“Great little spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

My wife and I ate lunch here opting for the 17 euro 3 course menu. The menu had a good range of dishes and the food was really nice. My wife's pil pil (pir piri) prawn starter was excellent as was her hake fillet, cooked perfectly. The grilled entrecote of beef that I had was very nice. Gorgeous fresh bread served to start. A copy of the menu can be found below.

The restaurant is located on the waters edge at the old marina, next door to it's sister restaurant which specialises in seafood. Both were recommended to us by a local jeweller.

La Ola (and the sister restaurant) is a great little spot, with good food, very friendly service and ideally placed to watch the World (and the odd Ferrari) go by.
