We went here for our 10 yr wedding anniversary and was greeted with a glass of prosecco each. We sat outside and opted for the taster menu with wine pairing - the staff, restaurant, food and drink oozed class from start to finish. Absolutely fantastic.

We came just for coffee and dessert. And it was perfect! We were even upset that had already had dinner. Strongly recommended!

Tuna main was very good and beautifully presented (if a little over-engineered). Wife didn't much like her lamb main - too bland - and without prompting the manageress took it off the bill. Amuse Bouche of Parmesan lollipops. Service was very professional - very attentive...More

Dining at Olive is not cheap, but the food and experience are well worth the price. From the moment you sit down you are offered bread, at least one amuse bouche, and the drinks list. We ate outside in the courtyard, which is behind the...More

Restaurant with a modern creative Andalusian cuisine, with a solid traditional base but constantly experimenting with new tastes, textures, techniques and products. The wine list includes wines from all around Spain. The restaurant is very close to Balcón de Europa, in the center of Nerja and has a private sunny terrace.
