The service was great and the food was "awesome" really one of the best places to eat so far in Spain. We travel and eat out a lot and this was a great find. 5 stars to the chef and the waitresses and waiters. Nothing to fault the food here! If you don't go you will never know what you have missed out on!!!!!

The best restaurant we visited in Nerja, Oliva would survive in any European city. The food - fish,meat and a small vegetarian selection- is excellent; and the fine dining touches - the amuse- vouches and palate cleansers are what you would expect in tho elegant restaurant. Book in advance, and eat inside for the best experience.

We had an excellent food, good wine, knowledgable waiters, but unfortunately we were placed next to rather noisy company party, this made our experience not as good as it could have been.

We went after reading the reviews. The presentation of the food was great and the service was excellent but the food wasn't very good.
If you want your meat on a metal swing and herb butter in a tiny plant pot with pretend shoots this is the place for you but it is quite expensive and the food was pretty bland.

I have reviewed this place before, and this review confirms our liking for an excellent restaurant; the quality remains much the same and of a very high standard. The outlook from the small outdoors seating area is improved with the completion of a nearby building which seems to be equipped as a restaurant, but not open.

The quality of food remains very good indeed and service generally good, though on a busy evening it did get very slow at some stages and we felt there could have been more attention (we have previously only been at lunchtime) - but this was a small issue. As another recent reviewer noted, the price and quality of the wine is good - the house wine we have found consistently very drinkable and good value.

Recommended.
