For all the hipster, organic, vegetarians out there, this is the place for you! Besides being a restaurant, they also sell organic greens, organic eggs, whole seed breads, gluten-free baked goods, coconut oil, spirulina, and anything else hip and healthy you can think of...with a new yoga studio attached (well, it's an "old" Managua yoga studio that relocated). The owner... More

Good service and people. Relaxing atmosphere. I don't think the people here appreciate proper organic and healthy food too much. Only negative would be the limited menu which is understandable for the options of organic varieties in country.

It was a very unique experience we ever had in Nicaragua. Starting with the delicious and healthy food but most important the excellent service we received. I highly recommend this place to everyone. I would love to be there every single day. It's a perfect place to relax with friends, having a nice glass of wine and enjoy the music.

We first went to Ola Verde about 6 years ago when they were still located in Los Robles by Zona Hippo. We found the food then to be fresh, creative and delicious. We went back often until 2013 when we moved away. We couldn't wait to go back now that we are visiting in the area. I don't know what... More

I mentioned to a Nicaraguan friend that I was eating mostly vegan, and she suggested Ola Verde. The restaurant is run by an American who is simply dedicated to having great healthy food available for people. There are many choices on the menu for a vegetarian or vegan, and they are very tasty. The salads and soups are varied, and... More

This is one of our favorite spots in Nicaragua. They really do a great job creating flavorful dishes and consistently have great service. If you are looking for a fresh and healthy meal, this should be your first choice.

We just eat at Ola Verde and we had a great experience. The food was amazing, with a lot of choice. Next to normal meat and vegetarian dishes they have a lot of gluntenfree and vegan options. Service was nice and a lovely chef who even brought us home. We def would recommend their place.

Description
Our dishes are created to be deliciously healthy, are made with respect for local growers, food ecology, and to showcase local ingredients. We offer vegetarian and meat, fish, chicken options. Our staff are well-paid and respected for their professionalism. Mon-Saturday 7 am - 11 pm. Sunday 8am - 9 pm. We have been in business in Managua since 2003. Proceeds from the restaurant are used to help the Ola Verde Foundation (Fundación Ola Verde), a local NGO that designs educational materials about making consumer food habits healthier using natural locally produced ingredients. We have recently remodeled the interior terrace, now called the Secret Garden, and usually have musicians or performing artists for cultural nights on weekends. Please check facebook for program information.
