A hidden sanctuary


Any other lady like myself would agree that a little romance is needed once in a while and when it’s topped with a good meal it is even better.
Visiting The Olive Restaurant at 22 Promenaden Road, in Klein Windhoek, all these desires were captured. The Olive Restaurant is within a walking distance from the Central Business District (CBD) and for those who have the luxury of driving it is only a two minute stretch.
The intimate place in a tranquil corner of Windhoek personifies the very epitome of chic comfort.
 The exotic place also offers hotel facilities.
The Olive Restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. T he location of the place is also well perfected  by the scenic view of  the mountains leafy suburb of Windhoek.
The interior décor is earthy and welcoming; I loved the wooden floors that combine beautifully with the white furniture. It has a contemporary and stylish touch with a warm heart perfected by natural furnishings and an eco-friendly approach.
Although seemingly slow, customers still get personalised and cultured service.  Fresh cuisines are on offer and guests can choose to consume a continental buffet breakfast and lunch and dinner can be selected from their ‘a la carte’ menu. To complement meals there’s a wide array of drinks and a selection wines to choose from.
The first time I visited the Olive Restaurant, I went had  a quick breakfast meeting with one of my  friends and I was not disappointed.  In fact breakfast was an excellent choice, the fruits, bread cheese and meat came on a three tier stand which was quite impressive.
I had to take a bit from the food on the three tier stand; I had a slice of bread, with a bit of fruit on a side plate, cheese and scrambled eggs with bacon.
 I desired my meal and when I eventually savoured it with a glass of fresh orange juice, it was absolutely delicious.
The a la carte menu is however limited to a dozen entrees and appetizers but the food is unique; imagine a salad with greens, beets, caramelized nuts and cheese put before you? Certain foods have French and Italian names but with a Namibian flavour.
 It is a sanctuary that many seem to not have knowledge of.
