Very nice staff who make you feel welcome, fast service and great to know the food is all fresh( I deliver to this restaurant as my job)
Really fast service and the staff were very friendly and welcoming.
The food was so tasty and delicious, so many flavours and everything was cooked to perfection, and it all came to a great price too.
The restaurant was clean and had a good atmosphere.
I’d definitely come back and I recommend Olive Grove to anyone looking for a nice place for dinner.
Amazing food! Great service! What more can I say?! A really great meal and we will definitely be back.
Very friendly atmosphere, nice food, great location
Amazing food and outstanding service
Lovely tapas, beautiful setting tucked away in the lanes.
We had some amazing food there last night, staff we’re very friendly. Quick service and quality food.
We loved it! Amazing food and service. Will definitely be coming back!
A delightful laid back place depsite being in the centre of town with quiet courtyard, fresh healthy Mediterranean food with lots of veggie options. Each plate is very reasonable and 4 plates is a feast!
We had a very relaxed long lunch in the sun listening to the music while enjoy fabulous food
What a perfect setting on a summer's day, sitting in the shade with a cool glass of wine.
The food was amazing but service was slow. Waited a long time for drink when we first arrived. Overall had a lovely time.
Slow service, which could have been excused since they were slightly shorter staffed, however, later tables had food served before we’d even had our order taken.
Food itself was perfectly adequate albeit rather basic and also under seasoned.
Lovely outdoor seating space. Nice wine.
Potential to be so much better!
I will be going again,
The only thing about our visit I would change is the music. I would have a more authentic Mediterranean music to finish off the setting.
Lovely meal at the olive grove, would definitely return.
The food was delicious and the service was good and prompt , but we felt a bit rushed at times so didn’t feel as relaxing as hoped.
Food was delicious. Cod chunks especially and the salad so fresh. Sirloin steak slices were a definite hit. Will be returning as had a fantastic evening.
Food was FANTASTIC! I highly recommend the octopus! In fact it was so good that after we finished our initial meal - despite being full - we ended up ordering another plate of octopus!
The super friendly and swift service was very impressive. The décor is really nice and just right- cosy but stylish, and the food out of this world! I am a vegan so had some vegan dishes and one was the best I have ever had! ( Courgette balls)
The Staff is very attentive and friendly, and food is served quickly. We love the place and will definitively go back again and again!
Beautiful place to sit and eat in the sunshine, food was amazing and the wine was chilled to perfection.
Food was delicious. Brilliant customer service too. We will visit again.
It is great little restaurant in the middle of the Lanes. Loved tapas, service was great!
Beautiful food, lovely surroundings, great service.
Great food, every dish was delicious, the decor is very disappointing though, which leaves the ambiance lacking.
Very nice Mediterranean ambiance with good service and excellent food.Best Koftas ever.
We had heard good reviews before arriving and were looking forward to our meal with high expectations that weren't met. Mix of different cuisines made it seem random and not authentic. Restaurant was very casual, diners in joggers for example and the deco was rough around the edges. Portion sizes seemed unfair and small for the amount I paid, and there was a lack of choice on the menu. Although the staff were friendly and there was a nice outdoor area.
The food was highly saturated in oil, including the calamari which was over-fried. We complained about this and they still added it to our bill. The plates were expensive for tapas, £12.90 for an octopus tentacle served with tired looking salad. he wine tasted cheap and was £7.50 a glass. Overall not at all impressed with the quality of the food and how expensive it was.
Overall an okay experience, won’t be going again sadly. With the prices that they are asking you don’t get as much as you would hope for, especially to share. Some dishes are a hit or miss and there is lack of selection for a Tapas restaurant.
Truly beautiful food, friendly serving staff, lovely setting in such a central position
Lovely flavours.. nice food.. nice atmosphere.. only critique is that tables would look better laid when you sit down.. thank you 😊
Delicious! Friendly staff - great selection and cocktails were lovely. Recommended.
Excellent service, great place to eat, but inside gets very noisy sadly.
Fantastic food, amazing service and an unforgettable time thank you so much for transporting us to Greece!
Lovely food and would totally recommend the chips. Reasonable prices for the amount of food you got. Waiting staff were all very friendly. We were given a table outside as I had requested. Would definitely go vack
Good food and superb ambience right in the heart of the lanes in Brighton. Shame about the staff being more interested in closing up than serving us. The bruschetta was a let down but the rest of the food was great.
Cold table in the doorway even though we had Pre booked - service was not very good - but the food was very tasty and ok value
Roasted veg turned up after main was half eaten
Portions were small and not value for money
Exceptional food and great service. It was a birthday meal for us and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Would definitely come back and recommend.
It was great for a light lunch, everything was very fresh and great quality.
The staff were very friendly and happy, they made us feel super welcome, especially the girl with dark hair, glasses and beautiful tattoos :)
