Sober las Olas sits atop a small cliff overlooking the ocean. The outside seating is the perfect setting for a meal. We ordered the red snapper, which was incredibly fresh and cooked to perfection. The waitstaff were professional and friendly. It was an extremely pleasant experience!

My husband and I had a beautiful dinner outside, overlooking the rocks and waves. I had a shrimp dish and he had a tuna steak. While this was probably the most expensive meal we had in Cahuita, the food and view were both well-worth the price.

This place is so amazing we went back three times! The owner Marco made sure we had exactly what we wanted and Javier and his wife (Im sorry I forgot her name) were the most attentive servers. The whole fish, red snapper, was perfectly done, hot and spicy and sooo delicious! The place is right on the beach and the... More

We had a nice table on the porch. The food was exceptional delicious. We had a filet of the catch of the day - Red Snapper. The service was very dedicated. We would return if we could. Great place!

This restaurant is a little bit of a walk at the outskirts of town, but totally worth it. If you go on the weekend and you want to sit outside, it is recommendable to reserve. It is just gorgeous to sit there for dinner and see the moon rise from the water accompanied by the sound of the 'olas'. The... More

We normally don't return to a restaurant whilst on holiday, trying to experience as many different places as possible, but this place was an exception, we went twice. Once on our own for a romantic dinner and ordered wayyyy too much food, delicious but massive and again with a couple we met on a day tour, for lunch. Fish is... More

We walked in without reservation, first they said they didn't have any table available for us, but then they managed to find a space for us. I had grilled whole red snapper, and that one might be one of the best grilled fish I have had in my life. I saw that they accepted credit cards, so I wanted to... More

After visiting the national park in Cahuita we stopped for lunch at this great place. Got 2 specials that were offered: red snapper and mahi mahi fish that came with rice,vegetables and salad. You could tell that these people take real care of the quality of what they put on your plate. Everything was flavorful and balanced. The service was... More
