Ole Ole combines an authentic spanish atmosphere (with live flamenco dancing and music) plus a professional service. The tapas is made of good quality produce which sets it apart from some other tapas places in town. It is best to go around 9pm on a Thursday or Friday when they have the live entertainment (which isn't naff or tacky by... More

16 of use ate here as part of a hen party last Friday and I couldn't fault this place one bit. The staff were so helpful to ensure we had everything we needed, the food was amazing and the price was fantastic too at only £30 per head including tapas, paella and alcohol! Usually restaurants struggle with such large parties,... More

The most fun I've ever had in a restaurant ever (apart from downstairs at Famiglia in Lewes - the perfect place to have a surprise party, while Charlotte and Mauro look after you royally) . The food was good. Not the best food in the world, but tasty and great value for money. The best thing about this place is... More

Terrible, terrible inauthentic Spanish food. An insult to Spanish food! Small portions, poor quality, rude and inexperienced staff. Will never go back and would recommend you don't even try! There's better Spanish food in Brighton than this!!

This is a fabulous restaurant. Having been on two consecutive Saturday nights I can confirm that the food is gorgeous and very reasonably priced and the atmosphere is buzzing. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty to show us a good time and the music was sensational.I would highly recommended any one to vist this lovely place

Visited here fairly recently with my family during the day, was empty (not good sign) but we went in anyway. There is a good selection of tapas but the quality is really poor and the portions were tiny. I know the prices are cheap for each dish but it was very slap dash and felt like it was pulled straight... More

Expected Flamenco dancing had singers which was lovely but not what I was told. Food nice smaller dishes than expected and not a huge choice no chicken other than paella. price was fairly good. we ate at Calas and Arrobas about a year ago and I have to say the food was fab and very different.

very nice restaurant with traditional Spanish food if you like tapas, music was good too but no flamenco dancer as advertised on web site. The tables are very packed in - not a lot of room to move and feel like you are sitting on top of each other.
