Quite good Spanish restaurant in Hong Kong, especially the paella is tasty, can be a bit crowded from time to time, nice selection of olives. Have Spanish beer. Bread almost as good as in Spain or Italy.

I remember this meal vividly. Take a nice walk down the Hollywood Street / Lang Kwai Fong Area to work up an appetite and head here. The squid ink rice and suckling pig were to DIE for. It isn't cheap, but this is as authentic a Spanish food experience as you're going to get in Asia.

Ive lived in HK for six and a half years now and I always used to pass this place thinking the place was probably not worth it just because it was away from the hooplah! Never ventured in! And I blame only myself for it!

I recently booked this place only at a friend's recommendation and it turned out to be the best Spanish meal I have had in HK so far. Very authentic with fantastic ambiance and the owner is a gem of a person personally coming over and recommending dishes and chatting.

His main GM of the restaurant (Billy I think) is another hard working individual constantly shuttling delightful little tapas to the table. The wine is good but the Sangria is even better. The place is not cheap but it is worth every penny. We kept the Sangria flowing and by the end of the evening half the bill was the Sangria so watch out for that angle... LOL.

But hats off to Ole for maintaining the standard apparently and not becoming blase about their apparent reputation. I asked the owner why he didnt market it more and he said (rightly so) that the best marketing is word of mouth. And that even with that the place is always fully booked so call in advance if you are a slightly larger group... which we generally are.

The black ink squid is awesome. So is the cod stuffed pepers. The pork I hear is good but I dont eat pork so cant judge that. But the chicken Paela is heavy, as it should be, so dont over order ;)

This place reminds me of a similar gem in HK, i.e. the Italian join Pana Vino.... but thats another separate review ;)

Buen apetito!

The ambient of the restaurant has room for improvement, but the food was excellent. We’ve had several dishes and all of them no question, were very good. They also have a very good wine selection. Could not figure out why they need the or better said for what they need the musicians in the restaurant … .. .

Stopped in early on a Saturday because of the good reviews, and I was not disappointed. Had the Chorizo and the garlic shrimp tapas - both were excellent - the shrimp was perhaps the best I've ever had. Also had the Spanish Salad - it too was excellent. Nice little place, a little out of the way, but very nice atmosphere. Wish I were in Hong Kong more often.....
