The Olive Tree Bistro New Brighton
Lovely little bistro with great service and excellent food.
Great food and lovely service
Very enjoyable evening. Staff very attentive. Food was plentiful but the lamb shoulder was too much for me to eat. Overall a good experience.
Firstly, we booked our meal at the Olive Tree Bistro on-line and were asked if we were coming for any special occasion. We added that we were booking to celebrate our 5th Wedding anniversary. But when we arrived there was no mention of it at all. Not a problem but why ask in the first place? My wife had her hopes built up to expect some congratulation mentioned and was disappointed when there was none.
Secondly, the food we ordered was rump steak, cooked medium and seared duck breast, cooked pink. Both were overdone and were not as we had experienced the last time we had visited the Olive Tree Bistro about a year ago, when the food was outstanding. This was more like nice 'pub grub' and not at all the experience we had expected.
Food always consistent and atmosphere in the restaurant is really good. Have been many times and has never failed to please.
Indifferent food - fish & chips - very heavy batter.
Waitresses could do with a little more knowledge of the food ingredients and the types of wine on the list
As before, we enjoyed tasty food at reasonable prices with really friendly service. I particularly liked the ice cream selection - the blackcurrant and liquorice flavour is lovely!
This is the second time I have eaten here and I will definitely be back! My husband and I went for a pre theater meal before going to the Floral to see a show. Food was so lovely, staff really nice; all in all a lovely little bistro place that we will be frequenting more.
Definitely the best place to eat in New Brighton! Highly recommend.
Great food will definatly be back lovely service and nice surroundings
Excellent restaurant, likewise food, customer service & ambience excellent. Highly recommend to all & will definetely return whenever in the locality.
Beautiful little restaurant which I have visited many times. Excellent food and service!
Always excellent, home cooked food, good value and nice, friendly atmosphere
First time at the olive tree but would definitely be back. Lovely friendly service and the food was perfect.
Wonderful went for a special birthday with friends and we all enjoyed it thoroughly
After trying to spend time with old colleagues as we were drinking the water staff at 9:10pm informed us that they would be closing at 9:30pm. Poor end to a lovely night with friends.
Quality food, fantastic service & great value
I would highly recommend
Went for a first date, nice atmosphere, cosy, fantastic food and the staff were lovely. Would definitely go again, lovely little resteraunt, 5 stars
Top quality food from a varied menu catering to all tastes and dietary needs. Has a nice vibe to the place, pretty chilled with a great friendly service. Will be back, give it a try.
Nice food,good ambiance, very convenient for the theatre and good value
Visited the Olive Tree Bistro on Sunday night with my girlfriend and was not disappointed in any way. Everything from booking the venue, the warm and friendly greeting on arrival, the fantastic freshly prepared food, the personal service from the staff, the value for money, everything was first class. We ordered the Sunday chicken roast and the homemade scouse and both were cooked perfectly and tasted absolutely delicious. For dessert we chose Bakewell tart and apple crumble and again, both were presented really well and tasted superb, with piping hot custard (as it should be!). The venue is perfect for couples or smallish groups (6-8 perhaps) and offers a very personal and romantic setting. There is also adequate parking very close to the bistro. Having been for the first time on Sunday, I can say with some certainty that we will be visiting it again soon!
Wonderful little restaurant delicious beautifully presented food and great service a real gem.
We took a friend here for a birthday treat before going to the Floral hall theatre which is just a few minutes walk away. We had the pre-theatre menu which was good value at £15.99 for two courses. Staff were friendly and efficient, food was good and there was a nice relaxed atmosphere. We would definitely go there again.
As usual brilliant food and service. Friendly, tasty. Superb.
The service was brilliant, the staff were all very friendly and accommodating.
The food tasted amazing, definitely be going again.
Thank you for a great evening.
A very nice meal was had prior to a show at Floral Hall. The service was second to none, very attentive without being intrusive. Will definitely be booking again on our next venture across the water.
Had a lovely pre-theatre dinner at The Olive Tree, couldn't fault anything, food, service everything was spot on.
This is the fourth time I have eaten at the Olive Tree ( usually pre theatre dinner). A fairly extensive menu with good quality food. My friend and I both opted for the mixed berry cheesecake.....in a word .....DIVINE!!
Had the pre-theatre menu which was very good, served by by nice friendly staff and the house wine was also very good value.
Disappointed is probably our opinion.
The mackerl pate was delicious, but two small pieces of dry bread, no butter and poor garnish let it down drastically.
Pizza was very nice.
Would say that hygiene was not high on the agenda. Plates not really clean.
Service was ok, bit slow.
Liked the music.
Visited on August 18th before the theatre.
Food gorgeous. 3 courses all to die for.
Staff lovely. Attentive without being overbearing.
Enjoyable food, good value and ambience. Would recommend a visit.
Being gluten free it is quite hard to find restaurants that are really amenable to your requirements. The menus tend to lack thought and very few items are in fact GF however The Olive Tree really push the boat out, not just for Coeliac's but all types of foodies. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be going again real soon, thank you for a fantastic meal etc.
lovely meal with friend. tasty menu . home cooked , so had a bit of a wait
Excellent food & good service as always. Superfood salad starter was exceptional.
I’ve eaten here a few times before, always, as on this occasion, pre-theatre. The food is invariably good & the service pleasant & friendly. My only complaint this time was that my starter, garlic mushroom on ciabatta, was spoiled because the sauce was poured over the ciabatta, rendering the bread into a mush, instead of the crispness it should have. The waiters did not ask if the meals were alright. If I hadn’t been in a rush to leave for the performance (bad timing on my part), I would have commented at the time.
Nevertheless I will come again. It is an ideal venue for anyone going to the Floral Pavilion.
We visited the olive tree with our friends over from Australia. The cuisine in oz is fantastic so we wanted to make sure we had good food. The meals were delicious freshly made and well received. The bistro was busy with a great atmosphere. The view of the surrounding trees outside through the windows with the indoor twinkly lighting made our friends think they were somewhere in France where they had just visited. Excellent staff and experience thanks jayne and staff!
Excellent evening.Food and service was excellent.I would recommend this restaurant for all types of visits(pre theatre,birthday and relaxing evening meal.Wish I lived closer
Great food and service....friendly and nothing too much trouble. We went for pre theatre dinner and they even put on music by the artist we were seeing.....great touch!!! Have eaten there before and will definitely go again...
