We walked by the restaurant and almost did not eat here because it looked too upscale. We wanted something good and fun, this place had white table clothes and looked like a couples (DATE) location. I am glad we decided to stay and eat here!...More

Description
With its impressive views from the large lakeside terrace and its stylish interior Restaurant Olivo is as rewarding as a short break away, whatever the weather. At lunchtime and dinner Chef Hugues Blanchard and his team serve culinary delights inspired by the Mediterranean's light and varied cuisine. The menu features Mediterranean classics with an innovative touch as well as new creations to delight the palate.The wine list is also full of surprises. Besides the finest vintages from the established wine regions around the Mediterranean it also comprises specialities from lesser known regions.
