The drinks are super good and food are very delicious. The waitress are super friendly and able to speak English very... More

We were blown away by this restaurant! They sat us just before closing and everything was so lovely. The wine recommendation was spot on. The food was incredible, as was the service. The server was polite, knowledgable, and warm. We loved everything about this place and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Al fresco dining in the summer; good choices on the menu and our dishes were delicious. The food was reasonable, and the beer was cheap, but the wine was pretty expensive compared to other places in Prague. Conveniently located right in Old Town.

Restaurant offers a fairly European menu influenced by France and Italy. The food was very well cooked, tasty and beautifully presented. Staff were very helpful. Would certainly return.

Four of us had a wonderful dinner with good wine and creme brûlée that capped a delicious meal! The servers were friendly and the prices reasonable. I would definitely return to Oliva on my next visit to Prague.

We were looking for a place for dinner on a Sunday night and were staying near Oliva. Seeing the reviews we decided to walk over with our 1 year old son and a friend who had arrived in town earlier that day. It was just lovely. We had a nice spot outside and were well attended to, even with the... More

We often have a problem, that people confuse our restaurant with restaurant Oliva Nera in Prague 1. We asked our staff and nobody knew about this situation, that would happen. Thank your for your...

Very comfortable relaxed ambience, impeccable service, beautifully prepared food. We stumbled onto this place but it should be a destination restaurant.
