Very nice atmosphere. Mediterranean/Greek. Appealing menu. Some dishes were great, some forgettable. A good night for red wine

This place was very beautiful inside. My wife and I thought it was one of the best spots on the island to have dinner.

My husband and I shared the Moroccan Tapas (the babaganush was the star! We could have eaten that with a spoon), a Roquefort salad and Moussaka. Plenty of food for two and all excellent. We don't eat mediterranean food often so we went with the advise of the waiter and the couple seated at the next table. Next time, would... More

Met friends for dinner and we shared appetizers and each ordered a different dish. They were all so flavorful and unique. It was a special evening with good friends, good food and great service. Thank you for a wonderful meal.

We ate here twice the week we were in Isla Mujeres. I got a chicken and olive dish that was excellent. My wife got the spanakopita which was also very good. The prices run a little higher than most in Isla Mujeres but it is worth it.

Our first time at Olivia, and we were impressed! Appetizers were wonderful, the feta cheese and Parmesan bread in particular. Entrees of spanakopita and pastilla were outstanding! Service was impeccable and friendly service from Josefina was greatly appreciated. The interior of the restaurant was warm and inviting and relaxing. We highly recommend Olivia, and will return often.

Thank irwinkva
