It is a nice place with some rustic charme. The food especially the oysters were fine. The waitresses were friendly and competent

Bright lights look attractive, so we booked a table. There is a bar for the heavy drinkers. Good vibes, nice music. Good service. Food is good if you order the right stuff. Burgers are not great, but the rest is good. Very affordable.

We have visited the Blue Olive twice since it has been newly renovated. The staff are friendly and helpful. Prices reasonable. The food is great. We had the grilled hake and chips. Love the new menu and will definitely be back

We had tapas, pasta and burgers and enjoyed the food. The staff was very friendly and the terrace is a nice place to sit and watch the streets in Wilderness Centre.

This was always a good spot, but after the revamp it's better. The main meals are really great. Tapas are a bit pricey but worth it, the portions are generous.

Probably the best place to eat in Wilderness. Out of 3 we tried I was impressed with the quality of the food, fast & efficient service & the reasonable prices. Looks & feels a little strange at first but the food soon makes you like it!
