Central Hong Kong seems to have it all and is lucky enough to have a superb Spanish restaurant among its many great eateries. Olé Spanish Restaurant on Ice House Street is the premier spot in Hong Kong for excellent wines, hearty Spanish classics and flavourful desserts. Featuring an unbeatable brunch special on Saturdays, locals are gobbling up the specialties at this popular eatery and spreading the word that Olé Spanish Restaurant is the place to go for an amazing culinary experience!
We’re not making any bones about it – Olé Spanish Restaurant is setting the bar dangerously high
for great food in Hong Kong. With its beautiful interior, guests feel as if they’ve been transported
across the world to Barcelona where life is easy, people are friendly and the sun shines
brightly. Diners are sometimes shocked upon leaving that they are, in fact, on central Hong Kong’s
Ice House Street, right in the thick of the hustle and bustle of urban life.
Fine wine and tapas make for the perfect dinner with a group of friends, and Olé Spanish Restaurant really delivers in that department, especially when it comes to great service, amazing cuisine, and lovely atmosphere. Grilled cuttlefish with aioli sauce make for a perfect starter, and diners love sharing the deep-fried Spanish patron peppers. Planning a big event? There could hardly be a better venue for celebrating than at Olé Spanish Restaurant in central Hong Kong. Seating up to 65 guests with audio equipment and projector included, it’s the ideal location for a private event.
The service was great. The portion of tapas fits for 4 of us. The Paella was great and especially the lobster. It was definitely a great experience for a Spanish night.
Lunch sets are of great value, HK$208 for a 3 course meal plus coffee or tea.
Nice place, great staff, amazing food, real Spanish taste (I’m from Spain). 100% I’ll back. Staff has recommended to try the Saturday Bruch, which I’ll do. And the first thing that you find when you enter is the Spanish Flag!!! Congratulation Olé Restaurant
Great food, attentive staff, very good atmosphere. I would highly recommend. Good menu choices, all of which delicious and bring a true authentic Spanish taste to them. The wine list is very handsome too with a wide variety to choose from. Completely unhurried service. Top marks from me.
Excellent experience. I went there to celebrate my birthday with my parents and the staff were very courteous. They took their time to explain how the food was made even though there were many guests and schedule was tight. Food was on the whole outstanding. The tapas of octopus and slow cooked pork cheek worth most worthy of note. Gazpacho of an amazing standard and well complimented by condiments. Main course was the highlight of the night as the suckling pig was cooked to a level where the skin of the pig both crunched and melted in the mouth. Paella of similar standard with obviously well-sourced fresh seafood. Dessert slightly underwhelming but in the context of the whole meal it was excellent. Noise levels were relatively loud but it was not to the detriment of the restaurant as it contributed greatly to the lively atmosphere.
Atmosphere is always lovely and it was a vibrant evening full of chatty groups despite it being a Tuesday. Table was ok but felt a little like I was stuck in the aisle rather than intimately dining with my husband. Food from tapas was delicious. Mushroom croquets were superb. Chorizo nice and spicy and prawns probably the best I’ve had in a long time, melt in the mouth. Main was a let down. We ordered salted bass to be told it was sold out so opted for dish of the day sole. Way below standard. Over cooked mush with plenty of bones and absolutely nothing on the side. When we asked for vegetables or salad we were met with dumbfounded looks. Cobbled together some broccoli for us. Dessert was not bad, brioche pudding was ok and a chocolate pudding that went down well. Wines were nicely paired at the end. Overall a not bad experience but the main was a sad disaster. Shame.
Very nice atmosphere and traditional decor. Friendly and efficient service led by the owner with much 'bon ami' and a personal touch. My wife and I kept to the tapas menu and we were very impressed with its quality. We have lived in Spain, like Spanish food and have eaten at many Spanish restaurants in Hong Kong. Ole is without doubt one of the finest. The prices, including the wine menu, is reasonable and good value for the quality offered. We paid HK$900 for two persons inclusive of a great meal and wine. We will definitely go again. It was busy so book ahead.
We chose this restaurant as it has had many good write ups and we tried to get in a few weeks ago but it was fully booked. The head waiter was very helpful from the start of our meal with recommendations. We had the white sangria which was refreshing and light. We also had a mixture of tapas and mains all authentically Spanish. We were not rushed from our table and we spent nearly 4 hours there. A memorable time had by us all. Thank you.
Wonderful service with very delicious food and relaxing environment ! Made us feel like we are really in Spain for holidays! There was a live band during the dinner period and they were nice to the customers and tried to sing the songs we all like ! We were there to celebrate birthday and the restaurant prepared a surprise birthday cake and followed by a live singing birthday song ! Very warm and def come back for more Spanish food ! Well done
Very pleased with the food and service! The tapas offered a great variety, and the lobster paella was delicious and well-textured (with addition of squid and crispiness of the rice). Service was fantastic. It was my mom's birthday so the chef decorated our dessert saying "Happy Birthday" and served it accompanied by a guitar duo who performed the birthday song and dedicated a song of our choice to my mom!
