Popped in for a craft beer on tap. Nice to enjoy the view of people passing below on their terrace. Worth a visit.

My husband and myself went back a second time as we found the pizza the best in Port Elizabeth. We had excellent service from Ricky and were not disappointed with ordering a different pizza. The menu caters for all different tastes and we will definitely go back again.

Only negative is trying to book a table. We booked well in advance, but getting a table inside is a tough deal. Staff were very friendly and moved us in as soon as a table became available (1 hour after we had booked for) Food was yummy and staff friendly. Steak was cooked to perfection.

This place is a small restaurant. Great for a special occasion or a romantic dinner. We shared some tapas for starters which were absolutely amazing, the food is very well presented and the service is great. We shared the seafood platter which was quite big and very tasty.

We used to love the small restaurant with excellent mediterranean dishes but dont go here anymore because of the terrible accoustics. An evening out with family or friends shouldnt be a shouting-and-trying-to-hear mission. What a pity! Thought the owners would have realsed the problem by now and do something about it.

We went to 2 Olives because of the recommendations on TripAdvisor. We spent a beautiful e ending there. We had a table on the balcony and had 5 different Tapas dishes. The Tapas we tested were simply amazing. We also enjoyed the perfect and very friendly service of Jessie. Definetely a recommodation
