Luxe and good food

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

Trendy, live music and a great menu. All food was great but the salads were to die for! Great service, lively buzz.

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

My boyfriend and I went to the Olive Cafe the morning of a trek, and got exactly what we needed, a nice fulfilling fried breakfast. As we now live in a Muslim country, it was amazing to have bacon! They cooked all the different parts of the breakfast just as we wanted them, and all for a decent and fair... More

Very nice restaurant. Best breakfast I had in pokhara so far. The banana pancakes with syrup is absolutely wonderful. So are the homemade icecream waffles. Also the dinner menu is good. Love the hummus. Kitchen is clean. The people that works there are very friendly and always smiling.

Took a quick lunch there the other day. Good food, but the waitress was first stressing us to order, then she didn't seem to care or notice when we where ready. Never smiled or gave us a positive vibe, even though we tried our best to be polite costumers.

We visited the olive cafe a few times whilst in Pokhara because the food was tasty (both Western and Asian), they serve delicious coffee and the staff were incredibly friendly, especially the gentleman who served us on the balcony. Location and ambience just right.

I went there with a friend to see the Gypsy Jazz concert. When we first watched the menu, we were a little bit shocked about the prices... it was a bit higher than in other places in Pokhara, and they add 24 % tax and service fee to the final bill. The food sounds delicious though! My Veg Pad Thai,... More
