great place to eat or have a drink

This was one of the few places open during the earthquake period. Great quality food and drinks, the Sangria was delicious with very friendly staff

Olive... what can I say? I hate probably half the meals I had in Pokhara here. Nice light, ambience, friendly, happy staff and a varied menu. Try the breakfast pitta and kombucha, so good!

This cafe appears to be sister to Moondance. The food is good but the cafe itself isn't that clean and a few bad smells waft around. The staff are friendly (like the whole of Nepal) but not attentive. There are other better options around.

We were just looking for a place to sit down & enjoy a good cup of coffee & ice cream for my wife. It was such a nice place, with friendly staff - and the food we saw looked good!! So we went back for dinner later. We sat on the second floor overlooking the street & enjoyed a very... More

A cute place in pokhara. The food was good, maybe a bit to much fat sauces but it depands on what you order. Good service and fine prices. Really nice staff! Also nice to hang out on the balcony and play a game.

After a long busride from Chitwan to Pokhara, we needed a light dinner. The restaurant was nice and the staff very kind. We had the greek salade and the naan with hummus. It was delicious.

After a few disappointing meals in Nepal, dining at Olive was a great treat! Our group ordered a wide variety of dishes (Thai, Mexican, seafood, Italian, Indian) and everyone seemed pleased with their food. We liked the place so much we returned with the rest of our crowd that same evening! The staff are attentive and able to make amendments... More

This Lakeside restaurant has a nice ambience with a street view. The pitcher of Sangria was decent, and the hot rum punch was well liked by my SO. The food was very good - the cheese & spinach naan is to die for! We liked the mexican salsa with tortilla chips and the paneer and vegetable kebab. If you’re looking... More
