Waiter repeated order to us and was incorrect and then still brought the incorrect meal after correcting him. He then came to ask if everyhting was ok, we told him the meal was wrong he didnt seem fazed at all and offered no apology. Food was also very average. Sorry guys

We went to watch the Arsenal match and ended up staying for supper as well, tapas came on a large plate to be shared, definitely enough for two people (5 choices) and the others had two different pasta dishes. We went back the next night for more tapas! Great service, friendly and busy restaurant

We stopped here to eat en route to Cape Town, and would definitely recommend it. Great breakfast, great service, very reasonable prices, and wonderful outdoor setting that is a relaxing break from the highway.

Attentive efficient service compliments the tasty food. Despite the busy road it's quite peaceful sitting under the trees. Worth a visit.

After seven days on the trail we six were looking for a good steak. Most of us opted for the kudu. I asked for medium rare but was given a medium well done steak which was replaced without any resistance and with a genuine apology from the owner. The replacement was a very good steak. We brought our own bottle... More

If you miss out on table bookings at other restaurants in the region, Blue Olive may be worth a venture. The menu is fine and there are enough staple 'hits' to please a varying palate or adventurous eaters. The food itself was good and the cost relatively cheaper than other neighbouring restaurants. Service wasn't particularly great but we believe that... More
