Led by the passionate team of Manager Tim Lander and Head Chef Philile Kweyama, this home away from home is serenely situated in the Cascades Shopping Centre, Montrose.

With a picturesque view up into green forests from the ever popular deck area, it is no wonder that the Pietermaritzburg member of the Olive and Oil family has become such a beacon for tranquil afternoon lunches, relaxed business meetings and romantic evening indulgences.

The understated formality of the newly revamped dining area, along with the friendly and comfortable ambience created by Tim and his team, will ensure that your experience is one worthy of the Mediterranean flare for hospitality. Guests will always be greeted warmly by handpicked staff. After all, your family is our family.

Philile has extensive knowledge and experience when it comes to Mediterranean cuisine. With signature dishes such as Mediterranean Lamb Chops and Mediterranean Chicken, Philile is dedicated to ensuring that your taste buds are tantalised by comfortable food made exceptionally well.


The Mediterranean Chicken is a succulent offering comprised of tender grilled chicken breasts served on capellini pasta topped with a mouth-watering spring onion, tomato, white wine and cream sauce, finished with rocket, sundried tomatoes and fresh goats cheese.

The Lamb Loin Chops rank equally high on the delectable scale. Marinated and grilled to perfection, juicy lamb loins are stacked on herb infused couscous, tossed with Mediterranean veg, feta and rocket, finished with a delightful mint and mustard sauce.


Tim is equally proud to present his list of 5 star wines to all wine lovers and budding connoisseurs, and his dedicated team are on hand to expertly advise you on the perfect accompaniment to any of Philile’s culinary delights.

So whether spending your day downhill mountain biking, meeting colleagues for lunch or listening to the offerings of live bands on Sundays, Olive and Oil Pietermaritzburg will most certainly be the perfect part of a perfect day.
