Good selection of wines, nice ambient and excellent service

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

Nice dining experience with a polished up sequence of service that is beautifully executed. Live music in the lounge really helps to set the mood before and after

One of the best restaurants in the highlands, already my fourth visit since i only visit the highlands once a year. Service here is appropriate for a restaurant of its class, not beyond my expectations due to slight inconsistencies in attentiveness and friendliness, but good enough. The courses always start with their assortment of delicious, warm bread which we tend... More

If you like to relax, have a few drinks and some snacks this is THE place to be. Food is mediocre at best (I don't know who is the chef but he / she definitely does NOT know how to make pasta). The only snack I found to be worth a mention (yup, tried it all) is the Foie Gras.... More
