I'm Mexican, so I've tried many many taco places. This is not your regular fish taco. La olita's secret recipe is insanely good. Give it a try and you might find yourself coming back every night, just as we did.

Awesome atmosphere, and best tacos in town (big call but best Taco we had in Mexico too I'd say). The fish and shrimp tacos were so good we went back again. Also the cafe mezcal (mezcal coffee shot) is something everyone should try!

Having had the real deal in Ensenada 30 years ago, the true test of great fish tacos is an ample amount of a nice white fish.While the tacos here are crunchy and have great foo foo type fixings the actual fish is pretty mediocre. Not...More

It's a fun little place with a great selection of taco's and other fair. Portions are a decent size, you may only need one entree.

Delicious tacos at a great price. Great vibe with friendly staff and great music. The (freshly made) spicy peanut sauce took everything to the next level.

Hey, we are a team of young people running this restaurant in puerto escondido. After 4 months of building up the place we are so happy to present you our beautiful "restaurancito" in la bajada de las brisas, Zicatela. This place is completely hand and homemade. We put up the walls..There was cardbord before, and we built up the bar, painted the whole place and tried to offer a nice atmosphere with lots of plants. We can actually cook everything for you, on the menu we basically have great fishtacos, Crepes, Mexican Food and delicious FruitShakes and TropicaJuices. We try to be very flexible and find out what our costumers really like. We just opened one year ago and so far we are really happy about the people that came to eat to our place. Since we are not on the mainstreet in zicatela..(You just have to go up the street direction "carretera" as if you would like to go to La Punta) we are not only focused in the tourism. We try to satisfy both sides..The Mexicans and people from all over the world. We do shopping in the morning and open at 03:00pm. We close at 10:00 pm. We keep our prices low since we dont wanna get rich with a few people. For us its nicer to have a great movement in our place and to get to know all diferent kind of people which are happy to come back again because they know that we offer quality and good prices. We are looking forward to see u in LA OLITA, oh and travel recomandations are for free.
