We have been going to Olivia for several years. We will not return. They do not have proper ventilation and you are sitting in a sauna while you eat. They are over priced for what you get but stealing my wine was too much! Unbelievable. If you want to be ripped off, you should go.

On our last night on the island, after our (pretty, charming, smart) friends had flown home, my partner and I had a proper date night. My Moroccan fish was perfect, so I can't regret it, but my bite of his lamb chops was amazing.

This should be listed as the best restaurant to eat on the island. We went twice and never had anything that wasn't super delicious! The setting is very quaint and the service was great. We ordered the pias (white beans, tomatoes, boiled eggs), Parmesan bread served with feta, olives, eggplant, and tzaziki, chicken with olives, Moroccan style fish and spanakopita.... More

The restaurant is beautiful, of you go and have a large party, make sure to deserve at the back of the restaurant, it's a beautiful garden that will have you forgetting you are in Isla .mujeres, food is also pretty good, but the location is what makes this restaurant great

We had dinner here with another couple. Our hotel was suppose to make reservations for us but when we arrived, no reservation. It was not a problem and the restaurant hostess seated us promptly. The atmosphere was beautiful and looked as though we had walked into a romantic garden. The service was excellent and every meal was delicious. I highly... More

What a warm friendly hospitable resturant. No where has ever said eat with us and pay us tomorrow! No credit cards, No issue as food is absolutely amazing yet inexpensive. We had to wait 15 mins for table so book ahead but as I always say, never eat in an empty restaurant. Loved the place.

This was a great place to try something new. The waiter Brian was outstanding. The menu was varied and interesting with many outstanding choices. We had wine and a cocktail to start, along with bread and tziki were amazing. We both enjoyed our entree but would have been more able to enjoy if it were not so hot... not the... More

Dined in this beautiful courtyard restaurant with a large group. Despite the size of our group, the service was prompt and excellent. The food was simply outstanding. When in Mexico, I usually opt only for Mexican food, but I am so glad we strayed into this Mediterranean restaurant. Everyone at our table was thrilled with their dishes. We will definitely... More
