Highly recommend this restaurant. We went in for a nice dinner and that is what we got. Free taste of beer, free taste of fish soup, free taste of fried olantains and then the very inexpensive main course of shrimp enchiladas. Not the "typical" tex-mex enchiladas, only better! Huge portion at a very low price. Delicious! Excellent service, great location,... More

Menu was extensive, with lots of options. Glad to see a mix of local and international options. A little bit of everything, cannot go wrong. Pricing is pretty good, and with a small group, the service was as well. Everything seemed extremely fresh, and came out decently fast.

All and all this was a great value. Good seafood dishes but a bit unorganized and difficult to get waiters attention. Very noisy so would not be good for business dinners, but a nice casual spot to walk to if your staying locally.

My wife and I wanted a place to just have a decent meal in a good place, we had seen this restaurant in the past but had never stopped for a meal, so we did. We were greeted and observed that the tables overlooking the zona rosa street were taken, so we sat down in the center room. The waiters... More

We had lunch at La Hola while in San Salvador and really enjoyed the food. It was actually really good food! However, I only gave the restaurant 4 stars because we were a large group, 13 of us, and the food was brought out at different intervals and one of my nephews didn´t get his order until after the rest...

Food here was good. I had lobster that was prepared very well with nice spice. Miniscule baked potato Seated near very very noisy group that almost spoiled the evening. Without them there or handled the atmosphere would have been fine. Service painfully slow but very pleasant. Locate very close to Hilton where I was staying. A short safe walk so... More

Pros: Complementary appetizer (ceviche) and drink (beer), good service, fresh fish, tasty and very creative ceviches (long list). We had Panama shrimp ceviche and fish ceviche with olive oil. Both were very good. The Panama ceviche is spicy but it's really interesting (it comes with fried yucca). More than the fish one. Check my pics.

Good seafood restaurant. We stopped for lunch on a Sunday. We had a delicious pizza, but had choices of lots of fish dishes, including sushi. We sat on the 2nd floor where there was a good view and cool breezes.
