Reviewed February 14, 2013

loaction and setting..great..rooftop seating with view of the beach
food..very good and light...the owner extremely friendly and nice guy..
the only issue is for the price the portions were xtremely small..if the portions are to be improved the next time I visit would change my rating to five stars.

“Olive House in Mandrem - Lovely service and beautiful food”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is my forth stay in Mandrem, Goa and 90% of the nights I enjoy my evening meal at Olive House. Romy is so service minded and Deepaks food is yummy and safe. I can warmly recommend Olive House!

“Olive House - great place to be in goa”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Just back after spending a long weekend in Goa. Stayed at Olive House for 4 days and it was absolutely chill time with great Sea view, mouth watering delicacies and above all the people who run this place. The level of friendly service Romy (manager) & Deepak (chef) provide is hard to find elsewhere. The place is located near Mandrem beach and both the restaurant and rooms provide a great sea view. Quality and variety of food is unbelievable and utmost care is taken about the hygiene & cleanliness of the place. Also had a cooking class with the chef which was truly amazing. The boys are doing a great job. If you happen to be in Goa, visit to Olive House is highly recommended.

“An okay place for dinner”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

After having read all the other reviews I had high expectations of Olive House. I went there for breakfast, which is not really recommendable. Eggs and toast were all right, but sausages and bacon I didn't feel like eating. Dinner at night is okay, but nothing special at all. There are many other places in this area I would choose over this one, e.g. Meems or La Plage in Ashwem/Morjim. Staff was friendly and the atmosphere okay too, but again, not worth five stars.

“Simply the best in Mandrem”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

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!
