Decided to call in to have lunch in this restaurant today. Met at the door by a waiter who gave us such a dirty look and couldn't even bring himself to say hello. Menus we're put on the table with such indifference that we even considered waking out. Needless to say the food was awful and overpriced. You would think in such a small place that depends on tourism they could do better.
I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone. Total rubbish .

We visited El Olivar on Sunday 17th November, the waiting staff were curt to the point of being rude. Why in such a small place that depends on tourism do they do this? I had Spanish Omelette that was bland & unseasoned, my wife had Ravioli that was out of a tin “Heinz” We will never go back to eat there again & recommend trying one of the other many restaurants in this beautiful village.

We ate here twice in the evening during our one week Mijas trip. The Sole Olivar was beautiful and the BBQ food well cooked . Service was generally good. We would go back.

The food was ok. The waiter forgot my wine order and had to ask it another time when I had already eTen half of my meal. The waiter didnt speak any extra word and seemed to be fed up with foreign customers.
