2 Beaconsfield Road, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL1 3RD
The Olive Tree Lounge in St Albans really stands out from the crowd and is the deserved winner of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and an OpenTable Diners’ Choice 2015 award. Offering tasty, freshly prepared dishes at competitive prices, this restaurant has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with great service to boot. As a starter I’d recommend the chicken livers with piri piri sauce, and my main course of spicy blackened cod featured a fabulous chunky portion of fish that was light and extremely tasty. However, the showstopper was the special of spiced marinated lamb cutlets with Dauphinoise potatoes, served with apricot and chilli sauce. It was a real masterclass in combining flavours. The desserts too are impossible to resist. Try the delicious dark silky chocolate fondant with butterscotch ice cream – it’s well worth indulging in.
