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.

We ate here last week for the second time. The food was excellent ,except for the seafood soup which was extremely watery in a milky broth with no flavor. Apart from that the gnocchi were very good and soft.They come mixed with arugula, pancetta and cherry tomatoes. The ribeye was excellent and it is serve with a very flavorful sauce... More

This restaurant is inside Olive Boutique Hotel and it has such a Euro chic flair. My husband and I loved the flavors and specially the Moroccan Lamb with couscous! Best plate in the house.

Last night we had the eight course tasting menu with a bottle of cava and it was simply outstanding! Small restaurant with an intimate atmosphere, great food and very attentive service. This restaurant should be at the very top of the list of restaurants in San Juan.

I am so happy that we got to eat dinner here. From beginning to end our meal was great. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was comfortable. It is an intimate restaurant and it looked like we were the only tourists there. My only regret was that we ate a late lunch and I did not have much of... More

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.

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
