This is a popular local place that can have a line even in November. We have had good meals, some mixed and at our last visit nothing seemed to go right. After waiting about 20 minutes in line, we were led to a small table in the very back, essentially detached from the rest of the restaurant where I was... More

Be prepared to wait in line for a seat in this charming restaurant near the beach. It is worth waiting for! The margaritas are great, the food is wonderful and Tomas is the best waiter.....ask for him by name. The seafood platter is exceptional but their other fare is very good too.

Open-air seating - try for a table towards the back of the place, which is a lot cooler. We had a group of four sitting near the front window, and it was not uncomfortably hot, but it was quite near to the heat of the kitchen. The margaritas were excellent, huge and very strong. One was plenty, though someone in... More

Our concierge recommended this restaurant to us. I found the food and service to be good, but not outstanding.

I went for breakfast on a Sunday. I recommend getting there early, there can be a wait after 10am. The seats at the front of the restaurant are ideal for people-watching. Coffee is great, food is pretty good. Refried beans are especially tasty. When it gets crowded, you may have a hard time getting refills on water or extra tortillas.... More

We have been coming to Cafe de Olla with our family and friends for many years. It is one of our go to places for a meal in PV. Last Monday was disappointing. The usual attentive service was lacking just as the missing flavor in the enchiladas. Maybe, we will try Olla one more time on our next trip and... More

The atmosphere and food is absolutely fabulous. It is upscale without being formal. The service is 5 start at a minimum and the food is 5 start as well.

Cafe de Olla. It was delicious here. Add some pilocillo and cream and you're set. they also have a bread guy and you have choice of a free pan dulce. I got the cream cheese roll. It was ok. I've had better. The restaurant was always busy, but we got decent service considering. Not very much variety compared to other... More

I must start off with "we're not fans of their margarita" we have had much better at other places. Te chili rellenos and carne Asada are both a must do here. Very good they also have a nice breakfast too.
