Faultless service and cuisine. The scenery is breathtaking! Very romantic. Take away a souvenir bottle of olive oil. Good enough to eat with bread alone....locally produced

Ensure you make a booking with the restaurant when you book the hotel- it can get fully booked. Service was very good. Food was locally sourced and had plenty of cultural influences.

Service attentive without cloying, food delicious, as you might expect, and sitting on the beautiful, decoratively-lit patio with the night sounds and quiet murmurs from other diners was enchanting....

Nice atmosphere inside as it was October. Lovely building and gardens. We had arroz and foie gras and turbot and sea bass. Very nice. Slightly too rich and Michelin type fussiness. Limited offer of wines by the glass. Good service. Friendly. Expensive for what it was with a glass of wine. 170 euros. No dessert. Would I go again. Probably... More

Dear Ray B, Many thanks for your visit and review. We like to hear from our guests and I apologize if we were not able to present you all the wines on offer, as it is really not a limited offer we have, being most probably one of the most extensive wine lists in the island, with almost 500 different...

Candle-lit elegance is what you first see when you eat either inside or out in this wonderful place. The tasting menus and wine were all worth asking advice about from the staff and tasted wonderful.

A wonderful experience! Met our expectations and more! Suckling pig was fantastic!! Inclement weather meant that we were unable to sit outside, but we considered that to be an advantage as the old olive mill was beautiful.

Description
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.
