Excellent personal service from our waitress Charlotte. I enjoy Shiraz red wine, unfortunately the Shiraz available was poor quality at an inflated price. Although we ordered from the set menu it was not value for money. Starter was very good, main course was very disappointing. We chose the sea bass. Sorry! Not impressed with the dessert. It was a Friday evening! it wasn't particularly busy. You really need to improve the quality of food offered. Don't think I will revisit - sue Jones

I would, however, like to take this time to apologise that you felt both our food and wine were not up to our usual high standards and I will be sure to pass on this feedback to the rest of the team to look into further. We will be launching our new menus in the next couple of weeks so we hope to see you again soon to try these out. Kind regards, Madeleine

Had a great Meal at the Chester Olive tree Fantastic atmosphere, Fantastic service. Only gripe....Greek salad!. I think not. One half of a tomato and NO olives ! ! ! The rest of the food was absolutely lovely. Mmmm🙂 A little expensive.

Really disappointed last night literally nothing on the menu. It was a special Birthday visit, wish we had been informed before being seated as we would have gone elsewhere, not sure whether we will return. Such a shame as loved our last experience but it shouldn't have opened last night with so little choice.

Starters are quite small portions, we ordered a few to try so it wasn't too bad, but if ordering just one you may feel a little bit disappointed. Lamb Kleftico was delicious! Garlic flat bread needs more garlic! Good wine & relatively good service, a very young team working here.

We had such a lovely meal. The food was delicious and the service excellent. The only (tiny) issue was that we found the floor to be quite slippy - a few of us nearly went over! Everyone in our party commented that they’d love to come back with partners/families as it was a fantastic meal.

Beautiful venue and great drinks, however we waited over an hour for our food and our starter was cold when we recieved it and had to send it back and we had the lamb main which was overcooked and the sauce tasted burnt and the sea bass which was bland, we were instructed that the chef had been in an accident and left the restaurant and that's why there was such a delay, some money was deducted off our bill which was appreciated but considering how gorgeous the restaurant was and the reviews we had heard about it previously it was a shame we wernt able to experience it at it's full potential.

We visited a few weeks ago and the restaurant was immaculate and service fantastic. Saturday 28th april it was slightly disappointing and it was my birthday but never mind....There was Food underneath the table which we had to ask for it to be cleared up which they did immediately, desert ice cream was completely melted like milk again an apology was received and it was changed straight away... struggled a bit with just a fork for desert whereby it would have been easier with a spoon also but these things wouldn't put me off going back as the food is wonderful.
