My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal out as a nice treat since having our baby. The staff were very pleasant, accommodating and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our tapas tasting platter starter with highlights being the harissa prawns and seared scallops; the duck main was fantastic also. Overall a nice setting and lovely evening!

The ambiance was relaxing as soon as you stepped into the building which reminded me of an old Bank or Insurance company office. The dining areas were not cluttered or garish.

The staff were attentive and aware of ensuring your dining experience would be memorable.

Finally, the cuisine and food were well presented and extremely satisfying to say the least.

Well done Oli & Mi

Wonderful dining experience at Oli & Mi, great location for parking, lovely décor, superb knowledgeable staff who were attentive but not 'hovering', the food delicious and beautifully presented. Loved the platter for two and the choc dessert is to die for!

Lovely meal for anniversary dinner with my partner. Food was very creative but not too strange. We could feel the effort that head chef put on. Well done team. Food and service both were excellent.

Wonderful service including a thorough and informative breakdown of the many dishes on offer and drinks were kept full.
We opted for the mixed tapas which started things off with a bang. All of the many morsels were delicious.

The duck main was exceptional and the freshness of the seafood in the Paella was as I had hoped.

“OLI & MI Tasting Platter for two” is a must. Really enjoy every bits of it!! The duck breast is the highlight of the evening. Do save some space for dessert - Whittaker’s 72% Dark Chocolate Fondant is the best !! Worth the wait!! The hot larva flow down after the first cut. Yummy!! ♥️♥️ Would definitely come back soon!!

I'd been looking forward to getting to try the food at Oli&Mi for ages and it definitely didn't disappoint! Fantastic warm service and explanation of the menu was a great start. We had the tasting platter to start, followed by the duck (which was slightly over the advertised pink, but still fabulous!) and the paella. The Creme Brule and chocolate fondant were delicious. I wanted to lick every plate. Well worth the trip out to Petone from Wellington. Beats many places there.

My husband and I have been to Oli & Mi many times. It is easily the best restaurant in Lower Hutt. There is only one dish on the menu I don’t like (wontonlini) but all others have been delicious. My favourites are the curry puffs, the caprese salad (best caprese I’ve ever had), the chocolate dessert, and I now have a new fave: the taste of beets. My husband says the steak is always hard, not soft like most places, but I am not sure what that means since I don’t eat meat. He says he always asks for medium rare but it always comes out more like medium. He said the duck fat roasted potatoes were amazing, though.

We love the decor of the place, as it is casual yet classy. Clearly lovingly and thoughtfully decorated. Atmosphere is great.

My only beefs with the place are: the chairs - they are not comfortable AT ALL, and when you have to sit there for two hours it’s not pleasant. And they desperately need a ceiling fan to circulate air around, as it can be warm and stuffy. And they don’t change up the menu often enough. Other than those things the resto is fab and a definite fave. After all, you can’t please everyone, and it’s still the best resto in the Hutt and one of the best in the entire Wellington region.

Again a most enjoyable dining experience. I find the staff simply outstanding and very friendly. They take time to ask how the meal was and are extremely interested in hearing your thoughts. As peter mentioned that is the only way to ensure that the standard of both service and meals do not drop. Looking forward to my next meal there.

In our view, Oli & Mi is the best restaurant in the whole Petone/Hutt Valley region! The service is amazing, right down to helping with the wine selections and menu choices, and the food has never failed to impress. The flavour combinations are well thought out and you can really tell the owners and staff care about the food and wine they serve. If you haven't been, try it. You will not be disappointed.

We enjoyed the awesome service from them to explain the menu , to ask whether everything is good , and some little stories about the food and restaurant.
The happy kitchen is also a very important thing to see , very nice chefs , warm plates when serving food , I think happy chefs must cook happy dishes.
The only thing is that we saw a string inside the pudding during eating. Still we can understand sometimes something happened. It’s a perfect experience except this.
Thank you all .

Excellent food and attentive service. Loved the fusion of flavours, freshly prepared food and presentation top notch.
Tapas were just delicious, curry puffs and buttermilk chicken dumplings.
For mains Crispy Pork Belly and my first experience trying cured egg yolk-interesting! Beef 4 ways was definitely a mans meal and ticked all the boxes right down to the roasted bone marrow.
The sticky date pudding was the bomb! First table and Oli & Mi 10 out of 10!

An absolutely wonderful dining experience - if not the best I've had in Wellington. The owner served us personally and I felt like we were welcomed into the restaurant as friends rather than guests. The food was wonderful both in taste and presentation and on par with some of the best I've had anywhere domestically or overseas, and without the often-condescending feeling of being in a high-scale restaurant. I will definitely be returning.

Usually I mainly care about the food, and in this case the food was outstanding. But the service was next level, the owner really made us feel at home and made a mains meal larger so all 3 of us could share it etc
