Everything was delicious and the staff is exceptional. The atmosphere was great and the owners really take time to let you know they care about your experience.

My fiance and I went to dinner at Olivia at 9:00pm. Every seat in the restaurant was full, but their was an open table in the front bar area. We sat there and enjoyed the greek appetizer and glasses of wine. When a table in back opened up, our server asked if we'd like to move. We did and it... More

Possibly the best food we had on Isla Mujeres, and we were tried a lot of the places in our 10 days there. We had not booked but they moved a few tables around so we could stay there. Great atmosphere and service. Do not miss this!

Best point of the restaurant is the excellent service. Food was good, but not exceptional. The plates are traditional receipts from Greek/ Morocco. So this is really original to find such savors on an island like this.

We were there recently this summer with our 2 grown sons. Wine, food , service and atmosphere are excellent. If we return to visit Isla Mujeres in the future we will go back to Olivias.

We felt like this place was in a rush to get us out of there. The food was good and a nice change. But you really feel like they are pushing you out. And they really should invest in some fans for the outside. it's hot!

Great food, great staff and a great setting. The restaurant is just down from the main street and it is worth making a reservation.

Oh, not the always fabulous - ambiance, service, and, above all, food - Olivia, but [some of these] reviews on (what I would otherwise consider the great) Trip Advisor (which usually offers diners, like me, super helpful information about otherwise unknown places throughout the world). Gimme a break! It's like giving a restaurant a poor grade because it was raining... More
