menu they’ve offered. Fish and seafood quality is so high and even the vegetarian starters and mains were extremely exquisite in flavour. A talented chef!

Good lunch from the set menu, which gave a choice of 3 items for each course. The starter of Italian bread cooked with ham pieces was yummy as was the hake for a main course ( we had to pay extra for veg) and the pudding of pineapple, coconut ice cream and chocolate shavings was absolutely delish. Service was generally attentive but the food was very slow in arriving. Wine was a bit pricey. Apart from that, would definitely go again.

The restaurant seemed busy and distracted. The waiter was very interested in whether we were happy.

Had a nice meal at Olives Restaurant with a friend before going to a concert in Royal Albert Hall. The food is really nice but thought the service could have been a bit better. The restaurant was basically empty when we arrived but took quite some time before someone came and took our order and it was not like their were busy.

Had a nice dinner in the Olives Restaurant before going to a concert in Royal Albert Hall The restaurant is very convenient located just next to Gloucester Road Tube station and the ambiance is very nice as well. Staff was friendly and service minded and the 2 pasta dishes we had were both nice and just the right size. Would come back again.
