“Great Food but expensive”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

The location is literally right on the beach. We ate there at night when the sloths were active. They were literally climbing right above our heads. We would have eaten there again but it was a bit too pricey.

“nice location but very fatty food”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

The location at the sea is veeery nice but the unfortunately the food (octopus with garlic, daily special) swam in the fat and was not good at all. It was also for CR really expensive and the value for money ratio was really bad.

“Perfect Food with a Perfect View”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Sobre las Olas is doubtlessly the place to go when it is seafoord or fish that you are after. Located right by Playa Negra, it offers great views on the ocean at sunset and yet is completely, I'd almost say lonesome by the beach.

Be sure to pick one of the tables outside so you can enjoy the sound of the surf and the gorgeous dawn.

As far as teh quality of the seafood and fish is concerened, you will not find any better in Cahuita or beyond.

SObre las Olas is a MUST when you'Re in or near Cahuita.

“My Favorite So Far in CR!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Excellent food and service, served with the water practically lapping at your feet! Couldn't believe my eyes when the server brought us a candelabra! The best!
