La Olada

Uruguayan in José Ignacio

Hidden away on a residential back street (look for the life preserver out front), La Olada embodies José Ignacio's casual-chic vibe. People play ping-pong on the open-air front patio, while inside, candlelight and wood-burning clay ovens cast a cozy glow on diners noshing on grilled meats and fish, toothsome fresh-baked bread, chipirones (squid), homemade ravioli, pizza and local wines.
