Very pleasant bistro

New owners (April 2014) Derrick & Rebecca & their family are doing everything possible to make a go of this pleasant, unpretentious, bistro which has always suffered a bit by being off the Coral Bay 'strip' and a little difficult to find. DON'T be put off (see directions below) it's well worth a visit.

It is open all day but we went for dinner last night & thoroughly enjoyed it. Derrick (a cricket fanatic with 28 years catering corps experience) does the cooking with Rebecca looking after the 'front of house'. A warm welcome always gets a place off to a good start and Rebecca (& later Derrick) both have time for a chat which we always appreciate.

The menu, whilst understandably fairly limited, changes regularly and certainly catered for most tastes. We had the warm duck salad with an oriental dressing and the mackerel pate to start. The home-made pate was particularly good. We followed this with a fillet steak with a side pepper sauce & salad and the Cod in a Prawn & cream sauce with vegetables. The cod was delicious as was the fillet steak which was ordered 'blue'. So many chefs over-cook this but not Derrick - it was perfect.

The desserts looked good so we had fresh strawberries & cream and the cold rice, blackberry & apple pot which was both unusual & really good - lovely creamy rice.

All of this plus a half carafe of Rose wine, a strong bow cider and a large bottle of water for €58 was outstanding value in my book.

Wifi is free and they do special evenings such as Fish & Chip Fridays etc. A very pleasant bistro indeed and so much better value than the offers available on the Coral Bay strip. They deserve to succeed.

Directions: From Paphos turn left into Coral Bay at the little roundabout & then turn 1st left at La Vigna restaurant. Follow the road round to the right (past the Ascos hotel) and take the last turning on the left before you reach the T junction. It says 'Private road' but ignore this - the restaurant is now on your left in the villa holiday complex.

Rarely disappoints

I have been to the Blue Olive on many occasions and have almost always been delighted with the food, atmosphere and the service. I had fresh tuna on a pineapple salsa last week which was particularly delicious. Cooked to perfection and presented well.
I will continue to eat at the Blue Olive.
It is tricky to find initially but one worth remembering.

First time and it won't be the last!

We went last week with our Daily Deal voucher and the meal was faultless.

We had the stilton and garlic mushrooms then I had the most beautiful fillet of red snapper I've had in a very long time with a coconut and red pepper sauce while Chris had a rib eye steak with a Béarnaise sauce. Both came with a huge dish of boiled new potatoes, carrots and a stir fry of veg that included red cabbage, onion and aubergine (I think!).

Unfortunately as we went in I'd walked past the sweet cabinet and simply couldn't resist a portion of malteser cheesecake served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream - oh and 2 spoons!

The service was very professional, and with 2 glasses of house white, 2 soft drinks and a bottle of water our bill was €56, so with the €40 voucher we paid the difference.

Just a note should you go that they do not take cards at all for payment, it's strictly cash only.

Toilets are easily accessible on the ground floor and the main entrance has a ramp up to it.

Can't wait to go back!

Just keeps getting better

I am always waiting to see when this restaurant finally takes off. I know it has had it's ups and downs both with owners and with staff but now they really do seem to have hit a winning combination. I have often discussed with both my wife and friends what needs to be done with this premises and they have cracked it the bistro menu is solid well cooked and nicely presented. It is now the best place for a well priced evening meal. I was also impressed to see that they now have heating in there, something which was sadly lacking last year. So my congratulations to the chef/owner Keith and my best wishes for your future long may you continue at the blue olive
