A new(ish) spot in town for really good food.

A few months ago a new restaurant opened in Hoedspruit.Β  It has taken us a few weeks to get there to try their food. Last week the Bean and I stopped in for a bite and we were very impressed. After chatting to quite a few people from Hoedspruit I discovered that not everyone knows about the restaurant as it is tucked away – off the main road.

Ollies Restaurant and Delicatessen

Ollie’s is tucked away in Safari Junction just outside Raptors View and next to The African Summer Spa. Not to be confused with The Safari Club which is just across the way.

With a small but varied menu, the dishes served here are of outstanding quality. Time and care is taken with the food presentation and garnishing, resulting in a fine dining experience at affordable prices.

Although I did not get a chance to speak to the owner I gather that they are still waiting for their liquor license, so remember to take along a bottle if you would like an alcoholic beverage.

  1. We were in town for a few days and found Ollies quite by accident… i have to say…the food was amazing…the staff was enjoyable…and the owner is a barrel of laughs. Professional but personable and friendly, food fabulous yet unpretentious…he could have opened in NY and held his own with the big boys.
    See you in a few months when we come back there Ollie!!!! Keep a bottle cold for us!!!!


  2. Went there the other day, food was amazing, real effort put into every aspect of the dish! Ollie tells me he’s building a new lounge deck for cocktails and spanish tapas. Cant wait Ill be there!
