4 of us spent a fantastic evening in the Olive Grove. I've been for a work lunch a few years ago and was uncertain this was the same place. The revamps confused me! BUT the food...oh, the food! We had a shared starters, a main course, a dessert, coffees and a licquer. I can't list anything as each of us loved what we had including the vegatarian choices! The service was unbelievably good - never asking for another drink. Our waitress asked and we were so happy we carried on! The meal was not cheap (I remember the Petty Cury Greek upstairs restaurant with moussaka swimming in fat back in the 1970s!) but you really need to taste the food! It was worth every penny as were the drinks.
Stop reading this and head over there now. You will love it! Oh and the menu described the dishes beautifully in English!

I visited with friends and had a lovely meal.

The food was excellent, I had the mixed grill which was delicious.

Service was very good and the price was surprisingly good too.

Would thoroughly recommend a visit.

We went to this amazing Greek restaurant known as a family business, near the Center, perfect location to recovery after a day in Cambridge. When we arrive to the restaurant we being approach for a waiter that took us to our table, nice venue, friendly staff. Our waiter Carlos recommend us a Kleftico “lamb shank” which he explain to us in a way we decide to try, not just that but the mix grill... just amazing combinations of flavours and authentic Greece experience.
I will recommend to book a table as they are busy during a weeked times.
