Needed a quick place for a solo dinner. Definitely got some stares as I walked in alone - made the initial experience a little awkward. But servers were nice. And there were kids playing soccer/football on the beach as it started to rain. The food...was very fresh. I can see this is more of a drinks spot or a beer in the afternoon at the beach.More

Cold beer and great location/views, but food is average at best. My husband and I ordered nachos and tacos that we split. Both were just ok and we had indigestion afterwards. I’d go back for a drink and the view but wouldn’t order food again....Not to mention, for what it was, the food was overpriced.More

The fish was very tasty. Not bad value for what you get and it definitely tasted fresh. The fish tacos were similarly good, but I preferred the whole fish they serve with an accompaniment(s) of chips/plantain/rice/beans. The beer was cold and they offer a decent...2for1 offer for one hour in the evening on selected cocktails. The location is excellent and is right on the beach. The bar was busy with lots of tourists and locals eating and drinking. Overall, I'd definitely recommend a visit. One of the better value restaurants I visited during my time in this part of Costa Rica.More

We enjoyed great mojitos here and a delicious pasta with shrimp and sauce. Very friendly place, lovely to be right on the beach.

this place has the best location, right on the beachfront, but we felt that the food and ambience didn't match up unfortunately. It was expensive for what we ordered. Almost no other clients which should have been a warning sign!

We had dinner while we were in town. The food was delicious! It seems to be a meeting place for a lot of locals. The music was a bit loud, but other then that it was great.

Stopped here for some well deserved beers after zip lining. Bar Olga is convenient to Miss Sky zip lining. Its right on the beach so the views are amazing, and it feels truely local Costa Rican. Grab a beer and hang out for the sunset....Service wasn't the best, but you really just go here to chill out anyway. There is a small gift shop right next to the bar as well.More

We were walking near Olga's and my 5 year old daughter fell and split open her chin. I picked her up and ran to the restaurant. Everyone there dropped what they were doing and immediately helped us. They took us into the bathroom, cleaned her...chin and bandaged her up. Then they gave us all the information for the emergency room and how to get there. The next morning I realized I has left my Ray Ban sunglasses and my daughter's shoes there during the chaos. I went back and the restaurant was closed. They opened the restaurant for me and my sunglasses and her shoes were there behind the counter for us. Thank you for helping us! I will be forever grateful for your kindness.More
