I visited this restaurant on a night that they had flamenco dancing. So fun..the food was really good. Had the clams, shrimp and asparagus. No complaints whatsoever. The chef brought out a few extra dishes, all of which were wonderful. Great service. Delicious sangria. I will visit again.

I went here because a friend of mine was dancing that night. They have Flamenco dancing on the first Saturday. I was pleasantly surprised with the food. It was delicious. I did mention to my hubby that the appetizers were a little small for the price, but they tasted wonderful. We ordered the paella as our main course. The menu... More

This went from being one of my favorites to the "do not return for awhile" list. There were 2 ladies at the bar when we walked in. They were having a communications issue trying to order and we ran into the same issue. There were multiple menus and I asked if an item was a tapas or a plate (it... More

My family and I visited Ole Tapas for the first time after receiving a gift card from a friend who loves the restaurant. We were not sure what to expect since none of us had ever tried tapas. The restaurant also doesn't look like much since the storefront is in a strip mall. However, we had one of the best... More

I live nearby so have been several times over the past few years. I forget at times that it is a great little place that does not feel small town but provides local attention with a bigger city feel. Great small plates. Broad appeal wines. Friendly.

Our friends in Hockessin wanted to share this wonderful Tapas restaurant with us, since we all love tapas. They are going to Spain in a month, so they wanted to try out some Spanish food. And their mojitos were amazing. We ordered so many different plates of tapas and the food was excellent. We were stuffed. The chef came out... More

Took my wife here for dinner this weekend. The menu is quite diverse, offering both many types of tapas as well as other dishes. We pigged out on the tapas! Every dish was perfectly prepared and the service can only be described as perfect. The staff was there when we wanted them and unobtrusive otherwise. Also, the decor is quire... More

This restaurant was a great choice for dinner with our daughter because we all have different food preference. We ordered many different tapas and shared which was a lot of fun ! Our waitress, Diddi? , was a pleasure and very entertaining as well as professional. She really helped us pick excellent choices for dinner.

I totally enjoyed by dining experience at Ole Tapas Lounge & Restaurant. Incredible food and the portions were just the right amount. I even was teasing the waitress saying why can't this be like Tapas of Spain. There you get all of the food and you pay for the drinks. But I guess one will have to travel back to... More
