The Olive restaurant exudes a modern, arty design with a casual, welcoming feel in its 'olive' colours and warm lighting. Served in a trendy yet elegant ambience, the food features a myriad of textures, flavours and styles in a blend of classical recipes with contemporary ingredients and tastes. Among the choices on offer are prime cuts of meat, fresh seafood, crisp salads, delicious desserts, and fine wines. Juicy, succulent Wagyu Beef is the house specialty.

Attentive Service, Nice Food.

I ordered the Salmon and it was nicely cooked. The portion was big and thus we were so full that we had to... read more

Had the early bird set dinner everything is good except the soup (was too thick) and beef (overcooked). but the service was totally awesome. Will be back for the service.

The prices were very expensive and the quality of the food is far below average. The staff working there couldn't be too bothered about your complaints or request to refill your drinks. Just not my cuppa tea ...

First visit since 2012 when Chef Daniel left for pastures new. Not sure about the menu now, I used to like a regular steak here even though it was quite expensive, the menu restricts you now to Wagyu with prices in the stratosphere. It still has a great atmosphere and service is particularly good which is one of the reasons... More

Olive has been our favorite drinking place since year 2009. We will visit Olive at least twice a year. The selection of wine is good, you might find surprises that you might not find else where and if you are not sure, you can always seek the helpful staff's guide.

Coming to the olive for dinner has almost become a tradition for the family when visiting Genting and it is also the highlight of every visit. Great ambience and great food. What I look forward to when visiting the Olive is a good piece of steak. The... More

My friend and I chose the menu of the month, being the Malaysian International Gourmet Festival. I was delighted with the 7- course dinner. First came the amuse bouche which is so delicately presented. More like eating art! The waiters were generous with the assortment of bread served warm together with butter, black and green olive paste. The main course... More
