It is definitely worth the drive to go to Loiza, which is on the coast outside San Juan, to eat at Donde Olga. Freshly made, very, good food and really reasonable prices. Service was very attentive and variety of offerings in food specialties of Puerto Rico was outstanding. Many other scenic restaurants on the beach in the immediate area, but... More

Everytime my family and I have a seafood craving, this is the place we visit. The seafood is fresh and besides others experience, we had no problem with the customer service. I always recommend this place.

Very good service, the food quality and consistency is excelent. I stop here frequently for lunch since I work close by. They have alcapurrias, pinchos, and ceviche if you are in the mood for something quick. They also have a variety menu for family celebrations, or just lunch/dinner gatherings.

Our driver took us here while touring the San Juan area. We would never have stopped here on our own (it's just a small local dive). But what great food! So glad we stopped here!

The place was packed when we arrived for dinner. The address is just a kilometer marker along a beach road lined with restaurants but worth seeking out. Nothing formal about this place. Drop in on your way to or from the beach. Olga's has all types of seafood and local food. My husband had shrimp mofongo while I had plantains... More

A definite must see in Puerto Rico. Authentic food, gracious hosts, and super fresh and cheap. The owner even sells her own hot sauce.

Had the churrasco, don't forget the ketchup mayo for the tostones. My Mom had a bistec encebbollado, it was too salty but we let them know. The fritura is fresh, yummy hot crispy alcapurrias. I wish to return to try some more frituras. A lady was selling roses and stuffed animals - I bought some for my Mom's b-day. When... More
