Olivier, Grand Indonesia Mall, Central Jakarta

Another Fusion Restaurant just open in town. Olivier at Grand Indonesia Mall has been run about couple months. From it name, it is obviously Western style restaurant, but in fact they also serve variant of Asian cuisines. 

From the outside, european typical elements is really strong wooden with glass door, dark color either brown or dark brown, we may see a pastry displayed when come inside restaurant, and then we would approach the receptionist counter after pass through it. At dinner time, this place is quiet crowded at the bar, for note in this restaurant we would see non-smoking area is close with the window and side door, for smoking are would right inside the restaurant since they also has a bar corner.

Since i am prefer non-smoking area, so waitress lend us table just right next to the window where we could see outside of the streets, building of Grand Indonesia Mall. Before start our main dish, welcoming bread is come out first. what is bit funny is, waiter is asking "do we order one or two welcoming bread". Actually we didn't order any of it, thought it is for free. :-) So it is free, probably waiter bit confused how many bread do we need.


For note, maybe it is our culture while serving appetizer, main course or even dessert in a same time. What i expected, it should be served literally one by one. So Welcoming bread was came out along with the Spaghetti, quiet huge bread, at least we need 10-15 mins to finished it. While that, i supposed spaghetti would be cold then. Nevermind, just go with it. 

Bread is fine, what rarely you found in town is butter mixed with cut of chili. Main taste is butter with spicy. Done and start with the spaghetti.


It is Spaghetti with Prawn, Spicy Tomato Sauce and Sambal Terasi Paste. It does Red color indeed! looks spicy obviously. It is very tasty, spaghetti has been blended well with the terasi paste. and not too spicy which is well done. what i ordered next is Dory Meruniere A La Grenobloise, Sauteed French Beans and Cherry Tomato.


It looks stunning, nice color of dory. It is nice seasoning, good texture along with olive. Each bites has pleasure and French beans is crunchy, nice bite and great seasoning as well. I absolutely love this one.


So overall this restaurant has nice concept, European-Asian Fushion, even though service not that good, but at least i could taste pleasure of the dishes.
