The Fat Olive Country Restaurant
provides an ideal family entertainment destination suitable for all occasions. Situated on the banks of a natural irrigation dam with expansive views of the distant Magaliesberg Mountains, the restaurant lends itself to enjoying the outdoors, birdlife and the resident wildlife. It is common to see the Zebra family wonder up in the evening for drink or watch the blesbok herd thunder past. With over 100 species of birds recorded on the property, you are sure to spot a heron, king fisher or even a fish eagle from your table.
The extensive property is ideal for children to explore, climb trees and run around the fields. Plenty of jungle gyms and jumping castles are provided free of charge as well as access to the animal farmyard featuring a pair of Dexter Cows, miniature ponies, potbelly pigs, sheep, goats, guinea pigs, rabbits and chickens. During summer months you can bring your cosies to cool down on the water slides or take a canoe ride on the dam.
Saturdays and Sundays we have live music on the deck which further enhances the celebratory experience of the location. After lunch you are welcome to wonder over to the beach bar to enjoy a drink and even dance on the tables if the mood takes you. Bookings on Saturdays and Sundays is essential.
From the N3 or N14, take the Malibongwe Drive off ramp towards Lanseria / Renosterspruit which becomes the R512 Pelindaba Road. Approximately 3.5km past the Lanseria Airport turnoff you will see the signs for Stornoway Lodge and The Fat Olive, directly opposite the Home of the Chicken Pie.
