We had some cocktails before our meal which took some time to arrive, but which were very good. The restaurant has an extensive menu with an extensive list of tapas options, but also other options in terms of steak, burgers, chicken, seafood, and vegetarian meals; all very reasonably priced. Everybody in our party were very satisfied with their choices. The... More

Both of us ordered pork spare ribs which are served with potato wedges and vegetables. The spare ribs were average, with not much vegetables, However, the gluehwein was... More

We went to the Blue Olive in The Wilderness and we all enjoyed whatever we ate. A cosy fire welcomed us on a very chilly night. This restaurant caters for all tastes. The night we went, we all had fish. From a calamari and hake combo, prawns and a seafood potjie - everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal.

My Brother and I went here for dinner and cocktails. The cocktails are over-priced and whatever you do, please DO NOT order the Mojito!! (If I wanted rum and water with lemon and a sprig of mint on top, I would have ordered it......!!). The food was very good, but they ran out of chorizo, wich was a huge dissapointment... More

I had a taste of almost everything on the menu!B At least, the tapas and the starters. The waitstaff were attentive and interesting, and the whole evening felt special. Thank you.
