On the evening before the Rotterdam marathon we wanted to enjoy the atmosphere of runners and supporters. After busy restaurants we looked at Oliva as a great place and indeed we had a table for two because earlier guests left early! Great food, wonderful wines accompanying the courses. Served well!

This restaurant gives the feeling one comes right home. They serve great food and the staff is very friendly and flexible. The food is not cheap, but the value for money is great

This Italian restaurant is located in the popular Witte de With straat. The staff is very friendly. They have an excellent wineselection. The food is excellent and the menu changes daily. If you want to try, make sure you have a reservation. (1 day before).

I always liked Oliva. Very fresh food, well prepared, good wine list, perfect atmosphere: relaxed but very suitable for a business diner. My guests this time were very difficult eaters and did not fancy anything on the menu. Cook managed to prepare a dish that made them happy. Thanks a lot, you saved my evening!!

We visited Oliva in 2015 during North Sea Jazz Festival and because we loved it so much, we booked for this year, as the restaurant does get full. We were pleased that the same high quality of food, wine and service has not changed. I choose the Chef’s 3 course “Surprise” menu and my wife chose from the menu. The... More
