We phoned late to book and were told there were only outside tables left. Turned out to be best seats in the house, overlooking Chartwell Avenue with all the buzz and none of the chaos. Food was spectacular! Try the bacon and gorgonzola chicken breast on spring onion mash or, if you like a touch of spice, the Morrocan Chicken pasta.

This Mediterranean restaurant situated in the middle of Chartwell Drive has a family oriented, romantic yet sophisticated feel.

The service is commendable, however the food was disappointingly average. What sounded like gems on the menu turned out to be bland fests.

My dish (forgot the name) was too salty and lacked a kick of some sort. The same could be said about the other dishes on the table.

I have never had a bad meal here - the prawns are great and i Love the pasta with prawns - on a balmy night one can sit outside.

Having been to Olive and Oil many times we find the standard of service and food always very high. Nicely positioned with parking close by. The attitude of waiters is very professional as is the the quality of the food with numerous lunch specials.
