“Best quality food around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Excellent, we have been to Eduardos for my birthday for every 4 years in a row. As we come to playa flamenca every year at about the same time. I checked trip advisor this year for good recommendations. Found this... And close to 'home' amazing good food... We went for the most expensive red wine 22euros, which was lovely. Amazing, well worth a visit And then a walk down to playa flamenca cc for a cocktail at sea breeze cocktail bar. Perfect night.

“Excellent dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Fig and Olive is a really lovely restaurant and run by a very nice young man Chris. The food was very good and I would recommend to anybody looking for a great meal in a very nice restaurant. I will go back next time I am back in La Zenia.

“Superb dining experience ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

What a gem of a restaurant hidden away in Playa Flamenca! Can't recommend eating here enough, such a lovely, friendly couple who run it and the atmosphere is wonderful. The food is superb, thank you for choosing to open this gem so near to our apartment.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

While out walking last year we came across The Fig & Olive restaurant , what a find, the food is wonderful and it is truly worth a visit. I can say it is the best food we have tasted so far on the Costa Blanca. We have returned several times, and due to the quality food we shall continue to visit each time we are in Orihuela Costa.

“One of Playa's best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

I visited the Fig and Olive for the first time with friends in April 2014 and due to the quality of the dining experience I have returned many times since. There are many restaurants in this part of Spain, few have this level of service and quality of food. I recently had three friends out for four days and they listed it the best of the four dining experiences. The restaurant is a little out of the way tucked in behind a small development, it is well worth a visit. The staff are friendly helpful and seem genuinely interested in ensuring you will (and had) a very good night. Loved the menu, and the fact they could adapt it to accommodate for food allergies. Good luck to the young chef!
