Great food and friendly atmosphere

If you're looking for something a little more authentic and not intimidating, go to Oliva. Set in the picturesque harbour, we have had excellent meals with great advice from Craig (about both the food and the local area). We can highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was fab, we went twice and were very pleased both times. Not the usual menu of burger or pizza but high quality skewers and enchilladas etc instead. Good service and nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend, (and Im fussy!!)

Waited to be seated, sat by the table for a good 10 minutes waiting for our menu's, so I asked for them and received a response of "I didn't see you sneak in" which we didn't. Another member of staff seated us. In fairness it was busy, but the staff who is British and wears glasses continued being rude to... More

We have been to Oliva's several times and it never fails to deliver! The Prawns in Garlic appetizer are a particular favourite. The setting is beautiful, friendly staff and food to melt your taste buds.

It's possible you get a bad meal on this strip, stick to Oliva, there is choice enough to have a different meal set up for more than one night. Also the linked deli do A+ sandwiches/home baked bread.

Cafe Oliva serves some of the best food in Cala Bona, it is very busy in the evenings but is well worth a 10-15min wait, we visited twice during our stay and had impressive meals that were great tasting and extremely well presented, the only downside we experienced was feeling pressured to leave before finishing our drinks as this restaurant...

We ate here one evening after reading a lot of good reviews and the food lived up to the good comments I read. I enjoye the chicken skewers and my wife had the homemade burger. Both meals were very nice and nicely presented. Someone close by had the lamb and it looked superb. All the food looked very nice and... More

Visited here last week while holidaying in Cala millor. The food, cocktails and service were excellent. The homemade bread and aioli dip to start and The Gambas pil pil was to die for. All in all a fantastic night and would definitely return if holidaying here again

I can't recommend this place enough. Over the course of 10 days, my boyfriend and I came to eat here three times. Although their menu can look average with burgers, steaks etc, the food is beautiful. I can't recommend the salmon and sea bream enough! The best thing about here though is their chocolate mousse, its delicious. One of the... More
