Great fish

Great lunch I had grilled kingklip, with rice and roasted veg. Best kingklip I had in a long time served piping hot . My husband had grilled hake also great . Went back tonight for a takeaway starter to take to our hotel. Ostrich salad was very nice. Great staff.

When ever you feel like relaxing and having something light go to Blue Olive. We had tapas and shared a few of these which was very tasty. The staff was friendly and we go there often when we visit Wilderness.

Those who may have read other reviews of mine will know I like the tablecloths, the fine glasses and elegant cutlery and crockery. Well. you are not going to get that here. Stressed wooden tables, paper napkins and old knives are what you get here. But a restaurant is about food not always ambiance Jill had a steak with garlic... More

Firstly, our waitron was really friendly and attentive. We were disappointed in the food that we ordered. My husband ordered the eisbein which was very dry and tough, and not served with authentic sauerkraut. I ordered a meat & cheese platter, which was disappointing. We loved the gorgeous dog and the cosy fire!

We had oysters for starters and a seafood platter for 2 and this was so delicious. The cheesecake was good I would go back for some more. Thanks to the staff who made it such a pleasant experience.
