I have been trying to look for a traditional Spanish meal for a while. Until last week, I found it. You could not imagine how spacious and beautiful inside the heavy wooden door. The food was delicious. The brunch meal is value for money. A good place for celebration.

Our dinner of 4 was on the whole an enjoyable experience. The service was attentive and the ambience lively. So far as the food was concerned, the tapas and the desserts (especially the churros) were good. The octopus with paprika and the spider crab starter were particularly delicious. However, the seafood paella was a little bit disappointing. It wasn't flavourful... More

The tapas were great, especially the garlicky prawns. with good bread for dining into the oil. the paella Valencia was a bit dry and disappointing, but the sardines, cuttle fish and suckling pig...

Excellent food and service. The place to go for authentic Spanish cuisine in Hong Kong. The tapas we had showed a genuine care and love in the preparation and the presentation.

The service was great, and we loved the food! The olives were wonderful, so much that my friend asked if they sold them as take away. We loved the white sangria. I'd go back just for that! We only had tapas and dessert, but that meant we were able to try a variety of items. We loved every dish, except... More

It is the best Spanish restaurant in town. From tapas to main course and finally desserts are all perfect. The grilled suckling pig highlighted the whold dinner. It is the second time of visit and I would definitely come back again.

Description
OPENED SINCE 1998 IN HONG KONG AS THE BRAIN-CHILD OF VETERAN RESTAURATEUR, MR. CARMELO LOPEZ. A NATIVE SPANISH HIMSELF, HE CAME TO ASIA IN THE 70'S BUT WAS STILL NOSTALGICALLY ATTACHED TO THE RICHNESS AND EXQUISITE TASTE OF THE CUISINE OF HIS MOTHERLAND. OLE WAS CREATED FROM THIS CRAVE FOR AUTHENTICITY! JUST EXPERIENCE THE GENUINE TOUCH OF SPAIN THE MOMENT YOU STEP INSIDE THE RESTAURANT: THE LEMON YELLOW PLASTERED WALLS AND GLAZED TERRACOTTA TILES OF THE MEDITERRANEAN, THE LIGHTING FIXTURE AND THE DECORATIVE POTTERIES DIRECTLY FLOWN FROM SPAIN. ALL THESE ELEMENTS COMBINED TO RECREATE A UNIQUE AND COZY ATMOSPHERE THAT GOES HAND IN HAND FOR THE ENJOYMENT ONE OF THE WORLD'S FINEST CUISINES. THE EXTENSIVE VARIETY OF DELICACIES, PERFECT WITH THE SPANISH WINES, SANGRIA OR CHILLED BEERS. LIVE GUITAR MUSIC THROUGHOUT THE EVENING GRACEFULLY EXHILARATES A RELAXING AND ENJOYABLE MOOD.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
