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.

Mediocre - service OK, food nothing to write home about, infact the lasagne looked (and apparently tasted) like a pre prepared readymeal. Expensive for what it was. Would not recommend, nor return.

I had dinner at 9.30. Service was very good, food was ok, but not great. I found it a little expensive for the type of food.

We dined early evening, and the ambiance was lovely, the staff were friendly and hospitable.

Food was absolutely delicious, and the main menu was varied enough to cater for all tastes.

The set menu choices were...well, how do you put it, other than completely uninspiring......shame really.....probably a trick missed there.

Happy hour made the more than decent house wine, worth every penny.

I would certainly recommend a visit...so long as you are not looking for 'set menu' value.
