Been coming here for the last five years whilst on holiday and never disappointed! Food was excellent, service extremely efficient and owners always friendly! We both had a three course meal and it was faultless. Worth booking if you want good food at good prices!

Hi there - sorry for delay responding. We don't get alerts from the Q&As for some reason! I'm afraid we don't allow dogs in the restaurant.

A la carte is individual items from the menu, not the set menu, which is for example, two or three courses for a set price.

The Olive Tree in St Merryn opens for dinner from Tuesday to Saturday from 6.30pm). Our food is largely influenced by Mediterranean cuisine and, indeed, anywhere you might find olive trees growing. We focus on making the most of the wonderful fresh produce available in Cornwall, and we source our fish, meat, dairy and most of our fruit & vegetables from local producers. Reservations are recommended, and please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary requirements. Please note that the restaurant opens in March through to December - please contact us for specific dates.
