If you enter during the day, just before lunch, you are presented with rows of immaculate, military precision placed glass topped tables, clean, well polished floors you could eat your dinner off of, a huge front dining area covered by a massive pillar supported roof to provide much needed shade during hot, blazing afternoons. The decor is modern with with touches of African artwork spread along the walls. If you fancy eating close to the street there are a few tables to your left and right accompanied by large parasols.

The inside is more or less a continuation of the outside except for the well appointed, well stocked drinks bar to your left, air conditioning units throughout the ground floor and a children's mini play area double to your right.

The former manager, Mariam, hails from Olivia's well established sister restaurant called the Ali Baba Garden Restaurant which is run by her father. This is why you can be assured of professional service as a result of years of experience running a very busy establishment, particularly during the holiday season.

The Food (Lunch / Dinner):
The professional kitchen produces numerous, well prepared and presented international dishes. For starters try their scrumptious Mozzarella Sticks, Tomato Tart, Chicken Wings or the Shrimps Cocktail. Among their salads are Tuna, Caesar and Nicoise Salad.

If you fancy a little more before your main course try their Lebanese Hummus, Chili Potato, Baba Ghanouj, Kebab or succulent stuffed Vine Leaves.

Aside from some vegetarian dishes they also serve Chicken Fajita, Cordon Blue, Deep Fried Chicken Kiev Supreme,  Chinese Chicken, pizzas, pasta, seafood as well as some local Gambian dishes three of which are well tried favourites with tourists. These are are Beef Domoda (Peanut Butter Stew), Gambian Fish Benachin (Jollof Rice) and Chicken Yassa.
