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.

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
