The restaurant is amazing. Staff very friendly. We went with our small son, and they prepared something special he liked. The food is amazing. My main course, the salmon was the best salmon dish I ever had. Definitely a place to go

We travelled to South Beach with another couple to celebrate a 50th birthday. Our hotel concierge recommended Ola for dinner. We loved it - great atmosphere and delicious food. We especially enjoyed the cocktail menu, the ceviche and the 'cigar' dessert. We would definitely recommend...More
