Chronicles of a Happy Married Life

Olives Restaurant – Thunderbird Resorts Rizal

We are honored to be invited to the Grand opening of Thunderbird Resorts’ Tuscan themed restaurant last Friday.
This is one of the changes that they have made to the already exquisite hotel and resort that we fell in love with almost two years ago.
The blessing and ribbon cutting was graced by Thunderbird’s executives which was followed by a dragon dance. Champagne and red wine were overflowing. A reminder that everything is Italian inspired.










The ambiance.


Stepping into the restaurant made us feel that we’re in a different world.




Its elegance is perfect for dinner dates, special occasions or somewhere you can relax and enjoy some good food and wine over the weekend. Olives Restaurant is not your ordinary Italian restaurant since the menu was created by an Italian Executive Chef. So, trust us when we say that they serve only authentic dishes.


Their color motif reminded us of our wedding…black and white with red accents! Having Laguna de Bay or a golf course as  back drop is just undeniably awesome.






The food.


Since we are suckers for pasta whether it’s red or white, we skipped the risotto rice and tasted every viand that they served along with the pasta. Our favorite is their pink salmon. Sorry, but we forgot the exact name of each dish. The dessert table is mouthwatering and Chef Michael’s tiramisu is the best we’ve ever tried!
The salad bar was also a hit.








The  star of the day is their freshly baked Pizza. Olives restaurant brags about their pizza having the thinnest crust and the freshest ingredients which by the way is prepared and cooked in front of their guests. It was superb! You can eat the traditional way or roll it! Eat whichever way you prefer…just don’t miss the chance to taste it.

Well, if you wanted to be treated like VIP’s…then Olives restaurant is the one for you. Need we say more?

Happy weekend!
