    Fantastic quality, best swordfish I have ever tasted outside of Greece. Food was fresh, well presented, and tasted delish. The service was quick, yet it was nearly full and it was all served with a smile. I am looking forward to returning soon.

    Excellent two-course meal on "The offers" meal excellent value, loved the food. Good portions.

    This eating place is fast becoming a North Leeds favourite. It's not hard to see why - everything about it, is first class. There are several Mediterranean restaurants in Leeds - but none as good as The Olive in Chapel Allerton!

    This is our favourite restaurant. The food is always good, the service superb and friendly and I only gave the ambience a lower rating because there were very few diners last night. However, the staff made up for this with their friendliness. Love it!

    Absolutely fabulous food, with a dedication to customer care that is unequaled.

    Our favorite restaurant ever. We are regular and we love the food here. Thank you.

    Lovely meal, very impressed with the food and the service was great.

    Excellent meal, enjoyed by all 10 of us. Excellent service! I will definitely be going back again in 2020.

    A trendy Mediterranean restaurant with a big heart and big portions! Lovely careful staff attending to every requirement. Delicious food and very fair prices. Will become a "regular" from now on!

    Well presented, delicious food. FAST SERVICE.

    We ate the Calamari and mixed dips for starters and then had lamb chops and mixed souvlaki for mains (sadly no room for dessert). All of this was fantastic, beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. I actually managed to resist the lovely sauté potatoes and chose rice with vermicelli- fantastic!

    The food was amazing, the staff were very attentive and the surroundings were great. I don't understand why this place isn't packed out. I will definitely be going again!

    Great evening and good food and service.

    Good service and good food.

    Excellent - beautifully cooked, generous portions, friendly service - will definitely return.

    Fantastic as always, lovely service and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

    The food here was absolutely freshly cooked and presented husband said it was the best sea bass he had ever had in a restaurant...will definitely go back...this is my new go to restaurant where I know I will get great food at a reasonable price.
