Watch the sky streak with the most brilliant orange complimenting perfectly with hues of red and crimson, with hints of blue still lingering in the clouds. As the sun sets behind the horizon, the amazing colours battle with each other pushing away the blackness. The water gleam in the last rays of the sun.  As you watch the waves softly lapping on the beach, sip a Pina colada, and enjoy the aroma of fresh sea food, caught during the day and cooked at night waft through the air. Sobre Las Olas was built to heighten your senses.

The restaurant is situated on the edge of the coral reef overlooking the stunning coastline of Cahuita. There are seats on the beach nestled between palm trees and hammocks to swing from while appetisers such as spicy mussels, and ceviche are served as appetisers.

Flavours of the food served here reflect the fusion of Costa Rican food with Italian, union of husband and wife who run this restaurant. The wide display of cuisine is astonishing. Well-cooked tender fish steaks fall off the bone.  Ranging from langouste, lobsters with fries, swordfish cappachio, fish and chips, spaghetti in mixed seafood, rice with Cameroons, ratatouille, avocado salad, to chocolate cakes and tiramisu, the list is endless. And to top that the chef will prepare food as per your requirements, thus chicken and steak is also on the menu. A generous sprinkling of fresh basil does wonders to the meals. This restaurant has a bar so all meals are accompanied with a beverage of your choice.

The staff are very attentive and cater to your whims. The portion of every meal is very fulfilling and sitting on the waves and enjoying a hearty meal is truly magical.

During the day, a sturdy horse will walk into the water with you riding on it, an experience you will not forget!

There is a sloth in residence as well!

  • Super good food! Be sure to order whatever they post on the wall outside the building. That is what they got fresh. They changed it through out the day as the fishermen bring them their catches. We had two types of octopus and some bruchetta. It was all well prepared and presented. Great views and you can sit on tables out back to see the beach and get the breeze.

  • The main meal was a little bit expensive but it was well served. Even the entrance meal was well served. Juices are made with real fruit and I would recommend the Ceviche. You can go there after leaving the Cahuita Park.

  • We went here in February 13 thinking it was Valentine's Day! We did not figure that out until the next day. This place is not inexpensive but the quality and presentation was fantastic. We got a table right next to the Caribbean so we got to enjoy the waves while dining. Service was top notch and the good came out very quickly. We both had the catch of the day and finished our meal with a banana split and she had chocolate cake with ice cream. We would have went back out for the real Valentine's Day but they are closed Tuesdays. I left my hat at the table and the owner met me at 3 PM to give me back my hat. Wonderful caring people.

  • Fresh seafood, best in town but pricey

  • Good food. Nicely located right on the edge of the water. Not super expensive but not cheap. Good seafood and pasta ( that would be made better if they had Parmesan cheese) do not order the tiramisu it was the worst, that is why the 4 stars and also the owner is a smoker that walks around the outside of the property and chain smokes. The smoke makes it's way into the restaurant.
