Was not disappointed by olive, the staff attentive, very busy, coffee fantastic, with good recommendation on a variation of my usual lime and soda, and a bellini to make the breakfast a bit more decadent. Everything from the service to the food was flawless. Our waiter, forgot to get his name, was constantly around should we have needed anything....not that... More

Me and my partner were travelling through New Zealand in August/September and were in desperate need of a lovely date night with delicious food and wine. Olive delivered to the highest degree! I had a beautifully presented, and undeniably heavenly, vegan two course meal. The deep fried, cashew "not-zerella" was so good my partner agreed it was as amazing as... More

My partner and I went here for dinner last night for his birthday - after being recommended by a few people in the Wellington Vegan group. It was wonderful! Food was delicious and customer service was outstanding! We were quite late due to being new to the city and not used to time required to find a park and staff... More

We went to Olive for breakfast while in Wellington. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. It was a little cold for us to sit outside but I popped my head in the the back patio and it is beautiful.

Awesome friendly yet professional service. They even let me in a little bit earlier before they officially opened for the day. Thank you - I appreciated that. Service, coffee & breakfast were all outstanding. Highly recommend.

Some of the best food I've eaten in NZ. Excellent vegetarian mushroom pie and the duck was brilliant too. Recommended.

There was a good choice of both food and drink from soft drink, craft beers and wines. The fish was excellent. It took about 30 minutes to arrive after the first course finished. The cost for 2 people was 100 $NZ.

Came in for brunch a few weeks ago after hearing great reviews of the restaurant. Although it wasn't busy, it took a long time to be seated and once we were sat down we weren't seen for 15 minutes. Staff were really rude and seemed uninterested and unhappy with the exception of our waitress Jackie who was very sweet if... More
