“Best Restaurant in the Torrevieja / Playa Flamenca area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

The restaurant is off the beaten track tucked away at the back of the Citrus Commercial Centre but you will be well rewarded for your efforts in visiting it. The food is delicious, well prepared and presented. The staff are very friendly and always make you feel welcome (I have eaten here many times since my first visit in Easter 2014). Chef Sean, who is also the owner, usually visits his guests tables during the night to ensure you are happy with your meal, and I can guarantee you will be when you visit.

“Nice but”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Went for a second visit this time the restaurant was too hot as no air con and ceiling fans not enough so uncomfortable. Food good but considering price not value plus some meals obviously plated well before other and had started to dry.

“Best quality food around”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
