Description: For more than ninety years, Ojai Valley Inn & Spa has evolved with the times but throughout it all, The Inn has maintained a connection to its locality – especially through its food. Olivella represents the epitome of this sense of place. A restaurant in Ojai Valley with refined simplicity; showcasing the best each season has to offer, suitable for any occasion. Olivella’s valley-to-table culinary program is supported by the local Ojai valleys, ranches, orchards, farms and ocean waters. We embrace the seasonal whims of the region, focusing on the bounty of year-round produce provided by the California Central Coast. Chef Andrea Rodella is proud to present a dining experience featuring the best ingredients of California with dishes and techniques inspired by his Italian heritage.

The dining room is quiet but the service and food excellent. My favorite thing about Maravilla is the El Jefe--a spicy tequila drink that is no longer on cocktail menu but they will still make for you. The chicken, fish and short ribs were all good. The banana pudding with ice cream was delicious.

The menu is not extensive, but the selections are well designed and beautifully presented - the beet salad was to die for!

The beet and goat cheese salad was AMAZING....and the lavender creme brûlée is something I would go back to have

First, be aware that we spent about $100 per person all told, including appetizers, entress, desserts and beverages (wine for 1, the rest non-alcoholic). So this is a splurge. Also, be sure to make a reservation in advance, especially during popular times at the Ojai Valley Inn resort. Eating at Maravilla is a real treat, as this restaurant offers deliciously prepared gourmet food, in an elegant atmosphere, with very professional service. This restaurant, in the Ojai Valley Inn, is well worth a visit if you are a foodie or for a special occasion.

We heard a lot of news about this restaurant and our expectations were high. The food was good but not great. Like everything else at Ojai Resort, the service was impeccable and the level of attentiveness is unparalleled.
