From Padre Blvd. Las Olas is just a mailbox with the number 340 on it and a small sign out front. You go through the gate (the gatehouse was empty) and drive back to the parking lot. From there a wide walkway (which is actually a driveway to a few handicapped parking spots) leads back a couple hundred yards to... More

This place is a sham set up to entice people to stay at the "resort". Kitchen closes whenever front office tells them to. Feel bad for service workers because they were all extremely pleasant. Avoid.

We were excited to try Las Olas last night and boy, what a surprise! Closed. No signs of life visible anywhere, despite a clear indication from the website and even reviews on multiple sites posted in the past week that they were open for business and the food was great. We haven't found out why; our hotel was mystified. Call... More

Had been here before and had a great experience. Returned this month only to find very poor service. They were out of the first 3 items that I tried to order. One of them was shrimp! How can you be out of shrimp in a beach front restaurant when the restaurant is completely dead? None of the staff spoke english.... More

Fresh seafood, fabulous view! You can walk up from the beach or use the hotel parking lot. The food was awesome and the service top notch. If you're looking for a step up from the usual fried seafood place we have the answer. Las Olas was our favorite find! Great place to relax as the sun sets and you'll have... More

ate here while staying at the Peninsula Hotel. Food is fabulous. Service is a little slow but very worth it. The flan is to die for. The ceviche is the best I have ever had. great view of the beach from inside the restaurant.

I have eaten Dinner here once many years ago and the food was fine. though I do recall small portions with an eye on the presentation. A good friend and his lady made regular breakfast missions and always raved about it.
