No Products in the Bag
On April Fool's Day in 2013, we flung open our doors to the good people of Cambridge, fresh from the turquoise blue waters of Elafonisos, Laconia, and the family ventures of Capari Suites, the Kouzini Restaurant, and the Canal Bar. Since 1936, we've been aspiring to excellent hospitality, which is a fancy way of saying we're committed to making you feel like you're part of our family.
Our namesake grandfather started his pub in Elafonisos, Laconia, in the olden days when Greek village pubs were essentially community centres that would cook whatever the patrons brought in, and only charge for the wine or beer that was ordered with the food. That's right, folks - BYOM (bring your own meat).
To Kouzini (a.k.a. The Little Kitchen) still stands tall and proud in the exact same historical building at the promenade of Elafonisos harbor, from where we continue to serve up Greek and Mediterranean specialties that will knock your socks off.
On September 26th, 2022, we opened our second location in the UK in the beautiful town of Bury St Edmunds. We're not saying that it was a better choice than opening a branch in the Bahamas, but it was definitely more convenient.
At The Olive Grove, we're all about keeping it Classic. Simple. Great.
Just like our sense of humor. That's why we launched our online food portal on April 10th, 2020, to bring your favorite Greek food to your table at home, where you can eat in your sweatpants and nobody will judge you.
We've won some awards, like:
Best Mediterranean Restaurant 2019 England (Overall), Best Greek Restaurant 2016 England (South),
Restaurant of the Year at the England and Wales Food Awards in 2014 & 2015.
Best Restaurant in Cambridge in 2017 & 2018 (Cambridge News).
We've been featured in Vogue Magazine, BBC News & Breakfast, The Guardian, The Independent, and Greece's national Star Channel, but we're not bragging. Okay, maybe we're bragging a little.
Several of our products have been awarded the Great Taste Awards Quality Badge, which is pretty impressive considering that we didn't even have to bribe anyone. We're committed to bringing you the best of Mediterranean cuisine and hospitality, just as our family has done for generations. So, come on in, kick back, and let us feed you like one of our own.
