Fine dining may not be my turf but once in a while, some luxury makes you indulge in that welcoming atmosphere that The Olive has. I like the politeness of the staffs who seat us at the lounge while waiting for our table set, and that warm welcome they extend to us when they invite us to the table well... More

The restaurant is cost yet you will feel a sense of grandeur to it as the arrangements of the f&f in it somehow give you a sense of serenity and tranquility that you will only experience in high end eateries. The selection of wine and liquor in this restaurant is commendable as it will cater to most of the customers... More

Make no mistakes – this is an Italian fine dining restaurant, so you should expect the prices to be in the premium bracket. As it is a fine dining restaurant, there is a dress code to be adhered to, as I came to discovered when I was asked to remove my cap as I entered the restaurant. The restaurant interior... More

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,...
