We absolutely loved our meal at La Oliva, and cannot recommend this experience enough. A huge tasting menu with five accompanying wines, all for €38 each. There were only three parties in the room when we visited, including ourselves, and Fransisco took great care to...More

This is my second visit to Fransisco, and I sincerely doubt that it will be my last. I love how passionate he is about creating a unique and flavorful experience for each of his guests. We walked away full, educated about Spanish cuisine, and grateful...More

In the evening, Francisco Lillo Roldan transforms his small gourmet shop into a cozy community of diners who gather to sample the excellent olive oils and local wines that he provides as tastings, along with a wide array of tapas freshly prepared (right then, right...More

We dined in a small deli with only 2 other couples - initially at separate tables, but as the evening and conversation flowed the tables were joined. Host, Francisco was knowledgeable and passionate about local food, and seemed to have an encyclopaedic knowledge of spanish...More
