“Good choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

It can be hard to find a place to eat in Punta. So many choices, so many beautiful places and so high prices in this summer... This restaurant isn't the cheaper but it is the best choice to get a very good meal with very nice service in a clean and simple place paying a fair price. We went many times and everytime we had the good sensation of being well served. The big beaf (lomo ancho) has meat for two hungry people. The wines are fine too and not overpriced like most places around.

“The food is great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

The prices are not very different from São Paulo. +-500 pesos per person for a meal with a drink.
The staff is very gentle and polite (as usual in Uruguay), it's close to the Porto, the food is great.
I got chicken with mashed sweet potatoes and a funghi sauce that was mind-blowing.
My friend got the "Angosto"-something (or was it ancho? I can't remember, but if you check the menu you'll know what I'm talking about) that was SPETACULAR.

“Great value great meal great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

We are new to Uruguay, and Olivia provided us a delightful plate of fresh food, at a great price in an airy outdoor space, right over the water. Stop in, order salad and don't miss the house made crackers.

“Super profesional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013 via mobile

We had lunch on the lovely terrace of Olivia Resto and found a small piece of glass in the lovely raviolis. Nothing happened and the reaction of the waiter was totally professional. Several times they excused them and wanted to bring something else. At the end they invited us for lunch. We will surely try again.... the food was so far good and the service excellent...

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

The food was excellent and so was the service. We went before the dinner rush and had a great table with a view of the pier.
