Description: Inspired in the trilogy of the Mediterranean diet (bread, wine and olive oil), O:liva is the mastered by the recognized chef Nicolas Gomez. The executive chef has created a menu that unites flavors, recipes and experiences from towns in the Mediterranean border such as Spain, France, Italy and Morocco. Olive Oil, known as the nectar of the Mediterranean, plays one of the main characters in the scene together with rich traditions and diverse landscapes. O:liva is presented as an art form that, like wine, has multiple varieties, flavors and its own trade secrets.

small and extraordinary restaurant found in the O:live hotel - best meal I had in San Juan.
First night I had the Salmon, amazing dish. The caprese salad was a total surprise - it was FRIED and delicious.

My husband and I love fine dining. I was looking for a nice place to take him for his birthday and this was absolutely perfect. It is completely new, very nice ambiance and excellent service. Food was amazing. It is a small cozy restaurant, perfect for a date, a romantic dinner or hang out with friends.

We visited O:liva last night (Saturday) during their prime time dinner hour. The place was packed with two large parties, one of over 20 people, and all 4 smaller tables were full as well. We were immediately struck by the lovely decor, and the welcoming staff. We had to wait a few minutes for our table, but we didn't mind at all because it gave us a chance to take in the space, which is quaint, romantic, and definitely gives a sense of the Mediterranean.

We started our meal with their homemade bread with olive oil, which was spectacular, and set the stage for a delicious meal. We ordered the meatballs and squid appetizers, followed by the gnocchi and the lamb with couscous. Everything was sublime, delicious, and perfectly executed.

I didn't order dessert because I was too full, but I wish I had tried the chocolate cake. Also, I asked the waiter to bring me a non-fruity white wine, and he delivered to perfection. The wine was great, the service attentive, and we had a wonderful experience. Will definitely return and add to our date night rotation!
