We visited Olivia's, based on reviews and reco's. It was truly outstanding. Beautiful setting out on the patio. (Too bad there was a very LOUD woman talking POLITICS! Really??!!!) I should have moved, but just stuck kleenex in the ear closest to her. Anyways, we started with the feta, olive, eggplant appetizer with the beautiful loaf of Parmesan Bread. OMG!!... More

Wonderful food, wonderful atmosphere, wonderful wait staff and Yaron and Lior are the perfect hosts. As always Olivias is just what we expect. The spanakopta and mousaaka and the baklava were perfect. Looking forward to returning with the family.

Food and service is consistently excellent. Complex flavors of Mediterranean entrees make this a place to experience. Very serine atmosphere and outstanding customer service.

The waitress was kind enough to tell us they had many people with reservations coming in but we could sit in the bar area if we wished. I had chicken in olives and my husband had Moroccan fish. Mine was fabulous and my husband swears it was the best fish he has ever had. The service was great and we... More

We got two different appetizer platters: Mediterranean and Moroccan I think. The tzaziki is delicious, hummus, olives, warm Parmesan house baked bread, approximately 8 diffent dishes per platter. I always get the beef kabobs, tender and so good. I've never heard a bad word about the place. Dinner is served in a candle lit garden, it's very romantic. Service is... More

I have been coming to this island for 32 years. Over the years there have appeared many good restaurants. Not many great ones. Olivia is one of the "greats" - the top one by far for consistent food quality at fair prices. And Olivia offers a friendly, intimate atmosphere. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

I'm always looking to please my exceedingly handsome and adoring husband while on Isla and no trip to Isla is complete without a visit to the exceedingly romantic and attractive restaurant called Olivia. So, on one of our first nights together, we stopped in and had a fantastic meal (and they always are) served by exceedingly friendly, attentive and professional... More

That should be all you need to know - given how many wonderful places there are to eat here on Isla. If someone who has been coming to Isla for 9+ years, and counts himself as someone who knows most of the great places to eat (never mind that Olivia is probably the most beautiful of them all in my...
