    The food was great, I had prawn croquettes and cecina beef followed by seared tuna steak- all fresh and yummy, bursting with flavours. The wine list is insane! I would definitely go back for it. The place is so well located too.

    Dear Anonymous, Thanks a prawn-star review! We're thrilled you enjoyed our prawn croquettes, cecina beef, and seared tuna steak. Our wine list is "grape-ly" appreciated, and we're glad it made an impression! With our prime location, we aim to be the "steak" of the town. Can't wait to welcome you back for another round of deliciousness! 🍤🍷🥩 Olea Social Team

    Excellent ambience, service very good. We waited a bit too long between starts and main course. My friend has a severe allergy and the staff were very helpful and addressed the issue to the kitchen. It was our birthday my that was not acknowledged at all. I don’t understand why asking if it is a special occasion and don’t do anything. Overall pleasant experience. Thanks

    Was really quiet on a Saturday night, not much atmosphere at all. Food was good but felt a bit expensive for what we got

    The food was fantastic, with every dish made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The flavors were authentic and vibrant, truly capturing the essence of Mediterranean cuisine. I had moussaka for the main, we shared chargrilled cauliflower, humus and calamari, my partner enjoyed dry-aged rib eye with pardon peppers. For the wine we opted for Chateau Ixsir form Lebanon. The service was top-notch, with friendly and attentive staff who made sure our dining experience was perfect from start to finish. One of the highlights was the terrace with a stunning sunset view. It provided a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere, making our evening even more special. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking to enjoy great food, excellent service, and a picturesque setting in the heart of Covent Garden!
