We had a wonderful dinner here with a large group. We chatted with many of the people dining there and they were repeat customers. The fresh fish was delicious as well as the queso. Margaritas were very strong-one is enough for anyone!! Highly recommend!!!

We got there a bit later but the servers still gladly took our order and we didn't suffer as a result. To me, it was the best of many good Mexican restaurants. Very affordable--get the fried cheese and the Mexican plate. The hot sauce is some of the best we've had as well.

Family run, extensive menu, one of the best tortilla soup with chicken I have ever had. My husband had perfectly cooked octopus with garlic cooked in oil. Their Mexican coffee with cinnamon was a real treat. Recommended by our resort staff.

We ate at Cafe de Olla 3 times during our visit - once for breakfast and twice for dinner.....the atmosphere is wonderful, the service staff are friendly !! No reservations but you share stories with other travellers and they serve drinks in the line.....cash is the only payment accepted !!!

You have to make it a point to stop in at Cafe de Olla. There's usually a wait but it moves quickly. Watch out for the margaritas, they pack a punch!

Food is consistently great as is the service. Dined here several time ove last couple of years and is always good. Outside seating is fun able to enjoy the weather and people watching while you eat.

There's always a line around dinner time for this restaurant. We waited perhaps 15 minutes, as the staff are very efficient when clearing tables and seating us. The atmosphere is fun, the staff good, and the prices very reasonable, but the menu was fairly typical for Mexican food we could find in the USA.

Fun place to eat. Great food and great service. Prices are very fair. My favorites are the fajitas and ribs. Over the years (20 plus) we have been here many times. Standing in line, we have always met good people and sometimes we share a table and have an even better time.
