“Lovely garden restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Not a huge fan of Greek food, however, the meals were delicious! Great service and a friendly cat. Ate in the garden section, which is lovely. Reservations are set for 6:30 or 8:30, which works quite well. Didn't care for my martini, but should've known better...my bad. Great experience.
Cash only!!!!

“Best place to eat on Isla Mujeres”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

After 5 days of Mexican food I was ready for something else... While wandering around the island after watching the most gorgeous sunset on the beach, we stumbled upon the best eating experience on the island (at least in my humble opinion) - Olivia restaurant. We shared a delicious Nicoise Salad for an appetizer, chicken in olives and albondigas for main course and split a delightful cup of chocolate mousse for desert. We each had a glass of excellent French red wine and I had the most amazing decaf late. I believe the total bill, including tip, was smth like $50 to $55 USD which was amazing value by North American standards. Too bad we had to leave the following day otherwise we would have gone back to Olivia for another dinner or two.
