Mahabaleshwar is pretty much a culinary wasteland. Mostly shacks in the marketplace serving Punjabi / Indian Chinese of very poor quality and a few places with Gujarati Thalis. In the midst of this, Olive Garden comes as a breath of fresh air! Authentic Italian food (most of it at least) although a little out of town. We had excellent Pizzas... More

Even though Pizza choices were limited to 2, there were far more choices on Pasta, Risotto and other dishes. Overall, you will not be disappointed with quality and taste of food.

Visited the Olive Garden with family. We were asked to sit on the outdoors of Pavilion as Olive has open air seating and it looked like about to rain. Pretty considerate of the staff and good things end here........ Pizzas were ok in taste and we made the mistake of ordering North Indian stuff from the Pavilion. Steward got the... More

Great Italian food (thin-crust pizza, garlic bread). This restaurant is a part of the Brightland Holiday Village, hence you can actually be seated in any of the 3-4 dining areas and order multi-cuisine. Olive garden is for Italian Fare, while you can also order Indian, Mughlai and international food in any of the dining areas. Great food, great service. Slightly... More

I landed at Brightland to enquire about their acclaimed Prana SPA but being a foodie ended up in Olive Garden.which undoubtedly serves the best Italian & continental cuisine in Mahabaleshwar. Olive Garden as the name suggest is built in a casual outdoor setting. The pizzas are cooked from a wood-fired oven. The pastas are authentic. OG has many other Items... More

Must say, we went with high expectation given I had read the review on TA before going there, but were still met with the quality and taste of itaian pizza they served. EXCELLENT! Given its in the Brightland, a 5star rated property, I didnt expect it to be cheap, but Pizza could have been 10" instead of 8" for the... More

pleasantly surprised to find such good italian food of such high standards in mahableshwar where usually one had to settle for a thali or some set menus. pizzas to match restaurants like trattoria(mumbai) or frangi panni(trident mumbai) . worth a visit

The food was excellent, very reasonably priced and the restaurant views overlooking the Mahabaleshwar valley were amazing. Great cocktails as well. I wasn't actually staying at the Brightland hotel where this restaurant is located (although wish i was!), but still visited the hotel in the evening for the food anyway. Highly recommend it.
