    We have been to Olivia's may be 6 times since it opened. From originally being 'on the ball' it now appears to be a lottery as to what service and food are experienced. Last night for us was the absolute last time we will spend our money there. The service yet again was appalling, we had to chase them to be served, starters not served until 1 hr 15 mins after ordered and the staff looked confused about this when questioned as to why it was taking so long. The food was the last straw, out of 9 mains 4no went back, 3 of which were undercooked, raw pork! They replaced the pork dishes 15 mins later and all still not cooked. They reuined a family and friends night out. Offering free drinks which we did not want nor accept was not the answer. Elliot you have the staff why are they so badly organised. What a shame, we live locally for half the year and now we are finished with Olivia's - adios

    My husband and me dined at Olivia's on Saturday night. We couldn't rate it highly enough- the staff are so friendly and on the ball with the service. The food was delicious too- as well as the cocktails! Definitely one of the best restaurants on the costa Del sol. Can't wait to return!

    Despite being drawn to the restaurant by it's television star status, I have to say the food was very good, the service in keeping with the highest standards and my wife and i had a truly magical evening.

We all had the best night of out of our holiday. Highly recommended ...do not miss this restaurant .. book now you won't be disappointed.... no problem with the discount ... five star plus... can't wait to go again to try the Caribbean chicken. My sister said it's the best chicken dish she has ever eaten ... thanks for a fantastic evening.

    Lovely restaurant. Fabulous setting. Good menu. The only thing that let it down for me was the staff. Nowhere near attentive enough. Ended up waving my arms in the air several times in the evening.. wanting to order another drink.. asking for bread.. asking for olives which never arrived.. asking to order a desert.. its a real shame. Food was great. Atmosphere was lovely. Great singer.

    I booked via The Fork online prior to our holiday and received a phone call on the morning from Olivia 's just to confirm our booking. Service was excellent and the food was lovely, we had a sharing platter of meats to start and I had the stonebass and my partner the Thai green curry, Michael Buble tribute act was playing that night and he was really entertaining had everyone up dancing all in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. It was quiet for a Tuesday but the season is nearly over in October. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and return.

    Dessert menu could be more exciting. No marzipan flavour in the choux. . Great buzz for a monday. We were not advised that sushi chef was off Mondays when we booked it we would have come Tuesday.

    Food was great and not over priced and location was great too. Service a little slow and we weren't given the opportunity to order a dessert or asked if we wanted more drinks. It seemed like we were in the way so we got the bill, paid (including tip) and left. We did return on the evening for cocktails and the atmosphere was brilliant. The place was buzzing.

    Absolutely loved our time spent here. Great location with lovely decor. Best porn star martini ever and food was good. My only very mild critismn was if my second cocktail order was taken quicker I could of had time for one more. But overall and excellent place, almost perfect!! Would return and would recommend..

    The quality and service of the food was excellent and worth every penny. After paying the food bill and retreating into the bar area we had appalling service, ordered a round of cocktails at 54 euros and then a further order was forgotten, after a 20 minute wait I asked at the bar where the cocktails were to be told they would be 2 minutes, after a further 20 minutes still no cocktails so had to go a find who to pay at the desk and we left. This made the evening (which was excellent up to 11pm) disappointing as we were celebrating a birthday and would have been there dancing until the end.

    Atmosphere and setting was fabulous and the dj was excellent however the food was very poor for the amount they charged ! Felt you were paying for the name only ! If they are charging that much the food should be perfect !

    From arrival to departure, my wife and I were made to feel special. The staff were polite, attentive but not overbearing, the quality of the food was 1st class. Olivias did not disappoint on any level, a re-visit is in the diary.

    Having a friend arriving on a flight from Gatwick, we were 45 mins late for our table booking of 10pm. Although, a busy Saturday night we were lucky enough to still have a table for dinner outside. Food with the 50%off make the meal reasonable although without the voucher I would have to say, it is severely overpriced.

    Great evening. The wrong starters turned up as the waiter had input the details into your system incorrectly however the mistake was rectified quickly enough that it didn't spoil our table enjoying our starters together. Would definitely come again next time i'm in the area.
