I mentioned to a friend that we were going out for a posh dinner (for us!) Posh as in food rather than surroundings - delicious, "true cheffy" type food - a birthday treat. We were not disappointed. Between us, our menu was scallops, pumpkin dumplings, duck breast, groper, sticky date pudding and Whittakers 72% dark chocolate ganache. Looks simple written down but taste and presentation were excellent. I would go over the word limit if I described all the little extra bits of creativity and colour on the plate. We left nothing! It was an intimate, busy but quiet atmosphere - perfect! Thank you.

This was our second time dining at Oli & Mi and it didn't disappoint.
Cannot fault this restaurant. The food is exceptional with great combinations and flavours. Presentation is just amazing. They say you eat with your eyes and this is definitely the case.
Four of us had the Share Platter which is delicious way of tasting the beautiful entrees.
Service is very friendly and genuine.
Will definitely be back.

This is the 2nd time we have dined at this Restaurant, first time wasn't First Table but so glad that Oli & Mi have gone on to FT and at a good time to dine of 6pm. We were celebrating a birthday and there were 4 of us so the savings on the $$ was excellent. We shared two platters which gives you a taste of each of the entree's available, really good idea. We all had different mains and everyone was satisfied with their choice. Three of us chose dessert and each had a different choice and everyone was happy. The front of house service can not be faulted, very friendly and the young lady who bought our meals explained what she was serving. Would definitely dine here again.

Cost, warm & inviting. Excellent service, food was delicious! Recommend the shared starter platter for two. We then had mains & shared sides of potatoes & vegetables but really didn't need them as mains were large. Very generous portions of sides so definitely more than enough to share. Couldn't fit in dessert which sounded Devine so will be back again!

Our booking was for 5:30 Saturday night, and within an hour of our booking the restaurant had no spare seats. The service when we arrived was excellent, but as the restaurant filled up the level of service dropped, and it took 45 minutes for dessert to be served from when we ordered it. Nobody came to ask if we needed another round of drinks or anything, and there was no mention when we ordered that it would take so long. Presumably this would be better when they were not quite so full, but either extra staff for busy nights or a better methodology for pre-preparing food so it is ready to get quicker would be good. However, the food was excellent. Between us we tried the duck, the chicken and the rib eye steak and they were all fantastic. For dessert we had sticky date (fantastic), crème brulee (fantastic)and the chocolate fondant (yummy, just a touch too dry), but the accompanying sorbets etc were delicious.

This is a restaurant that you can go to for drinks and tapas or a full meal as you prefer. We are fans or tapas and shared plates for entree - all competently prepared and presented. Our table tried a selection of the mains - beef, duck and port, and everyone was complimentary. The food was imaginatively presented and the sides of potatoes and greens were generous in proportion. There is a limited wine list but the Goose Bay Point Noir we selected was excellent. Overall a very good experience and, based on other reviews a reliable choice.

We had the most wonderful dinner at Oli & Mi on 20th April! The restaurant is warm and welcoming and the staff friendly and inviting. The food is simply outstanding! We highly recommend their Tasting Platter for 2 as it was not only a work of art to admire - the food was delicious! We enjoyed the steak and duck mains and the portions were very well sized so you were not hungry afterwards! If you want a most enjoyable dining experience with the most awesome food and lovely staff - we highly recommend Oli & Mi!

What an awesome experience! Right from the moment we entered the door we were impressed by the very professional and hospitable staff. We were seated immediately and then informed about the menu and drinks order taken. Timing was always impeccable to check how we were as well as the presentation of the food.
Each dish was extremely exquisite and tasted divine. Nothing bad to say about our experience and we will definitely be back!

From beginning to end, this dining experience was magical. The beautiful old building to the exceptional service, and we haven't even touched on the food and wine yet. The food... wow, the food! every bite was eye rolling, mouthwatering goodness which was topped off by a very tasty wine. Thank you once again Oli and Me for another unforgetable meal.

A great dining experience at Oli and Mi Kitchen. Lovely atmosphere in the dining room and the staff were really friendly and knew the menu well. The food was well presented, cooked to perfection and delicious! Peter's wine knowledge is encyclopaedic - he recommended some great "outside of the box" wine matches for our main courses. We will definitely be back again!

Oil & Mi is a wee gem. Amazing food and great service. If you’re having three courses make sure you allow a couple of hours, everything is cooked from scratch and takes a bit of time. In saying that when you’re at the table with good company who cares. Will definitely be visiting again and again.

My first table restaurant booking and what an excellent start to this awesome service!

I have been a local in Petone for a little over a year now and had always walked past Oli & Mi several times a day, and it is always super busy, got to be a good sign right!? I booked a table for two through first table for a special one-year anniversary. Upon arrival we were greeted by the host in a very welcoming manner and quickly seated by the helpful waitress.

We ordered sparkling water to start from the waitress and then the host came and explained the menu to us in great detail which was nice and gave us the knowledge to make an informed choice on what we decided upon for starter and main. As a starter we got the Oli and Mi tasting platter which gave us a taste of everything on their tapas menu, a wise choice to try everything, so many tasty treats all on one plate.

After our tapas it was a reasonable period of time in-between our mains arriving, it was crispy pork belly for me, and five spice duck breast for my partner. The mains continued to build upon the amazing treats our taste buds had just sampled on the tapas platter.

Everything was cooked to perfection, the knowledge of staff on the menu and product and how specific items were prepared was just phenomenal. As an example, I had what looked like a semi hard round orange lolly on my plate, when I asked what it was, it was explained to me that it was a cured egg yolk, and the host went into detail on how they are prepared.

Thanks Oli & Mi for helping me and my partner celebrate a special occasion and thanks to first table for giving us the opportunity to experience a nicer restaurant at a discounted price. We will be going back to Oli & Mi and most definitely using first place again :)
