Seriously rude Maitre-de. It is the very last place I would try in Ibiza town....eat at McDonalds or the petrol station before you go to be insulted here. Not only did they lose our reservation but the manner in which they handled it was legendry school of insults.

Having advised the restaurant that we were just finishing off a drink quickly they left to quickly join us and restaurant said no problem . Can back... More

A typical tourist joint with consistent food quality and service. Nothing wrong with the food here just your regular place.

I always expect a wonderful experience at El Olivo and I am never disappointed. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly and professional, even when the restaurant is full. This year I can recommend the Thai beef salad and the Italian tapas; Artichokesalad and Bresaola rolls. Boking is essential and has to be done a few days... More

Having checked out the reviews before hand, i was hoping it would live up to expectations - and it did !! Well worth the walk up the hill into the old town - don't get distracted by the restaurants lower down - it's definitely the wait. I would certainly try to book. Stupidly we didn't but still managed to get... More

I reserved a table for five, and were met by waiters claiming that they did not have my reservation booked. Lousy customer treatment and/or booking function out of control.

Great restaurant, with charming ambience...we sat outdoors and just being in the middle of old town Ibiza looking at beautiful balconies with clothes hanging outside, makes you feel part of the old civilization. The food is excellent, service impeccable and tables are so close together that you end up having conversation with your next table neighbor, so it's an opportunity... More

Great location with the Old Town. Food and service were faultless. And a great "people watching" spot! Not to be missed!!
