Not nearly as good as rated, service was good but food was what you would expect from any cheap restaurant and certainly not worth their prices(not worth the money!)

What a wonderful place to eat, the food was fresh, tasty, service wonderful, clean, and acomodating. It wasn't especially Mediteranian as was advertised, which was a nice surprise. The seafood was really tasty.

The Olive Garden restaurant is situated right on Obans busy Railway pier, the transport hub of the town. At the heart of The Olive Garden is the kitchen, which is exactly as we think it should be. With an open hatch allowing guests to watch our team of chefs in action, you can see the passion and care which goes into each and every plate as your food is lovingly hand prepared and cooked fresh in front of you using only the finest locally sourced and authentically imported ingredients.We offer a wide selection of Italian and Mediterranean dishes in a relaxing, comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. Able to cater for anything from a romantic dinner for two in a cosy corner to parties of up to 100, The Olive Garden is the ideal venue for any occasion. Children are more than welcome, and we are able to offer half portions and gluten free options on request.We look forward to welcoming you soon!
