Hi Mike! I'm very sorry you feel that way. Maybe you wait a little longer than you expected but the quality of the food, the view and the service is the best. As you notice this and the next week are pretty busy. We are...More

Hi Hector! I feel very sad with your comment because we are proud of our food quality. Our fish is 100% fresh, so the conch and the octopus. As you notice we don't announce lobster on the menu, but you should be in La Ola...More

Absolutely loved our dinner at La Ola Restaurant. The food was wonderful, and we had the best homemade peach sangria. This was one of the few places we found that had live music. Perfect outdoor setting and Caribbean atmosphere. Would definitely go back!

Enjoyed the most flavorful fried snapper and passion fruit mojito. The location is ideal and lively. It can also be romantic. I had read online that the establishment is open until 2a.m. on the weekends that is not true. On the weekend, the kitchen closes...More

Great view and Sangrias. Food and service fair at best. Waited over an hour for our order. Also they use one of those iPad when you pay and only give you a 15% or 20% option. I would only visit for happy hour in future.

We arrive at peak time on a Saturday Night. Eric our waiter told us upfront that the food could take longer than usual. Our spot in the terrace and the nice weather make us be more understanding I guess. The Sample of appetizers was good,...More

Thanks for your comment. We know the address in the map is wrong. I wrote to Tripadvisor to let them know. Hopefully they can correct it asap. At least you found us, hahaha!. Thanks, we hope to see you soon back in La Ola.

Casual outdoor dining. Waterfront with a great view of the small islands like Palomino and Icacos. The menu have a good selection of typical puertorrican food, seafood and meat. Friendly staff. Nice place to enjoy with children, friends and family or for enjoying a romantic evening. BEST VIEW, BEST FOOD, BEST SERVICE!!
