Olivia's is one of the reasons we fell in love with Isla Mujeres. The espresso martini is addictive! Basically order anything on the menu, it's fresh, homemade and always consistently delicious!

I live on the I sland and I've eaten here several times before. At this time, I would place it in the top three restaurants on IM and rank it as number one if you compare value, quality and service. Tonight I just wasn't in the mood to cook or go out, so I ordered Olivia's Kafka wrap through a... More

I've eaten here twice now. Beautiful setting on a beautiful island. Great service; awesome Mediterranean-style food. The chicken stewed in olives and lemons was incredible. Make a reservation. This place is popular, for good reason.

We were on the island celebrating our anniversary and a local suggested we eat here for dinner! The restaurant is literally in a garden setting- SO romantic. Great, homemade authentic Mediterranean cuisine. My husband order the moussaka and I order the rack of lamb with mashed potatoes! We both cleared our plates! 5 star restaurant for sure!

We celebrated a birthday here and the food was outstanding! It was busy with staff going in every direction but we didn't have a long wait for anything. The chicken in olives was out of this world! Loved the setting in the courtyard. Was great for our family celebration!

I will dream about this place for years to come. I came here with a few friends and we sat on the back patio. The atmosphere of the back patio is romantic and feels so comfortable. The food... Utterly amazing. The lahmajune changed my life and made me want to be a better person. Being able to explore a lot... More

This was our third visit to Olivia's and we were slightly disappointed. The service seemed rush and the food not quite as fresh and tasty has we had remembered it. However the space is lovely and they have the best wine list in Isla. The menu is focused on Mediterranean food and is a nice change of pace from the... More

Labane! You have to try this! Their menu on the website describes it as "homemade yogurt cheese serviced with pita bread". I describe it as awe inspiring. Reservations required, two seatings per night. I was able to walk in at 5pm and snag a reservation for the 8:30 seating for the same night for two. Very different atmosphere from anywhere... More

After spending 4 days eating as much comidas mexicano as we could, we needed a bit of break and Olivia provided this! Not only was it different but it was fantastically authentic Mediterranean! I'm still amazed that they served Arrak, half a world away!

Thank Pascal J
