We ate here twice during our weeks stay in Oliva. The first night my husband was a bit disappointed as his pork chop turned out to be pork spare ribs but my veal escalope was delicious. We returned and had menu del dia, amazing value €9 for bread, starter, main and drink followed by coffee. I had salmon and cheese... More

Lovely food from either the a la carte, tapas or menu del Dia (ask what is on especially on a Thursday) Particularly like the fried chicken livers and the 'delights of Elche'

The menu, food and service was first class. The only person who cooks chicken livers better than here is me. Well done. Had a great table outside which was far enough away from the busy road. We will defiantly be back.

This is a typical Spanish bar frequented by the locals. We ordered a large selection of tapas and they were all really good, although the squid was a bit tasteless. They have a selection of beers. As it was a really hot day the owner shut all the doors and put the air con on for us.

Excellent food, 3 course lunch included an bottle of wine and bottled water for under £10 per head. Good atmosphere, full of local people. Very welcoming despite our lack of Spanish language. Really tasty food

Always a very tasty bit of tapas with your drink & a warm welcome for all at Bar California. Situated on a corner so there's a good, breezy outside space and plenty of room inside (and for your shopping bags) before the haul up the hill to the old town where we stay when visiting Oliva. There's free wifi too,... More

On recommendations we went good tapas, very reasonably priced, good service very clean. Ideal for after shopping trip on the way home. Bit noisy as close to N332, but perfect pit stop. Will definitely return.

A local establishment with a nice enough atmosphere. Service was slow, but it often is in Spain, and the food was fine.
