El Olivo Restaurante is a refurbished 16th century olive press, offering a superb menu and equally impressive wine list. Situated in the beautiful La Residencia hotel, this is perhaps one of the finest restaurants in Mallorca. The outdoor area, lit by candlelight is a supremely romantic dinner setting.

Expensive, but a first class meal for a special night. The gourmet meal was exceptional and would recommend it. Great service.

Our first visit to El Olivo was in 1992 and then we have visited several times. We had our dinner here after our wedding and it is a very romantic and special place to dine up here among the mountains here in Deia. Been here with a group of 12. Been here with my children. So in different constellations but... More

El Olivio in La Residencia is one beautiful restaurant. The views are spectacular and the service is impeccible. The food is wonderful as well. Some very interesting entrees and starters and superior wine. If you are staying at the hotel you may find yourself eating here a bunch of times as we did. You could do worse.

Dear guest, Many thanks for your visit and review in this website. I am happy you had an amazing and romantic dinner.

The setting is just amazing, book a table on the terrace around 9pm to watch the sunset. Service wise I was very impressed, friendly and professional staff which were very understanding with our needs, all mains served at once even though we ordered the salt bass which takes 20 mins. Food wise, every plate we ordered was of excellent quality... More

We had the most delicious salt crusted sea bass which was a special of the day and it was flavorful and cooked perfectly. You have to order the salt baked Sollers Prawns, this starter was the...
