We went here all four nights we were in Punta, because the food was so good, so fresh, service excellent, service very fast, Olivias is open early (unlike most other restaurants in Punta) and it is very reasonable pricing. Excellent restaurant, highly recommend. We had chicken/Vegie salads, beef/vegie tacos, chicken supreme, raviolis, breads, drinks - Everything we ordered was absolutely... More

The port area of Punta Del Este is full of good to great places to eat. All with great views. However, they keep Uruguayan hours and don't open for dinner until 8 or 8:30pm or even get busy until 9:30 or 10. One evening after finishing our days business in Punta del Este early we thought to grab an early... More

Nice and simple restaurant into which we literally run one night. Warm ambience, very good service and food. Excellent value for money. A great alternative to all the expensive restaurants of the Port area. Our personal best option in Punta. Meta' ristorante, meta' pub. Se non siete tanto per le formalita', questo e' il posto giusto visto che cibo, servizio... More

We went one night for dinner and returned for lunch the day after. Very friendly, English speaking staff and food was great. Had beef for dinner, and sandwich/pizza for lunch and loved everything.

We stumbled upon Olivia Resto walking around one evening. We were pleased with the speed which the food came out and the quality dishes they put together. The staff spoke English pretty well and were super helpful when asked to translate some of the menu for us. The pizzas were the best we had had while on our honeymoon. Their... More

We had dinner yesterday at Olivia's, with a friend couple. It was not the first time there for any of us, and deciding where to go, this option arised naturally: the four of us had liked the place before. We had a nice jug of clericot, salads, fish, chicken and ravioli. For dessert we tried the strawberry triffle and the... More

It can be hard to find a place to eat in Punta. So many choices, so many beautiful places and so high prices in this summer... This restaurant isn't the cheaper but it is the best choice to get a very good meal with very nice service in a clean and simple place paying a fair price. We went many... More

The prices are not very different from São Paulo. +-500 pesos per person for a meal with a drink. The staff is very gentle and polite (as usual in Uruguay), it's close to the Porto, the food is great. I got chicken with mashed sweet potatoes and a funghi sauce that was mind-blowing. My friend got the "Angosto"-something (or was... More

We are new to Uruguay, and Olivia provided us a delightful plate of fresh food, at a great price in an airy outdoor space, right over the water. Stop in, order salad and don't miss the house made crackers.
