We turned up and the place was full, they nearly turned us away but said if we wanted to we could sit around the corner in the back tables and have a drink. They warned us that there might be a wait because it was...More

Looked at the takeaway menu a couple of days earlier and thought it was pizza and pasta but what a great surprise when we got the full menu. Had a delicious meal, Northland oysters to start, great fish and chips and decadent yummy dessert. Great...More

The food is ok, a bit pricey maybe, but the ambiance in front and in the back could definitely use some attention.

Pizzas was on the small size, and pricey for what you get. BUT they were tasty and the service was good as was the ambiance

Sorry, I was disappointed with the pizza we got as a takeaway...I hadn't been to Kerikeri for a while and The Black Olive has obviously changed hands since I last got a pizza there. The pizza's used to be great.... Just didn't do it for...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!!!!
