So good we went twice in 4 days

We spent 4 days on Isla Mujeres to swim with the whale sharks - a truly fabulous experience! We had planned on going out to eat at a different restaurant each night - there are many good choices on Isla - but after eating at Olivia, we went back again. While all the food is really great and the... read more

Had a lovely lovely meal here. Sat outside in the courtyard and enjoyed the atmosphere as much as the food. Had the Mediterranean salad, which was enormous and so tasty. Great menu filled with one delicious looking choice after another. Can't recommend this place enough.

The atmosphere at Olivia's is amazing. The lighting was low and romantic although the whole family was welcome. The food was terrific and plentiful. There wasn't anything there we didn't like.

Visited Olivia two times when staying on the island. Olivia has great food, service and has a great venue. I would recommend the tzasiki, and mixed grill. Be sure to book a table as this gem is busy. I will be back on my next trip to the Isla.

Very delicious tapas - the olives, feta and tzatiki were delicious and the red pepper and eggplant dip is delicious! Don't miss the chocolate mousse!

Delicious bread. Pastilla was an amazing mix of flavors that was our favorite dish. Side dish of potatoes was awesome. Very pleasant atmoshere and attentive staff. Hummus had a bitter aftertaste. Cherry ice cream was good but not quite what I expected from the rave reviews. More vanilla with cherry swirled in than what I would call cherry. Would definitely... More

On a side street steps from playa Norte you can find authentic Turkish Moroccan Israeli cuisine with friendly service and a pretty outdoor space. Not pricey. Worth the trip.
