My family and I had an evening meal at The Blue Olive. The food was excellent. The staff were even better! I'd thoroughly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

We visited in January 2016 for dinner. This restaurant is on the first floor of Rodney Bay's large shopping Mall which, during the evening is gloomy and unwelcoming. We were the first diners to arrive and were initially impressed with the general décor but the lighting is very low and ruins any sort of ambience. The service was slow and... More

It gives me no great pleasure reading about how displeased you were dinning at my restaurant. I've always made best efforts in ensuring that the atmosphere created at Blue Olive is romantic and soothing. I am sorry you did not feel that way in regard to the atmosphere. I admit January was a rough month for the restaurant because there... More

Definite thumbs up here. The quality, the taste, the view and the staff make this place a worthwhile visit. It's tucked away but once inside it's a different world of wood and authentic furnishings. I had the conch fritters twice, amazing! For main I had snapper with the risotto amazing! Second visit soft Ribs as opposed to crunchy, again, amazing.... More

We visited Blue Olive on advice from a local and it was well worth it! Delicious food, water view tables, friendly staff. Only downside, and it wasn't even that big of a deal, is our Food came out rather quickly, from apps right to dinner. Food was so good, wanted to savor it all! Highly recommend this restaurant!

From the road this place looks a little sketchy but take the chance. You'll be glad you did. My wife and I shared a stuffed crab back which was very tasty. I had linguini carbanara and my wife had the beef lasagna. Definitely the lasagna was the better choice. It was delicious but a bit greasy. The linguini was good... More

Be sure to ask for a table on the water when making your reservation for a great view. We are a family of 5 and all ordered a different past dish and all were delicious. Only down side is make sure you have lots of time. The service was VERY slow.

This isn't a "must-go" but I would say it's the best of what we tried in Rodney Bay. Portions are enormous (my starter salad could have fed a family of 4) and the menu offers a range of dishes from pasta to baby-rack ribs via conch fritters. Sadly like many places nearby it seems driven to please a US market,... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We do try our best to please our customers, I am not going to dispute that. Our menu is a mixture of Italian and Caribbean creole cuisine. Our pastas are freshly made and always gives us great joy to make that note. It sets us apart in a meaningful way.... More

Will definitely go back here. Sort of Italian Caribbean. Tuna carpaccio was divine. Loved the snapper with cauliflower risotto. (Travelled a lot in Italy and this was the best risotto ever.) Beautiful setting overlooking the marina. Excellent service, wine reasonably priced .

Superb location, we had a table facing the water. The Jambalaya, Seafood Pasta, St Lucian Crab, Tuna Carpaccio and Goats Cheese and vanilla tomatoes were superb. The lasagne, could have been better as the pasta sheets were hard. We did point this out and the waitress said she would mention this to the chef. We will look forward to returning.
