Olive & Vine has been serving the leafy Manchester suburb of Didsbury, in one form or another, from its Wilmslow Road premises since the 1970s, where current proprietor Dimitris began work as a barman. Forming a more than healthy attachment to the site led Dimitris to take the reins himself, and in 2011 he cut the ribbon on the revamped Olive & Vine restaurant, where he now shares his passion for Mediterranean cuisine with a growing legion of loyal (and not any longer just local) followers.
Olive & Vine spans the length and breadth of the Mediterranean, offering up a peerless selection of tapas, meze, kebabs, special house dishes, desserts and drinks to Didsbury and diners who come to this Wilmslow Road restaurant from throughout the wider Manchester area. Fantastic food and drink deals are regularly chalked up here, and there’s even a great Sunday menu that blends the British tradition of the Sunday roast with equivalents poached from Greek and Middle Eastern cuisines. The Greek rosto, for example, consists of lamb on the bone cooked in red wine and tomato with Mediterranean herbs, something best rounded off with some sweet and delicate baklava. Plus, kids eat for free!
Olive & Vines exquisite tapas menu takes its cues from Lebanese, Greek, Italian, Turkish and, naturally, Spanish culinary traditions, making this menu a great way to explore Mediterranean food with friends and family. Even more ambitious are the meze platters on offer at this Didsbury, Manchester Mediterranean restaurant, with the ability to pick a platter or create your own from the options available. Middle Eastern kebabs are another great option, a great accompaniment to the huge range of imported wine and beer available from the bar. If you too become a fan of Olive & Vine, consider taking your next celebration to their Wilmslow Road restaurant – for a fixed price per head, Dimitris will help curate a feast you won’t quickly forget.
Really nice environment and very good meal. Good service so no complaints at all. Reasonably priced and good selection of drinks. Mezes particularly enjoyable and portions were generous.
We visited Olive and Vine in Didsbury on Sunday evening 11th November . Our experience was excellent from start to finish. We enjoyed the ambience, the wonderful live jazz band and comfortable seating area on arrival. We ordered wine which came straight away and then ordered from the Greek meze menu. The wine list is perfect for the different menus and we chose a white Rioja for our meal. The choice of food was amazing, we had chosen from all parts of the menu (fish, vegetables, and meat). The sauces that came with the cod, lamb and chicken were delicious. I'm only sorry they ran out of the beef stifado as this is a favourite. Portion sizes meant the meal was very good value, we are definitely returning!
Great Greek tapas, always makes me feel like being home. I have tried most of the tapas now, and I can say that (at least the Greek ones) taste exactly like the ones you have in Greece. A bit disappointed with the Greek dessert platter, as the saragli was a bit dry; too much yogurt also. Try the ‘tiropita’ (cheese wrapped into filo pastry) or the dolmades (rice and herbs into vine leafs). To complete the experience, get a mythos, Greek lager, or a boutari! Besides the excellent food you will find a very friendly service and a very nice environment. I think also the prices are very reasonable, great value for money. As always, can’t wait for the next time!!!
