This restaurant has great ambience, warm atmosphere and amazing decor.. The seafood that I ordered was fresh well prepared and presented. All other meals were equally tasty and service was friendly and prompt. Its well situated for private functions as well. Well done.

My sister and I had a fantastic meal at Olive and Oil. We shared the Mediterranean steak and the sole. The steak was incredibly soft and tasty and the sole was divine too. Our waiter Percy was attentive, charismatic and knowledgeable.

We love Olive and Oil @ Glenwood. The food is usually superb and services is excellent as well. We used to visit about 3 times a week.

Waiters and managers are extremely friendly. Food is really good. Try the Moroccan Chicken Pasta for delicious flavours and the Butternut filled Ravioli is wonderful and comforting.

We recently attended a 21st function in the private room overlooking the Woolworth's parking and Glenwood. The waiters were great, food tasty and ambiance perfect. No disturbances from other patrons or the car park below.

A firm favourite of Durbanites, Olive & Oil has consistently good fare at very reasonable prices. Attentive waitrons and great ambience, Glenwood branch is small enough to be cosy, yet not cramped. Loads of special menus catering for all tastes.
