The food is so fresh and so good! The owners are nothing but the absolute best people! First time here and the owner brought over complimentary hummus and dessert, now let me tell you I’ve been in the restaurant industry for a very long time and complimentary food is what makes my heart warm and feel welcomed and at home!!! The whole experience here was great! My cousin and I had the best time and talking to the very sweet owners! Thank you for such a great time we’ll definitely be back very soon!

First time here! Traveled from South Jersey and will be back! The food was so amazing. The service even better. The owners took time to welcome us, chat with us! I wish I could give 10 stars. Great fresh homemade food!

I visited on Friday night and was immediately impressed with how clean the restaurant is. The food was probably the freshest I’ve ever had anywhere on the 4 continents I’ve traveled to, and the owners are very friendly. The mixed grill entre, lentil soup and falafel were absolutely fantastic! Philly has a gem with Figs and Olives.

Fattoush salad with chicken...fantastic! Thoroughly enjoyed the lentil soup. The owner also shared a slice with garlic, feta and za'atar. Delicious! Next trip to Philly, I am heading back! I neglected to mentioned... The owner and his wife (I think) are amazingly nice and accommodating. They make you feel welcome.

I have never written a review in my life, but this place deserves one.I bought 12 inch personal pizza w pepperoni, falafel side, ck shawarma and baklava. Not only was the owner quick to make my order, he stopped to explain the menu to me because I was not familiar with Mediterranean items.Owner said they also make Italian food and the pizza is the best you will have. I’ve heard that a million times....I walk outside and try the pizza and wow... he was not lying. This pizza is ?. I’ve been back 3x since my first time in.I do notice their 16 inch pizza is thinner crust and slightly different, but still amazing.Excited to have this place in South Philly... they rock!!

When I tried the hummus I knew I had to leave a review! This hummus is a GAME CHANGER! That said, all of our food was delicious, and the owners were so sweet and kind! This is going to be a new favorite spot. Also, the Passyunk restaurant week deal here cannot be beat, you definitely get your money's worth and won't leave hungry.

So happy there’s a Mediterranean Restaurant on Passyunk. We ordered from Figs and Olives for the first time tonight and it certainly will not be the last! The Grilled Atlantic Salmon and Moussaka was delicious! The desserts were the perfect accompaniment to our dinner. The owners are very sweet, they gave us a complimentary delicious cookies. Can’t wait to try all of their other specialties!

Great addition to South Philly! Good assortment of food and owners are really nice. They're really busy during restaurant week, so if you can't get an order in or they don't answer your call, they're definitely worth trying again another day!

Absolutely delicious! We ordered the lamb chops and mixed kebab grill, the figs and olives app. and baklava for dessert. The owners were very kind and helpful. We will definitely be ordering from them again-hopefully soon!

The food is so good. We ordered the Shawarma and the pizza. The owner was so nice and made the pizza the way we wanted it. You can smell the fresh olive from the pizza. I will definitely go back and order from here.

Great addition to the neighborhood! The food is amazing and the owners are very kind and friendly. I highly recommend the kanafeh for dessert. This is going to be my new favorite lunch spot!

Sarah Monheim

Would definitely order from here again. Tried a bunch of items. The eggplant Napoleon and shish kebab were delicious. The feta in the figs and olives appetizer was perfect - creamy, crumbly, not too salty.

Paulie Pots

the eggplant salad & vegetarian platter were amazing, the calzone was huge!Fresh, great testing food, clean spot, and super friendly people!

Laura Baehr

Wow!! What a fantastic addition to Passyunk Ave. The grape leaves are incredibly fresh and delicious. The stuffed veggie pizza is amazing- the dough is so good. We also got the baklava which did not disappoint! The owners even threw in a little extra dessert for us. Would highly recommend!!
