This is my second visit to the restaurant and i was again surprised by the great ambience and the quality of service and food. One of the things i really appreciate in a restaurant is having an open kitchen so i am able to check the process of cooking and the cleaness of the place where it's cooked what i am going to eat. Regarding this, Ole Ole is 100% first class. Everybody should visit it and join the spanish flavour.

We enjoyed an evening here recently for my sister's birthday. Had been here a few times before so knew it was a fail safe option. It's the way I like to eat, lots of plates of tapas dishes and big dishes on the table all to share. On this occasion I was the only guy amongst the Cougars and we took over the covered veranda.
One of my favourite tapas here is patatas Bravas perfectly crunchie on the outside, soft in the middle, spicey with paprika and mayonaise.
Mains we had large dishes of what they describe as shellfish in a broth and a variation on a paella, this one made with short macaroni...I'd never have thought how good that was going to be.
Fish was excellent and my sister also had some fried calamari which she devoured. One of the Cougars is vegetarian and a dish was made specifically for her. This is how I know things are made from scratch here.
Plenty of cold fruity sangria was poured, and the dancing commenced, not the talented flamenco dancers of the restaurant but our party doing what we now refer to as the flamingo dance!!
Hosting was genuine and friendly, suggestions made and accepted. Later a chocolate cake was presented with enough left for my sister to take some home for her son.
Will definitely be back, they seem to do lots of different evenings keeping the interest alive.

We ordered Paella which came highly recommended. We were left wondering why. Maybe we should have stuck with tapas!
