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.
