So the order Harissa chicken AVERAGE and that's generous. Second starter prawns, crayfish and couscous sounds gooooooodddd and expensive. Well portion below average, taste (what taste) and... More

We have eaten at Olivo on several occasions whilst visiting family on the Island. On every occasion, we have been delighted with the quality of the food, the attentiveness of staff, the ambience, in fact everything about the place. The prices are such that we use it any evening we decide to eat out, not just for special occasions. Despite,... More

We visited Olivo yesterday for lunch and I have to say everything was spot on. The food was amazing and the service was first class. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the island.

The food was excellent. Some recommendations are, for a starter, the prawn and couscous, Gamberoni, deliciously garlicky, and for mains, the duck and chestnut rigatoni was amazing and the pollo linguine was pronounced very good. A simple rocket salad (a bit small for the price) was also great, as was a rich spaghetti bolognese. Puds? I recommend the homemade waffle... More

We came here again with our friends when we visited the island. The food is not just "normal" italian pieced together; it always comes with something unusual or special, like a little pot of roasted potatoes or an interesting chutney or salsa. I also found the staff very child-friendly: They had no coloring books left for our children so one... More

Olivos of Ryde should be renamed Heaven as it is an Oasis of calm. Relaxing background music, a selection of Cocktails and amazing wines, Coffees, tea, Hot Choc etc etc Served along side in my opinion some of the best quality food the Island has to offer. They will even alter the ingredients of a dish to suit you if... More

Thought we'd have quiet meal for two. Had two mains, two pud and three drinks and came to over £80. Ordered large glass of red and got glass filled to about two inches - really should have said something. Used to be a good venue but no more. Think they're trying to make a mint!
