We arrived on time for our reservation and despite it being a cold Sunday night in February, Ole Ole was busy. As we got there, there was a woman complaining that she hadn't booked to sit in the cold. You do walk straight into the small downstairs dining area so on cold nights it may be a bit chilly with...

What a delightful find. We visited the Ole Ole in February 2017. We were very lucky to get a table so i would advised anyone to book . The food was outstanding and large portions for a Tapas.

Fantastic!! Food is authentic, beautifully cooked and fresh. Plenty of choice to choose from and the portions are good size. We had 7 dishes between 3 of us and it was more than enough for us. The staff are friendly, polite and professional. The restaurant is small which adds to the atmosphere. Will definitely be eating here again.

On Thursday 16th February my family including myself, husband and two teenage daughters visited the ole ole tapas bar in the bailgate lincoln for lunch. It's become a family favourite of ours. I would advise always booking even at lunch times because it's only a small restaurant which is very popular. In the summer months they also have a lovely... More

This was our first visit but will not be our last. We live nearly 30 miles away but as my partner works away in Lincoln I joined him for a special meal. He had been recommended Olé Olé by colleagues and they were right about this little gem. From historic Lincoln you are transported to the Mediterranean so you get... More
