We had the course of the day. It is average. The mussels and fish overcooked and placed in too much tomato sauce/soup. The small appetizers were very nice. In all fairness, the normal menu seemed nice which we might go back and taste.

This is not an Italian restaurant but an authentic Danish one. The staff know their 'onions' and their wines. The menu is limited to what is available fresh and I find that is a good sign. We were not disappointed.

Very well prepared, with interesting different tastes, and a regular changing menu. Charming interior in the rstaurant. The garden is a perfect place for summer lunches, serving both more traditional dishes as well as some with a bit more "new cuisine" .

Under-played and over-delivering as ever! Excellent dishes and great house-wine. Thank you Jacob and Rina for one more great evening at Oliva :-)

Lovely outdoor dining on a hot evening. Good service, pleasant people and well prepared food. This was not a gourmet experience, but simple good food from a menu that offered a variety of choices but not an expansive list. Would find this place again when in Hornbaek.

We ate here after a terrible experience at Hansens. Very good food in nice surroundings. We both had marinated venison to start, then steak and plaice respectively. Plus two beers some excellent green olives on the house. 700DKr for a pretty good meal for two. A good choice if you are in Hornbaek and don't want to spend quite as... More

I liked the decor and was eagerly awaiting our food which was promptly served. However the food was just OK and was expensive for what we had. I wouldn't rush back.
