Owner's description

Tom Goldie has a love for simple fresh food, cooked in a traditional way and using authentic methods with a modern twist. Enjoy hearty winter fare such as slow roasted lamb shanks braised in red wine and rosemary or the speciality crumbed pork chops with a tangy honey and mustard sauce. The menu is prepared daily according to seasonal availability. The starters include aged brie wrapped in phyllo served with fig preserve, prawn tempura, Falkland calamari with chouricco and sundried tomato and delicious creamy snails. Decadent desserts celebrate chocolate with bar one sauce and ice-cream, delectable brownies, traditional bread and butter pudding with custard and Portuguese style crème caramel.

    Sadly the service and food quality did not match up to the beautiful surroundings. Over a 30 min wait to be acknowledged once seated despite numerous attempts to request menus, a very disappointing 1.5hr wait for our food, absolutely non existent service, nor any attention to the table nor any feedback regarding delays and to top it all off, incorrect billing. A very disappointing and frustrating experience.
    Very bad service from untrained waiters.. no cutlery, no olive oil nor balsamic for salad, waiter forgot to place order for kiddies meal, homemade tzatziki and humus aweful and inedible, management inexperienced. 19.11.2018
    Great service and relaxing setting. Lovely activities for kids on adjoining property. Food portions are big and ?
    I give this restaurant 100% Food good quality, delicious and well presented. The vibe is awesome. The area is relaxing.
    We booked Sunday lunch at the Fat Olive yesterday. We arrived promptly at 1 pm, placed our orders shortly thereafter, including orders for my 18 month old son and 5 year old daughter. By 2 pm we still had not received our food. We asked the waiter to find out why order was taking so long and if we could at least have the children's food as soon as possible. He returned to say that the chef has decided that all the food will come out of the kitchen at the same time!! I've never experienced this in a 'child-friendly' restaurant before. Restaurants usually try and get the kids meals out as soon as possible. But not here. By 2.15pm, still no food. The waiter comes back to say that the kitchen is very busy and the chef cannot tell us how much longer the food is going to be. After waiting another 15 minutes with still no food (a total of almost 1.5 hours after placing our orders) and sporadic sightings of the waiter, we decided to leave and eat elsewhere. My husband requested the bill and to see the manager. The manager's attitude was unbelievable. It was almost as if he felt that we should be grateful to be there. When my husband said to him that we didn't even receive an apology for the long wait and the poor service, his response was "and who exactly would you like an apology from?". An absolute joke.
