Address & other details: Olive Beach

Meal for 2: Rs. 2000 onwards (usually). Special pricing for Christmas Brunch.

Grilled fish & Grilled Jumbo Prawns
Grilled fish & Grilled Jumbo Prawns

Cuisine type: vegetarian & nonvegetarian

Short Description – in case u r in a hurry:

The advantage of having a huge spread is that people can choose what they like. This is what exactly the situation was like, at today’s Christmas brunch at Olive beach. However what is important is not just the width of the spread but also some winners & some ‘item numbers’/ show stoppers that people take home memories of. The good thing is Olive Beach had more than expected number of winners & of course they had ‘item numbers’ – Roasted suckling pig & Roasted Turkey.

Starters & cold cuts

The Restaurant specializes in Mediterranean cuisine & hence its interiors r done according to the theme. The guys serving us were quite efficient till the peak hours, after which they needed reminding on few occasions. The Chefs at the live counters were very interactive & I enjoyed little chats with few of them.
