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!

Best seafood and best spot around there. The family staff is nice and they know how to make the best out of there fish. I'll come back.
First of all I will give a compliment to the service. It was very very friendly and quick! The menue was fantastic. We had the catch of the day with Caribbean sauce and the grilled chicken breast. Both were very juicy and delicious! I think it is the best restaurant in town! Great job guys!
Great food, kids loved pasta and fish. We had steak and chicken. A touch more expensive BUT portion sizes are great. 2 steaks, 2 chicken breasts. Service was fantastic. Well worth a visit.
Fantastic restaurant short walk from main town. Gorgeous fresh food. Friendly staff.
Great food and exceptional service! We had the fish of the day, red snapper, and arroz con camarones (rice and shrimp -pictured). The fish was fresh and flavourful, with not too much batter (some restaurants is all batter) and the shrimp was delicious! Great wine selection and charming environment. The staff is friendly and attentive and we got our food very quickly! Definitely recommend this place if you’re looking for good sea food!
