What a gorgeous little gem of a restaurant! Love this place! Delish PadThai pasta dish with prawns - ever so flavorful! I devoured the Frik Pizza ! Crispy thin base. Excellent, friendly service. Beautiful, outside setting! All in all a superb evening spent under the...Willow tree on their beautiful Tulbach Hotel terrace. Will definitely return when we are next in this part of the world. Thanks, Anthea for being a lovely hostess.More

We both had the full house breakfast. Best on the plate was the cauliflower and corn fritters! Would actually have been happy with a plate of those with the mushrooms! Lekker!!More

It was a little cold to sit on the terrace, but it reminded me so much of Italy with the fairy lights and the candles and the red and white checked table cloths. Inside, is warm and cosy and the staff are very very friendly....A nice menu to choose from - was difficult to make a decision but after much help from our waitress I chose the Schnitzel - and it was just perfect. Others at our table ordered pizza and everyone loved their choices. Great live music and just a relaxed, we are on holiday vibe. Will drive from Cape Town just to come for lunch to sit on the terrace. Keep up the great workMore

Always assured great service and friendly welcome at the Olive Terrace. We went with friends to the themed Chinese evening. Liana was immediately helpful when I asked if it would be possible to have a vegan option. It was delicious and the extra effort was...truly appreciated. Thank you once again to the team!More
