Ole Ole - Tapas, Restaurant and Bar - Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Ole Ole Restaurant
Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Mexico
Spanish appetizers, steak and lobster, grill selections and paella on Sundays. On the Cabo San Lucas marina.
There’s a plate for every taste at Olé Olé in Cabo San Lucas, with an international twist on tapas, appetizers that take their name from the Spanish word for lid or top. At Olé Olé, you’ll find a savory selection, perfect for sharing, before plunging in to one of the many grill selections this marina side Plaza Bonita restaurant is known for.
Start with a large slice of tortilla Española, a cold potato omelet, or try the serrano ham, or the chistorra, small Spanish sausages. The mushrooms sautéed in garlic are a house favorite. For dinner, Olé Olé has ten combos, including a barbecue chicken breast and pork chop; New Zealand lamb chops and lobster tail; and shrimp, lobster and tenderloin, all grilled to perfection.
Other entrées include grilled center of tenderloin, New York and t-bones, brochettes (chicken, steak, shrimp or a combo of all three), and lobster fajitas. On Sundays from 1 p.m., there’s Paella Valenciana, Spanish saffron rice with chicken, pork, sausages, scallops, squid, shrimp, crab, and mixed vegetables. The atmosphere at Olé Olé is relaxed, the waiters friendly and the drinks well mixed from a small bar with one of the largest selections of spirits in town. Don’t miss the Kahlua flan. Entrées from $12.50 to $41 U.S. for a 15-ounce lobster tail.

In Spain, the bullfight shout olé-olé means “Hooray.” In Cabo San Lucas, it means good eating. Olé Olé restaurant is located on the malecon 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 price. Live music can be heard each evening (except Sunday) starting at 7 pm, creating a very lively atmosphere. Olé Olé’s young male crooner hails from Spain and has a great repertoire of favorite toe-tapping ballads. Be sure to catch the flamenco dancer Thursday through Saturday performing from 8 pm until 9:30 pm. Plaza Bonita Mall on the marina side. (624) 143-0633.
