This was a society meeting so we had the upper floor to ourselves. A nice venue with a smoklng deck both half inside & outside to not let the smokers get wet in bad weather. Service was good, personal & pleasant (thank you Joshua!). Starters were the most lovely garlic mushrooms in a cream sauce with avocado; never had that... More

My friends and I enjoy going to lunch - the special offer allows you to choose between a starter and a desert (both great selection) or a starter and main course PLUS you get a glass of wine or fruit juice included in the price. Good food good value foe money and good service

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience here. I had the rump steak with gorgonzola and bacon and my wife had the Kingclip Odyssey. Both meals were excellent. Even though they staff were very busy on a Saturday evening they were very attentive and efficient. I would highly recommend dinning here.

I took a client for lunch here– they have lunch specials but limited choice and smaller portions with a free glass of plonk did not appeal – we ate off the a la carte menu – tasty well prepared food and a nice selection of wines - recommended

We visited Olive & Oil for dinner and we had a wonderful time! There was something for everyone and we had 3 generations of family from all over the world. The food came quickly and was delicious and our waiter, Bradley, was super efficient and friendly! All in all a great night out and we would all highly recommend it!
