Had a 3 year old and 9 year old -- both were paid attention to and the kids menu was good. Large bar and drinks were well prepared. Parking right on... More

3 of us stopped for lunch, the service was good and we enjoyed the atmosphere.......festive but not too overwhelming. Chips and Salsa were fresh, and didn't have to ask for additional. Fish tacos on the lunch menu were pretty good, not the best we've had, but still felt they were worth ordering. My standard question is: Would I go back... More

I've been going to Las Olas for many years. I recommend the chic tostado! Tortilla is crisp and all the fixings are fresh! Goes great with a Cadillac margarita!

Las Olas is an institution in north San Diego County. They have two restaurants, one is Solana Beach and one in Carlsbad. We go to there at least once a month. They specialize in Mexican sea food but have a pretty wide array of items. Here is their menu. http://www.lasolasmex.com/menus/dining.html The motif is kind of a palapa beach bar but... More

We've been going here for years (their Cardiff restaurant as well) and have never been disappointed. They serve all the traditional Mexican restaurant standards (combo plates, burritos, etc.) but if you really want something special, try one of their seafood specialties. They also have some great drinks....like a margarita with a hint of hot chili...YUM! I think they even flavor/infuse... More

We ate twice at Las Olas while we stayed in Carlsbad. We enjoyed our meals and the chicken and rice tortilla soup was very good. My husband really liked the Mexican Margarita. Jake was our server during our last visit and he was excellent. My husband and I both commented that he was the best server we had during our... More
