Description: Enjoy a fusion of Mediterranean and Lebanese food. The restaurant has a vast outside area great for business lunches, families with children and big groups. We have a more intimate Terrace area for Romantic meals and Private Dinners as well as a beautifully decorated inside area, which is warm and cosy. We boast a huge bar outside with music, great for Cocktail Night, Happy Hours and more. Every other weekend we have a Jazz Band playing over Lunch time on a Sunday, which sets a great ambience to an already beautiful outside area.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Delicious food, good service, and reasonable prices. It's difficult to find a good shawarma in East Africa, but Fig & Olive have taken care of that!

“A great addition to the Arusha dining out experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

This restaurant has a contemporary feel, with a variety of seating in a large garden - outdoors, comfy chic, garden tables, and on the verandah of an old colonial style house. It is located in a peaceful but very accessible part of Arusha. There is a Middle Eastern flavour to the menu (as the name probably suggests). Excellent food, well presented and all at a reasonable price for a more upmarket eating venue. Service was very good - in fact almost too quick. Definitely looking forward to going there again next time I'm in Arusha.

“Great baba ganoush and much much more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Fig and Olive is a super addition to the complement of places to dine out in Arusha. Fresh Mediterranean food with excellent outdoor seating which can be arranged according to need....from intimate dinners or big working luncheons.
