We have been to this place before from a client's recommendation and to set out to disprove or otherwise a previous negative review and was quite impressed. The manager even got a young waiter to look after our car parked on a meter zone with only 15 minutes left but uncontactable by mobile! (typical of Barnet council) this time we... More

Exceptionally good fish restaurant. I went there with a friend just before Christmas, and thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. We started with the mixed meze, which were the best I have tasted. Then we had the cod and chips... My home is in Whitby, and therefore I know fish and chips. The fish could not have been more fresh if it... More

The Staff in this restaurant were so kind. The food was absolutely brilliant. I chose the cod in batter and it tasted the best I have ever had. It's not just the food that was great but the layout of the restaurant with a blue ocean theme and classical music playing at the back was just so calm and relaxing.... More

Portions are a great size . We had battered haddock and salmon which were both tasty pieces of fish. They failed on the batter , it was greasy and no crunch ... What's the point in the batter ? The chips were awful ....undercooked stale and dry ... It's a shame because this is my first time here and I... More

My Foodie Group returned today to Olympus for lunch. The lunchtime menu is £7.95, which included salad as a starter, followed by either grilled salmon trout or cod, fried either in Matzo meal or batter, with chips. This was followed by creme caramel, rice pudding or ice cream, tea or coffee. Everything was freshly cooked and very well received by... More

Ambient, decor, wine list don't get any more basic than this.. But the fish is really good!! My wife had fish and chips, I had coal cooked salmon (their specialty according to the waiter). Both were excellent, with very large servings

Although not from the area we make a point of visiting whenever we are in the vicinity and are never disappointed. Generous portions of Haddock and Chips,tasty and moist more than lived up to expectations. Service lacked a little finesse but was friendly and welcoming. Well worth driving a few miles for a return visit as soon as possible.
