The restaurant is in a super location giving you the opportunity to gaze upon the 'freak show' (those of you who are familiar with Ibiza Town will know what I mean) as you eat. The food prices are fair when you take into account your location, though the wine is a tad on the expensive side of fair. Both food... More

We had been going to this place for the last 8 years and it was one of the best restaurants in Ibiza Town. What a complete change (for the worse) this year as the management has now changed and been taken over by a woman (Rita) who does nothing but stand in the doorway and watch the tables all night...

We had booked this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend, however we have since learned that it is under new ownership and what a disappointment. The restaurant was nearly full and we had booked for 10pm. Clearly customers, like ourselves are still coming due to the reputation it had. The restaurant doesn't really have curb appeal, looks cheap &... More

What ever you do don't mix up the old El Olivo with the new El Olivo mio. The old El Olivo was one of the best restaurants in Ibiza for many years and I never left it without that satisfying feeling that comes from a really nice meal and excellent service.The new El Olivo is quite another story. We had... More

We had a very pleasant dinner. Service was fast and nice. Maybe the Street a bit too crowded. We rather stay inside, more quiet and you do not have the impression of beeing on a window to be seen.

We have visited this Resturant each and every year we have been to Ibiza Our last visit yesterday evening, will be exactly that ! Over priced for very average food, too many tables.. The ruins of a perfectly good business Sad X.

Not worth the money 200 euros for 5 main courses and one bottle of cava . Very average food produced very quickly on ordering so guess sitting around waiting to be heated up? Vegetables tiny. Don't bother!

Dined here this evening and soon found out what a mistake we'd made. The food was incredibly overpriced. €31 for a bowl of pasta with three prawns. A complete rip off. By far the most expensive restaurant in this area and certainly not worth it. Food looked far better and better value for money at the surrounding restaurants. Seabass was... More

Long waiting for the reserved table (45 minutes); limited choice on menu (not every listed dish was available); food was cold when it was served; friendly but helpless staff - there are a lot of better options in town

We have visited this once lovely restaurant many times over the last 20 years and have always enjoyed our visits until now. We booked for 22.30, arrived only to be told we were an hour late !! We commented that the time must have been entered incorrectly and the waitress countered this with " we have a table even though... More
