Absolutely my favorite place!

Hands down the best, freshest, and tastiest food! We ate here for breakfast everyday, before we started our day. Then we returned for a delicious smoothie after our excursions. The staff are friendly, helpful, and kind.

We went to eat lunch at Olam and were pleasantly surprised by the food and its quality. The salads were delicious and the smoothie our waitress suggested us was Devine ! We would definitely recommend to anybody that wants a good healthy lunch, though it is a bit more expensive than other places, although well worth it. Namaste !

Two years after my original Olam review, I should say that I keep going back. The food and the vibe are great. The place is an oasis of good food and community. The atmosphere in the restaurant is vibrant but always tranquil - sometimes it's very quiet but there's often the sound of genuine laughter. It's not pretentious, and there's... More

We went to Olam because it was so highly recommended. If you are looking for fresh and flavorful vegan food, head to Olam! I was not disappointed and it is reasonably priced! The staff are super friendly and if you are looking for a good yoga class they are held just upstairs from the restaurant.

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.
