So glad we decided to come here! Great pizza and calamari, delicious 👍. The carnivore pizza was perfect, great base and perfect amount of toppings.

Nice place with nice food. We were there for a birthday celebration. Pricing was average. There was a good amount of parking out the back of the building. They also do takeaway which unfortunately had people coming into the area we were in and getting in our way.

Went with some friends for dinner last night. The atmosphere was lovely and warm, the service was outstanding, but unfortunately the food let them down. Did not enjoy my lamb rack which was very unevenly cooked, and the jus was just odd. None of our group suffered any meal envy either.

If you are looking for a gourmet pizza this is the place to go, either dine in or takeaway. Many other meal options available but to me the pizza's stand out, great selection and service is always delivered with a smile.

One of my sons had the steak and the rest had the salmon. Everyone was very pleased with their meal. The children all had kids meals which... More

This is a repeat visit and equally as good this time as the last visit to Kerikeri. The staff are very pleasant and obliging and the food totally delicious. We look forward to coming to town so that we can enjoy dinner at this location. My business colleague also enjoyed dinner here.

We purchased a range of pizzas from here and although the pizzas were ok if not a bit over priced we were disgusted when we saw a cockroach crawl from the box. We won't be going back.

jeminae, Owner at The Black Olive, responded to this review I am sorry to hear that. The cockroaches we have up here are native not the German unhygienic ones you find in invested places. We have a lot of trees and garden areas around our restaurant and that is where they live. Finding a native cockroach cruising around is really... More
