My wife and I had an excellent meal here, the food was a very high quality and the service was good and attentive without being intrusive.
As it was a mid-week out of season evening, it was understandably quiet which is unavoidable but the food more than made up for any lack of atmosphere.

We went to different restaurants and always had ups and downs throughout the lunch/dinner.
Here both our meals were very good; the desserts as well!
The lady is very nice and the waitresses perfect. There is not a huge amount of choice but enough for every needs (fish, meat or vegeterian).
We will go back there!
You need to book!

Found this restaurant on trip it and decided to give it a try as it said it had pizzas and vegetarian meals and also kid friendly. Unfortunately they weren't serving pizza in the evening and had limited vegetarian options. We ordered the fish instead which turned out to be one of the best fish meal I have been served in a restaurant. Excellent quality food and cooked to perfection! The service was excellent and they even accommodated my childs meal request of pasta with grated cheese. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a relaxed evenings dining.

Another fab few days in Knysna, and another FANTASTIC 3 dining experiences at The Olive Tree. Ellen welcomed my husband & I - who were last there in April - like old friends, and even offered to cook my husband "his favourite meal" when we celebrated his birthday there one evening (to which he replied that there was no need to go to any special trouble, as it was already on the menu!). We also left Knysna with an entire chocolate cake from Ellen's kitchen, which we are still enjoying a few days later. The Olive Tree offers truly great food &, wonderful ambience and warm hospitality - miss it and miss out! Debbie & Leonard Gebhardt
