Food was fab, great atmosphere, the place is decorated beautifully and very quirky. Almost feels like your abroad if only a little warmer. staff were brilliant and we were looked after so well and it’s so nice to find a place that actually has good...service still. A bonus was the Bob Marley tribute after down stairs to finish the evening off. Thank you very much.More

A friends special birthday. Booked in advance. They promise balloons and to make it ‘special’. No balloons, not feeling special, expensive for what it is. Prob won’t return. Tapas fresher , tastier and cheaper at CorkersMore

Love Les Olives, best tapas place in town. Great for special occasions and very friendly staff. Never had a bad meal here, somewhere that never let's us down

Went here with 2 friends as a reunion. The food was great, I would highly recommend the Pork. We had 3 dishes each, bread and a bottle of wine to share; it came to around £30 each. The staff were probably the best I have...experience in a restaurant, both attentive and friendly(without being awkward). On a side note I walked past the restaurant everyday whilst at university and thought it was empty, however the seating is upstairs and the decor was greatMore

Perfect once again, favourite place to eat in Northampton. From the moment you arrive you are treated well by very attentive staff. Food is divine really great tapas choice with a wide choice of menu including lots of vegetarian options. Can’t recommend enough.

We went for a midweek lunch and having not been in a while it was still as good as we remembered. The decor makes you feel you are in Spain not in Northampton. We had broad beans with bread which was tasty and the bread...was fresh and plentiful. Then we had swordfish, mussells, sweet potato, mushrooms and spinach with feta cheese. All were yummy. The staff were attentive. Great place to try new flavoursMore

I attended Les Olives for a works Xmas event. On entry the place looks very small, but the downstairs bar has a great range of drinks and a small meeting area/dancefloor to the rear. The main restaurant is upstairs. We were in the smaller side...room, but the decor is pleasant and well kept. The food here is FANTASTIC! Of particular note is the Pork Belly and the Sweet Potato. Wonderful food, attentive staff and a great evening!More

This has to be the best Tapas outside of Spain. We have tried many Tapas restaurants but I believe this is the first to offer an authentic and diverse range of genuine Tapas. A very nice venue with tentative and friendly staff. Close to the...town centre but far enough from the hustle and bustle. It’s a perfect place for romantic couples and groups (large or small). The vegetarian options were also varied and in abundant. This place really does suit all. I loved it.More
