Went to La Olita based on the rave reviews and was not disappointed. Tried the Baja style fish and the grilled shrimp. Both were fantastic but the grilled shrimp is definitely in the running for the best taco I’ve ever had. Definitely will return.

The fish taco's were sublime in this typical beach town shack.Sadly they had run out of white wine.?Although the place wasn't full,the two guys were struggling to keep up with the demand,with the main server having little or no English.Great for a pit-stop,but maybe not...More

Hey, we are a team of young people running this restaurant in puerto escondido. After 4 months of building up the place we are so happy to present you our beautiful "restaurancito" in la bajada de las brisas, Zicatela. This place is completely hand and homemade. We put up the walls..There was cardboard before, and we built up the bar, painted the whole place and tried to offer a nice atmosphere with lots of plants. We can actually cook everything for you, on the menu we basically have great fish tacos, crepes, Mexican food and delicious fruit shakes and TropicaJuices. We try to be very flexible and find out what our costumers really like. We just opened one year ago and so far we are really happy about the people that came to eat to our place. Since we are not on the main street in Zicatela..(you just have to go up the street direction "carretera" as if you would like to go to La Punta) we are not only focused in the tourism. We try to satisfy both sides..the Mexicans and people from all over the world. We do shopping in the morning and open at 03:00pm. We close at 10:00 pm. We keep our prices low since we don't wanna get rich with a few people. For us it's nicer to have a great movement in our place and to get to know all different kinds of people who are happy to come back again because they know that we offer quality and good prices. We are looking forward to see u in LA OLITA, oh and travel recommendations are for free.
