Visited the Fat Olive on many occasions for family birthdays etc. The menu is varied, the food of a good quality and the staff attentive and friendly. Just booked for a farewell for our son who is travelling, it is the best choice of any restaurant in Wigan.

We arrived at the restaurant and was given a warm welcome, once we had ordered drinks we were shown to our table. We ordered different meals, the food was fabulous, the service was first class and the staff and owner made our evening special. We will return in the new year.
