I've been twice since they moved. I won't go again. I'm not sure what changed, but the ambiance and food are not up to their previous standard. One of my pet peeves. If the menu says rocket, don't serve lettuce. But it's more than just...More

This is a sweet restaurant tucked away off a busy road but with a delightful garden ambience. Good food and good service as well.

This is probably the healthiest option for a restaurant lunch in Harare. Fresh, good salads, generous servings and wonderful fresh juices. Friendly service and nice environment. They also serve a good breakfast, both as "full English" or "Health" options. I regulary invite for business breakfasts...More

Having spent a lot of time in developing countries, I have come to learn the true value of a good salad that doesn't make you sick! Everything here is of the highest standard and unfailingly FRESH. The smoked salmon salad is amazing. All serves are...More

Beating the typical Harare trend, Gudrun and Pete continue to deliver the best, using organically grown and ethically sourced ingredients. We visit this great eatery as first choice for lunch whenever we are in Harare. Try the salmon salad and always ask George for the...More

Just a brief comment. Been there three times, twice with my wife, once on business. Lunch on every occasion, very generous servings, well cooked, good value for money. Service friendly and efficient, lots of owner involvement. A bit pricey, but not over the top.

Open Mon-Sat 8am-5pm. Sundays 9am-4pm. A few months ago, The Olive made the short move to 11 College Road in Alexandra Park. The new location is a house we have adapted to accommodate the restaurant. Self-described as a restaurant specialising in healthy cuisine, The Olive is a relatively unique dining experience in Harare. We have substituted the heavy, unhealthy options normally gracing restaurant menu pages for healthier, more nutritious options that you just know are extending your lifespan. While a lot of us are apprehensive about this style of cooking, the dishes are absolutely delicious. On top of that, the food prices are reasonable and we have a variety of dishes to choose from. The Olive has a casual and relaxed atmosphere as customers can choose to sit outside by the pool or inside, under cover, if they prefer.We do outside catering, takeaways, office parties, kiddies’ lunches and lots more. Recently joining our team are Gibson and Claude (2 top Chefs from Victoria Falls.) We have also added a small kiddies play area. Our inside parking is quite substantial.
