A little sun-kissed, a little wind-blown, and decidedly lazy, Olive Goa is the perfect spot to sunbathe, feast, and stargaze. Stroll down to the beach for a quick dip, catch up with some friends over drinks, stop by for a romantic date, or watch the sun dip into the sea while the kitchen puts together a delicious gourmet cafe meal, inspired by local produce, fresh seafood, and the land. Olive’s been featured on the Condé Nast Traveller Hot List in its first year. Olive serves up a delicious gourmet Mediterranean cafe menu using local ingredients, fresh seafood and inspiration from the land, complimented with an array of fresh cocktails. They bring their popular Thursday nights to Goa (like the iconic Olive Bar & Kitchen, Mumbai), along with picture perfect sundowners & live Jazz every Wednesdays.

THE PLACE

Perched in a corner of a cliff overlooking the Vagator Beach, Olive settles into its enchanting space under the sun, overlooking the Arabian Sea.

Decked with tall palms, lush greenery and white wicker furniture, the restaurant offers an al-fresco all-day dining experience. The bar sits charmingly under a blue tiled roof.

A little sun-kissed, a little windblown and decidedly lazy, Olive settles into its gorgeous space under the sun. 
 

THE FOOD

Inspired by local produce, fresh seafood, and the Goan terrain, Chef Manu Chandra and Chef Evan Gwynne have created a unique Mediterranean menu exclusively for this beachside location. The restaurant also offers a live seafood counter, serving up only the freshest catch, before your eyes. The signature café menu is chic, delicate and delectable while offering an all-day dining experience.  Olive Goa won the Times Food Award for Best Mediterranean Food in Goa.

THE STORY

The multi-award winning Olive Bar and Kitchen Pvt Ltd., with prominent locations in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore owns and manages the Goa property as well, however, under the franchise taken by the APRA Motels.  

“After 17 years of hesitating to bring Olive to Goa, since we were certain we wanted the perfect spot for it, we are now all set in Vagator, beautifully perched atop a cliff with a view. Olive is synonymous with Goa in many ways and we had to make the two meet” shares AD Singh, founder & MD of the Olive Group of restaurants.
