The setting is truly beautiful. The staff are teriffic, very efficient but relaxed, courteous and fun...and there is a lot of them! No stuffiness here...great atmosphere. However, it is very expensive and there are no "bargains" on the wine list. But it is comprehensive, varied...More

El Olivo Restaurante is a refurbished 16th century olive press, offering a superb menu and equally an impressive wine list. Situated in the beautiful Belmond La Residencia, this is perhaps one of the finest restaurants in Mallorca. The outdoor area, lit by candlelight is a supremely romantic dinner setting.
