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.

I had a chicken salad at this restaurant and it was the best salad. The vegetables were the freshest I had ever tasted. It really was good.

“OK, but overpriced”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We went for dinner and ordered tortilla soup, side salad, and beef fajitas, a lemonade and one beer. The tortilla soup was tasty, but much more picante (spicy hot) than the many others we've had. We wanted to share, because my wife likes it too, but she couldn't eat it. The fajitas were OK but for the price, we expected a much larger order. Also, they don't include tax in the price, which most of the restaurants here do. So, within the context of Cabo restaurants, for what we ordered we thought the price was much too high. The location and ambience were good, on the Marina with lots of good people watching.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

My wife & I ate at Ole Ole as we were looking for a place to eat during our 18th trip back to Cabo. In spite of all the time we had spent in Cabo, we had walked past Ole Ole everytime. The food was very good, as was the service. We enjoyed a quiet dinner, while looking out over the marina. Would definitely eat there again!

“Steak and Lobster!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We came here twice because of the steak and lobster special-$25.00! It was great! I couldn't eat all my food and shared with my son. My husband is allergic to shellfish and ordered a Mexican dish which was delicious. The margaritas were delicious too. They have plates wrapped with plastic showing representative samples of their seafood and surf and turf offerings out front with the help hawking at people to come in. I don't like that and we passed by at first and then doubled back and went in and I'm glad we did! It seems common on the marina for places to try and snag customers by acting like carnys.
