Great Service and great food

My partner and I decided at the last minute to go out for dinner. The friendly staff were able to shuffle some seating around to accommodate us and the food we exceptional.

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

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.

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.

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.
