Everything the serve is wonderful! The gourmet pizzas never disappoint, their pasta with the chorizo, olives and pesto is my favourite, and the desserts are a delicious indulgence. The Black Olive is one of the best places to eat in Kerikeri, but make sure you...More

What a fabulous place to dine... warm and inviting and my steak was perfect. My friend had the seafood risotto and the chef adjusted the recipe to fit her needs. Highly recommend 👍

Our family has enjoyed going to the black olive since it very first opened. We were sad to see it sell and the standard drop. We came in for our mums 60th birthday and we all agreed that the food was amazing!! Service was excellent....More

Thank heavens! After a dismal period The Black Olive is back in the hands of former ownership. The restaurant has been refurbished. Speaking volumes of the management many of the original staff have rejoined the team. The pizzas are excellent, the accompanying menu is comprehensive...More

Questions & Answers
I also dined at this restaurant last night and came here to post a glowing review for the staff and meals we all received last night. So I beg to differ with Ms Hannam21 and find this review quite disturbing and dillusional. I was dining near these customers who were all clearly drinking alcoholic beverages. We were dining at a large table and a member of our group even approached the owners out of concern should they need our support in dealing with you and your group. You spoke rudely, you demanded, you did not listen clearly to what the staff were informing you and continued to harass all staff when they tried to clarify things. I could see the wrist bands on your hands indicating you had all been to the Paihia food and wine festival which indicates, as well as your behaviour that you had previously consumed alcohol before coming out to this restaurant. There was also one member of your group who was persistently up and down at the bar harassing the staff. And young lady for someone who does not post reviews I have just read the many you have left here and they are ALL complaints for other places...... so perhaps you just dine at home in the future. Thank you Black Olive for an awesome evening...we will be back!!!!

Thank you so much for your feed back. I am sorry you were subjected to the unpleasant behaviour from these customers. The festivals in Northland are great but unfortunately we then have to deal with the odd unsavoury... More
