July 2015 visit to Isla Mujeres - The atmosphere is relaxing and exotic, with a back patio that incorporates Mediterannean and Far East vibes. Our waiters were fantastic, very friendly and accommodating, not only giving fantastic recommendations but making us practically feel right at home in this great little restaurant. But as for the important part, the food, was where... More

I was GRANDPAcking in Isla for a week and heard about the Olivia ... so i gave it a try. I had their Spanakopita for MXP155 and added a beer. The Spanakopita was nice but the meal was small and the beer was MXP40. For MXP200 (ex tips) I had better meals elsewhere.

Had a dinner with friends at Olivia, which was recommended by my dive instructor. It is a Mediterranean restaurant, located a bit off main streets. Ambiance is very nice. They serve a lot of slow cooked meat. All our meals were good, but nothing special to come back.

The best food we had in the Cancun area...period! The prices on the menu were reasonable for the quality of the food served. Most of the dishes had to have been started in the morning to be served for the dinner menu. The cuisine is greek/eastern with a modern twist. The four of us just sat there after taking our... More

Olivia is a damn good food with a twist. The owner has a long standing history with Isla Mujeres and its people. They used to own one of the best places to have breakfast. I believe Olivia has been open about six years now. The food is very good Greek and a great place for a romantic dinners, and also... More

The food is unlike anything you would try else where. The menu may see odd to some but everything is great. We were there with a party of six and we all got different things and all were amazing. The atmosphere is romantic and you feel like you are in a different place. The only down fall is you did... More

We really enjoyed the exceptionally good food. The service was good even if the waiter was somewhat distracted bringing items twice to our table that we didn't order and forgetting to bring the tea. I guess the two things that bothered we were when we were first seated we were asked if we wanted water. This normally means a glass... More
