“Amazing food and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The food was amazing, be sure you make a reservation. This is not a discount resturant but it was worth every cent.

“Nice restaurant choice in Nassau, worth the drive from downtown, Atlantis”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Olives Meza is trying very hard to be a top tier restaurant on New Providence Island. There are a few great contenders like Matisse and Graycliff and Nobu, et. Al. Thankfully this Cable Beach offering is up to the task.

First, be careful as the TripAdvisor map for this store on Cable Beach may indicate a downtown location on Bay Street just east of Charlotte. Wrong! Look for Olives Meza just west of Capriccio and Many's on Cable Beach.

It's worth the find. Inside this strip center location is a cool, upscale ambiance with house music and walls of stone. That can make for a loud experience, but the rest of the menu and service should not disappoint.

The bar is prominent in the open and interestingly lit dining space. Drinks come out properly prepared - no surprises. Service is attentive and polite, with wait staff in all black and eager to please.

Appetizers are interesting with the flaming cheese seemingly going to every table - excitingly so. Once the fire is out you'll find a tasty bit of cheese accompanied by some quartered pita bread for dipping. Mmmm.

Italian and Greek Sausages brings out two large links, halved and wonderfully plated. I love me some good sausage.

Tonite M had a tasty Lamb T-bone, properly cooked as ordered, topped with a feta sauce, accompanied by a filo dough filled with chopped, season lamb. Outstanding says the beautiful foodie, M.

I had a special of seared scallops over truffled risotto. It was very good, but had slivers of citrus on top that somewhat overpowered the delicate scallop. So great, preparation that was a little unbalanced in flavor. Note that I would order the dish again in a heartbeat.

We ordered an expresso gelato and cheesecake. The cheesecake was good - nothing exceptional - but the gelato was deep in flavor, grainy and exciting in texture, perhaps the highlight of the meal. It must be noted that if you see my reviews here on TripAdvisor or on Yelp you will find that I am totally not a dessert foodie. Oddly enough this espresso gelato caught my attention. It is that good.

Entree prices average about $32, not cheap but average for an upscale place in Nassau.

Withe the above information in hand you won't be disappointed with your experience at Olives Meza. Really good service and food, off the beaten path on West Bay St. in Cable Beach. One of the top foodie destinations in Nassau. Enjoy!

“The best dinner in Nassau!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This was the best meal we had on our entire weeks stay! From the appetizers of flaming cheese and the trio of dips to the entrees of fresh grilled fish, lamb shanks, Greek salad, Caesar salad and lamb burgers, it was all excellent! I wish we would have eaten here the first night, so we could have enjoyed it again before we left.
