Appetizers are fantastic - we loved the yoghurt cheese with pita bread and any of their eggplant dishes ! Waiter extremely helpful - knew the dishes well. Owner came by the table and his passion for good food came through ! We will make this a 'must' restaurant every time we visit Isla.

I made my reservation via email a month before arriving. This place is very popular and I wanted to ensure that I was able to sit out back in the garden. We ate here is 2016 but because we didn't make a reservation we ended up seated inside. The garden is a magical place and the service and food are... More

Olivia is a very nice restaurant, in the centre of Isla Mujeres but off the very busy main street. The atmosphere is relaxed and nice. Staff is very friendly.

I was looking fwrd to eating at Olivia after reading the reviews and seeing how cute the restaurant looked like from the outside. I was disappointed on every aspect from the person who greeted us who was very rude and unpleasant to the food that was blend and cold there are much nicer options on Isla.

This restaurant has the most beautiful inside courtyard. It was magical! Our food was excellent. I could have filled up on the fresh pita and hummus. I ordered a mixed plate from the grill which was a chicken and a lamb (?) skewer. Both tender and nicely seasoned. My husband had the short ribs which he also enjoyed. Great place... More

The meal in itself was totally worth the visit and the ambiance is fantastic. Just a hint if Insense burning adds a great experience to the meal. Service was outstanding and staff makes sure your dining experience is second to none. Definitely worth the trip

This Restaurant offers different food from 90% of what's served on Isla Mujeres which is Mexican, then Italian...the Mediterranean menu is delicious. The hummus, baba ganoush w/ cucumber slices are so fresh. The pita always warm & yummy & the salads are really good, too, especially the Roquefort & the entrees are varied & very tasty. Seating times are 6:30... More
