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

I returned to Ole after a long time and found the place to be in the same good condition. The manager is still the same for years which is quite rear in Hong Kong. All the tapas we tasted were great - want to point out the Boquerones. The paella is good for 2 people. The only down side were... More

The staff and atmosphere is great, service was as you'd expect and the ambiance from the 2 piece band exceptional... That's where it ended. We were encouraged to have the Paella.. We ordered a chicken and a pork. The chicken smelt like a live wet chicken, it was also not chicken pieces but chunks of chicken attached to the bone.... More

Paella average, drinks very expensive. Entertainment very good. Plenty of better options if on vacation. $400 AUD bill for 4 mains, 3 desserts and sangria.

An unprepossessing entrance leads you into true Mediterranean charm. The look and feel are very Spanish giving a wonderful out of Hong Kong experience. The menu is packed with great food I especially recommend the sea bass and suckling pig, the tapas menu is faultless, portion size perfect. Great wine list as well. the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The... More

Quite good Spanish restaurant in Hong Kong, especially the paella is tasty, can be a bit crowded from time to time, nice selection of olives. Have Spanish beer. Bread almost as good as in Spain or Italy.

I remember this meal vividly. Take a nice walk down the Hollywood Street / Lang Kwai Fong Area to work up an appetite and head here. The squid ink rice and suckling pig were to DIE for. It isn't cheap, but this is as authentic a Spanish food experience as you're going to get in Asia.

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.
