We had two great meals; spanokopita, mousaka, Shepard salads with beef skewer, and mixed grill. Delicious. Lovely atmosphere, thatched roofs, cozy corners. Great Margheritas. Like everywhere on the island it's very casual. Highly recommended.

My husband suggested we try this restaurant based on the sign out front that says, "Mediterranean Cuisine" because he knows how much I love Greek, Italian, and Middle Eastern food. He was right on target! We didn't have a reservation, and it had not occurred to us that a reservation might be necessary, but we were still seated in a... More

Definitely didn't expect Mediterranean food in Mexico but on a reccomendation we went. Have lived in multiple cities w great food and traveled in the Mediterranean. This is good by any standard. Delicious Mediterranean dips and cheese. Can't reccomend enough. Also great salads. Had the coffee martini (or something named similar). Absolutely delis. Great for meat eaters too!

Delicious Greek food at a reasonable price. The staff are english speaking and very friendly. This place was very busy. We were lucky enough to get a table (we went about 6pm) so I recommend booking ahead.

I'm so glad I went here, the food was so good and the staff were far the friendliest on the island with the customers. They try and juggle everyone in that comes for a table. I had a yummy kebab Thanks guys

As frequent visitors to Isla, we always look forward to dinner at Olivia! Who knew the best Mediterranean food we have ever had would be found on a tiny little island in the Mexican Caribbean. We have never had a bad meal or experience here and dinner in the back garden is magical! Looking forward to several dinners here when... More
