Great food and service. Reasonable prices and good ambiance. Well locates in a residentail area and near a The Crown Plaza Hotel. If you like sea food this is the place to go.

Having just arrived in San Salvador we asked our cab driver to drop us at a "typical" restaurant in the Zone Rosa and he took us to La Hola. The food was great but very expensive! I had a prawn salad (four prawns) and a margarita for $17. My buddy had ceviche which was $10 and extremely good.

If you go to San Salvador, this is a place you have to visit. Seafood is well prepared and served, always full with local people and the classical environment that invites you to return. At night they have karaoke and the place turns into a fun and entertaining site.

The food is great! Ceviches are their specialty but be sure to order their appetizers! The "arañitas", washimis and "volcan de mariscos" are amazing. The down side is that service is slow. Worth the wait though.

Mr Beto Ferreiro started making ceviches some 50 yrs ago and we are glad that his descendants have kept up his recipes.

Great place to try the best of El Salvador's sea food! Don't miss the ship Pizza too! La Hola is a traditional sea food food in our country, and has won a great reputation for the quality of their food. The pricing is a little bit high, but you will have a great time, and went regret you're visit.
