Yesterday I returned from my third trip to India. Every time my friends and I chose Mandrem as a place to stay. When we ask ourselves "why?" the answer is unanimous: Olive House. Three years ago I was so shocked by the level of service and the quality of food that I keep returning to India on and on.
The most outstanding about Olive House is the staff: Romy the host, and Deepak the chef. These guys have kept the business on a high level for many years. There is no problem they can't solve! You need a taxi to Mapusa in the afternoon and jumbo prawns for dinner later - they'll arrange everything at very reasonable prices and in no time.
As for the menu there is a great variety of oriental food but those who find Indian specialties a bit too extreme will be pleased by the vast choice of European dishes. There is an anonymous statistics provided by the clinic across the street: there was never a case when Olive House customer asked for medical help because of the food.
The music is always Indian but pretty easy-listening. The premises are constantly kept clean and shiny. An ocean and a great "park view" are seen from the restaurant. There are two rooms for rent on the ground floor.
Thank you very much for the wonderful stay in India, Olive House!
