Outstanding fresh seasonal cooking in a family friendly country environment

The Fat Olive Restaurant shares its idyllic home with Costa Alta Beach Bar and Stornoway Lodge. Situated on the R512 route from Joburg to Harties, this popular destination is the perfect day out for anyone looking to enjoy a mouth-watering meal while relaxing in the countryside.

A spectacular view of the dam is enhanced further by the paddle boats and wildlife. Kids can enjoy the large play area. The live music on weekends creates a festive atmosphere and the extensive birdlife keeps you entertained with their song on weekdays.

The food lives up to this spectacular setting with regulars traveling from far and wide to enjoy the likes of Crispy Eisbein, fall off the bone oxtail, and our signature seafood pasta to name a few.

The property provides an ideal setting for any celebration. We welcome all types of celebrations, from anniversaries, kid’s birthdays, adult birthdays and even weddings.
