La Oliva has always been one of my favourite restaurants in ibiza. This year did not disappoint. The food was top notch as always and our waiter Miguel was incredibly attentive and friendly. He recommended the tuna tataki which was phenomenal. I would highly recommend...this restaurant to anyone looking for good vibes and great food. I will be returning for sure.More

One of the most expensive restaurants in the old town. Lovely for people watching but we usually eat at La Torreta next door which has been a favourite for years. Service at La Oliva was slightly underwhelming. Despite the high prices the waiters never once...poured our wine or water. Had to ask for ice for the water and then lemon, neither of which should be necessary in such an expensive restaurant. The food was excellent and location great but despite that La Torreta is much more polished, actually less expensive but feels more special.More

I came here in May 2021 for dinner with friends, the food, service and ambience was incredible. All of the waiters were incredibly polite and efficient with every need being taken care of immediately. This is now my favorite restaurant in Ibiza and I will...most certainly be coming back! Highly recommend!More

I never normally write reviews, however I was compelled to praise not only the magnificent food but the service of the manager Miguel. I visited La Oliva with friends of mine for dinner whilst on vacation in Ibiza. Miguel was extremely attentive, warm, humble and...made myself and my friends feel that no request was too small or too big. His knowledge of wines, dishes and of the island was impressive and second to none. The attention to detail to our meal was exquisite and delicious. We were blown away. Thank you Miguel and team, we’ll be back very soon.More

Just walked out of this place due to the extremely rude manager - Paco. It was raining and we arrived early and were told a table in the corner was damp so we would have to wait for a different one. When our turn came,...we were offered the same damp table - and when I pointed that out to him the response was - take it or leave it. I could see available tables going to other customers. Pathetic way to treat a customer, these things matter and I hope management take notice - I would have expected a calmer and more respectful response, rather than just saying “it’s okay if you don’t want it - I am already busy”. We decided to go next door to a much better restaurant - La Torreta, and with extremely great and friendly service. Very disappointing - have been there before and food is good, but respect and basic customer service is equally important.More

The staff was very friendly and attentive. When we arrived we were seated inside because there was no more room outside. After a while there was a free table outside and they moved our table outside in between courses. The starters were excellent. Whe had...the Corvina Ceviche and Zuchinni gazpacho. Very tasty. We had the grilled squid as main course. The main course was also good, albeit a bit too plain. (not very much sauce or side dish). It still tasted very good though. All in all this is a very recommendable restaurant in a top location in Ibiza old town.More
