Olive is an iconic restaurant in Mumbai that has been around for nearly 18 years. Yet it manages to constantly reinvent itself and stay not only relevant but popular. With its all-white Mediterranean themed decor that feels like you are dining on a beach in Greece instead of one of Bandra's many bylanes is a big attraction. The bigger appeal is Chef Rishim Sachdeva's fabulous menu featuring a medley of ingredients that cohesively work together to ensure stunning flavours. While the restaurant is incredibly romantic at night with all the candle lights it looks beautiful in the day and is perfect for a lazy Sunday Brunch. The restaurant is always buzzing with celebrities and popular faces so if you are lucky you might end up dining next to one. Prior booking is advisable, especially on the weekend.
We visited this restaurant as we were staying next door at Le Sutra hotel. The ambience is nice and you can tell that the restaurant itself is catered to a certain group of people. Despite this I have to say we we were hugely disappointed with the food. My wife ordered a vegetarian pizza which was poor and my pasta dish was also rather average. The bill was also rather pricey for in comparison to other local restaurants. We would not return but maybe we just chose the wrong food!
I have visited olive bristo bar with my boy friend and had a nice evening together. The ambiance is great with many drink and food options. Enjoyed and often we go here.
Nice venue lovely atmosphere, not cheap we happy to pay but the hot dishes served cold! We won’t come back for sure.
Spent a lazy Sunday brunch at Olive again and it can be relied on for good food and service. The setting is good with a relaxed ambiance and options to sit inside or outside are ok if you don't mind the midday heat. Recommended.
Mumbai - Olive Bar and Kitchen - 10.09.18 Date of Visit: 10.09.18 Time: 20:46 Review: I was expecting a lot given all the hype about this place and I know when calling and booking this was not supposed to be their best night but arriving just before 9pm and still having the place empty was a little but of a surprise but maybe the night in Mumbai starts late as when we were leaving there were many more tables taken. There are a number of issues with missing links and missing menu on the website so always best to just call the resturant. This resturant opened in 2008 and is supposed to be the place to be and meet the right people, saying that everyone there did look like they came out for a good night and the right people to know. Just no celebrities I am told whilst we were there. The menu is very European so very good maybe for a local crown but not really suitable for us given we are from London so have better places to eat which specialise in each of the various options. It is a long drive with traffic from Gateway of India so if you are looking for authentic food whilst you are in Mumbai I would come here during their bar evening and just have drinks and eat elsewhere. Dress Code: A smart place in an area where you are close knit with the hustle and bustle not to far around the corner. Everyone came dressed up and very smart. Booking Process: I had booked via a phone call from the UK which I thought would be best as Emails in Mumbai is usually hot or miss unless its a hotel. Location: 14, Union Park, Khai (w), Mumbai 400052 Cuisine Type: European / Mediterranean Decor & Lighting: I love the design and feel actually would be great to replicate this worldwide as it works really well. Heating and Cooling: There is a section indoors with AC but we sat outside and it was a very pleasant evening with nice temperature so very comfortable. Ambience & Acoustics: Service: Service was good and prompt but we did arrive without anyone else really there so that could be a factor. Drinks: Green Envy and Berry Boost both of which were made well. Desert: Date & Toffee Pudding - This was nice but nothing special that you can say you have to come here to try this you will be fine with or without it. Bill / Cost: 1,185 Rupees Conclusion: Looks like the place to be but pick your night carefully and don’t go too early, its far so be ready for an long drive home. This may be a better place to eat for the Mumbai crowd rather than international visitors as usually as an international traveller you would want more of a local speciality or a taste of the country so if you want a change however then worth a visit with vegetarian options available. But with Mumbai having so much to offer in terms of local cuisine then best to visit just for the party scene and eat prior. Rating: 5.0 out of 10.0
What makes a restaurant legendary? Its food? Or its ambience? We believe all of that. Great food served in even a more fantastic ambience can put the restaurant into the trendy charts overnight, but if the name of the restaurant is associated with a celebrity name then the success and popularity is assured. For Mumbai’s upper crust brunching at ‘Olive Bar & Kitchen’ at least once a week is a must. It’s a tradition that is followed by most of the page three crowd and celebs, dropping in sometimes more than once a week to savour the culinary delights of Olive Bar & Kitchen. The restaurant is the brainchild of famous restauranteur AD Singh, who with his well-travelled palate has given us his delightful take on global cuisine. The place is especially popular for its brunch.
The menu of Olive Bar & Kitchen travels all across the globe handpicking delicacies from Continental, Mediterranean, Italian, European and Lebanese regions. Dining here might take a toll on your wallet but trust us, it will be totally worth it. The food is comforting yet innovative. Open the menu with an array of appetizers such as, duo of crostini, seared polenta pancakes, roast chicken soup, beetroot pear and feta salad, rosemary baked brie, fried chicken & grains and baby lamb ribs. Take a full swing with the main course compiled of, 18-hour pork belly, Portuguese chicken, chorizo & asparagus pizza, creamy penne calabrese, grilled snapper, Belgian pork & rice, vegetable gratin, Mediterranean crock pot, prawns & guac sandwich, red velvet cupcake fried chicken, bun chicka wao wao burger and spiced bohemian rhapsody.
Their sweet course looks like a collection of delicious tit-bits. Chocolate orange mousse, cookie dough cheesecake, apple pie & star anise cream waffle, tiramisu with coffee ice-cream, kaffir lime semifreddo, dark chocolate fondant and aerated soufflé cheesecake. Meanwhile laze around in Olive Bar & Kitchen’s charming outdoor space with a bottle of red or a heady delicious cocktail. The restaurant is designed in a tranquil Mediterranean villa like manner with pale washed walls with a hint of blue at places. What may seem like an enchanting serene space in daytime transforms into something romantic and special as the evening falls. Every nook and corner lights up with numerous lanterns giving the dining area a quixotic exotic appeal. Sit inside if you are a creature of comfort.
