Me and my fiance had a wonderful time at Olivello. The food, wine,atmosphere and scenery leaves you with a true Stellenbosch experience. In fact we are planning our wedding reception there early next year and cannot wait to visit the farm again. Thank you!

Enjoyed the Mediterranean lunch with the family ( 22 in the party). We could not fault anything. The food, the atmosphere and the service were excellent. Was money well worth spending. Thank you!

What a setting! Wonderful food and great atmosphere for the kids - my 3 year old thoroughly enjoyed the swing and all the toys! I've been to a couple of places in and around Stellenbosch and Olivello was a welcome surprise to the usual.
