“Little gem!”
Reviewed 25 May 2010

Went there without knowing what to expect. And we were positively surprised! The food was awesome (mmm there cheese selection is divine & the serrano is heavenly!) and the cocktails were fresh & delicious. Friendly service & reasonable priced. Quite loud music but that just adds to the Spanish vibe. Met Julio the owner who bought us a shot while he talked about his place. A very good experience. We would definitely go there again!

“Nice surprise”
Reviewed 26 March 2010

When my girlfriend and I couldn't get into the Mercury Lounge due to a sold out show, we decided to pick a new place, and just give something a try. Stumbled down Houston street and saw Oliva on the corner. It was just great! Had the Paella, Filo wrapped portabella mushrooms and the grilled octopus; with a grande pitcher of red Sangria (made the right way!!). Service was impeccable, food was outstanding, prices were reasonable. We were there fairly early on a Thursday night, and it was not very crowded. By the time we left, the place was packed and the live music was beginning. I could imagine it gets QUITE LOUD in there, as it's a small place. Lively and fun!!!!

“Great little restaurant. Lively...”
Reviewed 27 January 2010

Great little restaurant. Lively atmosphere. Live music and people dancing. The tapas was delicious. Recommend the tortilla with chorizo and the bread crumbed olives.
