“Used to be better and cheaper !”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

We have dined many times at Olive and Oil over the years and were always very satisfied.
Yesterday, however, we were really disappointed.
The service was not very attentive... no cutlery when main course arrived, additional potatoes arrived half-way through the meal, our ribs & lamb shanks both just 'so so' - and all of that for a lot of money.
There are better choices in Umhlanga nowadays and we also felt that the restaurant was not as busy as before - for good reason.

“Excellent service and meal....but just too pricey for what it is”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

We've dined at Olive and Oil many times over the years when we holiday in Umhlanga Rocks. As always our meal was excellent (sirloin steak and a chicken pasta) and the service was very attentive and just right. However, it's just become too expensive for what it is, so much so that Umhlanga friends who originally introduced us to the restaurant have stopped going there. It's prices are higher than equivalent and better eateries in Johannesburg's northern suburbs.

“Good value”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

The second story location gets you away from the noise of the numerous bars in the area. Service was not exactly prompt despite us being the only patrons at opening.
