“stay off”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2009

The olive is one of the expatriates' favorites in Mumbai. I cannot figure why unless you like snobbish atmosphere, poor service and poor wine.
As I arrived before the rest of the party, I decided to have a drink at the bar. They had a giant screen showing cricket.
I asked for a Kingfisher beer and the staff refused to serve it. They don't serve local beers at the bar "because it is not a local hangout type of bar". The giant screen showing cricket was probably set there to mislead people then...
I ordered a vodka-cranberry but apparently the concept of cocktail has not made it to this place. They gave me cranberry juice with some vodka on it. No ice, not shaking, no nothing.
At the table, we ordered a variety of food (going from vegeterian stuff to kebab and pizza).
The food was average.
Most of the wine menu was unavailabe and we ended up with a bad (australian?) white.
Eventually we were asked to promptly finish our deserts because it was time for the next service.
150€ for 4 with one bottle of wine.
oh, and I forgot: they are known not to accept kids...

Olive has a superb ambience but wants more flavourful food and thoughtful service. Would love to see yummy dishes.
