“Beautiful place right next to the Caribbean Sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

The view you will have while enjoying a fab meal right next to the ocean is something to remember. They fish their own seafood right in front of Sobre Las Olas every day, which is why they will have the special of the day posted. We have been there so often that we have tried the fresh snapper, shrimp amd lobster which is all very good.

“Oh so Romantic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We had our server point out a sloth while we were waiting for our meals! The food was great, a little more expensive but worth the beautiful ocean view and fun hammack! Couldn`t get anymore close to the beach. It was the only place we ate at twice during our week stay in Cahuita. That says a lot right there since we ate out every meal. Thanks Javier for great service!

“Best Birthday Dinner Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have been to Sobre Las Olas every time I visit Cahuita, usually more than once. Not only is the seafood fresh, the food is fantastic, and there is a resident sloth that will occasionally make an appearance.

I happened to be there for my birthday and when the staff found out they brought out a big piece of chocolate cake with ice cream and managed to break off a candle and light it for me. It was a wonderful expereince adn I will keep returning every time I can!
