OPENED SINCE 1998 IN HONG KONG AS THE BRAIN-CHILD OF VETERAN RESTAURATEUR, MR. CARMELO LOPEZ. A NATIVE SPANISH HIMSELF, HE CAME TO ASIA IN THE 70'S BUT WAS STILL NOSTALGICALLY ATTACHED TO THE RICHNESS AND EXQUISITE TASTE OF THE CUISINE OF HIS MOTHERLAND. OLE WAS CREATED FROM THIS CRAVE FOR AUTHENTICITY! JUST EXPERIENCE THE GENUINE TOUCH OF SPAIN THE MOMENT YOU STEP INSIDE THE RESTAURANT: THE LEMON YELLOW PLASTERED WALLS AND GLAZED TERRACOTTA TILES OF THE MEDITERRANEAN, THE LIGHTING FIXTURE AND THE DECORATIVE POTTERIES DIRECTLY FLOWN FROM SPAIN. ALL THESE ELEMENTS COMBINED TO RECREATE A UNIQUE AND COZY ATMOSPHERE THAT GOES HAND IN HAND FOR THE ENJOYMENT ONE OF THE WORLD'S FINEST CUISINES. THE EXTENSIVE VARIETY OF DELICACIES, PERFECT WITH THE SPANISH WINES, SANGRIA OR CHILLED BEERS. LIVE GUITAR MUSIC THROUGHOUT THE EVENING GRACEFULLY EXHILARATES A RELAXING AND ENJOYABLE MOOD.

Nice Paella

We had our firm Xmas party at Ole. I had the Seafood Paella which is one of Ole's signature dishes. The Paella was really good and worth the visit alone. Recommended.

I went to Ole in the past and loved it, but this time, I was a bit disappointed. It wasn't as good as last time. We ordered the suckling pig and we were served a bunch of bones with little meat on them. We also ordered the paella and the fideua and used the size of paellas in Spain where... More

Definitely the most amazing Spanish food you will ever try. Located on the night wild life area "Lan Kwai Fong", the restaurant offers a cozy atmosphere with a wide menu basically including Spanish food. You can also find Spanish music, Mexican music and the famous "chupito" when the food is over (a shot of handmade fruit liquor). You have to... More

This restaurant has great staff and a great atmosphere. The paella was splendid and the musical accompaniments of "Guantanamera" and "La Bamba" were the metaphorical 'icing on the cake'. A fabulous Spanish wine list to boot.

The location is convenient for a nice dinner before heading to LKF area for some follow-up drinks. Very authentic Spanish restaurant with friendly and attentive staff and owners / manager who likes to sing with a band whilst guests enjoy some of the tapas on offer. The wines on the menu are plentiful and everyone will find something here. The... More

I had given up hope to find a decent genuine Spanish restaurant in Hong Kong but I was most pleasantly surprised when I tried Ole. The food is authentic Spanish food, exactly as it is in Spain, no twists, no gimmicks and no disastrous attempts to be "creative". Quality ingredients, skillfully cooked and nicely presented together with a lovely athmosphere... More

In an ever changing environment like Hong Kong, this place in the heart of Hong Kong offers a steady and reliable offering for the past 15 years+. That is quite an achievement.

This Spanish restaurant has been around in HK for quite a while, which is a sure sign that it is sufficiently popular to withstand the high rent. I have been to Madrid and Barcelona and my palate tells me their paella is as good as, if not better than whatever I had tasted before in Spain. Of special note, is... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
