I was in the area and heard good reviews about this restaurant. The interior is well decorated and quaint. Would have loved to eat in but did not have the time. The staff was very friendly and I can only imagine the service if I had stayed to dine in. I ordered arroz con pollo and the meal was... read more

Food is very good, that is true however we found it very expensive. When dining with kids you usually get a drink included with the meal but we had to pay $3.50 for a pineapple juice over and above. Didn't feel we got value for money as we left having paid twice the price of other local restaurants but were... More

My wife and I spent an enjoyable evening sampling the delicious delicacies at Ole Tapas. We started with the Tabla Del Chef, assortment of Spanish cheeses and cured meats, the chef made some tasty choices to offer us. Then onto the Shrimp Ceviche, very fresh shrimp with the right amount of citrus. The Queso Frito & Queso Jerezano, both fried... More

We had lunch there and very nice and quite restaurant. Food was good! The price is not cheap but not too high. We were pretty full and felt good about this restaurant. I think it will be lots of guests for dinner.

We had a vegetarian and one who needed gluten free plus another who avoided dairy. Admittedly that means three issues....however; we found our meal was not only very delayed...it was more seriously not appropriately prepard in spite of that delay...there did not appear to be an effort from the kitchen or management to make sure we were happy after the...

Another amazing dining experience at Ole Tapas. Although its location in a strip mall along a non-descript highway, do not let that dissuade you from checking it out. I have eaten there MANY times since it opened and have not been disappointed. Last night continued that streak. The featured Ceviche was absolutely amazing. Have recently developed a love for the...

We've been going to Ole Tapas for several years and have never been disappointed before. We took my brother in law and his extended family there for his birthday and everyone was pleased. Stopped in last week and tried a couple of items from their new menu and were both disappointed. They weren't "bad" they were just average.

We had a very nice dinner at the Ole Tapas Lounge/Restaurant located in Newark DE. The food is excellent and the service is the finest. We will be back for their special fair.
