My mother, sister and I dined at Ollie's restaurant today to celebrate my sister's birthday. We had eaten at the restaurant before, but not visited on a Sunday and wanted to try the Sunday Roasts.
On arrival, we were taken to our table and ordered...drinks - a glass of house white, a soft drink and a gin & tonic made with 'Ollie's own gin'. We had the choice of a selection of roast dinners (pork, beef chicken, nut roast) or the steak menu.
We all chose roast beef and were not disappointed. The meat was delicious, beautifully cooked and plentiful. We were given two substantial bowls of freshly cooked vegetables between us (and could not eat it all). The homemade yorkshire pudding was huge and, again, beautifully cooked.
Although we could not finish our main courses, we still had our 'pudding space', so ordered two sticky toffee puddings and an affogado. My sister and I were torn between the sticky toffee pudding and the vanilla and chocolate baked alaska. We opted for the (gorgeous) sticky toffee pudding on the basis that we'd just have to return to try the baked alaska!
The service was friendly, welcoming and attentive. We will definitely be back. Ollie's is definitely one of (if not the) best restaurant currently in Torbay.More
