About Olive Restaurant & Cafe

Petrus Steyn may be a small town in the relatively quiet province of the Free State but it certainly offers some lovely things to do and see for visitors to South Africa. It is situated between the metropolis of Johannesburg and Golden Gate near Lesotho, making it relatively central despite essentially being a small agricultural village.

The Olive Restaurant and Café is an old-fashioned South African style eatery, complete with lace tablecloths and colourful fresh flowers on the tables. The food is hearty and comforting and the décor is about creating a warm, homely environment. The menu includes popular favourites like traditional breakfasts, sandwiches, burgers and salads, as well as bobotie, pumpkin soup and sweet potato pie. Light meals include a pie with chips and gravy, fish and chips, or chicken strips.

By keeping the meals simple, diners get to enjoy excellent prices. Sunday lunches are ample and very well priced and midweek dinners are often accompanied by games of chess or poker. The Olive Restaurant is also a popular stop for travellers needing to perk up with a cup of hot coffee. It prides itself in its excellent milkshakes and its homemade ginger beer and lemonade.

Petrus Steyn is the hub of the greater farming area, which produces maize, wheat and sunflowers, and is an important beef and mutton producer. It is situated along the Riemland Route, together with Sasolburg, Arlington, Heilbron and Rosendal (amongst other small towns). The appeal of this route lies in its aesthetic magnificence.

The landscapes are breathtaking in their beauty and promise mile after mile of untainted South African countryside. The Riemland Wine Route is well worth a visit, and travellers will find that this is an interesting part of the country that is easy on the pocket.
