Tucked away in the centre of Northampton Town Centre is Les Olives, a restaurant which has a growing reputation for serving the best authentic tapas in Northampton. Just off the main market square in Northampton and up a small flight of stairs to the 1st floor you leave the city behind and emerge into rural Spain as warm Spanish music welcomes you. The beautiful decor, with open high timbered ceilings and exposed brick work of this old and historic building gives an airy and relaxed atmosphere.
Alex, the restaurant owner, has worked in many a fine restaurant in London and has served his dishes to celebrities including Girls Aloud and Atomic Kitten. When he took charge of the restaurant in 2008 he concentrated on creating a charming restaurant area with a friendly and welcoming environment to serve fresh and flavoursome Spanish cuisine that encapsulates the true flavours of Spain.
Look out for the specials board highlighting some of the fantastic cuisine on offer each day with such dishes as Pan-fried langoustine with garlic and basil.
