Butterflied prawns were huge and plentiful. Similar in quality to most of the places in town (maybe a bit less so than Organico Bistro).

Not nearly as good a quality food as the Bistro Organico, and was pricier than the Bistro, but we did have a good meal here on Valentine's Day, and really enjoyed the classic rock played by the live band from Mexico City, and joined in the dancing around the tables so fun was had by all.

From the little espresso cart that could oh so long ago....to breakfasts way back when....I watch the BEST restaurant in San Pancho stand it's ground as others restaurants and cafes open up (and sometimes close just as fast), only hoping to have a fraction of the quality that La Ola Rica provides.

It's EXCELLENT! From the service, to the meals, to the drinks, to the ambiance, to the prices. I love the mushroom appetrizer, the ribs, the coconut shrimp. Watch out for the Marguaritas...they are strong and GOOD! The owners know what people like. Make reservations in advance for just after sunset. Ask for a table on the street. Also, check out their beach front restaurant, La Playa. Same excellent everything. No, I don't work for them....I just think that they deserve my rave review!

Dined here twice on our recent visit to San Pancho. First time had the coconut shrimp, four giant shrimp pounded flat butterfly and were delicious. Second time had the pork ribs, four perfectly cooked spareribs.

Maybe La Ola Rica is a "unique" experience. How can one restaurant be so consistently great? The service, setting, food, beverages and prices kept us coming back.

We ordered some items we had never had before, like the cocoanut shrimp (ahhh) and the pork medallions (yum) and they were wonderful -and more than enough so we each had salads and shared the entrees!

Ola Rica hums with hospitality. Want to practice your Spanish, fine. Stuck in English, no problem. The wait staff and the owners are respectful and generous and more!

You have a choice of sitting outside and enjoying the great San Pancho street scene or sitting inside and enjoying the art of Frida Kahlo and Diego Reviera. In either case, you're also likely to enjoy the performance of local musicians.
