Ole Ole Restaurant Bar & Grill
Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Mexico
In Spain, the bullfight shout olé-olé means “Hooray.” In Cabo San Lucas, it means good eating. Olé Olé restaurant is located on the malecón of Cabo San Lucas’ marina. It is the perfect place to people-watch, morning, noon or night, as they stroll along the walkway flanked by the luxury yachts and sport fishing boats on one side and a variety of eateries on the other. Rope-lit palms and lively colors single out Olé Olé. You can’t help but drool when you check out the sampling of specials on display next to the full menu set up in front of the restaurant.
This might be the evening for New Zealand lamb chops or barbequed pork chops prepared on the open-air grill. Traditionally served in almost every one of Spain’s bars and restaurants, tapas are appetizers ranging from simple items to more elaborate plates that usually accompany cocktails.
However, for many, tapas can suffice for an entire meal. Olé Olé is one of the few places in Los Cabos where you can find such a variety of tapas, as well as that refreshing gazpacho soup that has its roots in the Andalusian region in southern Spain. Gazpacho, a mildly spicy tomato-based cold soup that is chock full of all sorts of fresh raw crunchy vegetables, is a fabulous choice on one of Cabo’s lovely evenings outdoors. It too can be a meal in itself.
Paella Valenciana, an amazing Spanish dish of saffron-flavored rice combined with a variety of meats and shellfish, is so special that it is served only on Sundays, emulating the tradition in Spain. While the delicious Kahlúa flan is usually my favorite desert, the whole baked apple with ice cream and chocolate sauce just may be my new one. For 13 years, restaurateur and artist, Luis Rionda, has been making sure his patrons are well fed at a reasonable
