We visited this place in the afternoon. It has a nice vibe and a great menu. We ordered smoothies, a wrap, and a nice quinoa salad. The problem was that it took at least an hour to get the food. At the end, the guy gave us one of our meals for free which was a nice gesture considering that... More

I am not a Vegan, and find most vegetarian dishes to be bland no matter how they try to spice them up. That being said I went to breakfast at Olam on my second day of my stay in Santa Teresa. I was blown away how good the food tasted. It was so good I came back 4 more times,... More

We had dinner here our last day and unfortunatly the food was not good at all (we had Palek paneer). The dish was poorly executed plus the amount of food that we got was very small. For 30 USD each it felt like a rip of.

We came here twice for lunch. It is a great and health place to eat. It is great if you are vegetarian so you can choose anything from the menu! There is lots of choice and the place is great!

I got the veggie burrito and my friend got the good fats wrap and both were missing ingredients on the menu (sprouts), flavorless, and basically just wrapped up avocado and tomato. Could have really used some good ole S&P. I said it was really bland and they just gave me a side of hummus which was also not the best.... More

Three of the healthiest and tastiest meals eaten during a 7 week stay in Costa Rica were also accompanied by the fastest WiFi I experienced in the entire country. Their menu is chock full of delicious organic and vegetarian options, plus an assortment of shakes.
