Delicious food and excellent service

We had a delicious meal in this gorgeous restaurant. The service was stellar. If mosquitos bother you, you may want to put on some repellant in advance, as they are hanging around the outdoor tables. Highly recommend this spot!

Very good food. Mediterranean style. Service was a little off tonight but they were busy. We wanted more bread with our meal and our waited did not return once our meal came out until it was time to take our plates.

We love mediterranean food and when we read the review for Olivia's we knew this would be our kind of place and we were certainly not disappointed. We popped by in the afternoon to book at table for that evening. We recommend that you do the same so that you are not disappointed. You can sit in the restaurant or... More

Olivia's is the best - best service, best food, best ambiance. We had 33 people in our party for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration and the team at Olivia's was fantastic! The moussaka is great, as well as the spanakopita and short ribs. What a tasty meal!!!

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 atmosphere... 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.
