About Olive Affaire Greek Restaurant

Inspired by her time living abroad in Greece, restaurateur and foodie Jean Oliver decided to open up Olive Affaire to share her passion with the people of Sunderland. Having learned how to cook from the village elders during her stay on the Greek Isles, Oliver aims to share the most authentic dishes with the local community. Serving up authentic Greek cuisine made from scratch, Olive Affaire Greek Restaurant is a humble, family-run restaurant that honours the traditions of authentic Greek cuisine, a favourite among local foodies as well as Greek customers who always feel right at home when visiting the restaurant. You’ll find it located on John Street in the city centre – booking a table in advance is recommended.

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!

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
