We won't be back - pretentious overpriced food. Waitress delightful but there are better places to eat in Nerja, save your euros and eat elsewhere

The presentation and the composition of tastes well very well done. Service was a bit slow and some misunderstandings happened but overall a great meal in a pleasant environment. We could only get a table inside but this did not dampen the evening. Absolutely recommended.

We booked 4 days in advance after reading reviews. So glad we did. Lovely table on the terrace and we were very well looked after. We decided on the tasting menu and we were delighted. Delicious local dishes. The waiting staff were attentive but unobtrusive....More

My wife and I visited Olivia after reading reviews on line. We weren't disappointed at all. The quality of the food and accompanying wines was outstanding!

This was a place my friends visit fairly often. A quiet ambiance and much attention to detail. Loved the amuses bouches.

Restaurant with a modern creative Andalusian cuisine, with a solid traditional base but constantly experimenting with new tastes, textures, techniques and products. The wine list includes wines from all around Spain. The restaurant is very close to Balcón de Europa, in the center of Nerja and has a private sunny terrace.
