Description: Our dishes are created to be deliciously healthy, are made with respect for local growers, food ecology, and to showcase local ingredients. We offer vegetarian and meat, fish, chicken options. Our staff are well-paid and respected for their professionalism. Mon-Saturday 7 am - 11 pm. Sunday 8am - 9 pm. We have been in business in Managua since 2003. Proceeds from the restaurant are used to help the Ola Verde Foundation (Fundación Ola Verde), a local NGO that designs educational materials about making consumer food habits healthier using natural locally produced ingredients.

Reviewed October 28, 2013

This is one of the best restaurants in Managua.
Who said that healthy food is not tasty? it is SO good!! the menu offers a variety of healthy, tasty and balance food. And the atmosphere is great to be with business people or just to have some drinks, good food and a nice talk with your friends.
If you are planning to go to Managua, this is a MUST and put it in your agenda since now.

“Superb organic experience!!!!!!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

if you appreciate locally sourced, 100% organic food, cooked to order and beautifully presented Ola Verde is your best choice in Managua. The menu is varied and offers something for every taste. Vegetarian selections are excellent and change daily. An absolute must have is the best seafood soup, chockfull of shrimp, clams, local fish, vegetables all in an incredible broth. This was the bedtsoup I've ever tasted!!!! This restaurant also features superb desserts which are all home made and can be purchased to take home as well from the attractive cases situated at the entrance of the restaurant. The service is both professional and very friendly, the owner is very involved and quite charming. Prices are US equivalent.

“Nice food. American prices.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Our food was pretty good(They put a ton of salad dressing on my salad, and couldn't finish it all, but the overall taste was good.). We went on a Saturday afternoon and we were the only ones there. The service was great. The prices are American pricing so I paid $9 for a salad.

“Good Experience.”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

This is a creative unique dining experience, As such it will be like any artistic performance, hit and miss.
If you want McDonald's or Pizza Hut they are just down the highway.
We travel extensively and had a very enjoyable evening ordering and tasting a variety of the items offered by their kitchen. No pretentiousness, and some of their offerings were sublime. The carpaccio, both fish and beef were excellent. So were the coconut shrimp.
The beef filet skewers were fantastic and the fish (curvina) was just alright. Their wine list is varied. We had two bottles of Chilean and their desserts were fanciful. All in all an excellent culinary adventure which all five of us will repeat.

“Something Amiss”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

You know a place is in trouble when it only fills 3 tables on a Saturday night. So, what could be wrong? Well, there were three in our party and we each ordered from a different section of the menu: vegetarian, pasta and fish.
My curry dish was too timidly seasoned and was barely warm with some cold spots suggestive of microwaving, the ravioli had an odd texture and was flavorless, the fish was well seasoned but overlooked. The brownie was
quite good. So there you go. This is no longer the only good restaurant in town and it looks like inconsistencies in quality might just be their undoing.
