Olives and FigsTucked away in the historical Artillery Passage near Liverpool Street Station, Olives and Figs is a cosy and casual Mediterranean restaurant with an old-world setting and an authentic Turkish menu. This neighbourhood gem has been simply decorated with wooden floors, warm colours and rustic wooden furniture, and all of Olives and Figs' grills are cooked over charcoal. You can even bring your own wine without incurring a corkage fee. Popular for parties and family nights out, Olives and Figs is a favourite haunt for both locals and tourists alike - the restaurant is conveniently located for meals before or after Jack the Ripper London tours - and everyone loves Olives and Figs' affordable prices and friendly service.
