Olive & Vine has been serving the leafy Manchester suburb of Didsbury, in one form or another, from its Wilmslow Road premises since the 1970s, where current proprietor Dimitris began work as a barman. Forming a more than healthy attachment to the site led Dimitris to take the reins himself, and in 2011 he cut the ribbon on the revamped Olive & Vine restaurant, where he now shares his passion for Mediterranean cuisine with a growing legion of loyal (and not any longer just local) followers.
Olive & Vine spans the length and breadth of the Mediterranean, offering up a peerless selection of tapas, meze, kebabs, special house dishes, desserts and drinks to Didsbury and diners who come to this Wilmslow Road restaurant from throughout the wider Manchester area. Fantastic food and drink deals are regularly chalked up here, and there’s even a great Sunday menu that blends the British tradition of the Sunday roast with equivalents poached from Greek and Middle Eastern cuisines. The Greek rosto, for example, consists of lamb on the bone cooked in red wine and tomato with Mediterranean herbs, something best rounded off with some sweet and delicate baklava. Plus, kids eat for free!
Olive & Vines exquisite tapas menu takes its cues from Lebanese, Greek, Italian, Turkish and, naturally, Spanish culinary traditions, making this menu a great way to explore Mediterranean food with friends and family. Even more ambitious are the meze platters on offer at this Didsbury, Manchester Mediterranean restaurant, with the ability to pick a platter or create your own from the options available. Middle Eastern kebabs are another great option, a great accompaniment to the huge range of imported wine and beer available from the bar. If you too become a fan of Olive & Vine, consider taking your next celebration to their Wilmslow Road restaurant – for a fixed price per head, Dimitris will help curate a feast you won’t quickly forget.
Me and my partner ate here for our anniversary. It has become a regular dining option for us as we love the menu. My favorite to order is the olive & vine chicken and the spinach and garlic potatoes!
It was a fantastic experience dining at Olive and Vine for New Year's Eve. It's great that the normal menu was still on offer as I find that it puts me off when restaurants have a very limited menu for New Year. Love the Meze!
It's always a pleasure at olive and vine, service is so quick and the menu is delicious! It's a great location close to didsbury village also!
Excellent food with service to match, would highly recommend to others. We had a selection of tapas to start with 5 Mezes to follow. The Melantzana/Baba Ganoush dips and Tyropita/Paella Mezes were particular favourites.
The food at Olive & Vine was fantastic. We ordered a selection of 8 meze dishes for £40, which was plenty for two people, and they were all delicious. Live music being played made for a very nice atmosphere. I haven't rated 6/6 because our order was lost by their ordering system or the kitchen, meaning we waited ~50 minutes for our food while other tables who arrived later than we did ate before us. These things happen though - our waiter was very apologetic and knocked some money off the bill for us. Overall, the delay wouldn't stop be going back to a friendly restaurant with fantastic food!
Booked a special deal - Tapas £2, Meze £4.50 plus special price on drinks but after meal discovered that using a Tastecard instead (50% off food) worked out slightly cheaper. There were other deals on offer too. All the tapas and meze were delicious, staff attentive and service great. I can also recommend Pan Catalan. Looking forward to eating there again but would always go for a deal to keep costs down. Note, live music on Sunday night (hence marked 'noisy') - mellow with saxophone but too intrusive for us to want to sit near so we chose to sit as far away as possible which helped. Would probably not be a problem on a non-music night.
It was my first visit to Olive and Vine. On entering we were warmly greeted by the staff. The restaurant is much bigger inside than it's outward appearance. Our waiter was always close by if we needed any help with the menu. We had starter and main and the wait between courses was just right. The food was very good and there was a large variety to choose from. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed and there was a guitarist/singer that was very good. I will definitely be coming back and highly recommending Olive and Vine to my friends.
Brought my friends here as I had previously visited and really enjoyed it. My friends were impressed and glad that I had recommended it. We all had a fantastic evening. Nice to chat and hear the singer in the background. The staff were attentive as always. We were the last to leave and I think we stayed a little to long !!! Sorry to the staff that were waiting for us to leave, oops. We were just having such a wonderful evening. This restaurant has been added to our list of ones to visit regularly. Thank you.
We saw the Olive & Vine on our walk around the park near it, we saw the food which look lovely, so we booked a table. On arriving, we were greeted with a friendly staff member. The food was great, plus the service was great
First time dining at this restaurant following reading some good reviews. Was not disappointed. Lovely setting. Very polite and attentive waiters without being too pushy. Good selection on menu with nice additional specials menu to choose from. Within my party we choice baked sea bass, lobster linguine and chicken/lamb kebab. Well presented and delicious. Could not fault the food or the restaurant. The added plus is that for a didsbury restaurant the price was not too bad at all. Would definitely recommend and will be revisiting in the near future.
