I miss Olivia's so much. This was one of my favorite places in Isla. My partner and I would always go for the labné and a glass of Chardonnay. We always felt like home at Olivia's. The attention is amazing, the food is delicious and the ambiance is so beautiful and romantic. I cannot wait to go to Isla and... More

Twice in One Trip - The food at Olivia's Restaurant was so delightfully tasty that I returned a second night to experience the great cuisine and beautiful surroundings of this one-of-a-kind restaurant on Isla Mujeres. When on Isla - GO to Restaurant Olivia!

This place was recommended by our hotel, which we told them they should take off their list after our experience. It looked like a cool garden setting for a nice quiet dinner, but as we walked in the hostess was on the phone out front and looked annoyed that we were even entering. We sat at the bar waiting for... More

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.
