“Beautiful food and friendly service”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Booked a table after walking past, had a look through the window and it looked a lovely little restaurant. That evening we were met with a smile by the manager, and made to feel very welcome. We had 4 dishes first, they were amazing so decided to get another 4 in. They also played two of my favourite albums in the back ground, James Blunt and Paulo Nutini.

The food, service, and restaurant were 5*. We will certainly be returning next time we visit Exmouth.

I have reviewed this restaurant previously but after a recent visit wanted to hop back on and just confirm again what a little gem this is for Exmouth. Food and service totally top notch, keep up the good work guys!

“Welcome surprise”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Called in here on spec and we had a brilliant evening. All of our choices were excellent (and we had to re-order some to check again for quality!). Had a great night here and would highly recommend El Olivio to anyone touring in E Devon. Do not go past without paying a visit!.

“Excellent food in small portions”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

I saw this place recommended, so I thought I'd give it a try. The restaurant was small and tidy, and therefore not too hectic. There was a good selection of food available listed on their boards - so presumably changing regularly. I couldn't fault the service in any way. The food was excellent, well cooked, and perfectly seasoned, but the portion sizes were very small.... I guess it would have been better if I felt like spending more that evening, but over £17 gone, including a beer and 3 dishes, I left feeling like I had eaten little more than an appetiser... I felt a little dissapointed as a result, given that the food itself was so enjoyable. That said, I would not let that desuade anyone from tryig this place - this was just my experience and opinion!
