We stumbled upon this restaurant and decided to dine here. We were not disappointed! Expensive menu but totally worth it. Fresh seafood and impeccable service. Very romantic and beachfront. The property was gorgeous. Private and secluded

We found Vista de Olas during accommodation research. Although we decided not to stay here (Airbnb was the way to go) we knew we had to stop by for drinks! It's a fun (bumpy) drive up, great for ATVs and there's parking right by the...More
