I went to Ola on Saturday 22 June with my husband, because of the other good reviews on tripAdvisor.
The restaurant looks like the pictures and was full, but even when we called at 9 pm to reserve a table at 10 pm there was no problem.
Nice, warm atmosphere in the sunny tones of orange, animated by salsa music in the background. Starting from the bread, mini tapioca and queso fresco rolls, which were moist, warm and fragrant (we got an extra one each) everything was outstanding.
We shared two appetizers, the taquitos with smoked fish and the shrimp chicharrones, which were flavorful, slightly spicy, crunchy and fulfilling. As a main we shared the salmon marinated in sugar and rum and the lobster ceviche. Salmon was cooked perfectly, like butter in your mouth, we could not stop saying how good it was. Ceviche was interesting and really delicate, because of the lobster texture.
It was a treat, since we were on vacation, but I was happy to pay and receive a full meal which I enjoyed with no tiny portions non-sense.
Service was impeccable, really fast and attentive. I could see with the corner of my eye that every time the waiter was passing close to the table he was checking on the drinks, but especially looking at our expressions to see if we were liking the food. It is not stuffy, laid back, but is the kind of place where when you go to the bathroom they fold your napkin and put it back on the table for you.
Every item on the menu showed creativity and passion, not the usual items over and over.
My only regret was that I had too much sun during the day and I did not feel like having one of the appealing cocktails on the menu! Great experience, we were talking about the dinner during the night and the day after. While I was grabbing a card on the way out, I have heard another customer (of a party of 4-5 people) saying "It was great I will definitely go back". Congratulations to the chef and the team (which was thoughtfully listed on the back of the menu)!
