The Olive Tree

I agree that the Olive Tree has potential. The decor is nice, the waiting staff friendly and attentive, and the food pretty decent (apart from some overly fried onion rings I had with my starter) but service needs to be improved. I went there for my boyfriend's birthday. We ordered cocktails with our meal but had hardly touched them before the waitress came over with the starters. Then, immediately after we'd finished our starters, our mains arrived. It would have been nice to be able to sit back and relax with our drinks for a while. The restaurant wasn't busy so there was no need for such haste. Also, the waitress neglected to show us the specials board - we saw it at the end of our meal.

Chez Kristof

My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant for our anniversary - was warm outside so we were able to dine alfresco, which added to the atmosphere. The waiting staff were very attentive and the presentation of the food was impeccable. Enjoyed the starters and the desserts more than the mains but everything was done very well. Had a lovely evening.
