Everything about this restaurant is amazingly good. The setting and decor are classy and elegant. The food was absolutely fantastic. Freshly baked bread and a chef's choice starter were included. We could not fault this restaurant in any way.

i would recommend this restaurant 100%. The atmosphere is cosy, the chairs, tables etc are perfect and the staff are brilliant. The menu is very limited unless you go for the "taster" menu. There is four choices available for starters and four for the main course plus a dessert menu. The main course offering is one chicken based, one fish (roast cod loin) one meat (6 oz aged sirloin) and a vegetarian option. A special chef pre course dish with slices of ham (Parma?) goats cheese and salad leaves with cherry tomatoes is served. The main courses are accompanied with an abundance of vegetables and a mixed salad. The dessert menu includes Creme Brulee as well as ice cream and maybe cheesecake. You will not leave the place hungry that is for sure. All the dishes were superbly cooked and presented by a very professional waiting staff. The wine list is fairly comprehensive and I settled for a bottle of Italian Pinot Grigio. If you are in Exeter make a visit to the Olive Tree an absolute "must" you will not be disappointed

The service was excellent and just the right amount of attentive without being overbearing. The menu is fairly brief but wonderful. We were offered the pea and mint soup as an amuse bouche which was delicious. We both had the excellent fried goats cheese. I had steak which was cooked to perfection as was my husband's guinea fowl. We ended our dinner with creme brûlée and cheese, both were divine. We drank an excellent Malbec and sparkling water. The only thing I would change would be the scented candles in the bar, which although unlit were rather overpowering, the lavatories were also rather tatty. Other than that a wonderful evening.

The Olive Tree is a little known gem in a quiet corner of Exeter. It has a small menu but the food is of excellent quality and nicely presented. We will definitely go back!
