We had booked a table for lunch from our London home several weeks ago to avoid disappointment. When we arrived we were welcomed by friendly staff and had pre luncheon drinks in their amazing settings. Having been here before I was not disappointed and proud to share this place for our lunch with my friends. I saw the Maitre de... More

Lovely food and great attention to detail on all levels. As the sun sets over Deia I don't think there could be a more perfect location. One of my all time favourite restaurants in the world I think and cannot wait to return

El Olive is located within the Belmond La Residencia Resort and a highest standard restaurant. Its Menu has a large variety of choices. Especially their fish meals are highly recommendable. The outdoor seating is wonderful, especially at sundown, while observing the gorgeous environment. The service personal is highly professional and the service level is second to none. It is not...

We had a seven course dinner with recommend wine by glas. Everything was cooked to perfectionism. Service was outstanding and the environment was very romantic.

The drive in from Palma through Valdemosa is absolutely breath-taking and well worth the 40 minute drive. El Olivo is the restaurant at the beautiful La Residencia hotel which clings by its fingernails to the side of Lords of the Rings-like mountains as they plunge into the sea at Deia. Even if the food had been dreadful, the setting for... More

My wife and I had tappas and then we both had the seafood pasta for our entry. The food was very good and the grounds and ambience are amazing. The service was very good except for one service person who was curt and very unfriendly. If the owner is reviewing this review, the bad service person was a 30ish male... More

I went there with a group of friends in April 2014. We waited quite a while before we were able to order drinks (the restaurant was not busy at the time). We decided on the tasting menu, and I am sorry to say, it was a disappointment. Half the dishes were excellent and beautifully prepared, while the other half were... More
