I was very excited to go and try out The Olive Restaurant, as the menu seemed promising. Unfortunately the whole experience was sub par to say the least. Our waitress was very welcoming when she greeted us, but somewhere along the line she lost that. Her sour attitude towards us was uncalled for, and as a paying customer, I do... More

Went here together with the family to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Food was well over average and the service was good. Nice atmosphere on the terrace.

This restaurant offers a view from their patio that is lovely. My husband ordered the game steak (springbok) and it was good. I ordered beef filet which was large but not as tender as I hoped. The service was very pleasant.

A wonderful nook to settle in for an after long lunch or sunny breakfast - this is high class all the way.
