The restaurant looks like a picture out of a fairytale book. The views are breathtaking. Olive trees. Candles everywhere. Stunning. The food was opulent. Rich in flavour. And the staff was very attentive. Our baby dropped her pacifier. We only noticed it when the waitress brought it to us - washed and on a plate. Great experience!

I have been many times as part of my annual visit to Mallorca and would quite simply say this is probably my favourite restaurant in the world....and I've been to a few. I like to sit under the olive tree and stare back to the steps to the hotel......they are my stairway to heaven. Superb place!...going again next week for... More

Excellent international cuisine in a beautiful setting. On one evening they accommodated us with a table overlooking the valley by special request for a birthday celebration. Service was very attentive but not intrusive.

Beautiful setting for a fantastic meal service and food can not be faulted yes it's a bit on the expensive side probably the dearest meal we have ever had in Majorca but so worth it. Can not wait to return next year.

Glorious setting, good service, some exceptional cooking. Soller red prawns not up to the hype and absurd at €40 for a starter. Lamb, pork and Turbot were all outstanding. A vast, strong wine list which is only really limited by your budget. Overall a lovely destination restaurant but be prepared to spend €150 per head without getting silly with the... More

El Olivo Restaurante is a refurbished 16th century olive press, offering a superb menu and equally an impressive wine list. Situated in the beautiful Belmond La Residencia, this is perhaps one of the finest restaurants in Mallorca. The outdoor area, lit by candlelight is a supremely romantic dinner setting.
