Having been to Olive and Oil many times we find the standard of service and food always very high. Nicely positioned with parking close by. The attitude of waiters is very professional as is the the quality of the food with numerous lunch specials.

Loved the music that tinkled away whilst we shared our dinner. The menu is extensive, the welcome olives were to die for and my meal was hearty and delicious.
