The food was nice but we were upset that they had removed the patatas bravas from the menu. It's a big favourite.
Great! Staff lovely and helpful, food and Greek wine really good. They had an issue with supplies but right now that’s to be expected.
The restaurant is right in the middle of The Lanes, Brighton. But you could think you were actually in Greece. Eith the courtyard and the inside of the restaurant. Friendly staff and amazing tapas. It reminded me of my last holiday in Greece over ten years ago. Worth a visit for lovers of tapas and a family friendly restaurant. The deserts were amazing as well.
Amazing. Food was fab!!
The best food I’ve had in Brighton, and to be honest… one of the best Greek restaurants I’ve been to ever. The baklava was the softest, and all of the dishes were stunningly good. A chilled family med aesthetic, and a wonderful bunch of staff. We will be coming back :)
Smaller dishes and not a wide selection, resulting in slightly higher bills but the food quality is good. Excellent service and ambience.
Eating here on a sunny afternoon in the shade of an Olive tree is the next best thing to being in Greece!
The choice of food is interesting and varied and very tasty. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive which is unusual for Brighton.
It's quiet location, tucked away in a courtyard, means you're free from traffic and shoppers.
I can't wait to return.
Seated immediately and drinks brought without delay
Server very helpful in her suggestions
Frequently checked we had everything we needed and that food was satisfactory
Food very nicely presented and tasty
Really good food..highly recommended if you go to Brighton..
My daughter and I enjoyed great food in ‘different’ surroundings with friendly service. We would definitely eat there again when in Brighton
Courtyard is in a great position, tucked away from the busy streets. Food was delicious and swiftly served.
Food, service and cocktails were great!
Really tasty small plates, friendly and attentive staff
Excellent food, lovely waitress, overall a nice experience
Ate in the courtyard. Every dish was tasty and cooked well. The prawns, the lamb kofte and the croquetas were my favourites.
It was 8pm so most things on the menu were sold out (including bread) so we kind of had to order things we didn’t really want cos we had no choice. Then the food came and it was just really bland and felt microwaved. Was a shame because came here a year ago and the food was fantastic and was a different menu. The service was great though were all very polite even though it was super busy. Definitely would say it’s overpriced for what you get.
Rererally enjoyed the food that was available but too many dishes that were not. Could also maybe offer more for children. Will be back though!
We visited for a family birthday meal and would not have changed a thing. The food was incredible, and there were so many plant based options for the two vegetarians as well as plenty of seafood and meat options. The staff were attentive, friendly, welcoming and helpful. We had a table outside and the atmosphere was wonderful. We were so grateful to all the team for everything, especially on such a hot and busy day.
Freaking love this place. Lovely staff. Food is delicious. Atmosphere is fantastic.
Just my favourite place. The food is amazing and the atmosphere cannot be beaten, it feels like you’re in Greece. 100% would recommend and would like to say a huge thank you to the staff last night who made our evening truly beautiful! Big love.
We have eaten at the Olive Grove several times, and each time is as good as the previous. The staff are all very knowledgeable about the food and drink that they serve , and you never feel rushed
Excellent food and service in a relaxed atmosphere, will book again on another trip.
Amazing service with outstanding food!
its a great place to sit outside in the nice weather and the food is always tasty. The staff were efficient and friendly.
Love this restaurant. Only thing is portion sizes can be inconsistent.
Nice food, helpful waitress, pleasant atmosphere.
Good selection on the menu and well cooked. Friendly staff.
Loved the food - everything looked and tasted delicious. Restaurant was very busy with family groups and hence noisy, which drowned out the music.
Very good service waitress and waiter were very attentive, food was served fast and was delicious. Would definitely recommend.
Amazing food and quality cocktails - lovely to sit outside and enjoy the ambience
