Olive and Oil

Where good people
and good food meet

Whatever the occasion when dining with us, we aim to inspire you with Mediterranean flavours that will keep you coming back for more!

A burst of modern
Mediterranean flavours

The ancient Greeks and Romans held olives in such high esteem that they decided they could only have been created by the Gods. Olive Oil came to symbolise life and friendship and was considered as the Mediterranean’s Liquid Gold. Here at Olive & Oil we continue to honour this symbolism throughout all our restaurants incorporating these beliefs into everything they do.

Our exciting approach to modern Mediterranean cuisine is combined with our love for friendship, family, and people and our belief in sourcing only the highest quality ingredients. Allowing us to create meals bursting with flavour – always staying true to the Olive & Oil experience.
