“Absolutely fab. Real Spanish food and great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Always a good sign when the staff and diners are Spanish. Super tapas (not sure about the croquetas de queso). Patatas bravas really good (and I've had then all round Spain). Highligh was the live music. Really really enjoyed it. Keep it up!

“Fantastic little Tapas Bar and Restaurant hidden in the Brighton Lanes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

On a short family break on a Friday our family of 2 adults and 2 kids sought some tasty homely food and we struck gold by coming across Ole Ole. The menu offered great options and was great value for money. The staff were very attentive and child friendly too. Some live music was about to begin but we had to leave early, but were tempted to come back later to hear some tunes.
The food was genuinely some of the best that I had tasted and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will come again. Highly recommended.

“Drive to Brighton, arrived in Spain!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

First week in January, was only there 3 days but ended up eating here twice.
The food is simple, and very very tasty! We can all find fault with anything in life, I could pick holes in this place with decor or inexpensive table cloths, but my experience was one that allows me to easily overlook the small bits and concentrate on enjoying whats brilliant about the place, congratulating these guys on a job well done.
In addition, the traditional Spanish entertainment was a treat which just made us want to go back time and time again.
If you have rated this venue as anything less than "good"... Check the mirror, the problem might be you! ;-)
