Really enjoyed the food and service the was excellent in a pleasant environment. Would recommend and will definately be returning to this lovely local restaurant.
Excellent food and very friendly staff, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to try authentic Greek food. I have been to Greece many times and it was just been back!
First time in olive affairs and the food was amazing and staff were really nice too plus it had Greek music on which reminds me of Greece my favourite place I would recommend any one to try this lovely place
Second time I've been to Olive Affair this time was to try evening menu.. It didn't disappoint.. Food was lovely really enjoyed it.. Staff lovely too.. Will defiantly go again
Very nice ! Food excellent even the Greek wine was nice as we all know the Greeks aren't renowned for their wine ! We had the mezze all were very flavoursome !
lovely food, very nice host....amazing wine ! they made us quite welcomed and the meal was very tasty all in all, great place can't wait to get back for the Gyros !!!
Fantastic food, friendly service, pleasant decor. Recommend the Ionos if you like Pinot Grigio! Only complaint is chairs could do with being more comfortable but thats not enough to deter us from coming back!
Fantastic food, lovely atmosphere. A wide range of Greek dishes on offer, portions are very generous. Child friendly and staff so welcoming. Would definitely return
Had a good meal - starter and main for two. Halloumi souvlaki for me and chicken souvlaki for the hubby. Waitress very friendly. Nice atmosphere, would definitely go again.
Food was really nice but service was slow and disorganised. There were no drinks menu and only one waiter to see to everyone, which is a shame because I think the place could do very well.
Had a good night. Nice to try some Greek wines. Food was lovely - a really nice change from the normal offerings in the city. Really friendly service
