We've tried going here on several trips, but they're never open in October! I've tried emailing them but they don't respond. So I won't bother with them anymore

Tastes from the Mediterranean... quiet little place and the food was good. Surprising to find Mediterranean food in Mexico.

Wonderful food, a nice change of pace from the many Mexican restaurants. We sat in the shaded back area, which was reasonably cool and comfortable. Tried lots of great small plates and had a nice bottle of wine. Very much recommended.

One of the best restaurants on Isla with an attentive staff and wonderful fresh Mediterranean vibe. Service is comfortable and prompt promoting a relaxing evening. Beautiful garden surrounding and first rate dining is perfect for that special night. This is our farewell to the island dinner.

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
