Olives is conveniently located in the town centre. Great place for a family dinner. The garlic bread and pizza were exceptional. Customers at other tables were commenting on the food quality and taste. Would highly recommend.

By far the best meal I have had since landing in NZ 6 days ago. The food is superb. The chef cares about his menu and has put his creativity into the dishes offered. We felt welcome and were culinarily satisfied! Do yourself a favour and give Olives a go.

After seeing the positive reviews on this website, my partner and I headed straight to Olives after arriving in Taupo at the dinner hour. We were pleasantly surprised to have the door held open for us by staff on arrival, and indeed had all the attention we desired during our meal. This was part good service and part a way to alleviate boredom, which was etched on the faces of the staff.

We ordered a margherita pizza and fries with aioli for starters and risotto and lasagna for mains. Aside from the fries, the food was quite bland. The lasagna was so overcooked the noodles had turned almost to a paste. Everything tasted just a little bit off, including the prosecco my partner ordered.

The only thing we really enjoyed were the fries. We left food on our plates. I wouldn't go back.
