“A new restaurant in Pattaya”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

You feel yourself in a restaurant in Spain, only there it is hard to find such a clean restaurant with such a friendly service for that price. There is also an open kitchen, so you can see the cook's doing their jobs. Service is very friendly and professional. Prices are reasonable, not cheap, but the quality is very good. We had the house wine, and enjoyed it. For a starter I can recommend the appetizer plate, with olives, cheese, salami and prosciutto.
This restaurant also offers limited Thai food. There are also daily specialties, with reasonable prices. The place though is not easy to find, so you have to be a "local" to know where it is.

“Wow!!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Well what more can I say? Food was just fab, service excellent. Staff very friendly and efficient. No problem finding it although We do llive here so know our way around. Might be tricky for anyone not knowing the area though. Hubby had the steak which was just superbly cooked, my fish was scrummy and very satisfying. Will definitely be regulars there, but best to book online to make sure of a table as it gets very busy. They were turning people away whilst we were eating. Enjoy, we did!

“Lots of choices with authentic flavors”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Great little spot with international cuisine. The prices are good and the service was great. It is a bit off from the main road but if you have transport then this is a nice place for a snack. The decor gave you a real homely feeling.

“Consistently outstanding”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Living in Thailand, we visit Pattaya a few times a year on business and always make a point of eating at the Blue Olive which we find consistently outstanding.

Amazing menu choice, with additional specials from time-to-time. We eat plenty of Thai food, so it's a real treat for us to have an alternative choice, especially the Mediterranean style Ray cooks. But there's also something basic like excellent Canadian Angus steaks. Price wise there are more expensive dishes when quality imported ingredients are used, but your meal doesn't have to be expensive.

On our last 8 day stay we went to the Blue Olive 3 times, and still didn't tire of the menu. On our last visit Ray cooked us something special off menu which was fantastic. One special we had one time was a dish from Bavaria, where we visit often, so we know that his cooking followed the original Bavarian home style. The restaurant offers some very good value house wines too.

Apart from the food itself, the decor is top European quality, the bathrooms are spotless, and interesting to us who have been going there for maybe 2 years, is that Ray has managed to retain most of his friendly and efficient staff.

“Better and better!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

My first choice restaurant in Pattaya I visit every time I'm in Town. This trip I have been twice and both times were amazing - the beef loin with goats cheese was simply divine and the veal was out of this world.
Ray's hospitality, multi lingual skills and of course his menu makes it a pleasurable experience
