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.
Lovely restaurant with good value and enjolyabloe food. Staff were lovely but for some reason, on this particuular night it didn't seem very popular on Upper Streets busy drag! Could be an odd Weds night and I will try again soon.
Lovely meal with friends
Perfect service, tasty food. Amazing little restaurant in Islington area.
Fabulous menu with great options for vegetarians without being super vegan/vegetarian leaning either. So many options to choose from for a weekend brunch whether you're leaning towards a breakfast menu or more lunch. Service is great too!
Lovely service and delicious food! We will return. you are our favourite lunch spot for pre-matinee at the Almeida
Your venue and decor is lovely and I particularly liked the use of glass decanters for your lighting!! The food was good but my friends goats cheese salad was a bit sparse on the goats cheese. I asked for salad instead of mashed potato with my braised beef which they accommodated but rh saps was just a pile of leaves so I asked if they could add some other bits to make it more ‘salad like’. The was done but almost with irritation as if this was a strange request. There were other instances of poor service but more importantly an overall lack of friendliness, warmth and smiles by the male waiters. However the one female waitress Was lovely and charming - they could learn a lot from her...
Excellent food and service
It was lovely!! Food and wine were amazing, service was excellent and the desserts were a dream. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will come back! :)
The staff were great - checking that everything was ok and that we had everything that we needed. They genuinely cared that our food was good and that we were having a good time. Wow!!
The service was efficient and friendly and the food, for the price, was superb.
Great brunch food and staff were very understanding when asked to tweak some of the parts of the meal
The staff were all really lovely and we had a great time
Very friendly service and lovely food. Would definitely visit again.
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
Lovely welcoming staff, we had beautiful flowers on our table. We’ll definitely be back!
