“Wonderful surprise”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

We ate in Oliva's twice in our month's stay in Nerja. It was in a class by itself.
Offered all the nice touches of a very good restaurant-amuse guele, palette cleansers between courses, foams,great breads and olive oil and interesting mains. Wines by the bottle and glass very good and reasonably priced for a restaurant of this quality.
Service was very good and chef out to present various courses.
A meal like this in Toronto would cost 2 and a half times as much.

“Food wonderful - shame we were the only diners”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

This is a restaurant that is going places- not cheap but still worth it. Fabulous presentation that in general complimented the main ingredients and not over the top (except the bread course which I won't spoil - its hilarious) Flavours good, quality excellent, original and stylish. Decor elegant. We dined Sunday lunch - alone. Shame. Will definitely go again and recommend to others.
