Welcome to Restaurant Oliva
Why Oliva? Oliva is the colour, the flavour and the landscape of Andalucia. Oliva captures the essence of Mediterranean cuisine in a single word. Oliva is a way of life. We love cooking. We love details. We love sensibility. Live, feel, taste and fall in love every day. Fall in love with the Mediterranean, fall in love with Oliva.
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
