We have been going to Lola's for several years on our trips to Costa Rica, it is a 40 min drive from our place in Potrero-but worth it every time. One the best surfing/boarding beaches in the country, capped by Lola's.
Excellent, fresh and vibrant food (on tuesdays we buy fish from the fish vendor to take back to our home), excellent smoothies and a full bar nestled on the sand with tables and chairs custom designed by the owner make for an unforgettable day complimented by the attentive staff.
The owners, Don and Christi are great people and are frequently in the area enjoying the location as much as the open-mouthed first-timers. At one time or another we have had everything on the menu, nothing has disappointed, but Poki, fish and chips , and chicken satay are perennial favorites.
They now take credit cards, this is the only beach in CR where we leave anything on the table and do not worry about it as we swim/surf/boogie or just walk about a mile down the beach and go to the Pinilla (JW Marriott) for a dip in the pool and a drink.
The wait staff are mostly English speaking and are great to get to know; Christian and Alex are the leaders of the team; and Rosa-the chef is phenomenal.
You will see a 6?7?hundred pound pig wandering around, that is Lola's successor, Lolita who has rapidly outgrown the "ita" part.
Spend the day relaxing, there is Internet if you must, and you will have one of the most peaceful days of your life.
They also have a new "Lola's Del Norte" just north of Potrero on the beach at Danta.
