Authentic Mexican food in Califrnia setting

You know it's a good restaurant if it's where the locals go. I love the food because it is so downright hearty and comforting. Serving size is good for two so you get real value and all the fresh tortilla chips and salsa you want!

Every time we visit Camarillo, Olas is a MUST. Great food for a great price and fun laid back atmosphere. Portions are good size. Be sure to check it out!

This place is excellent; great food & service. All food is freshly prepared with quality ingredients. My favorite is the carnitas burrito. Stuffed with tasty meat, fresh beans, rice. The salsa bar is very good. Large selection of beverages; beer & soda. It's my go-to place for surf-mex!

Had dinner, great food, they could do no wrong. Ola's is the perfect surf-mex restaurant for Camarillo. Was there on a Friday night. The place was booming. Great crowd. My only comment was the noise. Could not hear my wife. Recently had hearing checked, no issues. My age 55. Wife said it was noisy but go with the flow! Maybe... More

Best Mexican ever according to my husband. Price was very reasonable and the staff were extremely friendly. Great after a hard day of outlet shopping.

Olas is the kind of place you will find families dinning out together. The decor consists of a phenomenal collection of California surf historionics. Surf films, surfboards on the walls, autographed pictures, posters, and other memorabilia. The food is yummy and yes beach grub. I get the tacos asada, but everything on the menu is yummy. Fun, casual, and good... More

Hollywood should film a movie here. Classic surf-Mex food in a quirky building with an open floor & surf memorabilia all over the walls. Only thing missing are the olas, er, waves. Food is quick-serve Mexi-Cali. Portions are huge. My favorite is the fish soft taco platter (on the nightly specials menu) but you can't go wrong with any of... More

Olas is a great place to get some good Mexican food. The staff is extremely friendly, the food is good and the portions are huge!! I love the salsa bar. This place is packed during the lunch so get there early if you want a seat or don't want to stand in line forever.
