Nice food

Had a lovely meal there however, our quiet corner so we could talk became noisy with children jumping all over the raised seating cushion and in the bathroom entrance. Otherwise nice but will make sure we aren't seated in the back room next time.

Would rather pay a bit more and get a delicious pizza than the rubbish from pizza hut. Black olive has something for everyone, takeaway or dine in, good variety on menu, suits families, groups or couples.

always a great option for a meal here in kerikeri. from the scrummy pizzas to their menu, you will not be disappointed. in winter the fire is going, so the place is cosy warm.

I met up with some friends for dessert and it was very yummy. It could do with being a little cheaper but it was a nice experience but no personal touch from the wait staff.

Every time I eat at this restaurant I am always impressed at the service, the food and the overall welcome. Highly recommend the lamb.

Was okay at a pinch, but overpriced for some pretty unexciting food. Have heard good things about the pizzas, so maybe we should have struck to them.

Unusual, tasty pizza combinations with bases a little too thick and not as crisp as we would like. There is a reasonable range of other dishes. Prices a little on the high side for pizza, and certainly on the high side for non-pizza dishes in a small country town. Service was quick and generally very pleasant though with the usual... More

Black Olive came highly recommended and we popped in for a drink late afternoon, checked out the menu and reserved for the evening. We were very disappointed. We both ordered the same Pork Belly dish and whilst it looked spectacular it was a very messy and difficult dish to eat because of the way it was presented. In hindsight I... More

Good value food in a nice setting with friendly and efficient staff. The fish and chips was delicious, whatever "Bluenose" is its a very tasty fish! Light and sweet it was very good indeed. Great sticky toffee pudding too!

We ate here for two evening meals. One time Steaks the second time Pizzas. Both were excellent. We couldn't finish the Pizzas and salad so they were good enough to box them up for us to take away. Friendly and attentive service. Phone ahead if you think they may be busy. We only just got in on one night.
