    First time we've eaten at the olive house as we are not from the area but travel in occasionally for work. Both my husband and I where really impressed. The food was fantastic and the service was top notch. We will definitely eat at the olive house again when we are back in Basingstoke.

    Food was very tasty, the service was great and welcoming. We were there for a birthday and they brought out the cake and candles which was really nice. They accommodated one member of our party who was in a wheelchair. Overall really great experience.

    Nice place to eat for something different. Service was a little pushy to get to the next Course, but the food was great. Shame that you can't get draught beer rather than the bottled. Will go again in the future.

    First trip to the Olive House but won’t be my last. Menu had plenty to choose from. We weren’t disappointed with the choices made. Staff were very attentive without being overbearing. Nice atmosphere, a buzz but not too noisy. Would highly recommend.

    We visited as a birthday treat (for me!) We didn’t even have to state our names or booking - they are so aware of their bookings they even asked how the show was that we saw beforehand. We felt very welcome at ease. Neither of us had any experience of Turkish cuisine and my wife can be a little cautious if new things but - wow! The food was amazing. We started with a hot meze platter for two an then shared a mixed grill. Cannot fault the service or food - the ambience, the seating - everything was fantastic. I was aware the prices weren’t cheap but felt the overall experience was well worth it. Thank you for a great night.

    Amazing food. Lovely, lively atmosphere. Friendly and attentive staff. I’ve deducted one star for value solely on the basis on the wine - bottles starting at a minimum of £27 is rather steep.
