This is a cozy open air no doors kind of place. Perfect for the beach crowd and very casual. The bartenders Kelly, Ellen and all are fun to talk with and offer great service. The Chile Releno is to die for so to speak. Fresh roasted and full of spicy flavor and sauce everywhere. Good black or refried beans. Great thin, crispy, warm chips and spicy salsa. This place is always busy so get there early.

Enjoy

Stopped in here with my husband on a whim because we were looking for Mexican food for lunch and it was the first place we found. The atmosphere is light and airy which was nice. The food was good, but not spectacular and the menu pretty limited compared to most Mexican restaurants. The service was great so a worthwhile stop for a quick lunch.

We asked the concierege at our hotel where we could get the best Mexican food and Margaritas, she said Las Olas was her favorite place.
I can see why! The service was personal and personable. The Margaritas were the best we've ever had. And the food was great! We are Gluten Free and they didn't even blink when we asked about it. They accomodated our needs and we were delighted. I think we'll be going back later this week...
