The wine pairings, along with the fresh fish choices are amazing, as is the terrace location over looking the valley. A must do in Deia.

Coming to Palma for so many years we've never eaten here. We did have drinks at sunset - but always decided it's too expensive to dine here. But we decided to give it a try for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. The location...More

We dined at El Olivio again this year. Obviously the setting remains delightful but the menu hasn't moved on at all - may be they have a very loyal clientele that would be outraged if it evolved from the 1990s. However, we were left with...More

El Olivo Restaurante is a refurbished 16th century olive press, offering a superb menu and equally an impressive wine list. Situated in the beautiful Belmond La Residencia, this is perhaps one of the finest restaurants in Mallorca. The outdoor area, lit by candlelight is a supremely romantic dinner setting.
