Just what we were looking for that evening!

We wanted music and drinks so they did not disappoint with the music. It was American music with a Latino flair! Food was very good. View was great, we were right on the water! Loved having private boats go by with misic playing, it was such a cultural experience! We felt like we were in a movie...

Great drinks and tapas- there was live music while we were there. Service was also nice, and loved the atmosphere. Didn't always appreciate the smell of sewage coming off the ocean, but that can't be helped!

We loved our experience at La Ola! We stayed across the street at Pena Mar and stopped after a day at the beach. We actually arrived before they were open but they served us drinks and let us hang out looking at the crabs on the rocks in the water while they finished all of their opening prep. Jason was...

Ok, so from the road, the parking lot doesn't look like much... From the parking lot you see the little mercado and the Banos... But walk a few more steps past the Banos (restrooms) and the cute little in ground pool and you will find a hidden treasure! Take those extra steps and you will be rewarded with, great service,...

Good place to stop by for a quick lunch. The view is really nice and we sat right by the water. The food isnt too special but nonetheless its very good. I recommend this place for a quick lunch if youre around Fajardo.
