Fodor's Review

A German Colony landmark, Olive attracts a more mature crowd that seems to prefer the glass-enclosed, bilevel front yard to the Templar-period dining room and its arched windows and stronger acoustics. At this happy hunting ground for carnivores, beef and lamb kebabs are superb, as are the chicken livers. Vegetarians can keep starvation at bay with a hearty soup (try the tomato-based lentil, if available) or salad. Save room for a dessert pie or the delicious passion fruit sorbet. A full taster's menu is available by prior arrangement.
