Fig & Olive

Mention Mediterranean food in the past and one would cringe at the thought of it. Not so in recent years, as restaurants with such theme have gradually spruced up all over the island in prime areas. It is no surprise whichever profession, be it the students, housewives or business executives, one would have been made aware of what Mediterranean food has to offer or at least, sampled some dishes.

 

  • The Vibe 
    The association with Mediterranean fare is apparent in the use of maroon and yellow – the signature colours for a typical Mediterranean restaurant. Dark brown wooden furnishings give the interior ambience a muted, yet casual feel to it. The use of glass panels brings on a spacious feel to the restaurant. Al fresco dining is available for diners who prefer to chill out at the external wooden platform overlooking the Sentosa Island .
  • The Food 
    The extensive menu is substantial for a wide array of diners with various diet or personal preferences. There are salads, soups, main courses and desserts for which diners can come by for any time of the day as the restaurant remains open throughout the day. The classic chicken BBQ pasta ($13.90) is reminiscent of the chicken chop we used to have back in our school days, served with a layer of skin atop. Marinated with Figo sauce, it is a simple hearty meal. Diners who are more adventurous can opt for the Fig Surprise ($10.90) consisting of chicken, roast beef with its assemble of vegetables, a melted slice of cheese and tomato paste. The chicken is crispy and tasty making it a dish for all ages. The grilled dory mushroom pasta ($19.90) was an interesting dish with the highlight – cubes of bright red and green capisicums sprinkled over the dory fish, enhancing the look of it and whetting our appetite. Somehow, it does bring on a smile when the dish is served.

    Not forgetting the sweet-toothed, the Bullwinkle chocolate drink ($5.60), as its name suggests, was to have a strong bull’s “punch” of decadent chocolate flavour. However, it was otherwise, and we ended up with a more milky taste rather than an overwhelming chocolate make-over. One sure drink which will not disappoint in its sweetness is the Figo Mocha ($6.30). Definitely not a drink for the faint-hearted diner! One has to visit the gymnasium for a few rounds of work out to lose those extra calories. The Brownie ($3.80) drenched in chocolate syrup and vanilla ice-cream will be a definite choice for those craving something addictive and heavy to end the meal with. Served warm with a spongy texture to it, the Brownie will be a delight for kids and teenagers.

  • The Service 
    There seems to be sufficient staff strength to manage Fig and Olive should there be many patrons then. Despite the numbers, the staffs were lacking in service standards as they were inattentive and seemingly engaged in their conversations with fellow colleagues. Be patient and if you are obvious enough, your signals will be noticed and assistance will be on the way.
