Our Story

It was October 10th 2010 when Kim Ranzijn (Loosdrecht, The Netherlands) and Carlos Pardo (Málaga, Spain) started a new project in Nerja. A restaurant with a mediterranean soul, a place where every detail has been thought about so you can enjoy your experience to the fullest. Since its opening, Restaurante Oliva has not stopped evolving. In 2016 it got the recommendation in the Michelin Guide and since then it has been rewarded with this recognition every year. In 2021 Restaurante Oliva moved to a new location at Plaza de España, to a more spacious and centric place.

Restaurante Oliva is recommended in some of the best international travel & restaurant guides
