We were beyond impressed with the service and food. I am always inclined to order pasta when we eat out and I always need to add salt, which I didn't need to do for the first time. The pasta also had an equal balance of pasta and creamy chicken which you rarely find. I was also blown away by the... More

having visited this restaurant about 10 years ago , decided to try this place out again for a light lunch. I was so impressed with the decor , professionalism of staff and excellent food. The sole sea food was so fresh and the vegetables were excellent. Will visit again for a superb dining experience.

We decided to have lunch here during our holidays. The ambience of this restaurant is very pleasant although the food was fairly average. I had the deep fried Camembert which was a bit too oily and a bit cold and a seafood platter which was okay. I was a bit dissapointed as the food failed to deliver for the price.

Visited with my parents on their race review during a Christmas vacation. The decor and setting, at first glance was good, but on closer examination the perishing faux leather chairs were comfortable, but on the most part were need of upholstering. That is however not the reason for the visit. We all had steak for dinner and were of a... More

We went to olive and oil when it was very busy, and we were still served as if it was a quiet evening. The food was cooked very well

We have an office close to O&O Glenwood and have been regular visitors over the past years. Also a regular visitor to O&O Hillcrest. We had our staff lunch on 18 December at Glenwood and what a disappointment! The music was awful (definitely not Mediterranean) and when I remarked on this our waiter said that the owners did not allow... More

I have been enjoying meals at Olive and Oil for several years in Umhlanga, Glenwood and Ballito when it was still open. Both service and food are consistent and good. Prices and variety of dishes ensure that you will find something to your liking. I am never disappointed.

Let me first say that I have been to the Olive and Oil restaurants on many occasions in the past and never been disappointed. Unfortunately I had a disappointing meal yesterday. (I won't be one of those people who rush out and lambaste them unfairly with load-shedding and all.) I had the haloumi chicken. It looked great but tasted very... More
