Fabulous meal served by very friendly staff. Not inexpensive, but well worth it for that special occasion. Try the rack of lamp. Be sure to book in advance and note that they are closed on Mondays.

Superb view, romantic and a wine list to make the Italians jealous. We began our birthday celebration with a round of Dom Perignon........then we loved the garden beets and local asparagus. Our entrees, Branzino and the Kobe beef short ribs were beyond. They forgot to serve the toasted quinoa and then they tossed out the balance of the branzino we... More

The Inn & Spa is a fabulous place and Olivella is the signature restaurant within in. The setting is magnificent, ask for a table with views, either in the enclosed area next to the balcony or on the... More

Great buffet breakfast. Fantastic waffles and omelettes. Nice little spread. One of the few places that will also provide almond milk which was great. That view though was breathtaking and made the breakfast quite possibly one of the best ever.
