The restaurant has a great sea view. The menu is extensive and the food great. However service may be slow, need patience.

The service and the food is very good. Prices are not so cheap but in El Salvador in general sea food is not cheap. Parking could be a little complicated since its located in a residential neighborhood. But it is definitely a "go to restaurant!"

La Hola Betos, which is its complete name, is one of the best Seafood Restaurants I´ve have been to. Their Menu is incredible. It is very Rich and with lot`s of choices. Try the Stuffed Bell Pepper and you won`t regret it.

Great food and service. Reasonable prices and good ambiance. Well locates in a residentail area and near a The Crown Plaza Hotel. If you like sea food this is the place to go.

Having just arrived in San Salvador we asked our cab driver to drop us at a "typical" restaurant in the Zone Rosa and he took us to La Hola. The food was great but very expensive! I had a prawn salad (four prawns) and a margarita for $17. My buddy had ceviche which was $10 and extremely good.

If you go to San Salvador, this is a place you have to visit. Seafood is well prepared and served, always full with local people and the classical environment that invites you to return. At night they have karaoke and the place turns into a fun and entertaining site.

The food is great! Ceviches are their specialty but be sure to order their appetizers! The "arañitas", washimis and "volcan de mariscos" are amazing. The down side is that service is slow. Worth the wait though.

Thank Maru C
