The services was good and the food was excellent. The menu has a very large variety of dishes to choose from. We all ate different meals at the table, but everyone was satisfied.

My wife and I had our first dinner here when we arrived in Wilderness. We popped in because they advertised gluehwein (my fav drink) and they have a fire place in winter. 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.

This was my second visit to this restaurant in winter, simply to enjoy their yummy homemade soup. You can sit outside or inside, but will enjoy a warm reception and excellent food. The restaurant serves a homemade soup of the day, quite a nice portion with a garlic ciabatta roll. It is simply delicious. I hope they keep up this... More

The place is very nice. They have different types of seating inside and out. Food was very good, the steak and the burger. Staff was very good and friendly. I would come back.
