A nice little restaurant away from the crowds. You can eat inside of outside. All of our dishes were quite good and the service was just excellent. Not a fan of Indian food so this was a great choice. Recommend and would return if we go back to Delhi.

Been going to Olive for several years. Food is good but can be better but the service is getting sloppy. The place can get very noisy if there is a ladies kitty party get together.

I have been a regular at this place for last few years.Never been disappointed on account of food but lately with every visit there is noticeable deterioration in service and a lack of warmth in service staff probably because of new staff each time.Usual complementary sipful of soup on arrival,then a scoop of sorbet in between mains and starter has...

The outside patio area in back of restaurant is great. The salad and stone fired pizza were a great treat and unexpected in India. Drinks were very good quality and the service was excellent.

You walk in and love this place - eating outside has a quiet charm, and sophistication about it. It makes you feel good. Alas, it's slightly let down by the food. Our 'amuse bouche' ( their term, not mine), was ok, my twice baked souffle was over-complicated by additions, and lacked intensity. It wasn't bad, just not very good. Black... More

Was a wonderful experience. Like walking into a restaurant in the Med! The all day brunch option on a saturday or sunday (lost track of days!) was a fab experience. One price with an array of amazing foods on the BBQ or to be cooked to order, with free flowing drinks all afternoon. Great live band and lovely courtyard setting.... More

During our short stay in Delhi we went twice to the Olive and both times we had been very happy about the good service, the excellent food and even the choice of wine. We liked very much the different kind of food they serve. Congratulations!

loved everything about it from the grand old banyan shade and space outside to the cosy mediterranean feel inside, the innovative presentation of appetisers and attention to little detail that makes a restaurant special not to mention the terrific food
