Description: 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.

“Best fish tacos in Puerto”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

These were definitely the best fish tacos I have ever tasted! We went to La Olita for a late lunch and my partner and I ordered one serving of fried fish tacos and one of grilled fish tacos as per the owners recommendation. Both just as great filled with lots of fresh toppings! Each serving had 3 massive tacos so it basically became our tea too!

A long with the great tacos, La Olita also serves refreshing drinks such as big jugs of fresh juice, it also plays really good tunes, has a cool decor and a nice owner who makes the food himself and is up for a chat about the town with great information

We would defiantly go back here if we had the chance, but unfortunately we only discovered this on our last night!

Thanks La Olita!

The best fish tacos i've tried in Puerto Escondido. Great food, great prices, great portions. Staff is really friendly. I've noticed that food is carefully prepared with fresh ingredients. The fish tacos were my favourite part. I'm planning to come back soon

Exactly what we expected from all of the positive reviews! Delicious, fresh, tasty, reasonably priced food. We tried two different types of fish tacos, recommended by the owner. Great atmosphere, chilled music and friendly owner. Don't miss out, you must eat here if you're visiting Puerto!

“small Restaurant- grande cuisine!!!!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Unfortunately we only ate once in "La Olita", but this was since a long time ago one of the best (!!)dinner ever, during our time now in mexico. The guys, who are very into healthy and fresh food, offers you for sure a very friendly and very obliging service. We tried the fish and the chicken tacos, which were full of fresh vegetables and an indescribable delicious sauce....Also the guacamole tasted very fresh and especially (fresh) selfmade.
We only can recommend everybody who visit puerto escondido this fantaaaastic restaurant who wants to get an excellent meal for a cheap price!! by the way even the liquados and fresh juices were pretty refreshing and excellent for a hot day!!!Taste it- you will love it!!!!!

greetings to the owner graco from the munich girls.
