About Sobre Las Olas, Cahuita

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!

Sobre Las Olas, Cahuita Reviews

  • We treated ourselves to a meal here (backpacker budget!) and we are so glad we did. The food was fresh and really tasty - I had jumbo shrimp and my partner had the octopus. Neither of us could fault our meals. Chocolate cake for dessert was also very nice!! Service was perfect too. Highly recommend!!

  • A very unassuming and charming restaurant that doesn’t look like much from the roadside. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and spoke English very well. For an appetizer I had swordfish carpaccio which was delicious - I shared a small amount with a kitten that lived at the restaurant; we both enjoyed it. I had grilled sea bass with vegetables for my main and it was done to perfection. My wife had shrimps cooked in a spicy Mexican sauce. We were alone in the restaurant at 7:00pm and it was getting very full by 8:00pm.

  • Seafood is the focus of this restaurant. It is super fresh and well prepared. A great alternative to when you are done with arroz con pollo. Not as expensive as everyone says but main dishes are anywhere from 12-25 dollars. The portions are quite large. They prefer cash but will take a card and add a tax fee.

  • Tropical, local very cosy restaurant for fresh meal with friendly staff. They offer fresh fish cought on the day! View is picturesque above tables there are palm trees where my husband spotted a sloth several times!

  • 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.
