One of the best beach bars on the Costa Blanca! Not really a restaurant though

Oli-ba-ba is one of my favorite beach bars. It has a very relaxed atmosphere, good music, fairly affordable drinks and regular parties / events. Located on a long sandy beach with the next beach bar only visible in the distance it gives a very idyllic feeling. They are open until late which makes... read more

I live in Oliva over a year and been on the beach almost daily. It took me some time to discover this facility last October because there is no sign of this establishment seen from the beach. In the winter time I was mostly the only customer - therefore the service was good. I ate couple of times there but... More

Please get away from this place!!! One of the owners, Pedro, was the worst person that I've ever met. I went with my family to spend my vacation in his Apartments (Olibaba Apartment) WHICH IS A SPAM!!! IT'S COMPLETELY ILLEGAL. He is hosting people in his house that it's totally against the law. It hasn't has address and it's more... More

A beautiful place where you can relax and enjoy a beautiful beach, eating and deguster excellent paellas, fideas diffrentes and rice specialties of the Valencian Community. The ability to go kit surfing , bathing, or while lounging in the sun !! In the evening we discover a great bar lounge, with very good music and drinks at a very affordable... More

Oli Ba Ba is a beach bar which opens in the summer on Oliva playa. There are two ways to look at it. 1. A rather average restaurant. 2. A really good beach bar. You can go on a Sunday, take your own cooler box/picnic - they don't care - and order some drinks from the bar, or take your... More

To begin with,we visited on a very sunny but incredibly windy day (16/6/2014) which completely ruled out any prospects of sitting at the front of the restaurant, if we could have sat here the whole ambiance may have improved, and we had to sit on the un-inspiring rear terrace, shaded from the wind. We were the only customers for lunch.... More

a third visit after 2 previous disasters may seem fool-hardy but then there is also thrid time lucky. So which was it? I am happy to say the latter. Previous experience of the food and service was horrendous - undercooking was a feature. This time, a platter of grilled veg was perfectly cooked and delicious. Service was prompt and pleasant....
