This is one place where the Yelp review lives up to its five star rating. Make your reservation now! From the moment we walked in all the way through to our farewell our group of four the experience was absolutely enchanting and entertaining. It's a small restaurant with maybe only eight or nine tables so a reservation is highly recommended.... More

We went to this quirky restaurant recently during a short trip to Nice, it is tucked away in the Old Town as most of the best restaurants are. There is a limited menu and you have to be fairly flexible in your tastes. The owner is real character and he certainly adds to the overall atmosphere. He describes each dish... More

Very good home made and simple meal. It is a v popular place so try to eat for lunch and as close to 12.30p as possible when it opens. Expect to be there for over 2 hours even if you come early as the proprietor takes a while to enjoy chatting to his customers. You're not meant to understand the... More

During the day Oliviera is a shop selling olive oils. At lunchtime and in the evening it is a small restaurant run by the owner who takes great delight in his quirky menu. My husband had a wonderful rabbit dish, I had pasta with Black Death trumpet mushrooms, a delicious dish. Even the desserts have olive oil dripped over them!!... More

We had again a really good evening at Oliviera last saturday. The ingredients are so fresh and well adjusted with the olive oil lifting the taste level, to something which is different to anywhere else. There is also no other place where we have experienced a similar close contact with our hosts than here. Just super bon!!

I don't know where to start. Maybe I should start from how lovely, polite, knowledgeable and overall awesome the owner of this restaurant is? Just by hearing him describe the different dishes and olive oils you can tell how passionate he is about his job. My and my husband were also discussing between each other about how happy this man...

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Nice. My husband and I liked it so much the first day we went for lunch, that we actually went back the next day for lunch, too! The owner is the sweetest man who is passionate about his food and olive oils. He provided us with rationales for why he... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Nice, both in terms of food and experience! Great service, amazing starter courses (caprese salad and avocado salads were phenomenal!) and great entrees! Owner was very accommodating and so friendly. Definitely make sure to visit this place!

First thing first: You need to make a reservation if you are planning to have dinner here. 3-4 tables inside and 4-5 outside makes this a very small, and popular, restaurant. The owner and his wife makes the food, serve the food, chat/drink wine with the customers - the do basically everything and the LOVE it! They have a heart... More

We walked past and we're lucky enough to get a table, but would recommend that you try to book in advance! The food is simple but oh so delicious, and the host himself enhances the experience!!! So knowledgeable and passionate about his different oils and food. We bought some of the excellent olive oil before leaving the place after the... More
