Cafe Oliv

If you are looking for affordable and delicious western food, Café Oliv at 220 East Coast Road fits the bill! The prices are very reasonable; taste and quality of food is delightful. The only problem is finding a car park.  Dear and I went on a Sunday for lunch and spent 20 min looking for somewhere to park the car; we landed up parking about 7 min walk away from the café.

Décor and service was average but the main thing we came here for was to try the food, which had great reviews on a couple of food blogs I visited.

Salted egg calamari. I like anything that has salted egg in it, wish the calamari could have a more “qq” texture though….Garlic Pesto aglio olio spaghetti with scallops. The pasta was well flavored, scallops were huge and fresh.

Dory fish with salted egg chilli aglio olio spaghetti. This was the first time I came across pasta with salted egg, ordered it because it sounds interesting. It was very yummy too!

Verdict: Great food with inexpensive price tags but we are not keen on returning because of the headache we experienced trying to get a carpark.
