We've dined at Olivia several times over the last two years. The restaurant is very pretty with a ceiling that is open to the sky and large open windows so there is a nice indoor/outdoor feel. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgable. There is a creative cocktail menu. The meal starts with a delicious amuse bouche of labne with zataar and smoke olive oil. The dishes are creative and make excellent use of Middle Eastern spices. We dine here every time we come to Aruba.

Absolutely wonderful! The atmosphere, the food, and most importantly, the staff, were all top-notch. The restaurant was clean and lively, and the service was timely. Our table was ready before our reservation time, and we were seated and greeted with a smile :) Table service was professional and personable. The food quality was superb and appropriately priced. Five stars. I recommend Olivia to anyone visiting Aruba, and I will visit again!

We had a fantastic meal at Olivia's. Our son ranked it number one out of all the restaurants we had gone to during the week. The food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant inside is very pretty. The service was extremely attentive. We will surely be putting this restaurant on our rotation of restaurants for when we come back to Aruba in the winter.

Olivia is an amazing restaurant and we really enjoyed our meal. The food was excellent as was the service and the ambiance.

We happened to hear someone raving about Olivia so we gave a try on our last night in Aruba and we loved it! The ambience is beautiful, the food was divine - the best lamb we've ever had! Every course was amazing...tasty and beautifully presented! Our server, Susan, was lovely and accommodating and the entire service group was so nice and attentive! A wonderful menu and dining experience leaving us wishing it wasn't our last night... we will be back! Thank you!!!

This was our first time at Olivia. My friend is vegetarian so we picked this restaurant because of the many vegetarian options. We were blown away by the beautiful atmosphere and the service by their outstanding staff. However, it was the food that left the most lasting impression on us from the stunning presentation, the experience each bite offered to the fabulous flavours it is something we won’t soon forget! Thank you to our server Tito who was knowledgeable and willing to make suggestions on what to try! Your smile and conversation made our night! We will be back to Olivia on our next trip to Aruba!

Started off a little rocky as we waited at least 15 minutes before being waited on, but thereafter service was exceptional, and food was beyond fantastic. You must must try the smoked barramundi (fish), and baba ghanoush! fattoush salad with grilled shrimp was wonderful. For dessert I would suggest the orange crème brûlée.

Our server didn’t give us much of an introduction or say anything about the menu to give us some guidance. The food was good but maybe had too many flavors going on to the point where it was a little confusing, specifically the seabass. I was most excited about this menu out of all the places we had reservations at but it ended up being one of my least favorite dinners. The ambiance was wonderful. Such a beautiful place!
