Description: Restaurant with a modern creative Andalusian cuisine, with a solid traditional base but constantly experimenting with new tastes, textures, techniques and products. The wine list includes wines from all around Spain. The restaurant is very close to Balcón de Europa, in the center of Nerja and has a private sunny terrace.

Excellent food, good menu. The staff was very nice and very helpful also with our children. I think, that the restaurant has a good price/value ratio. The food representation is beautiful, I really liked the pot flower-like black olive covered garlic butter and the parsley sorbet.

It is worth to take a detour if you are traveling in Andalusia.

Myself and my family are here on Christmas Day and I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. The food was exceptional, the service was impeccable and the atmosphere was superb. I cannot rate this restaurant highly enough.

Dined here lunchtime in late January and although quiet, the dining experience was first class.
Along with beautifully presented and delicious normal courses, several extra small dishes were served to enhance the meal.
The prices reflect the quality of the food, ambience and service. Overall highly recommended especially for a special occasion.

This restaurant deserves to be at the top of the list in Nerja. We were a group of four who had dinner last week, and all of us enjoyed the experience. I thought the menu to be adventurous but not excessively large, and the food was flawless. The attention to detail and presentation was excellent, but this did not compromise the size of the portions. Oliva is as good if not better than some michelin star establishments in the UK, the main difference being service, although attentive, not enough staff to be truly effective, however we will return for a repeat performance.

Absolutely fabulous restaurant. Food unusual, beautifully cooked and presented and the small extra courses were an unexpected treat. Service excellent, the staff took time to explain every dish without being patronising or pretentious. This restaurant compares favourably with Michelin starred restaurants I have eaten in and it is better value than most of them. Decor is lovely, well located in centre of Nerja. We were sorry that we only discovered this gem of a place just before the end of our stay in Nerja. Hope it remains very successful and we will definitely be back on our next visit.
