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.

I organized this event from US and was a bit scared about it. But at the end, we got everything I wish for. Thanks to Delphine Russo. She was absolutely amazing and helpful. We couldn't... More

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

We have eaten here before and enjoyed this experience fully again. Exceptional service, exquisite food, beautifully romantic and such a wonderful evening. The speciality orange parfait is a must for desert. Absolutely wonderful.

We had dinner the first night at the "Award Winning" El Olivo. Beautiful setting. Problem was that the dish listed as the "Rack of Lamb" was only ONE rib of meat. One rib!!! I thought I would say something when the waiter asked us how our meal was, but he never asked. That rib of meat was delicious but it... More

We got engaged here 15 years ago and came back with our 12 year old son. Setting was still stunning. Very romantic. Staff very attentive. We went for a la carte rather than 5 or 7 course tasting menu. Food was delicious as you'd expect for the price. Wine is very expensive. When booking by email I said it was... More

Description
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.
