Olea Mediterranean Taverna

by cochrancj

Mediterranean in Fort Green.

What We Had


I had the Lamb Hash – Lamb shoulder slowly roasted with spices, lemon potatoes, carrots and turnips topped with a crispy olive oil fried egg, tomato jam and whipped feta. This dish was magnificent. The lamb was melt-in-your-mouth tender, and the veggies were caramelized in all that lamby goodness – a winner.


My DH had the Spanish Poutine – Potatoes with Berkshire pork gravy, chorizo, Spanish cheese and scallions. This dish was great as well. Rich, great cheeses, and a great breakfast.



Small but open and airy dining room loaded with old world charm. Very busy for brunch.


Not bad, despite the business.

Overall Impressions

This is a neighborhood gem and a great spot for a decadent brunch.


4 to 4.5 out of 5. Some dissension in the ranks – mostly because the DH hates Mediterranean and the lamb bite he had featured the spice mix that makes him sick. No complaints otherwise.
