Description: Main restaurant od the Hotel Vis à Vis, the Olimpo offers its delighted guests the quintessential Italian meal: dishes sublime in their simplicity, relying solely upon the exceptional freshness of the local Ligurian ingredients and upon the considerable expertise of the chef. A particular mention is due to the first class service that, together with the soft vibes, the attentively selected music, the courtesy and knowledge of the staff. Everything is interpreted in a modern key, with an avant-garde design, from the wooden ceiling with spot lights that give a "starry sky" effect, to the wide windows that open the sight to a unique panorama. In the summertime guests can enjoy the Deck Giunone outdoor restaurant, where are also organized also nice theme dinners and barbecues with music.

Food was ok and so were the staff, we just felt they were trying too hard to be more than they really were.

My wife and I had two great meals at this restaurant. The service couldn't have been better (very attentive and friendly, without being overbearing) and the view really is incredible if you reserve a window table as we did. The food was also very good, the highlight probably being the catch of the day which was cooked on the bone, and filleted in front of us before being served - yum. An evening meal here with wine is not cheap, but if you want a special meal out for two people and you are happy to spend over €100, this will be a real treat.

Staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. A set menu was available for forty euros which was good value, and there is an a la carte menu. For our meal whole fresh seabass and sea bream were offered. One customer had hers cooked in salt but you might need to request this as it did not seem to be on the menu. The fish was boned out and served at the table! which is such good theatre as well as being practical, as fish is much sweeter cooked on the bone, but bones are a nuisance. Stunning view. an amazing choice of sweets were served from the buffet.

Located on top of the Vis a Vis Hotel, this is one of the restaurant you and your friends will remember. Food, view, service and atmosphere are excellent.
Price are high but not over the top. In any case it is worthed, especially if you take a lovely lady with you. Orata alla ligure is a must.
