I am honest enough to say, I thought this place was going to be Mexican food. I've seen folks 'check in' and say how good it was, so we wanted to try something New, we decided to check it out. Immaculate establishment! Always a huge PLUS on my check list! Server was good, but when I mentioned we had never... More

We went for our Son-in-Laws Birthday. The atmosphere is great, a nice casual place with an air of high class. There were 14 of us so a lot of work for the wait staff but they kept everything moving. If you are going to order Paella, it takes a little while so don't be impatient. Enjoy a couple of appetizers... More

We went for a Saturday afternoon lunch so i am guessing the atmosphere is much more energetic when its crowded. I can only imagine getting a group together and ordering the whole roasted pig!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had 4 dishes and a couple of appetizers and everything was excellent. I can say that because we ordered 4 different things and we shared... More

I visited this restaurant on a night that they had flamenco dancing. So fun..the food was really good. Had the clams, shrimp and asparagus. No complaints whatsoever. The chef brought out a few extra dishes, all of which were wonderful. Great service. Delicious sangria. I will visit again.

I went here because a friend of mine was dancing that night. They have Flamenco dancing on the first Saturday. I was pleasantly surprised with the food. It was delicious. I did mention to my hubby that the appetizers were a little small for the price, but they tasted wonderful. We ordered the paella as our main course. The menu... More

This went from being one of my favorites to the "do not return for awhile" list. There were 2 ladies at the bar when we walked in. They were having a communications issue trying to order and we ran into the same issue. There were multiple menus and I asked if an item was a tapas or a plate (it... More

My family and I visited Ole Tapas for the first time after receiving a gift card from a friend who loves the restaurant. We were not sure what to expect since none of us had ever tried tapas. The restaurant also doesn't look like much since the storefront is in a strip mall. However, we had one of the best... More

I live nearby so have been several times over the past few years. I forget at times that it is a great little place that does not feel small town but provides local attention with a bigger city feel. Great small plates. Broad appeal wines. Friendly.

Our friends in Hockessin wanted to share this wonderful Tapas restaurant with us, since we all love tapas. They are going to Spain in a month, so they wanted to try out some Spanish food.
