Good food... great people... what else do you need? Possibly best we had in Namibia. Go there and try it yourself.

“Worth it”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Stunning decor, great service, tasty food. Accommodation in a class of its own! A perfect treat for a romantic evening. The menu is limited, but sufficient choices. No prices on the menu though, although all choices per course priced similarly. Only a few tables, so be sure to book!

“This is a special place”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

If you are looking for a special evening out- do visit this restaurant! It is an up-market eatery and the food is delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed, the view beautiful and the service also good! It is a bit more expensive than some of the other restaurants in Windhoek, but truly worthwhile. You do need to make a booking!

Reviewed 25 August 2012 via mobile

For an excellent but also unique eating experience The Olive is the place to go. It provides original culinary brilliance. You won't find the same fantastic meals,each hand crafted and made with care, anywhere else. It really offers you something special!
