While on holiday we decided to have lunch by the harbour at the Oliva bar. we ordered the Tapas, We did not have any choice of the five tapas dishes that were on offer, the potions were small and not worth the money that we paid. We will not go there again.

We loved this restaurant, enough to go there 5 nights out of 10. Service is good, food is well prepared and the service is friendly and efficient.

We have eaten lots at Cafe Bar Oliva over the last few years and have never had a bad meal there. The Tapas is superb... We stayed at Sa Coma in October instead of Cala Bona and walked to Cala Bona especially to have Tapas for lunch. The Risotto balls were divine with sweet chilli sauce as were the meat... More

Visited this place for the first time and would never go back, And would strongly recommend no one eats here, food was dreadful and not cheap, worst thing though was the unbelievable attitude of the staff, I've eaten in many places in my time and have never experienced this approach to customer service aggressive bordering on nasty us how I...

We have eaten here for 6 years & by far this has always been our favourite restaurant. We ate here tonight as our first night in Cala bona & the food was awful. Once we had our food no staff were visible and when they appeared the staff were extremely defensive when we said our food wasn't very good. The... More

Please note that we have asked for this comment to be removed as it is completly unfounded. We are the same staff that have been working in this restaurant for the past 9 years, and we have never seen you before. We found you to be very rude with our employees and your behaviour was not appropriate. If there was... More

I really enjoyed my visit. The food and service were really good and my meal of pasta with a mushroom sauce was delicious. I would certainly recommend this restaurant. I also had a cava sangria which was delicious and quirkily served in a "drinking jar". I will visit again next time I'm in Cala Bona - and there will be... More

good food, recommend the deep fried prawns in sweet chilli sauce, together with garlic bread and griddled potato.

Visited the restaurant based on reviews on Tripadvisor. TApas was the worst we've ever had. The grilled prawns had to be sent back because they were undercooked and raw. The chorizo was tough and tasteless and the sauce was a mucky brown goo, horrible. At least the potatoes were OK in the patatas bravas, but the tomato sauce was like... More

Sorry you didn;t enjoy your experience with us , but we need to comment on some of your points. Firstly the Aubergine is deep fried as written and descriped in the Menu. We make all sauces in house ie Bravas, Alioli, Pepper etc.. so if it tasted manufactored maybe we should market it! The mucky brown goo as you called... More

We called in here one lunch time for a drink, to cool off from the midday sun. It was a lovely relaxing atmosphere, overlooking the Harbour. We ended up having the special of the day, which was a variety of tapas, very tasty and a reasonably priced.

My family and I went to Olivia's twice whilst we were in Cala Bona and was not disappointed. We also came here last year and it's good to see that the quality and service is still there. There were 4 of us and we had a range of food from steak, mussels, fish & chicken kebabs all of which were... More
