Superb place located on the beach road allowing an excellent sea view. The service is quite good, food is excellent and the place is not very crowded. Great place to go on a family outing, a date or business meeting. They keep changing their menu quite regularly introducing new products while keeping the old favorites.

Olive garden is the go to place for fast, affordable (if regularly ordering) and tasty tandoori pizza in Male'. The ground floor of the restaurant is a bit noisy and always crowded with coffee but the first floor is best if your looking for a relaxed time eating.

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!
