Simply the very best Mediterranean restaurant in the outer west. Excellent vegan alternative. Both casablanca and Marrakesh pizzas being delicious. Service always first Class along with pricing and ambience.

Had a nice evening, the staff were friendly and the food was great. We had the Gorgonzola Fillet with bacon and a Fisherman's platter. The seafood was good and fresh and the fillet was delicious and tender. Nothing beats the taste of fresh seafood. Overall a good atmosphere and enjoyable evening. Thumbs up

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to Date Night last week, as we had seen so many yummy pics and good posts on facebook etc. Well, even if i took a pic of the platter, it would not have done it any justice!! The meal was so heavenly, that I was sad when I finished my last mouthful... More

Had Sunday lunch at Olive and Oil, Hillcrest, they had a special price lunch menu, and the choices we had were excellent. Ambience was very nice and they had a fantastic musician who made it an even more pleasant experience. Well recommended.

After having an absolutely horrible experience at a “fine dining” establishment two days prior, I was pleasantly surprised by the food, service, menu and ambiance of this small little restaurant, Olive & Oil, in a shopping centre in Hillcrest. Firstly, we were able to take the children with, a no no at the aforementioned fine dining establishment. Secondly, the children... More

We were two adults for lunch on a Sunday. The ambience is pleasant and relaxed, with both indoor and outdoor seating. Service was prompt and attentive. The menu is extensive, offering beef, fish, pasta and seafood dishes with a Mediterranean flavour. The food was tasty and well-presented. The wine list is limited, but refined. Highly recommended.

Both 2012 and 2013 was a unanimous vote to book at Olive and Oil Restaurant in Hillcrest for our Xmas function and once again we were not dissappointed. Both years we were in the private room which is stunning and the food was excellent. Last year Cam was our waitress and could not be faulted at any time. She was... More
