Out of business. It was okay while it lasted but with either a lack of marketing or too many ethnic restaurants was their death.

Very conveniently located to the beach and park. Very quick and efficient service and an excellent meal and very reasonably priced! Authentic décor with many interesting articles to enjoy while waiting and eating. Well worth a visit again.

The restaurant is conveniently located on the main thoroughfare and you can easily feed a hungry family quickly, healthily and affordably. Just don't expect an authentic Mexican dining experience. The good: This restaurant appears to be very popular with local families and seniors as there was a steady flow of what looked like regular diners, all enjoying hearty meals. The... More

Nice little find - good food, great service, kid friendly. We were looking for a reasonably priced restaurant for 4 adults and 3 small kids to have a quick lunch and this little spot turned out to be a very pleasant surprise.

We were at the Parksville Night Market around dinner time so looked around for dining options and spotted this Mexican restaurant in a small shopping plaza. It’s very unassuming-looking from the outside, so we were a bit hesitant, but once in the door we were pleasantly surprised. The décor is simple but Mexican souvenir-y. Cute. The staff was friendly and... More

We came to Ole's for a quick visit on our way to Qualicum. We had heard it was the only Mexican-food restaurant in Parksville/Qualicum Beach and were excited to try it. The server was really nice, very helpful and pleasant, but the food was ridiculous. First off, we are used to authentic Mexican food and thought that's what we were... More

Appetizer salad and two smaller than I'm used to Burritos...make mine spicy please! I enjoyed the whole affair. The other 3 with me enjoyed their orders but had to spend $15.00... More

Sure they have a lot of Mexican paraphernalia but that's where the authentic Mexican ends. I couldn't smell food when we came in and it wasn't busy right at noon -- we should have realized and walked out then. My chile relleno was not even close to being authentic, not even close. My husband's burrito was almost authentic but really... More
