Holiday meal

Great location, great service and great food. Me and my wife had the fish platter. The fish was well cooked and flaked beautifully, the prawns were juicy and the calamari well seasoned. The cave sangria was well made , full of fruit and packed a boozy, yet not over the top punch. One meal was... read more

We had decided we wanted some traditional tapas. This may sound simple on a Spanish island but trust me it's not ! Most restaurants say tapas but it is either mass produced rubbish or English food under pretence of tapas. As we wonder round the marina we noticed this place was super busy so we looked at the menu and... More

great food in an atmospheric taps bar. Great music, speedy service and good value for money. We had lunch inside on a day where we had torrential rain and thunderstorms.

Visited here as it is in a fantastic location and looked very busy which is a good sign. Waiters speak English too. Fantastic fresh food. Great kids menu. Cannot fault any of our food. All delicous at a reasonable price too. Definitely worth a visit if staying locally on holiday.

Our 2nd night in Cala Bona, unsure where to eat and what to have. We were looking at the menu at Oliva's when a great "double act" came out to promote their restaurant. They were friendly, funny and very welcoming, and most of all everything they said was true. We had tapas (gambas pil pil, goats cheese & risotto balls... More

Excellent tapas, great location and the service was exceptional. It was my daughters birthday and the manager went the extra mile to make her day extra special with candles and selfies at the bar. Thank you for a great birthday lunch!!!

No frozen stuff here. Everything freshly cooked on the premises by the British owner. Lightly battered fish bites with aioli a masterpiece of prime white succulent fish in the lightest, crispest batter. Other tapas just as good. Great pizzas and main courses too. Need to book if you want to eat at night, a day or two in advance.

We have been coming here on a regular basis for 10 years now and love the location on the harbour and of course the food! Front of house and owner Richard along with Craig make a big fuss on arrival and throughout your stay. Food can be anything from Tapas to main meals - all fantastic and reasonable prices. Always...
