"Proud to be acknowledged once again in the main food guides for 2018 - a huge thank you to our team and suppliers we could not do it without you."Julia & Lawrence
"We just wanted to thank you for making our special day even more special - exceptional food."Gill & Sarah 2017
"A 17th-century fishermen's cottage just a few steps from the quayside of pretty Emsworth harbour provides the setting for Lawrence and Julia Murphy's smart brasserie. The stripped-out interior of cream walls, wooden floors and unclothed tables is as unvarnished and honest as the food. Excellent raw materials do the talking and the menu is an appetising fusion of modern, well-thought-through ideas. It might take in salmon céviche with pickled cucumber and horseradish cream, then move on to roast duck breast with carrot houmous and orange in cumin jus. At the end, ginger parkin comes with plum compôte and matching sorbet."AA guide 2018
"Many, many thanks for such a great day on Sunday, we so enjoyed the learning experience because it was the first time either of us had jointed a fowl.

"We want to say a big thank you for making Beverley's birthday event such a success. Everyone had a lovely time and nothing but good things to say about Fat Olives, the food, the wine and the great service.

It was a special occasion and one which will live long in our memory and always bring a smile to our faces. Thank you."Beverley & Graham October 2017

"Diners Verdict " A tremendous dining experience; the Murphys' "small" fixture, in an old fisherman's house on the hill leading to the harbour, has a disproportionately huge fan cub thanks to its "beautiful" cooking (particularly fish), "intimate" style and "lovely" service."Sunday Times "Incredible Edibles Top 200" Nov 2013
"Thank you so much for giving up your free time and teaching me the basics of ‘good food’. It was a great morning and good to meet a few like minded folk. Occasions like that really help build new relations"Gerard
"I think I have pointed out before that my limited vocabulary I really cannot do justice to the excellance of the food & service we all enjoyed on Friday. All I can say is thank you to you both and all the team. Again a brilliant afternoon."John December
