No surprises, nor good nor bad... The food was good and the servic friendly and helpful. P.S.: There was one pleasant surprise, though: a non-smoking policy on the outdoor terrasse was not only in place but was also enforced by the waiters without my having to make a complaint. Thank you!

Great for a drink while watching the world go by, especially at happy hour! Check out the extensive cocktail menu.

You know those nights when there's a big match on and you don't have a tv? Or when you just really feel like a local beer (on tap) or a cocktail? Those are the nights we always end up in Blue Olive. Staff always friendly, the drinks are cheap, the wifi is free and the vibe is chilled. In fact,... More

We came here for lunch and had the Kudu and Kudu burger. It was very tasty. The African hot salad was great to.

Have eaten at Blue Olive a number of times and I would like to see the consistency of the food to improve. My last experience was disappointing. Ordered the Kingklip (my favourite Fish in South Africa) with Tentacles. I requested to have it prepared Cajun and not dusted. The delivery of the dish took longer as expected particular as the...

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.
