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.
Lovely restaurant, friendly staff, great atmosphere and tasty healthy food. Really enjoyed it and will definitely be back. Really pleased to find this local restaurant.
This restaurant is THE most authentic Turkish food I’ve eaten outside of my families kitchen. Amazing food. Amazing service and value for money. My new favourite!!
This restaurant is one of the best we have ever eaten at, we are lucky to have this on our doorstep, quality food, fantastic friendly staff and their refurbishment is a credit to them, well done guys
Amazing food, amazing service would 100% recommend to anyone. The new renovations look fab too definitely worth a visit for any occasion. Well done guys!
The restaurant was recommended by friends, but we thought it was Greek. We had people staying with us for the weekend so decided to try Olive and Feta. From the moment we walked through the door we had the warmest welcome. One of the owners explained the special board and looked after us throughout the evening. We will keep this little local gem for special occasions, as we found it a bit pricey, but a lovely night out on a par with our other favourite restaurant, Brasserie Blanc in Leeds. Olive and Feta is much nearer home and easier to get to. Highly recommended.
Morrocon spiced lamb was amazing. We were told by waiter beforehand that some people find very rich. It was a very rich sauce but tasted beautiful. Restaurant was very quiet but it was a Monday evening. Staff were very attentive and answered any questions we had about food.
Absolutely amazing night, gorgeous food and great service and staff. Evening let us move tables and made us more comfortable with an extra table. Couldn't recommend enough, and very much looking forward to our next visit. 10 out of 10
The food was excellent, the service was equally as good. There were a couple of Christmas parties in the restaurant & we were expecting delays, but we didn't have to wait at all. We definitely intend to go back.
Lovely food, friendly staff. Attention to detail Been before and certainly going back, took family who hadn't and they can't wait to return again. Menu very clear apart from name of the dish too dark. Front of house staff mentioned it's going for reprint.
Great range of food, the Turkish dishes are especially good and the mezze. Staff are very obliging and accommodate dish alterations. Atmosphere is nice and relaxed. I’ve been here several times now and would definitely return.
