We had a Tapas/wine tasting with Francisco that did NOT disappoint. All the food, the wine, his expertise, Bernado and Gloria the sous chefs were amazing!!! Simply done with local ingredients. His food was the best. We were so impressed. Highly recommend La Oliva. Well done and a fabulous experience!!!

We really enjoyed our experience with Francisco! It felt very authentic. There was so much delicious food and wine, that we barely were able to finish up our amazing desert. He was a great host, just like visiting a relative. He called during the day to make sure we are coming. He was concerned that we would not enjoy ourselves... More

Francisco is both a perfect host and a great chef. We found out about this place from friends and we were not disappointed. This is as personal a touch as we've had in a restaurant. In fact, it's not a restaurant--it's a food and wine tasting shop. Francisco is very knowledgeable and quite passionate about his craft. Throughout the meal,... More

We went to La Oliva on the 8th of August 2014. It's a truly fantastic experience, a taster menu of olive oils and five wines served with a myriad of different dishes all with a connection to Granada. The evening is hosted by Francisco and his helpers Gloria and Bernardo, I say helpers as this a better description than waiters... More

A really unusual setting, with only a few tables. We were a party of six, including two children. Loved the locally sourced produce and the wines to match the food. It was nice to hear about each dish before it was served. The dessert wine was to die for! Fourteen courses and we ate everything.

I found my way into La Oliva by invitation of a friend who was studying abroad in Granada, and had acquainted Francisco. I was told of the outstanding hospitality and magnificent wine and food pairing that could be found in La Oliva. My expectations were met and exceeded. The minute you walk in the door the sensation of home and... More

On the night of July 23, 2014 I had the ABSOLUTE best authentic Spanish food, wine and olive oil tasting of my life. As previously mentioned, La Oliva is not a restaurant but it is indeed a tasting experience you are sure to not forget. What was even better than the food was the way in which I first met... More

This is definitely not to be missed. Great food, history and friendly service of Francisco and Bernardo. I would recommend it to everybody who come to Granada. But don't forget to book before you come

We loved every second of our dining experience with Francisco. He is such a gracious host and puts a lot of care and love into the dishes he serves. The food and atmosphere is so unpretentious - a very authentic taste of Spanish culture and food. Francisco recently moved the dinners to a quaint and lovely space just outside of... More

This was one of the best meals I have ever eaten while abroad. I lived in Granada for 1 year and ate my way around the city during that time. This was one of the best so if you are in Granada I highly recommend it for an intimate evening. Food with stories and a good tasting of the province.... More
