Olive is the restaurant we visited at least once a month and it could be more than 2 times a week if my son is back to HK. For lunch, they are serving the very reasonable priced (around HKD130) set lunch with my beloved coffee. For dinner, although the price range are 2-3 times higher than lunch, but it still... More

Came here with a group of friends (at least 10 of us) and the restaurant catered very well for all of us. The food was delicious - the falafels were out of this world. The wines were also very good. Only downside - the restaurant was quite busy so it took a little long for the food to arrive, but... More

We dropped into Olive for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. This restaurant offers Greek and Middle Eastern food. Although the lighting could perhaps be a little brighter at lunchtime, the ambience was very welcoming. We had a round table for four in the window overlooking Elgin Street. We all decided on the set menu, which offers good value for money.... More

Seemed a bit crazy to go to HK and have Greek/Middle Eastern food, but in fact this was one of the best lunches we had. Nice food, (fairly) authentic, well served, good wine list, reasonably priced. Definitely a good lunch stop if you are in the area and seeking something different. r

All restaurants have fixed time for taking last orders......so they should not welcome guests then!! (Reaching on time of last order) but this restaurant welcomed us & served us drinks & on ordering food we were informed that those dishes are not available......i believe its too rude on the part of management not to inform priorly about this to guests.

Overall, the food is good and I've been to Olive a few times. This evening however, during a private conversation between me and my friend over dinner, a waiter interrupted my conversation mid-sentence to ask about a personal item of mine that he noticed on the table. He said that he was curious about what that item was since he... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
