Muy bien!

Menu covered a range of standard tapas dishes. All dishes were very well cooked and good value for money. The 6 dishes we had were some of the best tapas we've had in Brighton, not overly oily or salty like some others tried. Friendly staff, good atmosphere. Looking to visit again very soon!

Fantastic tapas: garlic mushrooms to die for, Brie fritta with honey was yummy. reasonably priced. Flamingo dancing was great entertainment as we ate. Dessert was creme caramel and churrios, didn't disappoint. Well worth a visit !!!!

Had a lovely meal with family here on Friday night. Booked at lunchtime - good job as it was heaving!! Tried the paella as well as the tapas. All was very authentic. Good choice, well executed and very tasty. Matched tapas we have had in Seville! Also had Flamenco singers and dancer, which were also very enjoyable. Would highly recommend... More

This is the second time I have visited here. This time with my partner. We decided to go to Brighton for the day, knowing what a lovely place this was the first time we came, it was a no brainer to come again. We are so glad we did, we had been looking forward to it since the last time.... More

Had a wonderful lunch on 5th Aug 2015. We had 6 tapas (£3.95 - £7 ea) and seafood paella (£30) Fried brie is my girls' favourite and we had to order another portion. Wild mushroom croquettes and calamares was excellent. 4 of us, our bill comes to £92. Service is a bit slow but in typical Spanish style. Excellent food,... More

Small family group enjoyed a range of delicious tapas. All well cooked, full of flavour and very reasonably priced. Loved the wild mushroom croquettes and wonderful gambas in chilli and garlic.

Just down the Lanes, Ole Ole is a great little find. We stopped for lunch and had some of the tapas dishes: gorgeous garlic prawns, really lovely meatballs with a homemade tomato sauce, great Spanish omelette, patatas bravas and the most amazing goats cheese with a crust of honey - lovely! Only downside was the cigarette end under my table!... More

I'm Spanish and I can say the food cooked here is very good and traditional. The owners are kind and funny and know so much about the food they serve. The flamenco is amazing! Great place to go with friends for a night out!

I can't recommend this place enough. The gentlemen who served us was a wealth of knowledge regarding the food and was kind and helpful throughout. A great mixed crowd was there and its location is great to. There is a stage there for music aswell so going back soon
