  • Concise menu with a few cold salads, then moves on to hot plates, both small and large, with perhaps a half-dozen more daily specials posted on a chalkboard. Olivar is informal and inexpensive.
  • Patatas a la Pobre
  • Try the Profiteroles - Crispy and delicious. Mine came with Salted Caramel Ice Cream!
  • Try the Roasted Spring Onions - This was a special, but it was amazing! Hopefully it sticks around for a while
  • Try the Spicy Mussels With Feta Cheese And Herbs - Unusual and sooooo good!
  • Go hog wild with the Wild Boar Sausage w/ braised Savoy cabbage & fried shallot.
  • Get the gnocchi and the squid risotto. You won't be disappointed.
  • Try the paella, it was delicious.
  • So far, the successes at Olivar resound with an autumnal substance, and the failures disappoint with blandness.
  • Go to Olivar and squeeze yourself into one of their tables. Then order sardines and a glass of wine
  • Do the chefs tasting menu and leave it up to him - everything was so tasty. They are closing end of April, so get a meal in before!
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the Ensaimadas and the paella. Ask about the Russian interior, a beautiful/fascinating mural.
  • Fantastic food! Each plate has a unique taste. Very reasonable! 4 people, 2 bottles of wine, several plates ... with tip, $60 per person!
  • Try the Spicy Mussel With White Wine Sauce And Herbs
  • Try the Tarte Tartin - With Creme brle!
  • Try the Lobster Ravioli, Hedgehog Mushrooms And Fennel - Amazing. Amazing.
  • Try the Brussel Sprouts, Duck Confit, Hazelnuts - Amazing flavor!
