The food here is excellent and with imagination. It is very attractively presented with many different dishes on the menu. They also have excellent desserts. Ola Verde also has a store where they sell hard to find fresh herbs and cheeses.

Good service and people. Relaxing atmosphere. I don't think the people here appreciate proper organic and healthy food too much. Only negative would be the limited menu which is understandable for the options of organic varieties in country.

Our dishes are created to be deliciously healthy, are made with respect for local growers, food ecology, and to showcase local ingredients. We offer vegetarian and meat, fish, chicken options. Our staff are well-paid and respected for their professionalism. Mon-Saturday 7 am - 11 pm. Sunday 8am - 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.
