Love this place nestled in the upstairs of an old limestone building. So much character in the restaurant and staff are always so attentive and full of life. Best tapas in Northampton.

Les Olives is a fabulous tapas restaurant in Northampton. Food and service are both top notch. Try the spinach empanadas and hazelnut liqueur!
