We attended a school end of year function. Even tho we had booked in advance for h that Friday we waited two hours for our meals and they were either incorrect or cold. I'll never patronise this place again.

Four of us went there on a business lunch. Apart from the fact that some of what was on the drinks menu was not available (and the waiter was not aware of it when we placed our order - the same happened to the desert order), the atmosphere was good and the food excellent. Each person had a different selection... More

I hadn't been to Glenwood Olive & Oil before but was very pleasantly surprised. The location doesn't have major appeal but when you walk in, it's transformed. The decor is lovely and service excellent. I went at lunchtime and had their lunch special which was delicious. Fishcakes to start, prawns for main and a glass of wine. All for R99.... More

I came for date night with my fiancé and loved the warm and classy atmosphere it really set the perfect relaxed and romantic mood. Our lovely young waitress Gigi recommended the best creamy pasta I've had (since I couldn't choose from all the mouth watering dishes... More
