Description: Bar Olga's is one of the older and authentic Costa Rican restaurants in the Nosara area. Olga's is located on the beach with a wonderful ocean view. This is a fun, family beach and the favorite place to watch sunset for many locals. The food is good, the prices are very reasonable and sometimes there is free WIFI. Be sure to visit Olga's while you are in Nosara.

“Relaxing Relief form the sun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

You can tell this is a low key place that has the beach bum atmosphere. People from all over sat around us and enjoyed family meals and beach days with friends. There was a bar on the opposite side of us that also seemed busy for noon, but it's Costa Rica on a holiday. We ordered Avocado salad and Casado. The salad was perfect for us...tons of fresh cut avocado! The Casado was equally tasty; the potatoes were the bomb! The doggies were very friendly as well.

“Ice Cold Beer and a great price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

What else do you need to hear? Oh, it's on the beach and perfect for watching the surfers! Low tide allows for walking on the rocks and around the coast all the way to Nosara proper.

“Go for the views, not the food...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

The food is average. It's absolutely fine and our meal was decent, but not particularly memorable. There is better "tipico" food in town at a soda. However, the views are gorgeous -- you can watch the sunset on the Pacific. The kids can play in a pick-up game of soccer on the sand in front of Olga's. And there is something to be said for atmosphere.

“Fun place to drink with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

Strong alcohol!! Great view, kids placed soccer on the sand in front of us and the World Cup was playing in the background. Great place to chill with a beer and nachos.

“Mediocre food, Bohemian crowd”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

If I were a total Beach Bohemian I would go here more, but I'm not, so unless I get hit with a raging case of the munchies I will not return.
