We had one of the best meals of our vacation at Sobre Las Olas! The staff was also super friendly. I had fish with the most amazing coconut sauce I've ever tasted! Everything we tried was fresh and prepared perfectly. Thanks for a wonderful meal (and view!). Make a reservation so you can sit outside and enjoy their beach front... More

javier made an amazing restaurant even better. He helped picked the perfect wine (while the waitress & I were having some language barriers). I'm not a fan of coconut, but I wanted the Caribbean/curry experience. The cook made a sauce just for me that was amazing---so was the fish by the way!!

We had lunch in this restaurant which is located right on the beach. The setting was spectacular as was the food. Appetizers, entrées, and dessert were all excellent. No complaints about anything from anyone in our party of 7!. Would highly recommend! Of note is that if you use visa they add 13% so make sure you have cash!

Spent a week in the Cahuita area, ended up dining 3 times at Sobre las Olas. The ceviche got us hooked, the jumbo shrimps (catch of the day) were awesome. Also had excellent red snapper and octopus with garlic\wine. Nice beachside location and on a dry evening, they set up tables outside.

There are few places offering good seafood with fabulous seaside views like Sobre Las Olas. We enjoyed listening to the crash of waves against the seashore while eating generous portions of the catch of the day (Red Snapper) and Mahi-Mahi. The Mahi-Mahi was served with a rich creamy, slightly spicy, coconut sauce. The Red Snapper was grilled to perfection and... More

Amazing view. We had dinner at the edge of the shoreline under Palm trees. The food was delicious, but not cheap. The setting makes it worth the price

Attracted by the good reviews on trip advisor we went there twice and were indeed satisfied with the quality of the food. We had a delicious Ceviche of Carpaccio de Atun, a fresh lobster, a crispy sea bass, spicy garlic prawns and an octopus Mexican style, that was a little bit tough. The vegetables were "al dente", the service good,... More
