New Lolita in town !

by Gary and Jolene

There’s a new girl in town, meet Lolita. Lolita is the new mascot for Lola’s Restaurant and she is absolutely adorable! The restaurant is named after the late Lola, the mischievous, big pig who used to bathe in the surf out front. These days, Lolita can be found frolicking in the surf or taking a siesta under the trees in the afternoon. If you go to Lola’s just ask one of the wait staff where she is and they will point you in the right direction.
Lola’s is one of the nicest beach restaurant and bars in Costa Rica. It is also my favorite place to frequent on Sunday afternoons or on any day of the week for that matter. Lola’s in on the beach in Playa Avellanas, a short, 20 minute drive south of Tamarindo.  It offers stylish, comfortable beach furniture under the palm trees with spectacular front row views of the beach. The setting is semi Robinson Crusoe, a place you just can pass up.
The owners, Don and Christy, have done an amazing job attracting tourist and locals alike. The food is fantastic and has something for everyone on the menu. The wait staff is friendly and attentive making sure all your dining needs are met. You are never rushed and can lounge all day in either the hammocks or in a beach chair enjoys their menu of tropical fruit drinks.
Lola’s is a great place to watch the sunset, enjoy swimming in the gentle surf, or just kick back have a drink and watch the surfers. If you have been to Tamarindo and never been to Lola’s put it on your list of things to do when in town.
Lola’s is open Tuesday through Sunday 8:00am to 6:00pm, remember to bring some cash, they do not accept credit cards.

  • Agreed 100%. I visited for the first time in May, and had the pleasure of meeting Christi and Don. Their hospitality and wonderful food make it all to easy easy to spend the entire day lounging in their shady oasis by the sea.
