Great food. I am very critical of Greek restaurants as I am from a Cypriot family. The Blue Olive clearly caters for Greeks/Cypriots who like to eat food that reminds them of their grandmother/mothers/aunts' kitchens. Worth every penny.

Disappointing meal. Kalamari rings were not seasoned and very bland. Pitta bread with tzaziki tasted a bit stale and salad had too much vinegar. The main courses were average and not good value. This is a friendly restaurant, it was very busy and has a...More
