Lovely food, friendly and helpful, if a little over enthusiastic, staff. Only downside is if you are unlucky enough to be dining when a large, energetic group is in then the noise is unpleasant.
It didn't ruin our visit but it was the reason we ate at pace and left early.

We enjoyed our first visit. The halibut was a bit over cooked but it still remains my favourite fish !
We will return for a less-in-a-hurry [theatre] visit

Clearly your section below comes from over the water, I.e. some spelling. What is paleo?

Lovely first time here, they have a great menu for everyone. We had the vegetarian options and they were amazing. Great atmosphere and lovely food. Staff were brilliant too.

Disappointed with meal, service was slow even though there were hardly any diners. Food was mediocre considering the price. Left early and didn't have desert.

We dined early at 7pm in a slowly filling restaurant. The food was good. The soup was excellent, and the red mullet was spectacularly good, with many flavours on the plate; a thoroughly enjoyable dish.
The talented guitarist / singer was sensitive to the atmosphere and played a well-judged selection of songs - a real plus.

It was a special occasion for us (40th Wedding Anniversary) and we were glad we chose the Stuffed Olive.

Friendly, efficient service albeit kn a quiet Friday night. Menu is noticeably varied for those who don’t eat red meat. Food was very tasty and well presented. The stuffed aubergine dish was a particular hit and the sea bass main also delicious. Wines varied and well priced with enough by-the-glass options. Dessert menu particularly unambitious - I’m normally a dessert fiend and couldn’t find anything tempting.
Managed to leave my debit card at the restaurant - received a call within minutes of leaving and rushed back to find a staff member waiting for me at the door. Great service!

Having booked table by window and called to confirm this, was disappointed not to be given table by window. Ordered wine only to be told that particular wine wasn’t available. After choosing another wine, we were told that 2 out of 3 starters we had chosen were not available either as they had run out at 7.30pm in the evening!! Called for manager who didn’t apologise - just rambled on making excuses. What food we had was lovely - just the attention to service could have been better. It was a special occasion and felt let down in many areas.

This is my 3rd(and not my last) visit to the Stuffed Olive. As always the food was perfection, amazing service and such a lovely setting with great atmosphere. Guitarist on a Saturday night just sets the tone perfectly. Will be back soon

The vegetarian option was good (hearty and tasty), though maybe a bit overpriced. Very quiet at lunchtime with very few diners, so the ambience was non existent. Service pleasant. A good place to go for a quiet lunch away from crowds.

The food was amazing.
However the portion weren't the best when you pay a fair amount for each mains.
We also wanted our wine with both starter and mains and it finally came out with the mains after asking twice.
The atmosphere was lovely, but the live guitar music was a little bit to loud at points.

My favourite restaurant in Northampton. The food is always good here. The service was excellent. I struggle to pick something from each course on the menu as I’d love it all!
It’s also one of the few places that still has Muscadet, which we really enjoy, on their wine list

Some of the food was cold and a bit underwhelming. The restaurant was empty so didn’t have a good atmosphere.

Very disappointed. Having eaten there before I was looking forward to returning with my husband but after dinner Friday night I wouldn’t go back again . Starters were pretentious (4 prawns at roughly £2.50 a prawn !) don’t mind paying for good food but all I could taste was the chilli oil ! My husband ordered the lamb which he enjoyed however I had to send my fillet bs k as it was over cooked , the waiter told me the chef said the lights in the restaurant might make it look that way !!! The re-fire was cold and quality of both steaks were poor . We left quickly and quietly .

We took my mum for lunch on Sunday - the food was lovely and we enjoyed the complimentary glass of prosecco. Sadly, the restaurant was almost empty.

Having never been to the Stuffed Olive before, but having heard great things, we had high expectations of our visit.....and we weren’t disappointed. We were met with a smile and escorted to our table.

The food was amazing and was washed down with a lovely wine (chosen from an extensive list). There was no one rushing us through, and it felt like we had all the time we wanted at our table.

Overall a fab night at a great restaurant.

Would have been a really nice dinner, but the service e staff were not up to the same standard of the food (which was delish so well done kitchen).
1. Didn't serve for c.10mins, I had to ask
2. There was two of us for dinner, we ordered drinkd and I was about to ask for mine and the waitress wandered off😂 very odd.
3. Ordered olives, but they forgot to bring them

Food wise, very nice!!!
