Description: The much anticipated Pietermaritzburg branch of Olive and Oil has opened with rave reviews in the resurgent Cascades Shopping Centre in the Montrose area. Situated on the side of the centre with views up into the green forests, the restaurant setting combines understated formality in the newly revamped dining area as well as a very popular picturesque deck area, a perfect setting for that romantic dinner or an upmarket venue to host business lunches.First impressions are of the ambience, so come in and relax in an area that fills one with an immediate sense of wellbeing. The eatery boasts an inventive menu with great daily specials that already have connoisseurs and gourmands beating a path to the new 'culinary hotspot'. This is a true fine dining family restaurant. At Olive and Oil the emphasis is on great quality food, and outstanding service. The opening of this brand in Pietermaritzburg has added a new and exciting dimension to the eating out experience.

“Outstanding service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Unequaled in service. Staff are really friendly and attentive without being intrusive. They feel better trained than any other restaurant in Maritzburg on simple basics like etiquette of plate removal. Small things, added up make a very pleasant experience. And yes, the food is very good too.
