When the staff and I got to the restaurant we were greeted by a petite, beautiful, neat young lady named Sunay. She seated us at our table and once again we were greeted by a bubbly waiter full of smiles took our orders and hot delicious food came delivered to us yet again with smiles. It a special day cause it was our working colleague's birthday and the staff at olive and oil went the extra mile to make her day special. Thank you!!!!!!!! once again to the staff of olive and oil UMHLANGA. I really do recommend the restaurant to everybody I know. Ulisha Singh (Redefine Dental Team)

This family restaurant is the place to go in Umhlanga if you are looking for good quality food and service at reasonable prices. We all had a very pleasant evening and would definitely return.

Had lunch here 2 weeks ago with a group of friends. Spacious restaurant, friendly staff. We had the chicken livers which were done in a spicy gravy, a really well prepared & tasty dish. For my main I ordered the Ceaser Salad as I had a dinner out as well. Salad was disappointing. Nice fresh greens but no anchovies in sight! Croutons were pieces of baguette lightly toasted. Dressing overdone as well so a poor choice. My wife had the prawn pasta, very heavy handed with chilli, no parmesan. Again could have been a great dish but let down by poor plating. Others had the usual dishes, crumbed chicken, steaks, which were hearty servings. It did appear the restaurant was geared for family dining with the emphasis on larger portions (actually average portions in SA!).

A pleasant enough experience, reasonably priced but not enough to warrant another visit.

Seafood platter was excellent. The food did take quite a bit of time to prepare, but you are at the coast, so sit back and relax!

Beautiful view, excellent surrounding, food is average. prawns are not that grand. Staff are friendly, but when we approached them just before dinner time, they were closed and offered us a seat outside in the cold. and by the time we were done, very few people were actually sitting inside with loads of seats available. We were disappointed.
