OLIVE BEACH, Bengaluru

Olive Beach Bengaluru embodies the spirit of the Olive brand and yet defines its own unique style, Capturing the essence and magic of a Mediterranean beachside. Located off the busy Richmond Road in the heart of India’s Silicon Valley, it is tastefully hidden behind curtains of greenery in a villa converted into a chic glamorous Mediterranean restaurant. To complete the perfect meal, Olive Beach's exclusive wine list of hand picked international and indigenous wines complements the innovative cuisine and provides an elegant atmosphere for a relaxed evening.

Ask For!
The new menu at Olive Beach is a truly gourmet experience. Fresh flavors and herbs unite with ingredients sourced and skillfully prepared from gastronomic styles of the Mediterranean coastline. Various new appetizers, an exhaustive selection of both vegetarian and non vegetarian entrées, some interesting pastas and risottos and innovative signature desserts pepper Olive Beach’s new menu, catering to the forever evolving, discerning, Bengaluru palate that appreciates different and new tastes. While the essence of Olive remains, its translation in this new menu is indeed exceptional. Recommendations go for the “Pan-Seared Foie Gras”with a fig, prune and dry fruit chutney and a port reduction. Another must try is the “ Tea Smoked Duck Breast” - sliced Duck Magret served on pressed pastry, with smoky eggplant, wild mushroom duxelle, with a delicious pepper and pineapple marmalade. Vegetarians may order a “Three Cheese Flan” – baked with brie, parmesan and ricotta served with a warm grape and Aragula salad and a hint of sweet basil oil and tomato pesto. Indulge in an “Imam Bayild” - the reinterpretation of a Turkish classic which comprises baked baby eggplants, stuffed with stewed vegetables, tomatoes and feta served with a prune and nut rice, and yoghurt dill and cucumber sauce. “Pan Roasted John Dory” served with tossed vegetables and a Meyer lemon and mustard sauce and parsley puree or the “Slightly Smoked Maple Glazed Salmon” served with organic jasmine rice, white asparagus, haricot beans and a fragrant coconut béarnaise, are must tries for those who love fish. The intricate Lemon Four Ways with lemon custard, lemon sugar, lemon cake with praline ice cream and lemon tuille is definitely worth a try. The Olive Beach Larder offers one of the finest selections of cheese and meats that can be sampled through platters, and also purchased by weight for take away.
