The place is filled with bullfighting memorabilia. Small and cozy. Service prompt. Basic simple tabletops but it seems to be off the main drag of American tourists (though we weren't the only ones) so it was sort of a nice getaway. Would definitely go back.

This was one of my favorites. After finding it closed on several times, I talked with the owner of the adjacent store. The restaurant is permanently closed. I am reporting this to Trip Advisors, but it will probably be ignored as have other closed notices I and others have left. Other closed restaurants in SMA that are still listed include... More

We walked a fair distance looking forward to spending our last evening in SM de Allende there only to find it was closed! The woman at the desk in the adjacent hotel told us it had been closed since the beginning of September. She didn't know why.

This is a great little restaurant to get great authentic Mexican food. It's off the beaten path but well worth the trip.

I had been here in years past, and it hasn't changed. I love the chicken and beef fajitas, and the choice of three sauces (I prefer the green). For $8 plate with ample portion, I consider it a value. Be aware it opens in afternoon, and Humberto sings on Monday and Wed afternoons. He is a crooner of romantic ballads.

What a fun place to visit. A bit hidden but worth the walk...and close to good shopping stalls too. Decked out in bullfighting posters and stuffed bull heads, you can feel the Ole! In the smooth, well-balanced margaritas. Not to be missed are the beef fajitas. So tender, they cut with a fork. Craving meat? Visit Ole Ole.

Ole Ole is located very near the Artisans Market, so it is a perfect late lunch spot after a morning of shopping. Keep in mind the restaurant opens at 1:00 p,m. We ate at Ole Ole several times during our stay in San Miguel de Allende. We loved the Mixed Meat, Chicken & Shrimp Brochettes (Shish Kabobs), fresh guacamole &... More

Located not far from the main plaza almost at the bottom of the street called Loreto. This is one of the most enchanting little places you can find. Food is excellent and served with smiles and great salsa and chips. The prices are great and the owners have collected for years bulls heads, poster of bullfights, costumes, and every other... More

Olé Olé is my favorite place to eat fajitas. You have to try them when visiting San Miguel de Allende. First, they will serve you a delicious salsa pasilla served with chips, (i know they are delicious, but try not to eat them all, save a space for the main course) Then, while you wait, ask for a "limonada" or...

We all had the fajitas, because that's what you order here, and we were not disappointed. Unlike the hilarious you-might-burn-your-hands show that is a plate of fajitas at restaurants in the United States, the ones at Ole-Ole were just simple and hot. Not a lot of vegetables, but they're not the focus anyway. Both the chicken and the beef fajitas... More
