Hola's closed it's doors around the same time that Carlmont Nursery closed, and frankly, without the nursery waterfall and Maple trees, there was no view anyway. It appears that Carlmont Shopping Center is updating and redoing several of the stores and older businesses.

This location has sadly gone out of business. This establishment had great food and a beautifully decorated interior. I don't know why they had to close, but they are apparently gone for good in Belmont.

Ate there several times! The food is great, I usually order beef taco, refried beans, rice! My husband orders casadedas, that's his favorite! You gets chips, before the food comes! The service is good!

Frequently Mexican food is either too spicey or too bland. This was just right. The menu offered some items different from the traditional taco, burrito, etc. The guacamole was thick and flavorful not like the watered down frequently found. There is an assortment of fish...More

Holas' food is great, their atmosphere is really good and their servers are always nice. I am usually a meat only type of guy and their tacos are amazing (although a little pricey) but their ceviche is to die for. I don't usually like seafood...More

The food is pretty good just nothing special. Portions are huge and generally a lot of sauce. I had much better Mexican food but I've had way way worse. Staff are friendly and attentive though so no complaints about the service. Just nothing to write...More
