Happening at Olivia
Innermost in Gandsfjorden, at the heart of Sandnes centrum is our so far biggest restaurant – Olivia Vågen. The restaurant will extend over two floors with a large roof terrace that will be an amazing place to enjoy food, drinks and views over the city. Inside we have a large bar, several chambre séparée to private parties and of course a lot of space to hungry guests.
Each Olivia-restaurant is inspired by different Italian cities, and Olivia Ramsalt is inspired by the port city Sorrento. Seafood is in focus, which you will discover in the menu.
