Having been in South Africa for two weeks staying with friends this was one of our last nights before heading back to the UK. The company was obviously excellent, and the food and service matched it. Sadly the cheesy langoustine tails from a previous visit were no longer on the menu but that was our only tiny complaint.

Same friends, same time - just a year after my first experience and review and if anything Olive & Oil has got even better. All 3 of had fish - their recommended grilled Kingklip was a decent size and done exactly as Kingkilp should be; while the 2 Sole eaters finished their grilled numbers leaving only the symmetrical skeletons as...

I always enjoy my meal here, the service is exemplary and the ambiance is great. Never noisy but just the right level of chatter.
