We have eaten at La Oliva pretty much on a weekly basis for the past few months. As you walk through the door you are always greeted with a warm smile. The food seems to get better and better!! Make sure to ask for the specials! We have had some of the best meat dishes we have ever had at a restaurant. The staff are so friendly and Jacob, Eros and Suzanna are always attentive. The Head Chef is a genius in the kitchen and even when he burnt his hand a few weeks back kept producing amazing food. We won't hesitate to recommend La Oliva to anyone.

Salut La Oliva!!

Went on the basis of the reviews here. The food was exceptional - a real treat with some interesting dishes - so much better than some of the chain tapas restaurants. Service was also excellent and the whole experience great value for money.

The only disappointment was the restaurant area - walls painted olive green and a dead miniature olive plant in the window and another window at the back which just made the place look grotty. Could be so much better with just a small amount of thought and investment.

Following two glowing recommendations, we visited La Oliva on Saturday night and were not disappointed. The menu included some of the popular tapas dishes, but also a good variety of dishes we hadn't seen before. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. We will certainly go back.

Went,without a reservation,on Saturday while on a weekend break. We had a drink at the bar while they sorted us a table. The choices on the menu were good and the specials described to us. The food came in stages as good tapas should and the quality of the ingredients was evident. My husband had the mussels which he said were the best he'd had. All dishes were superb.

Tried this restaurant with friends, very impressed with the standard of food and service. Returned with family to try more of the menu and was equally impressed. In a town that has many restaurants this offers something different and authentic. Food does not arrive all at once but I think this is a good sign that food is cooked to order and makes the whole dining experience social and not rushed. Highly recommend.
