The legendary Olé has gone downhill, we hadn't visited for years and finally decided to go back for a special night's dinner. The service was good and courteous but to our disappointment everything was drenched in vinegar and tasted alike. We didn't even enjoy the king prawns as they were actually fizzy with vinegar. The meat had all the potential... More

The place is very expensive and the food is average at best. The dishes look like something you get at a gas station or a canteen and compared to that the prices are ridiculous. Too much fat and salt and not enough flavors. This place has nothing to do with Spanish food or fine dining.

I visited olé restaurant last month. Firstly, waitress offered me the kids menu. Why? Waiting time for the foods was really long even we were only customers. Restaurant is nicely styled to look Spanish. We ate 2 appetisers and 2 beef dishes and those were already 70euros. The way how the foods were laid out wasn't best I have seen.... More

Very good meat and service. The warm potato salad was really too salty, but that complain did not impress the waitress. Prices are a bit too high.

We waited eagerly dining in this restaurant which is often sited to the best in Kouvola. The restaurant is founded 1982 and the decor is maybe from the same year and so is the menu too, this is intentional according to their website ( in Finnish only). I am not quite sure if that is the best way to go... More
