Despite the three hen parties around us, we still really enjoyed our night, although more for the flamenco than quality of food. This restaurant only needs to tweak a few things to become one of THE places to visit in town!

This place is amazing! Id recomend booking a table for Friday/Saturday nights as it gets completely full at 8.30pm. The tapas dishes we had were amazing (brie with honey, chorizo in cider, meatballs) were gorgeous and well priced at £4 - £4.50 each. We then had a chicken paella which was so tasty! Dessert was creme catalana and this tipped... More

What a great time you can have here. Traditional Spanish tapas, good food and service. Saturday night they had a flamenco dancer, and duo which made for great entertainment during the meal. In a great area down The Lanes ! Well worth a vist. DS Enfield UK

The food was authentic Spanish with specials all lovingly described by our waiter in great depth. Although we only had a few dishes they were all amazing and the service was great. Would we go again - si.

We had a work evening out here during the busy Xmas season. We had pre-booked our table but a few of us ended up running late but the staff were very accommodating and were happy to wait for all of our party to arrive and not making us change tables. The food was yummy...being a big group we ordered most... More

Great tapas restaurant far more in line with a traditional tapas bar in Spain. Too many restaurants attempt to replicate but get the pricing or the food wrong (iberico chain gets the pricing badly wrong. Tapas shouldn't be over £7 per dish!). Ole ole has a great holiday atmosphere with great value fantastic quality food. The steak on hot plate... More

We sat outside although there are only two tables outside and the street scene in the Laines not the most vibrant here. As it turned out, when the Flamenco began indoors, this was actually quite a good position, not wishing to have too noisy a distraction to our supper. Very friendly and helpful waiters and good guidance on the specials... More

A couple of the students are regulars so booked us all in.. Good atmosphere on a Friday night - lively. Male dancer - excellent mover, though I'd have preferred a female in a frilly dress. Some yobs taking the mickey out of him, though can't blame the restaurant for that. The stage is very small and I just happened to... More

This was a first visit. Staff were pleasant and food was lovely. The dancing started by a male dancer at about 8.30 pm, but as I was still eating I had to keep turning around to see it. I felt this spoilt me enjoying the food. This restaurant has a nice cosy feel to it though and the staff have... More
