We came by accident, and were pleasantly surprised

The Girls were closed so we chose Blue Olive instead, in spite of the blue light. We had very good food, and found this place more cozy than the Girls.

Chicken slider is worth the price. Apple cake was very good! Good ambiance for dinner. Prices on menu are good.

The happy medium I think. If you not sure which of the 7 restaurants you want to visit (all within walking distance from each other) or not sure what you actually want to eat, this is the right place to go. Food good, drinks reasonable, service acceptable.

We spent our day in Wilderness basically waiting on our waiter... We ordered drinks from a rude waiter, no personality what so ever. Food order was taken from a different man looking like a barman.. but the food was great when it finally arrived. Atmosphere was very loud music for 12 o'clock in the afternoon. The biggest confusion was that... More

We stopped here twice in one week with our recent visit to Wilderness. The food was great and so was our waitresses on both nights. Really delicious Tapas and Seafoon. Will definately return. The ambiance is also great, especially on a balmy summer evening. Watching the locals and tourists go by is also a treat. Thank you for your service.... More

Waiting over an hour for our meal was one thing. The excuse that there was a big party in didn't help much. The fact that the two tables next to us got their food before us even though they'd arrived later really took the biscuit. That is all we will remember although actually the ambience was good and the food... More

We drove past the restaurant every evening en route to our rental accommodation and decided to give it a try on our last night in Wilderness. We were not disappointed, the service was excellent, the food was good (seafood potjie, schnitzel, prawns and calamari strips) and we received good value for money. On the downside - and this in no... More
