Good hamburgers, fries, salads, and great breakfast. Not fancy food - just clean food. There's free coffee in the morning (if you don't mind the small cups).

We tried two juice blends which were awesome, Nothing better than cold, refreshing juice while you bake in the sun and watch the beach activities. We also had the tortilla soup for lunch one day...it was a tomato base with sour cream, avocado and tortilla strips....very tasty!

Everything from the wait staff to the wonderfully prepared food to the drinks are all just perfect! I highly recommend the ceviche and try their Margaritas and Spicy Bloody Marys and Smoothies! Perfect place to eat every time!

We had a great time at Las Olas. The fish and shrimp tacos were light and tasty. The Margarita on the rocks and virgin mangorita were freshly made. The location is beautiful and overlooks the dunes. Service was super. The Restaraunt is located at the inner edge of the Peninsula Condo Resort. We were picked up by staff in a... More

We ate outside for breakfast and enjoyed a great view. The food is served in styrofoam containers that try to blow away on a windy day. We both enjoyed the chilaquilies and the service was good. Price was reasonable.
