Eating right in Santa Teresa

The best healthy eats in Santa Teresa! If you are vegetarian or vegan then Olam is the place for you. Organic food and much more. This a great spot for a healthy, delicious meal. The vibe is as great as the food too.

My family and I stopped here for lunch and it was amazing! The smoothies were thick, fresh and delicious! The Mexican veggie burger with avocado was really tasty too. We also enjoyed the homemade granola with fruit and yogurt and we took the banana muffins to go. The service was fabulous and we enjoyed every bite! We will be back... More

Appetizers and Pasta Antipasti is absolutely fantastic. Hummus was amazing and a generous portion. Lemonade is best lemonade I have ever had but the smoothies were not up to par with my expectations. This restaurant / Nautilus hotel attracts a strange crowd from what I observed over a couple of days, but they apparently have a yoga spa as well... More

This is probably the best, most tasty and surprinsingly good choice, even for a non-vegan. Do also check our their fantastic smoothies.

While in Santa Teresa, my friends and I ate at Olam three times! For one thing, they serve the absolute best Chai tea! It's homemade and unlike anything else. Delicious breakfasts with fresh fruit. Everything on the menu looked great.

On our recent stay in Santa Teresa we fell in love with this restaurant. It is up a side road removed from the main road a little. The outdoor seating is beautiful and clean with fans overhead. The food is out of this world delicious and unique. We tried a black bean burger, falafel sandwich, summer salad, savoury pancakes, mango... More

Great gluten free pizza and I also tried their gluten free pancakes for breakfast which were very yummy also. Just up the hill a bit, very nice clean place.

I try not to eat at the same location more than once while on vacation, but Olam is the exception! Ate there 3 times and could have every day of my visit. Food was so unique, creative and delicious, not to mention healthy! Staff was super friendly and attentive.

Delicious, and nutritious food. The space is also beautiful. We couldn't stay away and went back several times over the course of our stay. We would highly recommend Olam!

My husband and I stumbled upon this place one afternoon and went back for lunch almost every day. The meals and salads are delicious, and the smoothies are the best I have ever had. All of this in a calm, relaxing atmosphere with excellent service. The staff is personable, pleasant, and very accommodating.
