Description: Bar Olga's is one of the older and authentic Costa Rican restaurants in the Nosara area. Olga's is located on the beach with a wonderful ocean view. This is a fun, family beach and the favorite place to watch sunset for many locals. The food is good, the prices are very reasonable and sometimes there is free WIFI. Be sure to visit Olga's while you are in Nosara.

“Nice place in front of the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Nice place, with a great view of Pelada beach.
Food is good, and has a good price also.

You can get to the beach, came out and enjoy some food/beverages, as it's really close.

Service is good, very friendly people

“Incredible lobster dinner and margaritas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

We ended up at Olga's for dinner while in Nosara. My husband had the lobster and his plate came out with three lobsters (for about $20) - very good and fresh! We had margaritas that were the best ever - drink them slowly as they are very strong! This place is a must try if you are staying in Nosara.

“Bar vs. Restsurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014 via mobile

Olga's is a nice little bar and restaurant. At first sight it looks like a bar. But there is also a restaurant. The restaurant has very good food. Every thing from fried chicken, to nachos, to fist tacos. The fish tacos are very good. But be warned your server might as 1 or 2 tacos. By that they mean 1 or 2 plates if tacos with two tacos each. The one bad thing about this restaurant is the service is a little slow. But don't let this dissuade from going because the service is still pretty fast. The food there is great. The price range of the restaurant is medium.

“Hit the spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

My husband and I had just arrived in town and wanted some lunch. I remembered Olga's from my first visit to Nosara 6 years ago. The location is nice, on the water, and the food is sufficient.

“Relaxed and very casual hangout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

We stopped in for a beer at Olga's a couple times on our visit to the Nosara area. It has a more local vibe compared to other places in the area and is a comfortable spot to grab a drink in the shade, with lovely views. It is one of only a couple bars/restaurants right on the beach, and you can walk over there from Playa Guiones. We hoped to order ceviche or fish on our second visit ( a Monday) but were told that they had run out of food after the weekend and only beverages were available. Will definitely check it out again on our next trip to the area!
