Stumbled upon this Gem while traveling and have added it to our "must stops" when passing thru again! Excellent menu selection and chef creativity. Great professional service from the moment we walked in the door, knowledgeable and courteous server. Food was beyond our expectations as well as reasonably priced. Very nice meal and experience, we highly recommended!

Chicken was rubbery and shrimp tasted fairly frost bitten. The sauce had a lot of flavor but couldn't get past the texture of the chicken. Service was mediocre ..... I will take a pass on ever going here again. Wasn't horrible but wouldn't even give it an average rating.

We were 2 couples there on a Wednesday nite. Service was excellent. My husband and I split the 3 tapas special and the Paella Valencia. The mussels in a tomato sauce was one of the best I've ever had, and so many of them. We also had the Calamari, lightly breaded and not greasy, yum. The beef Empanadas were good... More

Chef Wilson is a master of sauces. His culinary expertise is amazing. His blend of Mediterranean ideas is impeccable.

This was our second try at Cafe Ole. The first time did not go so well, but since we've seen so many positive reviews, we decided to give it a second try. What a mess! First, we ordered appetizers, and after 30 minutes, an employee came by to tell us that what we had ordered was all out. We settled... More

I've come here for several occasions. I have to say the meat is delicious, the shrimp, and the Paella! One of the best Paellas I have ever eaten. There is also live music here on the weekend and a wonderful bar. I've always had a great experience here.

If you like Spanish food from Spain and you happen to be in Tampa, FL., you must pay a visit to the Café Ole, this place has one of the best Paellas in Florida and if you like desserts try the cream of Catalan, you will not be disappointed with the food in this restaurant.

Excellent bar service, delicious drinks (very good sangria), and very good food for a reasonable price. Bonus: soccer on nearly every TV.
