Despite its name, Oliviera does not serve dishes based on olive oil but offers a unique dining experience by blending special oils with the dishes. Each dish is served with a different kind of oil which is designed to bring out the distinctive flavors of the dish and is added only after the dish is cooked. This gives each dish a unique taste and makes it more healthy as well. The different oils are also available for sale at the restaurant's shop.
