Fig & Olive is a restaurant serving Mediterranean and European dishes, so most of their dishes will look rather familiar Western cuisine, but not exactly the same. Their wide selection of menu includes various appetizers, steak, lamb, chicken or fish with pasta, sandwich and kebab etc. They also take pride in themselves using olive oil in the preparation of their food and is certified to be a healthy restaurant.
I liked the Figo Fish Oglio, which is fried fish fillet served with pasta. The fish is fresh and not too oily, and goes along well with the pasta. Perhaps one of the reasons I liked it is because it is more similar to our regular fish and chips that we know, nothing too special about it. The chicken pesto carbonara is not too bad as well, the portion is rather generous, and the potatoes is great when dipped with the carbonara sauce.
I also tried the maghribi chicken with olive rice, which is not really to my liking as I find it to a slightly weird. Just not my cup of tea. It is grilled chicken with Mediterranean style sauce, which is slightly sour and does not taste like your ordinary grilled chicken, so I would only recommend it to those who likes to try new things, but not for those with a traditional grilled chicken in mind when you are ordering it.
Currently, they are having a promotion during the afternoons, which is 1 - for - 1 main course, which is a really good deal. Choices you can choose from is the "gourmet galore" section which is actually their main course section. The two pictures I uploaded, "Figo Fish Oglio" and "Chicken Pesto Carbonara" are both from that section, which is quite worthwhile considering it is just about 16++ for 2 dishes.
The dinner set however, is not so worth is as it will be 20++ for a set, which includes a main course, a drink and a dessert. Big difference in price if compared with the afternoon 1 - for - 1, so not recommended to go for that.
My verdict: Its taste is so so, not fantastic but good enough to try, especially during the promotion hours.
