This is by far my favorite restaurant in Santa Teresa. Really good organic vegan and vegetarian food made with love. There was even an article about them in the New York Times lately! Don't miss this lovely restaurant at the Nautilis hotel

Ate here for breakfast, but the meal was less than impressive. This restaurant is more on the vegan side, so the pancakes were not made with milk, and we're very dry and heavy. If you are into "natural foods", the menu would be appealing. Service was only so-so.

Stayed in Santa Teresa for about 4 months, and this was by far our go to place when we needed some healthy, delicious food. The staff is super nice and very friendly. They have a variety of different smoothies, vegan meals and treats.

While at my stay at the Nautulis Hotel, I enjoyed the conveince of the restaurant located on site. Olam was a vacation in its own right, the food was an escape from processed, and unhealthy foods served in so many restaurants today. The selection was great and once I tried a dish I had to have it at least twice... More

My wife and I stopped by for a quick lunch, which ended up being a 2 hour orgasmic extravaganze. We obviously went back the next day and did it again. As a carnivor, this really changed my perspective on what is possible. Amazing, humble, chilled out, and incredibly good!!

We arrived in this little oasis to enjoy this temple of health food (actually it was late breakfast!). Everything was as expected but the service was too much on 'pura vida!' I can well relax on a wait or on food which comes at different times but unresponsive and no service is not my favorite. If you don't mind running... More

I have been drinking smoothies for years as part of my regular diet so I am always delighted to find a juice bar in my travels. This is no ordinary juice bar. The smoothie menu is extensive. It is all fresh and creative and delicious! I went 3 different times and tried 3 different ones. You can't go wrong. They... More

Cool place, we had lunch here and we came back twice for the smoothies. I'm craving for the cacao one. tried to make it myself but it was not even close to how amazing the one at Olam was.
