Stopped by for dinner after a day of sailing and snorkeling. It was delicious! We shared the papas bravas, shrimp in garlic sauce, and the skirt steak marinated in strawberries. The service was excellent and there was a good energy about the place. It sits right on the ocean and the view was wonderful.

Absolutely loved this place. We're staying at Peña Mar across the street and walked over for a few drinks. Our intentions were to have a drink or two then head into the city but ended up staying until they shut down. Our bartender Jayson was great, very attentive and friendly and drinks made perfect... Highly recommend if you're in the... More

The place was very authentic, and the food was great. The environment was quiet and there was a very nice breeze coming from the beach. There is live music sometimes and the drinks are very exotic.

Friends recommended La Ola for mother's day dinner, and my wife and I were blown away. Wonderful food, great/friendly service by Jasson (a real pro!) and beautiful ocean view. It doesn't get better than that. We'll be back, and back, and back .....

We stopped at La Ola our first night based upon goo Trip ratings. We loved it. The shrimp and native rice was our group's favorite. We had so much fun with our servers Jasson and Naomi, we came back two more times this week. In addition to the good food and service, the views on the harbor waters with the... More
