Having eaten our evening meal in our hotel we decided to take a stroll to Cala Bona harbour. We called in to L'Oliva for an evening drink. The restaurant was busy and there was a nice atmosphere around the place. The food appearing from the kitchen looked and smelt good. A decision was made to make a return visit next day for a tapas lunch. All we can say is a third visit followed as would a fourth if our holiday had not come to an end. The food is high quality and although a tad more expensive than the "chips with everything" brigade it is well worth the money. As an example the prawns are out of shell and with the dark tract removed. You have to pay for this attention to detail. L'Oliva is well worth a visit (or two)............

We had a nice lunch at this restaurant, the tapas is good but it's not as authentic as La Granada just along the road - this place is obviously more geared up for tourists, which a lot of Brits probably love, but we prefer somewhere more typically Spanish.

We ate here on 2 occasions and were very impressed on both occasions.
The first was tapas for lunch and the second time for evening meal( recommend the fillet steak and prawns).
Must also mention on the first visit, on paying the bill I didnt notice 2 10euro notes stuck together, but the waiter came after me and gave me the 10 euros back.
Cannot think of too many places that would have done that!!

We visited on the first night of our holiday wanting a taste of Spain. The restaurant was very busy which is always a good sign and we had to wait a few moments to get a high chair. The food was of a good standard and we loved the Gambas Pill Pill (prawns in garlic, chilly and olive oil). It wasn’t the cheapest meal we ate over the course of the week but was one of the best.

We had much better tapas other places, and the service was poor. Finding a decent size caterpillar in the salat did not make things better, and the waitress did not even offer us a new salat. We did not have to pay for the one we got, but were still not impressed.
