The place is very nice. They have different types of seating inside and out. Food was very good, the steak and the burger.
Staff was very good and friendly. I would come back.

Being a foodie one can become quite critical sometimes. You sometimes just want simple food, well prepared from fresh ingredients and recognizable in its original form. What a great restaurant. Perfect lunch spot to watch passing trade whilst enjoying tapas and great selection of SA wine. Fresh wild oysters from Mosselbay set the scene. Calamari and fish cakes were tasty and not oily at all. Yellowfin tuna seared the way I like it and my husband's fried hake was crispy on the outside and flaky on the inside. Malva pudding was something I couldn't resist and not sorry I succumbed to the temptation! A spot not to be missed when on holiday or even a local resident.

We had a difficult time choosing whether to go to the Fava Cafe or the Blue Olive - and soooo happy we went with the Blue Olive.
The food was amazing and the service very good.
The owner is present and makes you feel very welcome.
We would definitely go back the next time.

They can maybe just take the SPORTS and News off the TV to make the atmosphere less pub-like.

This local place in wonderful Wilderness is well worth a stop. We sat on the elevated terrace which is built around the trees and so creates a delightful, shady spot to munch delicious fresh fish and people watch in the tiny village. Breakfast and good coffee is also a treat and the prices are right.

The service is as casual as the place and the area, but efficient and friendly.
