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!

We have been to Ole Ole often, bringing visitors to experience the usual fun of a Spanish evening. However, we have been three times since Easter this year/ Each time has got progressively poorer both with the food and service.
