My wife ordered cheese enchiladas and the sauce tasted like marinara sauce ... literally. They didn't charge us for the meal, but won't return.

We had several dishes that were good like the spicy octopus, mahi mahi filet, bbq ribs which were all good. Their margaritas are strong but the lime is better than than the mango as it did not taste like there was much fruit in it. Order a small one if you don't want a huge bowl. The service is good....

Cafe de Olla is a standby whenever we come to PV and it doesn't disappoint. Great ambience, strong margaritas and wonderful food makes for a great evening. They grill their meats and fish and the food is very fresh. Service was excellent and it's located on a lively street in the Romantic zone filled with boutiques and bars. We will... More

This place was the best! We ate at a different restaurant each night, and this was our favorite for authentic Mexican food - absolutely delicious fajitas - tender chicken meat and crisp red and green peppers. Fresh made salsa and home made chips were delicious too!

We stopped here more than one morning for a coffee and split a scone. Wow! Each time, the beans were freshly ground and made just for us. It's a charming little spot with a morning breeze and several expats stopping in for a morning chat.
