This is a real surprise how good the place is! We stayed in Park Inn hotel and just wanted to find a good place to eat as close to the hotel as possible. Oliva was just round the corner. Normally you would pass by without noticing the small sign. The place was crowded with locals and only 1 table free.... More

The restaurant is very cosy with great selection of tasty dishes. After living in Prague for 5 years, I first tried mussels in Oliva and was pleasantly surprised! Recommended the place for the team dinner and everyone was happy with the selection, they even accommodated the food to the needs of our extra-allergic colleague. Totally recommended for both corporate events... More

Oliva was a 3 minute walk from our hotel and we went there for our last dinner in Prague and it didnt disappoint. We didnt have a booking but they gladly gave us an outside table on the sidewalk. The staff were very friendly and were able to converse in English. The food was really delicious (risotto with prawns!). They... More

Tried this restaurant as it was close to our hotel ,Park Inn, and the menu looked interesting. Overall we were very pleased. Good quality food cooked and presented well with knowledgeable staff on hand to offer advice. The bread and pudding was to die for!

This is one of our local restaurants. We booked a table on Friday night last minute on their website, and this was confirmed within seconds. The waiting staff were very friendly and attentive. Our waitress was also very accommodating about my dairy intolerance and double checked ingredients with the kitchen. My fiancée had grilled octopus to start, whilst I had... More
