Only major issue is that on the menu they don’t specify which options are vegetarian. so when me and my partner picked the pita and hummus for a starter, we read the description and it didn’t say meat. It wasn’t till it came and we tasted one of the dips that we realised it was fish based.

Service was extremely slow. It took ages for someone to come to our table once we had sat down when we arrived. We had finished our starters by the time we got our drinks. I ordered a cocktail, when I finally got it the women on the table next to me told it was actually 2-4-1 cocktails until 7pm, so I was annoyed that the waiter hadn’t told me this. When I asked at the bar they said yes it is 2-4-1 cocktails until 7pm but I had missed the deal (it was 6.30pm at that time). The waiter was apologetic and thanked us for being patient, he was doing his best but it was really poor. We didn’t even bother ordering more drinks because we would have been leaving by the time they came. When I booked online it said the valentines set menu was still available all weekend but when we arrived we were told it wasn’t, again disappointing.

The service was extremely slow it took nearly an hour for our drinks & over an hour and a half before our starters came. The empty plates were on the table for ages after we’d finished eating, didn’t get asked if we wanted any further drinks. Then we were given the wrong menu for dessert (we were dining from the prix fix menu) didn’t bother ordering in the end as it’d taken 2 & a half hours just for the first two courses!!

Sadly the food wasn't great. My starter had been microwaved and was warm in parts and cold in others. The main was okay but having visited Greece recently the Moussaka was completely different, almost an entirely different meal. Really disappointing particularly because it was a very special occasion and the food was a let down. Service was great, as was the atmosphere.

Had a lovely evening, served well and the food was beautifully prepped, served and portion were good. You are not alone in my last comment.....Prosecco @ £30, that is really not on. I know it is the drink of the moment but I certainly will NOT buy at that price. Dave

Nice restaurant, although, being a Greek place, perhaps turn the music down a little, or perhaps Greek music would have made for a better atmosphere. Food was lovely, although, quite pricey. Service was very, very slow. People that came in long after us, were served before us, which I always find annoying when it happens. We will be back in Chester, and will probably look elsewhere to eat next time, Nothing personal of course, just my opinion. If friends ask me for recommendations, I will mention Olive Tree, but will give them the same advice as in this feedback.

To Gary Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review as we appreciate all feedback. Thank you for the nice comments about the food. I am sorry you found service too slow as we set standards that prevent this from occuring. We make all our food fresh on site and therefore some meals take longer to cook than others explaining why your food took longer than other guests to arrive.

We come to Chester (from Manchester) every year and always eat with you. Food fell just a tad short of its usual perfection this year (far too much rice, and not enough sauce, so overall felt quite dry). Otherwise spot on though and we will be back again next year.
