Same friends, same time - just a year after my first experience and review and if anything Olive & Oil has got even better. All 3 of had fish - their recommended grilled Kingklip was a decent size and done exactly as Kingkilp should be; while the 2 Sole eaters finished their grilled numbers leaving only the symmetrical skeletons as...
