We visited La Oliva on our second night in Granada, a beautiful city with amazing food that is incredibly reasonable. However, La Oliva was something special even for Granada. Francisco our host was charming and so attentive, a glass was never unfilled and he always...More

We stumbled upon Oliva last year in April when we were actually waiting for another restaurant to open. After full day of walking around Alhambra we were tired and hungry. We must have looked desperate , as Francisco proposed to take us in and serve...More

In my opinion no visit to Granada is complete without a visit to Fransisco at La Olivia. La Olivia is not a restaurant and should not be judged as one. It is a chance to meet a wonderful man and, for a couple of hours,...More

This is NOT a restaurant and it is so much BETTER this way. We had a great time with Francisco and his team. They prepared over 15 courses of some of the most delicious tapas I've ever had and paired them with 5 different wines....More

Really a true journey through spanish couisine! Francesco is using very basic spanish ingridients, but with his skill he takes out the full taste. His knowlwdge of mixing some, for us at least, strange tastes, along with traditional receipes is something that each true food...More

This is not a restaurant in the traditional sense. You feel like Francisco has invited you into his attic study, where he will make you tea and heat some canned soup on his hot plate and camping stove. But what you get instead is the...More

For the restaurant, because the meal has many courses, it lasts for a few hours. For this reason Francisco tells guests what time they need to arrive. I think we were asked to arrive at about 7pm
