RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 7 February 2017

Lovely setting, wide choice on menu and attentive staff. Made to feel very welcome without being informal. Food was very good, recommend Camembert in filo pastry and as main course Ostrich steaks😋😋😋. This should be on your agenda if you stay here in Umhlanga rocks.

A lovely big restaurant with excellent service. The food was not extraordinary but it was an enjoyable evening. The menu has a great variety of vegetarian options and for that reason especially we will go back.

Olive & Oil Umhlanga A delightful stylish greek atmosphere awaits one upon arrival and is matched with attentive and friendly service. After watching the "Dell Match play" we opted for the "Big Easy" Cabarnet Sauvignon which had full bodied fruity flavours softly supported by deep tannins. The mussels floating in a rich creamy white wine and herb sauce was delectably... More
