Description: 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.

Yesterday evening we had dinner in el olivi. We sat On a table with almost no light, so it was hard to read the menu or to see what exactly we got On our plate... There was no music... The price of the 3 way menu was not mentionned. A glass of champagne 23€ ( which you do not know... More

This was a lovely dining experience in a very pretty room with excellent service. Very classy but not stuffy. The food good but not as good as I hoped given the sticker price and the high level of class and service at the hotel. We enjoyed our meal, but to tell the truth, we enjoyed our meal at some restaurants... More

I had the Suckling pig and creme brulé for desert. My friend had Duck Magret and some nice stuffed Canoli for desert. We had water for drinks and ended with a 140 euro check. They even charged 14 euro to use the cutlery? In my book that is outrageous. On the positive side the ambience of the place was second... More

El Olivo was the site for my 50th birthday dinner. Waiter was attentive and enjoyable; food was creative and delicious; "extra treats" arrived to our pleasure. Amazing.

Mediocre food, but excellent service- staff were really lovely, attentive but not intrusive. I don't understand why staff don't ask why a guest returns a plate almost untouched. At these prices I would expect very good or excellent food. For example, I had the penne and lobster pasta starter. The pasta was rubbery, not al dente, the sauce was vaguely... More

I thought the restaurant was overpriced for what is offered. I prefer Sebastian and another one by the beach, Ca's Patro March, very simple but with excellent and tasty food. There was another option

The wine list is extensive over 40 pages and the choice of food is exquisite. The service was outstanding, and we were given the beautiful corner table with stunning views, an unforgettable evening.

It's interesting, we had not booked El Olivo previously as reviews on TA were mixed but this time we were with friends who were staying at La Residencia so it was an opportunity to try it.
