Returned after eating here last year. Pleased to say the food and entertainment (flamenco dancing) was as good as the first visit. Definitely will eat here again when back in Brighton

Didn't eat here myself but my parents did today and asked me to write a glowing review as they had such a great time. They had a variety of traditional dishes and San Miguel to drink and thought the price was very reasonable.

I doubt any of the reviewers writing rave reviews have ever eaten tapas in Spain because every dish that I saw served at Ole Ole tonight was an incredibly poor representation of this style of food. Good tapas should be like a great pop song - fun, fresh and leaves you wanting to hear it again. This was more Richard... More

Visited here yesterday evening. As we arrived we were welcomed shown to our "table". It was a car boot sale fold out table with a paper table dressing over it, more like you would find in a kids party. We were placed in the back of the restaurant by the toilets, bar and kitchen. This wouldn't have been a problem... More

Always a pleasure visiting here. The food is great and there is always usually a flamenco show. Makes the whole experience feel very authentic.

What a great find this restaurant was. The service was superb, very knowledgable and helpful with a friendly smile especially Anna. The food was perfect with three dishes each being about right. All this was topped off with some great entertainment from a young flamenco group - brilliant. Will definitely be returning on our next trip to Brighton
