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.

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!
