My husband and I enjoyed a really great meal while in Tulbagh. On arrival we received the infamous olive dip and cracker which gets the appetite going. The service was friendly and extremely efficient. We both ordered the pork ribs, the meat fell off the bone, we have never had such great ribs ever. I would recommend booking a seat... More

We had to wait 45 min to get a simple breakfast.... Check how full they are before sitting down. Food was Ok , we ordered some poached eggs and scramble.

Staying over in Tulbagh on a road trip and went for dinner at The Olive Terrace. Very friendly staff and although we didn't book, which we should have, as it is a very popular place, we got a table on the veranda! Our meal was really good!

During our stay in Tulbagh my wife and I returned to the Olive Terrace on a number of occasions as the quality of the food was so good. We found the staff to efficient and attentive, the selection of dishes varied. I particularly remember my fillet steak to have been the best I had on our three week Cape tour.

Place has nice big terrace and inside restaurant area. Due to a booking of the whole terrace we were placed inside, in a charming dining room. Our company opted for the steak, pulled pork sandwich and vegetarian burgers. Wine choice is vast and reasonably priced, seeing that most wines are from the region. Service was attentive, friendly and perfectly timed.... More

The service at the Olive Terrace was exceptional. Our waiter was charming, knowledgeable and very helpful. We had Chicken with Mozzarella and Steak Medallions both of which were delicious. They also have a fine selection of very good wines.

A very good evening in the court yard, eating amazing smoked smoke pâté, sipping chilled wine, then enjoying delicious lamb burgers under a tree with fairy lights listening to a very talented musician offering live music. Magic!

Visited Tulbagh earlier this year with family. The food was top notch and staff very friendly and helpful. The menu offers a lot of choice as well as healthier options. Looking forward to returning (hopefully) in the not to distant future!
