Really nice food, portions a little small, and the meatballs were late. However the staff were quick to sort the issue and provided excellent customer service! Will definitely be returning!

Les Olives is going from strength to strength. The completed upstairs renovation has resulted in more space, more seating and attractive lighting. The menu is varied with extensive vegetarian options. The food is delicious. Staff are welcoming and like to know if it is a special celebration, with offers of complimentary deserts (eg chocolate mousse to die for) or liqueurs.... More

Last night saw my second visit here and I was not disappointed. My first visit we were a small hen party and we were sat upstairs in a quiet, initimate room, which was lovely. I had no idea there was a different floor with a buzzing atmosphere and spanish guitarists playing. So really glad we discovered the main restaurant floor... More

This place is brilliant, the food is amazing, waitress very friendly. What more can you ask for! Visited at lunch time and was able to take advantage of the lunch deal. For every 2 dishes you buy you get the 3rd free. Top offer! The food was incredible, superb flavours and very good portion sizes. I especially enjoyed the sea... More

What a wonderful restaurant and 'Tapas Experience'. The food was fab, the ambience awesome, and then we had the most attentive and engaging service from Fabrizia whilst being entertained by Tomas Jimenez - Flamenco Guitarist. What an amazing night! Thank you!

On Saturday, my wife and I returned to Les Olives for the fourth time this year. The journey requires a £20 taxi ride, then a train journey, and then a 15 minute walk. If we lived in Northampton, I think we'd be eating there every other week. We seek out Tapas bars wherever in the word we roam, and Les... More

So I was lucky enough to be invited to the private party re-furb party here tonight. Wow it is beautiful- the upstairs restaurant has had a major overhaul and it is simply stunning. The same gorgeous menu and attentive staff but the refurbished is even more authentic Spanish vibe. Alex and Emir have worked so hard to complete an already... More

Excellent food, generous portions, always so tasty! Catered for our large party brilliantly, with a the sangria flowing nicely. One of my favourite restaurants in town.
