About Fig & Olive
We offer modern European dishes with a Mediterranean influence. Our food is healthy with a wealth of aroma and delicately flavoured with a distinctive selection of herbs and spices. Our salads and cakes from buffet sections are prepared daily from the freshest ingredients.
Our restaurant is conveniently located in the heart of Upper Street Islington London and set in a long contemporary room that has been beautifully decorated in a modern style. We are able to cater for breakfast, lunch, informal buffets and full À la carte dinner menus but are always happy to discuss your dinning requirements.
We waited an extremely long time for everything- drink refills, our food, etc... and had to ask for assistance when we wanted to order, needed more to drink, wanted to order our dessert course, needed the bill, and everything else. It was especially disappointing because there were hardly any other patrons inside the restaurant. Others seemed to be experiencing the same level of service and also seemed annoyed about it. I’ve been to the restaurant multiple times, and the food is typically quite good, but due to the service we received (and having to pay for it with a service charge) means that I will not be back for a while- possibly ever again.
Great atmosphere and menu and staff were amazing. Food was great, lots to choose from too.
Overall very happy with the service and food!! Amazing dishes. It was my Husbund birthday and they brought us a dessert with a candlelight!!!! Thank you so much. Very nice staff and easy to use the tastecard. Thank you!
I was actually quite disappointed with my visit. I ordered the Avocado with toast and opted for poached eggs instead of scrambled. What arrived was quite literally just that - one slice of cheap bread, slightly over cooked, with half an avocado sliced up and put next to the bread with the eggs to the side. No effort had gone in to adding flavour to the meal at all apart from a small amount of salsa (which doesn't really work) on the side. Go to any decent brunch spot in London and you'll at least get your avocado smashed with some lime and chili on a decent piece of (usually) sourdough bread with the eggs placed on top with a little salt and pepper for added flavour. No such effort went in to this dish. Despite that, the atmosphere was lovely and very accommodating to children. The staff were kind and attentive, I cannot fault them. I did, however leave rather hungry (I'm a 50kg, 5"5 women....it doesn't take that much to satisfy my hunger) so can't give a high score on value for money either because there wasn't a lot of food on the plate! My advice would be pay attention to detail and get the basics right - there are lots of good brunch spots in Islington to compete with, and I'm not seeing any reason to go back to Fig & Olive. (My friend also ordered pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. Again, just disappointing. The pancake was dry and needed crispy bacon to add a bit more flavour rather than back bacon.)
Really good restaurant, friendly staff, breast feeding and baby friendly venue. Really good food and desserts, very pleasant experience.
We LOVE this restaurant! Food, atmosphere and the amazing staff always make for a great time. The warm and friendly staff always go the extra mile to make it special. Looking forward to our next visit.
Very friendly staff catering to our dietary needs without any hassles

Fabulous lunch. Great food and service.
Delicious- and charming staff
We were a group of 8 people and all the dishes were excellent. The staff were very professional and attentive. We will definitely go back to Fig and Olive.
Excellent food and very friendly service. One of my favourite restaurants in London.
From the manager down to the staff, everyone cares about the customers at the F and O and it makes for a pleasant experience. The food is also of high quality for the price. A great place to go and I will be going again soon.
As always the service in F&O is fab! The team are always friendly and helpful. They don’t rush you and keep touching base to see if your food is OK. My dish was a bit cold and they took my plate away immediately and heated and changed the plate giving me a fresh plate. It’s always been my go- to place as it’s consistent. It’s positive that even though they have had a few different managers working there over the years, it’s still feels familiar.
Very good food, good service, very good quality for affordable prices.
Love this restaurant, fab food wonderful staff
Loved the salmon salad!
Amazing food and service
Fig & Olive has had a facelift since I last ate there. The food is still good and service is excellent. The only downside is the fabulous array of desserts is no longer there. Better for the waistline though!
