El olvio is compared to all the fabulous places inibiza a bit of a ttourist trap. Setting is ok but commercial, and the dishes are average. Only good thing was our friendly waiter, but that is not worth 130 euros. Big disappointment

We loved the meal we had here. Great location, the service was outstanding and I thought it was great value. I went off the set menu, octopus in oil and vinegar with local Jamon, both superb. Chicken with fresh vegetables and ginger was also fantastically tasty and to finish a creamy rice pudding which was delicious and not at all... More

Over the years we regularly visited the nice restaurant El Olivo in Dalt Vila, because of the excellent food and the atmosphere in the old part of the town. Also this year we visited this restaurant, twice. The first time was, like always, excellent. The second time however the service could have been bette, to say the least. We both... More

Yet again a delightful evening spent here with my son who lives in Ibiza. We ate in the open room opposite to the street seating, it was fabulous. Can't wait for my next visit!

Really nice restaurant. The great thing is the amazing location. It's set in the first little plaza after going up the ramp in the old town. Great food and service.

Not the first time we have eaten at this restaurant, hopefully not the last. The food was superb the service attentive without feeling rushed. The location is a perfect setting. For the start of evening. Tables are nicely spaced, good mix of people. Would recommend this restaurant unreservedly. You will need to book in advance.

We heard about this restaurant and decided to try. First night there was no place, it's highly recommended to reserve, but the second one we set. Well... I understood why it's always full: nice place, super kind staff and amazing food! There's always the dish of the day and a great menu, from starters to desserts you'll enjoy the perfect... More
