It is always great to take a slow drive to Wilderness from George and enjoy a pleasant evening at The Blue Olive. The restaurant has upgraded over the past few months and is looking great. The atmosphere has improved considerably. My wife and I has a great affordable meal tonight. The cocktails were great and finished off with a "lekka"... More

Probably the best egg breakfast and Americano coffee I have had at a restaurant in a long time! It was so fresh and not too oily. You are surrounded by trees and wooden deck so it is a very earthy feeling. The service was quick and friendly. There is a lot of shade and very little tables with sunshine, so... More

We wanted to go for a quick lunch but ended up walking after quick drinks seeing that service and atmosphere was way under par..

We sat on the outside deck, sipping away on cocktails and enjoying some tapas. The mains we ordered was a "Seekos Potjie," which is a traditional South African dish that they prepare in a black cast iron pot. It was divine- packed with flavor and a touch of love!! We will be back.

The food was absolutely amazing and the service was really on point. This has become one of my favourite restaurants when I come for a break in Wilderness. All I can say is, try this restaurant when you're in Wilderness. You will not be disappointed.

I spent 8 days in Wilderness and went back every day. Try their burgers - fantastic! Highly recommended. Waiters are young, vibrant, friendly - I didn't go anywhere else so I can't compare because they ticked all my boxes!

We've had good (not great) experiences at this restaurant before but this time around it was very disappointing. On the day of our visit there was no water in the village. These things happen. The waiter was very apologetic about that and of course we understand these things - who can control a pipe burst? What was not acceptable was... More

Busy restaurant. Food was good and vegetarian options were adequate. But they were understaffed and the service was lacking. Had to wait a long time to get the attention of the waiter who was obviously over worked. Great location.
