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.
Pleasant surroundings, friendly staff, limited but very good menu. The food is presented well and is tasty, with good sized portions, the overall ambience is relaxing. A restaurant worth visiting not just once.
