Almost two weeks ago, I was invited to try the new menu at Olivo’s, the restaurant located at the mezzanine level, in Radisson Blu Martinez, Ain El Mreisseh, Beirut.
I went there for lunch with my parents, we were warmly received by the restaurant’s manager, who guided us to our table and seated.
The restaurant’s manager was so friendly and helpful, he gave us an idea about the new menu and showed us the exquisite items from it.
After the crudité platter and the fresh bread basket that we had with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, that the manager prepared for us, we started with the appetizers.
We had at first the aubergine rolls, which are made of thin slices of aubergine wrapped around tomato puree, decorated with a bit of balsamic, cheese, rocket leaves and cherry tomatoes.
Then we had the duck and chicken patée served with jam.
Until the main dish was served, we enjoyed a lemon sorbée and enjoyed the calm music in the background.
And here they are, the mouthwatering prawn dish with rocket leaves and lemon, the steak with rocket leaves and cherry tomatoes and the fish filet dish. Every dish was perfectly done, to the point you don’t want it to end…
And to end it well, we tried the tiramisu, the strawberry tart and the chocolate fondant. The pictures can describe the taste better…
While enjoying our meals, Olivo’s Indian-British chef visited our table,and we could put a face behind the delicious food. To get to know him better, stay tuned for an interview with him on my blog!
Even though we tried new items and combinations, like the eggplant rolls and the duck/chicken patée, we enjoyed our food a lot. The ambiance of the restaurant is really nice , welcoming and friendly.
If you’re going out with your other half, friends or family, I highly recommend you to try Olivo’s restaurant.
