Description: The Olive Tree in St Merryn opens for dinner from Tuesday to Saturday from 6.30pm). Our food is largely influenced by Mediterranean cuisine and, indeed, anywhere you might find olive trees growing. We focus on making the most of the wonderful fresh produce available in Cornwall, and we source our fish, meat, dairy and most of our fruit & vegetables from local producers. Reservations are recommended, and please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary requirements. Please note that the restaurant opens in March through to December - please contact us for specific dates.

Absolutely brilliant. It's a MUST visit.
The staff were amazing from booking to confirming table on day to welcome and through to service.
In husbands words "the service was impeccable".
They were friendly helpful and knowledgeable, they know their oats (or should that be fish and grapes?)
Would definitely say book a table here WHEN you book accommodation so to not be disappointed.
The food was first class, hubby said "was better than that Michelin restaurant", we've been to.
Hopefully we'll get in again on our next visit to Cornwall, as it's a must.
The added touches for our anniversary were well thought out and much appreciated.

Went with a few golfing lads.even though we were quite loud the service was excellent and the food 1st .class.Decided to take the Mrs later during the week and had a totally different selection which was equally as good.Fish was cooked to perfection and dessert was great.the boys enjoyed the wine list (I was driving) and the Mrs equally enjoyed the house wines
Coming back for more in July

We had a lovely meal here. We had booked and saw people turned away disappointed on a Tuesday night. I had hake which was delicious, my OH had steak which he really enjoyed (fussy eater as well).
Great service, very friendly, just what we had hoped for.
