We were a family group, 8 - ages from 6 to 60 - we had - gourmet pizzas, and a number of different dishes which we all shared, Sea food platter, Haloumi Risotto Stack, Thrice Cooked Pork Belly, and a Vietnamese Beef Salad, mouth watering, and it really is... full bar and a good selection of well priced wines.

We had a family dinner before a show so were under time pressure. Service was fast and pleasant. We all had gourmet pizzas just small size but they were quite big and we ended up taking them home in a doggy bag. Great tasting! Great wine and a good table away from the entrance as it was quite windy. Price... More

We were a party of 5 adults, that went to the Black Olive a few months ago. Each of us ordered a different dish, and we were all well satisfied with our choices. Unfortunately, my pizza was so delicious, that I won't be able to order anything else tomorrow night.

Went to The Black Olive for my birthday dinner with my family.For a start multiple waitresses to a large table caused a lot of confusion when we went to pay, and we think we may have been charged twice for dessert ?? Was to busy to come back to sort out, (maybe one waitress with an Ipad and bill to... More

There were a few minor hiccups with the entree not coming out at the right time but the waitress was very apologetic and overall we had a great... More

We had booked a table for Saturday evening and on arrival found the ambience of the restaurant really nice, with several fireplaces lit. Service was great, food was lovely, we had a steak meal and a seafood platter which was devine. Bread and assorted dips delicious, and the dessert delish. Returned the next night for takeaway pizza, traditional crust style.... More

Visited on a wet evening when The Black Olive was packed with diners all wanting to finish their meal and get home to watch the big rugby match. They were also snowed under with take away orders. They managed to find a table for us and the service was superb. We were advised there would be a wait for our... More

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.
