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.

Quite a bargain on a Monday evening! Two Paellas for two people plus a pitcher of Sangria for $23 per person. In addition to that we shared three tapas plates (one more than we really needed!): - Chorizo a la Sidra Spicy semi-cured mini chorizos braised in infused Asturian tomato-apple cider sauce, - Pintxo de Steak Garlic herb marinated flank...

I went to Ole Tapas on a Thursday evening to celebrate a friend's birthday. I had been once before, on the day before Valentine's day, and really enjoyed it. So I thought my friend might like it for her birthday dinner. We had a great waiter (thanks Casey!) who was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us recommendations of... More
