Olive & Feta is a small Mediterranean restaurant in Farsley but one with a very big heart. Alongside a warm welcome you can expect Turkish and Italian cuisine specifically to make up most of the menu that, if we’re honest, we can’t get enough of. As you can even tell just from the name, Olive & Feta is one of those restaurants that is honest and humble with the simple focus on proper food rather than frills or spills. You’ll find it on Town Street in Farsley, yet we’d go as far as to say it’s worth the trip from just about anywhere else in or around Leeds. It’s a small place, as we say, so it’s definitely best to reserve a table in advance.
So, by this point you know what Olive & Feta is all about in terms of food, vibe and approach, so we’ll go right ahead and give you a breakdown of what awaits you on the menu. As is the way with Turkish and Italian cooking, hot as well as cold starters are the best way to get the ball rolling and we’d recommend the grilled halloumi, the fresh mussels or an irresistible bit of duck pate. The dolma are also not to be missed, but to avoid having to make too many hard decisions, why not opt for a mixed meze starter for two and share to your heart’s content?
Locals of Farsley and, as we say, wider Leeds, go wild for the mains at Olive & Feta. The Moroccan spicy lamb smothered in a secret sauce is a win, as is the meatball casserole or any Turkish dish or kebab from the grill. Head to Town Street for pizzas – and Turkish-style pide – that are as beautiful to look at as they are to taste, or opt for a classic pasta dish in the way of linguine pescatore or penne arabiata. Olive & Feta, we assure you, will have you smiling from ear to ear. Farsley loves it, and we know you will, too.
this restaurant is beautiful inside, very comfortable and a lovely atmosphere. The staff are friendly and at attentive without being over the top. The food was lovely, so much vegetarian choice which was good for myself. I would highly recommend olive and feta and look forward to visiting again
Olive & Feta, Farsley - comfortable, relaxing environment. Helpful, friendly and efficient staff. Excellent food and service. We will certainly be going back for more.
Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted by a friendly waitress who showed us to our seats and remained very friendly and attentive throughout our time in the restaurant. The menu is very good with a wide range of foods to choose from and the waitress was very patient with us as we could not decide what to have. We were given complimentary balloon bread which tasted just like it does when sat in a restaurant in Turkey. The starters came at the same time as this which was really good timing. Following the starters we had a nice break until the mains came. Which is quite fortunate due to the very generous portion sizes. The meals were presented very well and tasted absolutely delicious. Overall I rate it 10/10, we will definitely return in the near future. Highly recommend.
