Wonderful atmosphere. Already at the entrance you are impressed by the pictures on the walls and authentic armchairs. The menu is rich and stimulating. The range of options is respectable. The treatment of meat is high quality and respectful. Fine wine menu. The waiters know...the right serving. It was fun, delicious and delightful. Pure quality. Above all it is kosher. Have pleasent time like we had.More

We were a couple of vegan, searching for a fine restaurant in Eilat. Definitely, this is the BEST option. They have a very rich vegan menu; they offer a good service; the dishes are pleasantly served; and above all - all dishes that we have...ordered were well made with attention to details and very tasty (especially their home-made gnocchi!). I will surely come back!More

We were the only diners and the waiter and chef were very attentive, but the food is just so-so. Red wine was served cold which was strange. Foie gras did not have any taste. Ceviche was bland. Carpaccio was good.

Words can’t express my impression. We’ve decided to try this restaurant. The waiter was gentle , gave us a warm welcome and helped us with good advise. The wine prices are more then fare (25 shekels for a Gamla is a price you can’t find...a lot!). The pasta - AMAZING!!! We took simple one (Olla Olio) and the taste was one of the best we tasted!!. And the salmon - great! This is a place I warmly recommend visiting and enjoy!More

We were not impressed. The service was OK, but the food was very average. Our foccacia was bland, the steak was rather tasteless, the lamb kebab uninspiring and the mashed potatoes were a chunky, glumpy mess. A few little things irritated: A request to remove...onion from the salad was approved, but for unclear reasons they could not serve the olives on the side. Worst of all, the red wine was served cold, straight from the fridge and was undrinkable for half an hour plus. Some of the servers were friendly, one was not. For these prices not recommended.More

Not tasty. Eatable, good service, but just wasn't good. We didn't eat meat. The dishes we had were eatable, not more than that.

The place has great atmosphere for couples, with nice music. We had a nebraska sinta stake and the mixed meat dish and everything was great! This place really needs more advertising!

We saw some bad reviews here and had doubt whether to enter or not, but it was really good. We ordered tortollini with meat and some pasta, and everything was tasty. Service was quick and friendly. It was worth coming there.

Items on the menu are not what they seem, ordered the cauliflower falafel and it was just fried cauliflower on sweet potato fries. The mushroom casserole was in no way a casserole. It was three small mushroom pods in a cream sauce. The focaccia bread...was not focaccia it was just a long bread stick. However, the food came really quickly and the service was good but that was probably because we were the only ones there... Definitely was a strange experience overall.More

firstly, they strangely refused to join two adjacent tables that were definitely out of the way, so we sat back to back at two tables, and were given poor excuses as to why. the starters were decent, although the champions casserole was under cooked ....the fillet medallions were definitely not medium, tasting more like a shoe. some dishes were over salted while some weren't salted at all. the mashed potatoes had chunks in them. service was average at best. atrocious value for money.More

Not the most inviting restaurant from the outside, and a bit confusing as to what type of food to expect. So it was a bit of a gamble when we picked it, but it turned out to be a good move. The food was really...good and heaped so high that we felt guilty as to how much we left. The staff were friendly and we wish them good luck with what seemed to be a fairly new venture.More

We love delicious food but don't often splurge on the good restaurants - every single thing we ordered at Olla was amazing. Some of us love sushi and others don't, and here there was something for everyone. The salmon sushi plate was enough to fill...up even dad, mom got tender and flavorful beef, and our 10 yr old ventured away from schnitzel and pasta and discovered that she loved the make-your-own-sushi (just cucumber, please) and mom's steak. Our 13-yr-old budding chef asked for the secret to the amazing mashed potatoes, and Avi came over in a quiet moment and shared his method! (Shhh.) The wait staff was friendly and nearby but not hovering, and the atmosphere was lovely.More

J had the signature sweetbread dish. It was fantastic. Same for my second course the fois gras. You don't go for the sushi, although my kids said it was not bad. They didn't like the quality of the red tuna. Friendly owner/waiter/cook. Good wines. Going...back to try the tournedos rossinni.More

It was my 3rd visit to Olla, and I was not disappointed. The owner, Avi, couldn't be more helpful, the service was great, and the food delicious. I have organised a private Birthday party for 16 people in the past at the Restaurant, and it...was beyond expectations.More
