Group of eight , ate outside at the back of the restaurant. Wait staff extremely efficient and friendly . Food was excellent especially the slow cooked lamb shoulder , generous serving enabled all eight a decent size taste . Paella good with the crunchy bottom that is expected with a good Paella . Meatballs moist and the sauce was thick... More

We've been to Ole 4 times. Reason unknown, as each time we go I get reminded of how bad the service is. The staff desperately let the chefs down. Each staff member and manager unenthusiastic, slow, inattentive. Always understaffed and the staff that are there need training / change of careers. Don't bother. Choose from many other restaurants that do... More

Yummy tapas and great sangria. We were unsure what type of restaurant we were looking for in this area as so many places to eat. We decided on Ole as it was somewhere where there was a good choice of dishes to share eg Tapas plus we could order a jug of sangria. Nice friendly service, only small criticism was... More

My partner and I met another couple here for an early dinner on a Sunday. The staff were friendly and attentive. After been in Australia for a week, this was the first place I saw that offered a craft IPA beer (Yanda IPA), this made me very happy (coming from Wellington NZ, I discovered Australia has a long way to...

All round an average experience. Not busy yet always had to look for staff to ask for a drink or to order. Servings very small

After reading other reviews, we decided to try Ole for an early dinner prior to a show at Southbank and were not disappointed. From a warm welcome at the door, to prompt and helpful service, to lovely food, it was a terrific start to our evening. We had arrived in time to try a refreshed menu, and decided to select... More

We bumped into friends who were eating here and asked to join their table. The waitstaff were accommodating to us, without any hassle. The wine and cocktails were delicious, but the star of the show is the Seafood paella... I would come back to Brisbane just for that!

As always the food is great, the atmosphere is bustling and the bar well stocked. The wait staff are always seen struggling trying to fit more people in, like playing Tetris, but alas that usually means a long wait for a table. You can book for large groups but I have always found that a party of 6 isn't big... More

Fantastic location and brilliant ambiance, the staff were great! Really genuine and on the ball. The sangria was delicious! And the wine was high class and great value, would come back for a drink but never again for food. I have purchased better stuffed olives from the supermarket deli and the jamon was closer to old, dried out ham... The... More

Great service , on a very busy Sat. night, and delicious food are all you need to give a restaurant a rating of 5. We tried their iberico ham , huevos rotos, pimentos de padrons and 2 more tapas and couldn't find a single flaw in any of them ... great quality indeed . We left fully satisfied with our... More
