Description: Mexican and Spanish appetizers, steak and lobster, many grill selections. On the Cabo San Lucas marina. There’s a plate for every taste at Ole Ole in Cabo San Lucas, with an international twist on tapas and appetizers, At Ole Ole, you’ll find a savory selection perfect for sharing, before plunging in to one of the many grill selections or some of the mexican dishes this marina side Plaza Bonita restaurant is known for. Start with a large slice of tortilla Espanola, or try the serrano ham, or the chistorra, small Spanish sausages, a nice salad or tortilla soup. For dinner, Ole Ole has ten combos, including a barbecue chicken breast and pork chop; New Zealand lamb chops and lobster tail; and shrimp, lobster and tenderloin, all grilled to perfection, feel like mexican dishes? ask for Shrimp enchiladas just to die for. Other entrees include grilled center of tenderloin, New York and t-bones, brochettes (chicken, steak, shrimp or a combo of all three), and lobster fajitas. On Sundays from 1 p.m., there’s Paella Valenciana, Spanish saffron rice with chicken, pork, sausages, scallops, squid, shrimp, crab, and mixed vegetables. The atmosphere at Ole Ole is relaxed, the waiters friendly and the drinks well mixed from a small bar with one of the largest selections of spirits in town. Don’t miss the Kahlua flan. Entrees from $12.50 to $41 U.S. for a 15-ounce lobster tail. In Spain, the bullfight shout ole-ole means “Hooray.” In Cabo San Lucas, it means good eating. Ole Ole restaurant is located on the malecon of Cabo San Lucas’ marina. It is the perfect place to people-watch, morning, noon or night, as they stroll along the walkway flanked by the luxury yachts and sport fishing boats on one side and a variety of eateries on the other. Rope-lit palms and lively colors single out Ole Ole. You can’t help but drool when you check out the sampling of specials on display next to the full menu set up in front of the restaurant. This might be the evening for New Zealand lamb chops or barbequed pork chops prepared on the open-air grill. Traditionally served in almost every one of Spain’s bars and restaurants, tapas are appetizers ranging from simple items to more elaborate plates that usually accompany cocktails. However, for many, tapas can suffice for an entire meal. Ole Ole is one of the few places in Los Cabos where a menu can please almost every palat. While the delicious Kahlua flan is usually my favorite desert, the whole baked apple with ice cream and chocolate sauce just may be my new one. For 20 years, restaurateur and artist, Luis Rionda, has been making sure his patrons are well fed at a reasonable price.Plaza Bonita Mall on the marina side.

Ole Ole promises discounts, cheap drinks, and even free beer, but none of this will justify the incredibly steep prices for mediocre meals. For the price of a meal at Ole Ole, you could get two meals at Arts and Sushi (next door) or one incredible meal at Bar Esquina. The food isn't terrible, but it sure isn't worth the price.

Steer clear.

“Totally pathetic!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

I felt like I was at the fair and the carnies were begging me to play a game to win a stuffed animal..They promised us a free beer...We looked at the menu and the guy out front promised us a free beer and when we sat down the nonsense started..We had issues ordering our salads, getting our free beer. The waiter/street seller had a major attitude when I asked for my salad before my meal. His name was Martin and he was very unprofessional and I will never go back to this place..The Chicken was 25 dollars with a small salad...Total rip off! Food was nasty as well...I still feel ill...

“Heavenly Rib eye & Lobster”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2012

First of all I'm a Caboholic person I have been coming to Cabo for 14 years and I never miss coming to Olé Olé. My favorite restaurant at the marina and not because the tortilla soup is out of this world or cause Dany the singer is an Amazing singer or cause the surf and turf is cook to perfection with the 8oz mesquite grilled lobster no. Is Simple this Chinto the waiter made always our nights in Cabo with the magnificent service and big free round of margaritas thanx guys thanx Ricky the P.R. And than you so much Luis the owner that make us feel like home every year.

“Terrible and Over Priced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

We went here cause it looks cool with fire coming out of the roof and such. But the service was terrible, the food was worse and over priced. 14 dollar cheese quesadilla that was on an old tortilla. I had the pork chops for 26 dollars and they were cold and tough. Ill just quit here. I would not go ever again.
