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

This has to be one of the most romantic and beautiful restaurants. The service, the food, the ambiance and the wonderful village of Deia makes a visit here, despite the cost, a memorable one, in a positive way. We visited first time 1992 and have continued to come back ever since so yes, we are very pleased and satisfied also... More

We came here for afternoon tea (and drinks). It is a fabulous location and stunning views, I can't comment about the food as we only had tea and a glass of wine but the service was excellent and the location is great, however, it is quite expensive no matter how you look at it.

Four of us enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. We were well looked after and had good food and wine. The restaurant has a separate vegetarian menu which was appreciated by one of our group who often has to make do with pasta when eating out. We don't visit expensive restaurants that often but appreciate it when we do - El... More

Lovely setting , very romantic . I didnt love the food and the service was a little bit annoying , had to ask quite a few times for the same thing and sitting with empty wine glass so had to pour my own , no big deal but not what you expect .

Ulisses M, Director General at El Olivo, responded to this review

Dear salli G, Many thanks for your review, following your recent visit. I can not agree more with you, we have most probably one of the nicest terraces in the whole Tramuntana area. Definitely it is not our standard regarding the service and this will be addressed with the respective department head. For us is a big deal and should... More

You will see many famous people who like to use this place like Bob Geldoff, Phil Collins, Nigel Benn tell he moved to Australia and the late Princess Diana and Dodi. This is the top place to be so expect the best food and service, but you will have to pay for it

I was absolutely blown away by this place. We arrived before sunset and had the luxury to sitting at the edge of the terrace over looking the beautiful mountains and olive groves around the hotel. Our waiter was professional and friendly without being OTT, the food was delicious and it was a fabulous night. I'll be back....

Thank Lou A

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.
