Description: Welcome to Olive & Oil, your taste of the Med in Umhlanga! Situated in the heart of our bustling village, Olive & Oil has been the "go to" spot for Umhlanga's locals, tourists, business-people and families since 2006. It's the perfect venue for lazy lunches on the verandahs, watching the world go by in the village below. The cool interior is elegant and intimate yet lively, allowing for brilliantly buzzy dinners. We aim to give you a superior dining experience as well as outstanding service. Our menu covers a wide range of dishes with a feel of the Med and caters for all, including children (with a play area inside)! Whether it be our succulent prawns, mouth-watering steaks, pizzas and pastas, our friendly staff and management team will always ensure your experience will be one worth repeating over and over again. We look forward to serving you soon!

Recommend you climb to stairs to this place where there are some well priced lunch specials with attentive service and very pleasant ambiance. Sorry that we couldn't try dinner there.

“Top quality venue but a bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed an excellent seafood platter. It was a joy to be served by a professional waiter who could talk knowledgeably about the food and wine. It's a very popular venue (you need to book). It's a but pricey for everyday dining, but excellent value for a special occasion.

Portions are massive...but am told that's " normal" for South Africa! The Creme brûlée was good too.

Was a lovely meal, but no fish was available on the night. Was a little disappointing. Ended up having a pizza and a salad
