While the building modern and beautiful, the service is exceptional, and the food excellent, the prices are steep for what you get. While that's somewhat true for restaurants all over Santa Teresa, that's especially the case at Olam.

Five of us dined at Olam for lunch, and we each had something different, healthy, and delicious. Among us were a vegan and gluten free, both easily accommodated. The food and smoothie selections were extensive and everything was fresh and filling. It wasn't inexpensive though. I'd say about $20 each with an entree and smoothie. Staff was bilingual and friendly.

I ate here almost every day during my stay at Nautilus, and was so happy to have a healthy and delicious restaurant steps away from my room. The smoothies were incredible, and a large variety of options. The salads and sandwiches were fresh and delicious. A great option in Santa Teresa - highly recommend it!

We came to Olam for lunch after a morning of surfing. I had a Greek salad and a smoothie and my friend the Burrito and lettuce wraps...

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Santa Teresa. Really good organic vegan and vegetarian food made with love. There was even an article about them in the New York Times lately! Don't miss this lovely restaurant at the Nautilis hotel

Ate here for breakfast, but the meal was less than impressive. This restaurant is more on the vegan side, so the pancakes were not made with milk, and we're very dry and heavy. If you are into "natural foods", the menu would be appealing. Service was only so-so.

Stayed in Santa Teresa for about 4 months, and this was by far our go to place when we needed some healthy, delicious food. The staff is super nice and very friendly. They have a variety of different smoothies, vegan meals and treats.

While at my stay at the Nautulis Hotel, I enjoyed the conveince of the restaurant located on site. Olam was a vacation in its own right, the food was an escape from processed, and unhealthy foods served in so many restaurants today. The selection was great and once I tried a dish I had to have it at least twice... More

My wife and I stopped by for a quick lunch, which ended up being a 2 hour orgasmic extravaganze. We obviously went back the next day and did it again. As a carnivor, this really changed my perspective on what is possible. Amazing, humble, chilled out, and incredibly good!!
