Mediterranean cuisine seasoned with a touch of Asia

New culinary delights await you at the Oliv! Our popular Mediterranean dishes are joined by delicacies from the Asian cuisine. As we greatly appreciate both these culinary directions we would like to offer our guests the pleasure of finding this variety in one menu at the Oliv. Enjoyment, joie de vivre and a cosmopolitan, extraordinary restaurant concept – that’s what Oliv stands for. According to the motto “Asia lies on the Mediterranean”, Restaurant Oliv is ahead of the trend. Here we focus completely on high quality and convivial food in a casual atmosphere.

Together with the innovation in the kitchen, we have redesigned the interior of the restaurant with new tables, lighting and music. Everything has become more informal and cosy – a place where the passion for innovative cuisine is shared.

Our selection of wines is limited to provenances from classic European wine-growing regions and comes from producers who have made a name for themselves with their quest for quality. Their work results in what connoisseurs so appreciate: wines that stand out with their own character and the specific features of their grapes.

If you order a bottle of wine and do not want finish it you may take it home in our wine bag.

With pleasure we uncork and serve for CHF 35 your own bottle of wine that you brought along.
