We went here for the RWI lunch. It was a nice Saturday afternoon. As you enter the pastel blue door, with an understated sign for the place, you would see the nice seating outdoor, as well as inside, servers in Hawaiian shirts, and light music playing. The Times awards’ adorn their wall, along with various other accolades for the restaurant and its chef. But don't mistake this for just a casual place. The crowd is always chic and the wine is always good at the Olive Beach.
We had a Prix fixe lunch menu, there were two of us, and our three course meal started off with a beef stew and a tuna tart, The beef stew had soft, succulent pieces of the meat, with soft baby onions and potatoes in a light brown soup. The tuna tart was very different in terms of the starter, being like a creamy quiche loaded with tuna and soft cream. Needless to say, the starters were amazing, in taste and presentation, So while they did take a while to come, the wait was worth it. We were also served some fresh bread on the table, which came with olives and their oil. The breads were warm, and replenished during the meal when we asked as well.
The main course didn't have a lot of options, so I went with the corn and potatoes croquette on a bed of salad, while my partner had mustard chicken. The chicken was a tiny bit hard, but tasted good. The presentation was very nice, something like a miniature Stonehenge! The corn and potato dish was okay in taste, not really outstanding, perhaps a little too dry. Like-able none the less.
For our dessert, we picked the chocolate parfait with nutella and butter, and the cake and chocolate sundae. The desserts were amazing in presentation and taste, not too sweet or too much chocolate! And just the right bit of whiskey in the parfait! The quantity of the menu was good and optimum as well. The service was a little slow, but that could be expected since it was Saturday afternoon, and a little full. I will recommend this place, especially for dates and a quiet, laid back time.
