A friend from over the seas took me for a quick supper and a catch up chat, and it was pleasantly enjoyable at Two Olives. We both had the espetadas, and whilst the food looked minimal, it was satisfying. The sauce over my chicken espetada...More

We have never had a bad meal at two olives! Whether a lunch date, couple, family or group of friends you cannot go wrong! Delicious tapas, pizzas, steaks, desserts!

Overcrowded, noisy and overpriced for below average food. Rump steak had a lot of sinew and was more like sirloin. Chicken was dry. Fish portions very Small and uninspiring. Sat on the deck as inside was way overcrowded and noisy.

Brilliant tapas makes it hard to choose (for a small apitite) and the wonderful service provided with smiling faces made our visit very special. Definitely worth another visit to sample more of those alluring menu items we couldn't manage on our first visit.

As always, the food was fantastic. Service is top notch, and the Trio is the best dessert in PE!!! The ONLY (tiny) problem is the acoustics. If there's a loudish table, in the restaurant, it can be difficult to hear your companions. Some Persian carpets...More
