We discovered this amazing restaurant last November when we were staying on the island. We were just back again with 4 of our good friends. We told them "if we do nothing else while we are here, we need to have dinner at Olivia". Our friends were amazed by the food, the service and the genuine care and pride the... More

Starters and mains were delicious, and the baklava to go, did the trick after our meal. The service was impeccable and the restaurant very romantic and peaceful. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great meal on the island. We lucked out because we didn't have a reservation, but they graciously seated us as a table opened up. FYI,... More

From beginning to end - appetizers to dessert - this was a deliciously memorable meal. The chicken with olives is a must. We will surely return.

After almost a week on Isla Mujeres we were in the mood for a change from Mexican food and fresh fish dishes fine as they might be. This place filled the bill brilliantly. The food was top rate Middle Eastern fare. Service was great. Surroundings were very romantic should a couple be interested. To top it off, the prices were... More

One of the best restaurants on the island, without question! Our group went back because we wanted to try other dishes. Loved the food and service! You must try this place.

My boyfriend and I dined at Olivia about a week or so ago whilst vacationing on charming Isla Mujeres. It was one of the stand-out dining experiences of our trip. The ambiance is lovely, the staff friendly and capable, and the food delicious. We started with the trio of tastes appetizer served with their homemade bread. Delish! I had the... More

After tiring myself of Mexican food, I decided to eat here for a change of pace. I did not make a reservation, so the table I had was not in the garden area, but I didn't mind. I started with a white bean salad that was decent, nothing fantastic, but not bad. For my entree, I was having trouble deciding... More

We ate here our last night on Isla because of the great reviews. I must say we were disappointed. The food was only average and our main dishes of moussaka and spanakopita were average and surprisingly with little in the way of garnishes. In fact the moussaka was the only item on its plate. We had to ask the waiter... More

One of the best meals we had on the island. Must make reservations. Service is great and atmosphere peaceful. Had chicken with olives, awesome. It's been a must stop for us while on vacation in Isla Mujeres.
