We are staying a stones throw from this restaurant and its busy every night, all night. We didn't book but they moved a few tables around to accommodate us, food was great, service was excellent and location is second to none. Priced higher than the others, but you pay for what you get. Well worth a visit!

Who knows what it's like! Didn't have a table for one available, but they seemed happy to let tables for two go free until a couple could take it. They just seem like greedy restauranters to me. Sad to write this report.

Beautiful location inside the walls of the old town. We were given a table outside, which enabled us to people watch as the sun went down. The atmosphere was great - the street was bustling with tourists, shoppers and street performers. Service was very attentive (notwithstanding that we were a ten-top table). FOOD: ceviche starter was amazing. Squid ink rice... More

We went to this restaurant recently. The manager was the rudest man we have ever encountered in a restaurant. He was obnoxious, bordering on the aggressive. In the end we walked out and went elsewhere. I have read the other reviews and it seems that this is the mans usual behaviour. If you have any sense, please go elsewhere. we... More

The restaurant has a great location, it's lovely to sit there on an evening and people watch. Our waiter was fabulous and made our dining experience. We shared a ham starter which was good, hubby had fish and I had steak..it was nice but I have had better. One starter, 2 mains, 1 dessert and a bottle of wine was... More

Every time I go to Ibiza I MUST eat there, their food and service is amazing. The square and full vibrant shops make it a destination, however once should book before turning up to avoid disappointment.

It's in the middle of a main tourist area but the quality was tip top. The starter was not very far off a Michelin star restaurant (shrimp ) and the main course being a little unusual but still delicious. The (male) service was very attentive and easy on the eye :-) We'd visit again

Very nice experience at El Olivo. The food and the wine list are fantastic and diversified. The manager and waiters were very friendly. It definitely deserves a visit during your IBIZA's experience.
