Overpriced. Nothing remarkable. Another spot but without beach view and high prices. Just don't get it.

Loved this relaxed little beachy bar/restaurant! The fish tacos were wonderful and it was a fun place to stop and have a bite and a drink.

Ola Lola's is that friendly, funky, familiar local joint where everyone is welcomed with cold drink and great food - tourists, locals, friends, family, rich, poor, regulars, newbies, just name it! The owners are a vibrant part of the local community and full of great recommendations. The vibe is fantastic and you'll find yourself going back time after time. Enjoy!

John the owner makes you feel right at home. His sense of humor and anecdotes are to die for. His way to entertain is on point. Highly recommended!!

We stumbled onto Ola Lola's one evening heading back to Villas Montana. Decided to stop in for a couple of beers and hang out for a few. It is a very unassuming garden bar with some nice lighting and relaxed ambiance. We sat at the bar and met the owner John. He was very friendly and personable. We had just... More

The highlight of the evening was the staff! The owners, John and Elaine, are beyond friendly and engaging. They warmly greet everyone there and everyone passing by. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Made to order food with all fresh ingredients, nothing processed. My husband and I shared the spinach dip, the teriyaki burger and the fajita melt...

We lived in Aguadilla for 3 years, and Ola Lola's Garden Bar & Grill was one of our favorite places. John and Elaine are a super friendly folks and readily available to give advice of places to visit around the island. I liked to called Ola Lola's the Puerto Rican Cheers.

Went with wife and had the asiago burger and the peanut butter bacon burgers. Both were really good. The fries that came with the asiago burger were generic and a small portion. The chips that came with the peanut butter burger were also unremarkable. The place is open and the insects were a little bothersome.

Thank you for visiting - and for taking the time share your thoughts. We're pleased you liked your burgers. Sorry about the bugs. Even though we are an open-air restaurant, we are typically very fortunate to have very few insect issues. Your visit was during an unusually rainy period and the bugs were at their worst. More

Great food and drinks with fun atmosphere. Went with a big group and the owner John spent tons of time chatting with us and giving us recommendations for the rest of our trip.

Thanks for sharing your time on the island with us - and thanks for taking a moment to write a review. I hope I didn't monopolize too much of your time. By the way - we couldn't agree with you more about the food, drinks and atmosphere. We're happy we could make your trip a little bit better. More
