“Tasty 5 star cuisine at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

I went to lunch at Olive and Oil in Glenwood this week and having a natural passion for food, I've always enjoyed the creativity and flavour combinations of food. Olive and Oil have a really great menu consisting of a variety of delicious dishes infused with colour, creativity and an abundance of flavour to impress any palette. Their lunch menus add real value for money, with a variety of options that are served fast and efficiently with a complimentary glass of wine. If you check in on facebook you receive a complimentary strawberry daiquiri :-) I would recommend their fillet in peri peri starter, Homemade fish cakes and their Chilli, coriander and lime prawns as well as their really phenomenal Parma ham Chicken breast (to die for), to name a few of delightful dishes. They also have a great variety of wines for all the wine lovers out there and their wine of the month options are really great. Thank you for providing a quality dining experience, amazing food and for the great service once again, I look forward to my next visit.

“Great setting, decor, service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I hadn't been to Glenwood Olive & Oil before but was very pleasantly surprised. The location doesn't have major appeal but when you walk in, it's transformed. The decor is lovely and service excellent. I went at lunchtime and had their lunch special which was delicious. Fishcakes to start, prawns for main and a glass of wine. All for R99. I will definitely go back
