“people watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I stayed this summer right on Los Olas and enjoyed being able to walk to many restaurants with streetside tables. On my first afternoon I went to a small wine bar and sat outside with a nice glass of white. Several women sitting nearby, seeing that I was alone, invited me to have dinner with them. That was just one example of how friendly people were during my visit. I can't wait to go back!

“Well worth a walk up and down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Las Olas is a very up market promenade with lots of bars and restaurants. We went to Mango's because it was a bit quieter and we could sit on the patio and watch people passing by on the street. Food was very good and r easonably priced.

“Not my cup of tea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

In the guide books and on trip advisor it sounds great. Wife and I parked the car, walked along this Boulevard, nice eating places, a bar and expensive shops. Not too many shops at that, in fact "NOT MY CUP OF TEA AT ALL".
Might be nice to sit and watch the cars go by with a glass of wine, or the ladies with the " look at me culture".
But I don't get it at all, sorry guys, nothing special....

“Vibe - a cool bar @LasOlas Blvd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

A great place to shop and to have some fun. Numerous bars with live music, nice restaurants with a good choice of tasty food. Lots of action. Just the place to go if you are looking for some great entertainment. The Vibe bar is cool! Was there at a New Years party with a couple of my fantastic friends and it was awesome.

“nice night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We took the water taxi over for dinner and window shopping. Nice area, high end shops and restuarants. There is a Cheesecake Factory if you are on a budget.
