“Outstanding food at Olive's”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Dining out in Jasper is bit challenging iff you are new to the place...and it is not cheap. Sure there are the standard fast food places, but if you want to sit and enjoy a reasonably priced, but good meal, your choices are limited. That's why we were so surprised to find Olive's. It's got a great menu, great service (Kara is a wonderful server!) and it has a patio for outdoor dining. (Many restos in Jasper don't have a patio which amazed us.) We had the strawberry brie filo s a starter and shared the strawberry spinach salad and the bison chorizo lasagne with a lovely bottle of Pinot. I would definitely recommend Olive's and we will be back!

“Not your ordinary bistro food”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

The chef is not afraid to experiment here, and the menu was a plethora of new flavor fusions for me. There is a wide range of cuisines from which to choose. We thought we were going into an Italian restaurant, and it was way more than that. The service was attentive, but the ambiance is nothing special. I guess if you consider sitting outside in Jasper an event, you will be happy to know that outdoor seating is available here. The Thai green lentil soup was very good as was the Greek Salad. I had the chicken souvlaki, and the chicken was a bit dry. My husband had the scallops and the Poutine with truffle oil. Both were great.

“Service Supreme, Scenery Sensational, Scrumptious Servings!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Found Olive bistro on our first night in Jasper and what I find it was. We had an amazing evening, served by a very attentive and professional waitress. The food was absolutely sensational, the ambience great and the scenery around about spectacular. We were only in Jasper for two nights but had no hesitation in going back last evening.

“A lovely meal in Jasper”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Found this little gem last night and so glad we did. The atmosphere was good, the waitress welcoming and knowledgeable. The food was of a high standard, we had the delicious special of the day which was chicken stuffed with spinach and chorizo. For that night too the wine was 15% off house wine and 10% off all the others - deal! Would definitely recommend.
