Description: We are a small exclusive restaurant with a southern European oriented kitchen. Our menu offers a select choice of traditional Spanish dishes and creations inspired by the Mediterranean cuisine. Our chefs are dedicated to prepare for our guests the best dishes with the finest ingredients.The restaurant is decorated in the southern Spanish style with original tiles and a long marble bar where you can enjoy our extensive wine list, have a meal or if you have not booked, have a drink while waiting for a table.For a snack and a drink you can also sit on the terace. In the summer you can enjoy watching the boats taking turns to sail through the narrow gate towards the open water or to the canals of the oldest and most beautiful part of Amsterdam.

The meal was very tasty and the house wine was surprisingly good! It has a cosy and friendly atmosphere. Very few places to eat in the red light district looked at all welcoming - this one was different.

Need I say more?!? Waiter was very fast in telling us not to move the table for our party of eight .... sorry! So we had to sit apart.
The location is super, staff not.

Restaurant Olivar was a welcome relief for the noise and crowds on a busy Saturday night. The owner was warm and friendly. The food was great and the wine list complemented the Spanish cuisine. Though small and a full house we were not rushed. The restaurant was very clean and we were surprised to hear that they had been opens for years. I’m sure if I lived in this city it would be on my regular list.

Extremely bad!!!! The staff didn’t help us, didn’t say hi or anything. The coffee wasn’t good either..

We didn’t get a menu, bad coffee, impolite staff, he didn’t want to say what a coffee costs. We didn’t get the chance to split the bill either. Don’t come here, there are better places in Amsterdam.
