“Best Food i've had in ages, really happy place and friendly owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

My husband and I stumbled on this little restaurant and I am so pleased we did. I had the Smoked Salmon Pasta and can honestly say I haven't eaten anything as good in a long time. The owners of the place were so happy and welcoming and really made us want to return, not just to the lake district but specifically to the restaurant. Wonderful! It was very reasonably priced and definitely worth a trip!

“Intimate and inviting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

We ate twice during our stay in Bowness and on both occasions were not disappointed. The food was beautifully cooked and presented and the staff were very welcoming. We will return again, the Lakes are one of favourite haunts and have been numerous times.
Fat Olives is well worth a visit.
Pleanty of choice and specials that don't break the bank.

“Lovely cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

We popped into this little cafe as it was so cold outside, and had the most delicous thick hot soup and then a sandwich which was very generous with it's fillings.

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. Not too expensive, really friendly waiters and incredibly tasteful Italian food!
