This venue is not too far away from the resort that hosts it. Located inside "The Houstonian", the restaurant features traditional Southern American cuisine. I have seen much better wine lists, however, the most significant grapes are well represented. I am a seasoned red wine connoisseur and was... read more

We enjoyed a splendid breakfast will all the fixings. We were served by a friendly and attentive team of staff members. They checked to make sure we had everything we needed. Our breakfast mates came down late and yet the team continued to serve in a special way for our straggles. The food was on point. Especially the team loved... More

Dinner and breakfast at Olivette were FANTASTIC. The staff was amazing, my husband and I were celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary and Olivette's staff truly went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. We loved our drinks and our food (and the red rose, such a nice detail), my favorite ones were the cauliflower soup... More

Great lighter Italian dishes and others on the menu. Service was superb! Try the Pavlova for a filling light dessert.

I was eating there for a week and fillet of beef was my favourite one. However once waiter mixed up medium with rare, not sure if he understood everything in English.

I had the Asparagus Salad and New York strip which was grilled to a perfect medium rare and served over root vegetables. My companions had the Grilled Salmon and... More

For a hotel restaurant, the breakfast was amazing. I would consider the Olivette a destination place for breakfast. The service was fantastic as well.

I was at the Houstonian for a course so ate at the Olivetti several times. The food and service were impeccable. All niggles were due to cultural differences (me being from another country and all).

We had a great meal at this hotel. Must eat here if you stay at the Houstonian. Host was very friendly and helped us move to a bigger table 1/4 way through our meal as other people from our party decided to eat with us. They were all about us being comfortable even during a busy time for them.
