More about Olives 'n' Meze, London

Everyone loves Mediterranean food, right? And here’s Olives n Meze, ready to back up this bold claim. They’re doing it with that wonderfully classic choice of grilled meats and fresh vegetables, olive oil and rice, and, above all, amazing Meze. We could spend a whole Bank Holiday weekend feasting on the hot and cold appetizers masterfully prepared by Olives n Meze on Clapham High Road, and we’d still be craving that authentic and fresh flavour that’s telling apart the master from the student.

We’re especially fond of the sharing plates, the meze for two or more people to share. Try humus, tabouleh, halloumi and grilled sucuk, falafel, dolma and borek, and if you don’t know what either of these fantastic things mean you are well-advised to be already on your way to Olives n Meze on Clapham High Road. Prepare to be amazed by their BBQ specialties from the charcoal grill, be it chicken shish of lamb fillet mignon, T-Bone steak or a whole sea bass (indeed). Trying to eat lean and healthy? Mediterranean cuisine is big on veggy dishes, so give them a try. Great food and great atmosphere await.

Great food, amazing staff, fantastic evening. Worth noting that the 10% service charge added on to the bill does not get given to the staff on the floor. Therefore we opted to refused to pay it and tip the staff separately. Thanks Olives 'n' Meze!

This is the 1st time we've eaten here and we will definitely be returning back again. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced too. Our waitress who served us was very attentive, friendly and gave us fabulous service which added to our dining experience there. They make a very good espresso martini too.

Food was amazing but the staff kept opening the front door when it was already a perfect temperature inside the restaurant. As we were leaving we noticed they had some customers not eating sitting in the restaurant waiting around and we were the last people to leave. Friends staying for drinks we recon and attempting to get rid of us!

Very good food. Staters all very tasty and the mains were good size with very yummy vegetables. We went with our family and everyone was happy. Service a bit slow but no big deal as we were there on a Sunday afternoon.
