My wife and I were here for happy hour while the kitchen prepared for dinner. The carrot salad and the patatas bravas was awesome. With a full bar and an allergy friendly kitchen, this is a great place for happy hour and dinner. Best place on Shore Drive!

Enjoyed a lovely tapas meal at La Orilla. Everything served is cooked fresh at the restaurant (even the bread and butter). The waitresses have great knowledge of the menu and made some great recommendations. Crab cakes were amazing. Best tapas I have ever had! Sangria was also delicious

My 7 year old daughter picked this place and we were expecting a better than average tapas experience...well, we were pleasantly surprised - I can't remember a better tapas experience. Everything was perfect - from the outdoor seating to our mojito, tapas, paella, and deserts. Matt really wowed us with every dish - bursting with local flavors with his own unique twist. Matt came out to say hello and then surprised us with a dish of Boquerones - they were remarkable...my 7 year old ate most of them and gave him a big thumbs up. This place is a MUST and a nice break from the traditional Maine Lobsta.

Lots of eating places available in Ogunquit, we walked around & looked at menus. Chose La Orilla, & really glad we did, great menu, lots of options for large & small plates. We chose carrot salad, paths brava, crab cakes & tagliatelle pasta, all were really fresh & full of flavour, great wine choices too. loved it

We sat by the vegetable garden overlooking the river having a drink while waiting for a table. From the Scallop Crudo and Smoked Arctic Chard and Patatas Bravas (!) to thePork Belly Skewers, Spanish Octopus, Charred Asparagus and Seared Sirloin our expectations were exceeded at every turn. The timing of each dish's arrival was impeccable, the service great and the overall ambiance (al fresco) hit the mark perfectly. This was our second time here and it won't be our last.
