Candelabras, flowers and some intimate tables in cosy corners add to the romantic ambience. Paintings by local artists decorate the walls, and some of the plates used are exclusively handcrafted for specific dishes.
El Olivo opens for dinner only, but lunch can be arranged for special groups. Executive chef Guillermo Méndez and his team offer the best of Mediterranean and Mallorcan cuisine with the majority of the ingredients coming from the hotel’s own vegetable garden and the local village.
There’s a choice of à la carte, five-course and seven-course tasting, and classic menus. El Olivo classic dishes made with local produce, include fresh and dried tomato tartar with Mahon cheese and Sóller prawns cooked in salt with sea beans and La Residencia olive oil.
Domenico Napolitano is maître d’. The excellent wine list regularly achieves an Award of Excellence from the prestigious ‘Wine Spectator’. Booking essential.
