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.

Great Food, Great Service, Great Ambience, Great Experience

Food was impeccable. Ordered a Saffron Pasta with King Prawn and a Sirloin Steak. Prices was at a higher end but was all worth it. Service was the best I have experienced throughout all restaurants in the whole of Genting Highlands. Will definitely return again the next time.

If you are looking for some decent Indian food around Kuala Lampur, this is probably the right place. The Olive has a very good service and ambience is spot on. The food served here is pretty decent. A liite spicy if you are not used to Indian food.

An award-winning fine dining outlet! You could definitely expect the best of all - food & beverage quality, ambience, services, etc. Simply loving the chocolate truffles! And well, though it might have be portrayed as a high-end premium food outlet, but never ever hinder yourself from approaching the outlet and have a look at their menu. You would then realize,...

Was having a short holiday at Genting Highlands and decided to eat at The Olive. To start off with, the bread was delicious. We ordered the poach egg salad with chicken and it was yummy! I ordered the Salmon and it was nicely cooked. The portion was big and thus we were so full that we had to skip the... More

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 ...
