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.

“Food was ok, better places in the marina area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

My wife and I went to Ole Ole for their daily special. Fillet mignon, shrimp and lobster. Maybe we went on a bad day. The filet mignon, and the lobster was ok. Unfortunately the shrimp was dry and tasteless. My biggest issue was the décor and service. It seemed that you were rushed to order and it seems that they precook the steaks to expedite. The accompaniment of baked potato and vegetables were less than par. Overall, the place needs a bit of an update. Bottom line, it was not our favorite place.

“Excellent Surf and Turf dinner for two”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Start dinner with a buzz - the "Margarita" (Real Tequila on the rocks)! Bread with garlic butter. Then taste that grilled fresh meaty lobster tail with butter, plus the grilled 1" thick beef tenderloin cooked to taste, a baked potato, and veggies ... so delicious!! For dessert, indulge on a big slice of chocolate cake (delicious, not sweet) and coffee. Dinner for TWO ... total $63 USD tax included.... A rare treat for the price. Must try ... Ole Ole!!

“Ask for their specials!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

It wasn't on their menu, but I was offered "yellowtail", a jurel fish similar but sweeter than mahi mahi for $15. How can one pass that up?
Most other diners were opting for their combo dinners: shrimp, fish, lobster and steak.

“Old favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

This is right on the marina and is a fun place to eat. Huge portions of predictably good food. My husband had the flank steak which was good--not great and I had chicken burritos, which were as good as any I had on vacation. We'll be back next year.
