The Olive Belt


Located in the heart of a bustling road with a reputation as an up and coming culinary hotspot in Durban, Olive & Oil Glenwood is undoubtedly a leader in quality dining set to the casual backdrop of a Mediterranean-style ambiance.  As the old adage goes, the people of the Mediterranean region take their food seriously.  And so do we!


Situated in the heart of our bustling village, Olive & Oil has been the go-to spot for Umhlanga’s locals, tourists, business-people and families since 2006. It’s the perfect venue for leisurely lunches on the verandah, watching the world go by in the village below. The cool interior is elegant and intimate yet lively, allowing for brilliantly buzzy dinners.


The Hillcrest branch of Olive & Oil is positioned conveniently in the Lillies Lifestyle Centre on Old Main Road.

An ideal venue for celebrations or fantastic feasts, we also offer some of the country’s top producing wines, which can be perfectly paired with some of our signatures dishes. There is a private dining area for up to 25 people, perfect for a business dinner or special family occasion.


Situated on the side of the centre with views up into the green forests, the restaurant setting combines understated formality in the newly revamped dining area, as well as a very popular picturesque deck area, a perfect setting for that romantic dinner or an upmarket venue to host business lunches.
