We wanted to try local fusion foods and this was the place. Olive garden offered Italian and Indian foods, and they tasted good. The size of pizza was over 10 inches! Almost all customers (so did we) ordered Indian buns and they were incredibly good. (Be reminded those Indian buns were not listed on menu) Price was reasonable but it... More

The service is really poor for a restaurant this big. The management can do better by investing on quality which is being compromised. The food is ok.

We spent several hours here waiting for our speedboat. Peaceful courtyard, friendly staff and good snacks. Made to feel welcome, despite clearly being bedraggled and hot from a very long journey. Will return one day!

I was not impressed by Olive Garden. The ambiance was not like I expected and heard from others. Pretty big place and overpriced, food quality was ok, but for that price I ate 2 pizzas at Pizza Mia and they were just as good! Staff was nice and smiley!

Olive Garden is to me a wanna be Italian restaurant. Yes they do have your usual pasta and pizza. But something is always missing when you take the first bite of any of their dishes. Anyhow, this joint is just opposite of Seagull café. If the food here does not meet your expectations, just shake the dust off your slippers... More

Well, pizza is not great and place looks dirty and cheap. There are many things like this in Male, but maybe it is worth to make a nice & clean set up for customers?
