We went to Las Olas based on previous tripadvisor reviews. We were looking for some seafood dishes and decided to try this restaurant, and like others, we weren't disappointed. We ordered 4 entrees, 3 cocktails/drinks, 2 desserts for 4 people and it cost us less than $100 U.S. The waiter was extremely friendly and attentive. Don't judge the exterior, as... More

You can't go wrong at Las Olas. We had ceviche for an appetizer and it was amazing. For entrees we had Surf & Turf, which was a nice strip steak and Shrimp with Mahi Mahi and a "Stuffed Lobster". The lobster was HUGE!!! And besides the entire lobster, it was piled high with fish, calamari, crabmeat, shrimp, clams and mussels.... More

Great food and service. We went on a Sunday evening, had the place pretty much to ourselves. So we had great service. Our waiter was very friendly and spoke good English. The coconut shrimp was huge and very good. Prices are good. The drinks were great, my husband said the Margarita was awesome.

This is a little restaurant which is situated about half-way down the main drag in Playa del Coco. It is up some stairs, and offers a nice view of the street and market. Prices are a little bit higher than the average restaurant, but the service was top notch,and the ceviche and red snapper were delicious.

We stopped in there 6/9/14 on the recommendation of our tour guide. We had a great meal. The restaurant had wonderful atmosphere and terrific service. We went fishing the next day and caught several Mahi. So we took them to Las Olas and asked if they would prepare the fish for us. They were glad to do it and that... More
