Olsen review 5 Users say 4/5 Rate it

If James Bond lived in BA, Olsen would surely be his favourite haunt. Mind you, after spending time here, he'd probably be less fussed about his martinis, shaken not stirred, and more into his vodka. Olsen's 60-plus vodka shots on offer are the house speciality, but the cocktails are pretty darn good too. A favourite is Mint - a delectable concoction of Absolut vodka, passionfruit, and...you guessed it, mint. Alcohol aside, this uber-stylish restaurant serves up top Scandinavian cuisine, from the popular smørrebrød (comprising smoked salmon, pastrami, smoked cheese, langoustine and more), to delicious mains such as white salmon, served with barbecue lentils and an apple salad. As for decor, it couldn't get much cooler - admire the copper lamps and minimalist design inside, or chill on the decked outdoor lounge, surrounded by Naum Knop sculptures and ivy hanging stylishly down the wall.
