A word from Bistro Olea
Olea Mediterranean Bistro is the result of our lifelong dream to bring authentic, healthy, local, and affordable Mediterranean food to the California Coast. Here at Olea – meaning olive in Latin – we try to keep everything as simple and pure as olives, guaranteeing that every dish is made with the freshest ingredients. We cook each and every order with great pride and honor, insuring that our food is made from scratch every day. Our family owned and operated bistro, located in the heart of Burlingame, brings the best things in life to the table… family, friends, great food, and good times. Our fun, diverse, and appetizing menu, allows you to taste the finest flavors and dishes of the Mediterranean without a plane ride!  Come taste the difference at Olea.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Given the prime location of this restaurant, you expect much much better. I have never seen more than a handful of diners in this restaurant and now I know why. The food is dull, the service is worse. We waited 45 minutes for our dinner to arrive even though there were no more than 6 diners in the place at 7pm! Owners, please close and make room for another restaurant. The space is too valuable for such mediocre food."

  • "Wanted to try someplace new, chose Bistro Olea after looking at their menu. Prices are VERY reasonable and the food was goodt. Could use a few more by-the-glass options on the wine list though. Loved the décor! The service was extremely slow, took a long time to take our order and bring drinks and we were largely ignored throughout our meal. Although, once we did order, the food came fairly quickly. Once they work out the kinks with the servers, this restaurant will be great."

  • "We have been to this restaurant several times. The food is excellent. And it's on busy Burlingame Ave. Not sure why it hasn't caught on but the place is usually empty, even while other places on the Avenue are packed. Spread the word..it's a lovely find."

  • "The food was very nicely seasoned. My dish was huge. I took the leftovers home and ate 3 more meals from it. The service was great and very attentive. Definitely going back."
