SquareMeal Review of
The Olive Tree
Occupying the basement of the Queensberry Hotel, The Olive Tree may be subterranean but this is no dark and moody bistro – the room is light and contemporary, with a smart feel. The trademark
simplicity and sunny Mediterranean flavours of the cooking have won many fans, who come here for dishes such as fillet of Brixham gurnard with curried Puy lentils, caramelised shallot and
coriander followed, perhaps, by hay-roast venison or Creedy Carver duck breast accompanied by duck leg spring roll, Alsace cabbage and potato fondant. To conclude, an assiette of clementine and
mandarin with pomegranate caviar sounds intriguing. The restaurant also boasts a superlative wine list.
