Wonderful Greek, Israeli and Moroccan-inspired food, lovely staff, best ambience (that courtyard and fountains, palm trees and bougainvillea) and a wonderful dining experience. We went for the first time ever during our first week of holidays and immediately made a reservation for the second week on our way out the door! The Greek or Moroccan tapas plate appetizers are especially... More

I was so excited about eating here. It was absolutely gorgeous. The food so very disappointing. It wasn't bad, but it also wasn't anything special. I would give it another try, maybe it was an off night.

Our travel group of 9 ate a fantastic dinner here. The staff was very friendly and helpful even with a large noisy group like ours. Food was amazing and delicious, we all ate from each other's plate and all of us loved the meals. Delicious cocktails was a bonus.

We happened upon Olivia's our second night on Isla. What a fortuitous event! The food was amazing, service was outstanding!!! We went twice during our vacation, and plan to visit again soon! The mixed plate was phenomenal! Lamb chops wonderful, but the best was the Greek appetizer plate w parmesean bread!

My girlfriend and I found this place off the reviews on trip advisor. We walked in off the street and just being the two of us we managed to fit into the front area near the door. Big groups would have to book as we saw a few groups turned away. The meals were amazing and the service was really... More
