“Nice romantic dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Oliver's is just a 3 minute drive from Pine Lake Resort. We went on a Monday evening without a reservation. They were kind and helped us with a table since on a Monday the only serve there own guests. They had a different and smaller version of the menu to choose from, yet the food was very nice we had mains and desert. The portions were generous. The restaurant is in different rooms and there is an outside area as well with a big fire to make it cosy and warm. The service was fantastic and we enjoyed ourselves.

“Always hospitable and never disappoints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

This is one of our absolute favourites. We again had dinner at Oiver's and once again enjoyed it thoroughly. Lovely touch of gluwine before dinner just to shake off the winter cold. Lovely lounge with fires to enjoy your pre and after dinner drinks. Service excellent. Food most enjoyable.

“Warm and welcoming.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Everything about Olivers including the hotel is warm and welcoming. The restaurant staff headed by the owner, Tanya, are all well trained and so happy to please. The menu, whether for lunch or dinner is always varied and caters for all tastes. There are roaring log fires in the lounge in winter time and once seated with your pre dinner drink Tanya will come around and take the orders so that you don't have to wait around once seated in the dining room. She will have a chat and give you advice on your choices, and takes note of your likes and dislikes. Tanya is well known in the area and well loved and supported by the local people as well as tourists passing through, she remembers everyone and will always make a plan if you have forgotten to book. The food is scrumptious, beautifully presented and good value for money. The salad ingredients, vegetable and garnishes are mostly grown on the property so everything is healthy and fresh. I can honestly give every meal we have had there 100%. The Lodge and restaurant are a great place to stay on your way to or from Kruger Park.

“Try the wine cellar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

I spoilt my wife with a romantic dinner fondue style in the wine cellar of Olivers.

This was a great evening. Great great food.

And not too expensive.
