“Best place on the beach”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Perfect location, Perfect atmosphere and Great tasting food! make sure you get a good look at Lolita which is an enormous pig! Lola's was named after their first pig which has passed away and this one is their new pet. You can also get a massage right there. Great place to take a break from the sun and sip an Imperial while watching the surfers right out front.

“Great Atmosphere, great drinks!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I was surfing all day long and tried the Lola's in Avellanas beach.
The smoothies (fresa or strawberry) was amazing! mango even better! Imperial beer was perfectly cold!
The food is ok, not so so special but remember: it's not a restaurant it's more an "après surf"....
If you go to Avellanas, try it!

“Must go here!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Right on the beach under beautiful trees. The tables and chairs are so unique. Watch surfers while you eat this delicious food! Amazing place! Check their hours before you go. They are not open every day.

“Favorite restaurant in Guanacaste”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We love the feel and food here. Like being able to sit on the beach and have good food? This is worth the trip if you are within an hour's drive.
