Just off Hidalgo St you will find this hidden treasure. A nice, romantic escape. The food and service were impeccable. Be sure to try the short ribs.

We we cruising with our golf cart, looking for a place for dinner. We decided on this Mediterranean restaurant after checking the menu. We started with the appetizer sampler. Great choice. The rest of the meal was equally as good. Our waitress was especially friendly. I can't wait to go back to the island, just to eat there again!

Nice setting in the centre of Isla Mujeres. The food is ok but nothing to die for. I tried the meatballs that were ok. They however came with an absolutely uninteresting loaf of bread. The service was a bit pretencious (but I can't say that they were rude either).

I was skeptical about going to a Mediterranean restaurant during my Mexican vacation, but I have never been so glad to be wrong! Olivia is an utter delight. In fact, it was so good we ended up going back twice in the course of our weeklong vacation. I truly cannot remember the same time I've gone to a restaurant twice... More

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.

There fresh bread... More

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.
