We really enjoy visiting La Ola Verde. We have had lasagnas, soups and pasta and everything is fresh, delicious and healthy. Desserts are something out of a dream! Special mention to the waiters. Very nice and informed about the dishes and properties of the ingredients.

It is a quite nice place where any vegan will be happy. Fish swimming in a pond. It is nice to go with a couple or friends, sometimes there are not very many clients.

Derek, thank you for your review! Ola Verde unfortunately had to take a pause -- the situation in Nicaragua was posing safety challenges for our farmers and in-house staff, so we decided to give our people the liberty of staying home with their families. That...More

I had an amazing spinach and tomato dish, with onion and garlic, topped with parmesan! Couldn’t finish it and was amazed at how filling it was without pasta! Service was terrific, and they helped me stop a yuk yuk for my ride home!

Our dishes are created to be deliciously healthy, are made with respect for local growers, food ecology, and to showcase local ingredients. We offer vegan, vegetarian and meat, fish, chicken options. Our staff are well-paid and respected for their professionalism. Mon-Saturday 11 am - 11 pm. Sunday 11am - 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. Our organic food store and take-out delicatessen open 8 am - 10 pm each day except Sunday at 11 am - 9pm.
