3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I had been raving about how amazing this restaurant is to everyone since I first tried it 2 years back. I always enjoyed a meal there whenever I was in town. So you can imagine the excitement when I finally brought my fiancé to Bar Olio during our stay in Dusseldorf. We arrived to the restaurant at 19:20 yesterday and... More

The food is excellent, the wine is great and the prices are moderate. However, OLIO do not take reservations, so don't bother to call. Just turn up. It's a small place so you will, however, have to wait your turn until a table is free on their terrace. In the meantime, have a drink and after about 15 minutes you... More

Very good food, place like student times with nice trending peoples and with view in the kitchen. You can communicate with everybody, sitting together at the same table, if you are able to do so. Very casual but excellent food any time and very friendy service. In the evening to reserve, best time after lunch time.

Came here with colleagues. Waiting for a table for eight pax but it was worth it. Lovely steak and spaghetti. Waitress was super patience and kind.

Unlike most of Düsseldorf, this place rocks some serious hipster vibes. The pros- good atmosphere and great food. The cons- be prepared to wait...and wait...for a table, and don't forget it's cash only.

One of the best restaurants in Düsseldorf. The food is amazing and very well prepared. They don't have a fixed menu but they have some hits that are maintained and deserve to be tasted as the oyster and the steak tartar, as starters! But one must not be afraid to try... Everything I have ordered there was just amazing! They... More

I'm not inclined towards the shickimicki joints in Düsseldorf and ended up here kind of by accident. I was tempted to cancel after I read the negative reviews on the staff and clientele - but I'm very glad I didn't. Yes, we had to wait for a table, but this was not unpleasant owing to the buzzing atmosphere and comprehensive... More

Food is great but no place ever and really bad service. Poorly maintained, kind of dirty to seat outside. They don't keep track who comes first so you might end eating sitting dow at the steps!

Thank Mauricio C
