If I lived here, I'd eat here at least once a week!

I don't want to ruin this place by having it overrun by tourists, but this place is AWESOME. John was very friendly. The "locals" that were there (beautiful young lady that does the horse trail rides, guy who does the scuba dives,...) all friendly. I'd say it's what Cheers would have been like... read more

We ordered fish tacos, a black bean burger, and crab dip appetizer. The food was extremely good and the location felt very beachy and homey at the same time. The staff was extraordinarily friendly, and the owner, John, went out of his way to talk to us and make recommendations of activities while we were in the area. This was... More

I visit this place with my brother and sister. It is a tiny place with a rustic look and feel. It's a little hidden, because its outside of the main road but it's not hard to find. We order a couple of burgers and they were very good. We order a burger with peanut butter, first we thought it was... More

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit. We noticed you gave us four stars for service. We pride ourselves on excellent service and we apologize if your service was anything less than 5-star. Was there any specific place our service was less than excellent?

My boyfriend love to travel and explore new places. We love to learn about others and the local culture. John, the owner, sat with us for over an hour and told us all about himself, the culture, his story, and possible plans for the future. We LOVED it!! Couldn't get more local than that. Excellent food, great drinks choices, and... More

It's a friendly atmosphere where you can relax and meet friends that last forever. The warm breeze, the country side view help you unwind, relax and enjoy the benefits of very good food.

Came here two nights in a row because we enjoyed it so much. The owner John was so helpful and friendly, and it was a funny surprise to find out he moved to PR from the area we are from! I tried the peanut butter burger per the other reviews, and I wasn't disappointed. It was truly delicious, and the... More

Where do I start about Ola Lola's. This place is a true hidden gem. It is a shack on the side of the road but the food is really good. Very simple food, burgers, salads, etc., but very well done. The people are absolutely amazing, owner's Elaine and John are wonderful! I literally had a tear in my eye when... More

Great chill atmosphere, absolutely fantastic Pina Colada made by the owner himself, and a nice tucked out of the way spot.

This outside bar serves hamburgers and fish tacos and great atmosphere. Drinks are cheap. We had so much fun on the deck talking to the owner with our group of 9. It has limited days and hours (3-9) but well worth the trip.

We had a great experience at Ola Lolas'!. John, the owner was really friendly and we all enjoyed our food. The Peanut Butter Burger is definitely one to try. Unique and filling! My favorite drinks were the Flip Flop and the Shimmy. My only reason for not giving it a 5 is that I would love for it to be... More
