Hubby's 4th Auntie offered to take us out for fine dining as belated Birthday celebration for both of us since our birthday was in end Aug 09. She asked us to choose the venue.
Hubby chose The Olive located at the Lobby Floor of Genting Hotel. This restaurant won the Restaurant of the Year for Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards 2005-2006. The last few times that we were in Genting the restaurant was closed as the only lunch that the restaurant is open is on Sunday. On any other days the restaurant is open for dinner only.
The colour theme for the restaurant is "olive" and green with warm lighting.
Trendy, cosy, yet modern and elegant ambiance.
The Restaurant serves Continental cuisine ie meat, seafood, salads, pizzas, delicious desserts, fine wines and more.
I decided to choose "Olive's Experience" 3 courses menu (RM 88.00++) consisted of Fragrant wild Mushroom Soup, Pizza Margherita and "The Durian" dessert.
Our appetizer ... varieties of bread, one of it was in "Olive" shape, Season Platter (RM48++), Mushroom Salad (RM26++), Fragrant wild Mushroom Soup flavored with Fresh Herbs & Cep Powder (from the set that I ordered), etc
Hubby ordered Angus Rib Eye (RM95.00++).
4th Auntie ordered Roasted Chilean Sea bass with Ponzu Sauce set on bed Asparagus & Ragout of Mushrooms (RM60.00++).
Hubby's choice of dessert, Cream Brulee (RM24++) ... sourish and tanga taste.
Chocolate Lava Cake set on Dark Pitted Cherries & compliment with Ice Orange Soufflé (RM22.00++). Auntie only managed to finish half of it. I love hot chocolate cake with ice-cream and obviously, I cleared the other half of this dessert.
The Durian, presented in such a nice, tempting way.
Throughout the lunch, inclusive of our table, there were only 2 tables of customers in the restaurant.
