This restaurant was really good. Not only was the food delicious, but the waiter was nice. I can't think of any drawbacks since both the price and the quality were great! Este restaurante nos encantó, tanto el precio como el servicio, como, obviamente, la comida.

My daughter and I loved our meals - chicken fillet and seafood fettuccine. We would definitely recommend. Friendly and helpful staff. (Cash only.)

This was by far our favorite restaurant. Not only is the food excellent the ambiance is lovely. We had two dinners and two breakfasts here. One night a whole, grilled red snapper caught that day! Served with delicious grilled vegetables and rice.

Very friendly service, decent meal. Avocado salad was fresh and simple, bruschetta really good, but tomato pasta and shrimp in coconut sauce rather oily.

We went to this delightful restaurant several times. Dinner one night was just delicious...hubby had the grilled mahi-mahi and I had grilled chicken, and both dishes came with the most divine grilled vegetables. Highly recommend. We also really enjoyed breakfast here, and we came here...4 or 5 times for that. Katerina, "Kat", was just wonderful, ensuring that our coffee cups stayed filled and that we were happy with our meals. Gallo pinto, eggs, bacon, fruit, toast, and wonderful homemade jams and marmalades,,,all fresh & delicious. Would definitely come back.More

We had a great breakfast here before going into the National Park. The owner served us and even brought us a complimentary tray of bread and spreads while we waited for our order. The breakfast itself was delicious and full of fresh fruits.

We went for a late lunch, place is located near the center but far enough to have a nice and relaxing meal. Food was just amazing, service was great. Server super friendly and nice with my kids. There is no picture of the food as...it was so delicious, of course there were no leftovers either. Will definitely come back and recommend. Please take into consideration they only accept cash.More

We took a day trip to Playa Negra near Cahuita, and we stopped here for an early dinner. No lie, this is the best food we’ve had in the Puerto Viejo area, and for a reasonable price as well. Grilled red snapper was fresh and...flavorful, accompanied with fresh grilled vegetables. The tenderloin was the best beef we’ve had here as well. It’s on a main corner in this pleasant, quiet town, which is a welcome change of pace from the high season traffic in Puerto Viejo. We enjoyed watching the local foot traffic while we enjoyed our meal. I highly recommend Restaurante Las Olas.More
