The drinks are very light on alcohol and we tried them 3 days. Dinner was a disappointment - both tuna and flounder overcooked. Nice presentation but is that what you are eating? Good Caesar salad and enough for two.

Our family enjoyed the nearby wave pools and children's wading pools so we often had lunch served chairside by the friendly waiters of Ola Mulata. The kids enjoyed the nachos with generous melted cheese and beans (enough for 4 people). We also ordered virgin pina coladas and virgin strawberry daquiris for the kids during their two for one happy hour... More

We like Ola Mulata for lunch because it overlooks the beach and has fresh, pick your own fish. Today we shared a 1/2 kg of fresh shrimp in garlic butter that was wonderful! The service was good and the view was a lot of fun, since this is the active part of the beach. I highly recommend this restaurant!

A perfect setting for light meals right beside the beach and children's play area. Service was very good. Panko crusted chicken strips, French fries, hot and crispy were perfect. A stick of fruit, honeydew, papaya and cantaloupe was also included. A full bar was available.

Just been to Ola Mulata, never again. Staying on the resort ( Grand Bliss), so we decided to eat at Ola Mulata. Beautiful setting with great sea views. Service was slow. Ordered the fresh shrimp as we were told by the waiter that they were fresh, & would be grilled. We ordered 1kg shrimp ( for 2 persons). When we... More

Great fish tacos and burgers, wonderful place for lunch. Walk over from the beach or pool for grilled fish, margaritas and people watching. Service is friendly and relaxed.

Excellent snack bar with a grill for specialities, best location rigth on the beach, marine breeze and beatiful landscape, personal attention if the waiters kind of slow.

I could eat here every night. Technically this is the "snack bar" at Grand Mayan pool but it has great food and surprisingly good prices for a hotel restaurant. Portions are very big so it's easy to share. And it has a perfect sunset view over the beach. Fish tacos and fish sandwich are awesome! I wouldn't normally eat chicken... More

It's amazing how many people we talked to around the pool that were unaware of the option of picking out your fresh fish (or shrimp) and having it cooked over charcoal to your specifications. It's served with a salad and rice. And, you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets while feasting on this yummy meal.

Head on shrimp steamed in garlic and oil. Probably the best shrimp I've ever had. Suck the head and savor the intense flavor.
