Came here with a big group of friends for tapas. Overwhelmed by the variety and quality of the tapas provided. There was so much to cater to all tastes it was very impressive. I have even tried things I had never heard of such as deep fried brie in a sesame and honey sauce? Delicious!! To top it off they... More

Our first few minutes were spend with the waiter telling us what was not on the menu and that we should come on a Thursday - Sat (we went Sunday) when it was much better. I did ask at that point would we be better just leaving? He hurriedly said no and was sure we would have a lovely meal!... More

One word - Wow. Boquerones, Chorizo in cider, And the patatas bravas are amazing, take it from a Spaniard. Catch the flamenco at the weekend too, and this is the closest you'll get to a Real Spanish experience for miles. Will go back again and again

Went to Ole Ole for a first day. It's was very relaxed and the staff were attentive but not in your face. The food was delicious and we had a great evening. Would highly recommend this for couples and friends. Next time I'm going to try the paella.

We visited as a group of 14 on a hen night based on good reviews we'd seen but I was sadly disappointed, whilst the entertainment and music were great we'd paid for a set menu of £20 each and the dishes started pouring out, they were mediocre....bread and alioli (mayonnaise I thought) Pate, salami, chorizo, garlic mushrooms, anchovies, garlic prawns,...

We were a group booking. The entertainment was fun but the food very bland not the usual Spanish quality Wouldn't visit again I'd go round the corner to Don Carlos for authentic food.

The tapas dishes were not the best I've had, and I thought the choice a bit limited. However, this restaurant has a great ambience and I wish we had time to stay a bit longer to enjoy the show that looked about to start on the small stage.
