Those who come to sample our delicious fare and locally brewed beer and wine are constantly dazzled by the best-kept secret in Wellington, our courtyard.
The glorious olive tree in our curiously tropical courtyard has, for over 20 years, offered the shade of its branches in many a peace offering, over a long black or glass of rosé. Today Olive offers breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as everything in between.
Proprietors, Head chef Jamie Morgan and brothers Ferdi and Carlo Petagna, first came into contact in 2008 at Fratelli on Blair Street, which the brothers had just opened. A few years later the boys reunited to try their hand at something a bit different, which they found in Olive. With prominent careers in the Wellington and Australian hospitality industries their combined experience and friendship is reflected in the unique and friendly atmosphere at Olive.

We'd heard... Olive is a local institution which comes alive after dark on lively Cuba Street, a cosy retreat on a wintry night. A couple of nights a week, the cafe has specials - a three course menu deal ($40) on Tuesday, and cheap desserts on Wednesday.
