Description: Inspired in the trilogy of the Mediterranean diet (bread, wine and olive oil), O:liva is the mastered by the recognized chef Nicolas Gomez. The executive chef has created a menu that unites flavors, recipes and experiences from towns in the Mediterranean border such as Spain, France, Italy and Morocco. Olive Oil, known as the nectar of the Mediterranean, plays one of the main characters in the scene together with rich traditions and diverse landscapes. O:liva is presented as an art form that, like wine, has multiple varieties, flavors and its own trade secrets.

Cant say enough about this place. Amazing food and atmosphere. Wife fell in love with the goat cheese croquettes. Had the best 140z steak I have ever had. Middle of the road prices which was the big suprise. My only complaint was that we found this place our last night in PR. Would definitely have gone back again.

We ate here for our anniversary dinner on 6/19. The ambiance of this restaurant is very warm and romantic. My filet was perfectly prepared with heavenly side dishes , as was my boyfriends shank. Beautiful presentations of food!

This restaurant is tucked away on a side street and is part of the Olives boutique hotel. The restaurant is small and intimate and has rustic charm. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and every one of her recommendations was incredible. She even grew the daikon radishes that topped my entree. We loved everything we ate. Side note - someone at... More

This place is so cold. The hostess without a smile look at us like what are you doing here.? The server without suggestion and the chef looking didn't take care of the tables with only three tables. Good food but pricey and to simple.

I arrived to dinner with a local business colleague and we asked the hostess if we could go to the rooftop bar for a drink first before having dinner. "Of course" was the response but when we arrived we walked to the bar and were then chased by the host who was not present when we stepped off the elevator... More

It was a quiet evening in the restaurant - we were the only ones there for most of our dinner, and our... More

Recommendations: everybody should order a different plate and SHARE…. we have a lovely evening. Service is excellent, the place is small (reservation is recommended). Appetizers are a must…, remember to share. Main plates flavor out of this world. Desserts, wow….Prices very affordable. You won't regret it…..

This restaurant is located at the end of a little street. I researched dining establishments and am so happy we found this one. The interior decoration is lovely and you can view the chefs cooking from your table. The new chef/owner, Nicolas Gomez, came to our table to chat and ask how our meals were. They were outstanding.
