Olam offered such amazing food, that in the end we went back every day. Great smoothies, healthy veggie burgers, yuka bread. All was truly delicious! I have a food allergy and also this was no problem, since all food is prepared fresh and ingredients could be left out easily. The place itself is also nice to hang out.

We simply loved this place! Every plate is made with love and fresh, high quality ingredients. We did stay two weeks in Santa Teresa and went there every day to eat, even though there are a lot of other places around. The owners made us feel at home and have been so welcoming every day.

From reading all the 5-star reviews, it would appear we had a bad experience/ordered badly. Therefore, if you're vegan/coeliac (we're not but appreciate healthy and tasty food), it sounds like your options in CR are limited, so try it! I was very excited to try this place and even more so when we arrived and I saw a "cookbook" on... More

Such a great experience! I wish they would open after 4pm so I could eat there all my meals there. The food is delicious and you have to try the smoothies!

We had the pleasure of enjoying breakfast every morning during our 1 week stay and were able to try nearly all the dishes, each one outstanding. The restaurant is located within Hotel Nautilus on a rather unassuming street in a serene open air platform surrounded by lush foliage with a yoga studio above, allowing the freshness of the food and...

This was definitely one of my favorite spots in Santa Teresa. I ate lunch there twice. The first time I has a super fresh Mediterranean Salad and a raw Choco ball. Both were amazing! the second time I went back I had the Hummus platter and a iron man juice. The service was fast. Atmosphere is very zen/relaxing. Highly recommend... More

We were in Santa Teresa for a week and we ate at Olam every day but Saturday because they were closed. Everything we ordered was fantastic, very fresh, and original. My wife loved the Olam pizza. All the salads are great and the people are very friendly and open. It's also one of the quietest and secluded places to eat... More

What a find! This place is delicious, unique and really showcases local fresh produce. This is a great breakfast spot that uses organic produce, vegetarian, gluten free and vegan recipes, serves awesome raw probiotic sodas, etc. My favorite dish is the Shakshouka, which is a saucy, spiced middle eastern egg dish and the savory pancakes.
