We are very excited to present Olé's renovated space and updated bar menus to the neighborhood. Olé has been in Inman Sq for 15 years, bringing traditional as well as innovative Mexican cuisine to Cambridge. Our 6 seat bar served us well over the years, but we always wanted a little more. Now we have it!

Please join us in our new space name with new cocktails, wines and new bar dishes.

More about the Restaurant:

In eclectic Inman Sq. lies a distinctive restaurant - Olé, where Chef David Tapia creates authentic Mexican delicacies from Veracruz, Oaxaca, amongst others. Popular for table side-award winning Guacamole it's the perfect destination for an outstanding evening.

The cocktails + the famed guacamole: still stunning 👌! Very nice service as well. Tacos: disappointing. We had a better experience about it in the past about it (tortilla + filling). Still recommended; we will be back!

Ole continues to be among the best casual restaurants in Boston. The food is first-rate and the service is solid. Despite eating at a table in the parking lot (due to Covid measures, obviously), my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. So glad Ole survived the pandemic!

We went there for Cinco de Mayo. Food was suburban Mall Quality. It’s too bad it’s a great location they have plenty of parking. It’s too bad that they’re lazy and don’t update their decor and down serve quality food. The place needs to go. There are way better restaurants that did not make it through Covid

I love Ole. Their food is outstanding, and the atmosphere is intimate and charming. They're trying out a new app that lets you order and pay at the table, which means you miss out on some of the service, but it's still COVID, so that's completely understandable.

Not following covid protocols. Tables not far enough apart, no screens. First they seated us next large 10 person party and then when we asked to be reseated, they put us so close to another party such that backs of chairs were almost touching.
Felt unsafe, so we left.

Decent food & drinks. House salsa is also very good... Hot salsa was not great. Flan was very good especially not too many places offering it. Veggie enchiladas were tasty but little dry & chili rellenos were ok.

Expensive for the amount of food offered. Guac is 14$ with only 1 avocado. Chips were offered without salsa. Salsa & chips was told to be for extra $ but then no charges put on check.

The food and drinks were absolutely amazing and the staff was super friendly and attentive. I ordered the vegan entree and shared guacamole, both were excellent. My friend had the tacos asada and loved them. I went out of my way to come to this restaurant because of the good reviews on Yelp (and because they had vegan options) and I'm so glad I did. Truly amazing, I'll definitely come back.

So glad we came to Ole! With many restaurants only doing walk-ins, we could make a reservation here and sit down right away. Great drinks, with pitchers of margaritas. Food was very good, we will be back. Service was exceptional. So friendly and helpful.

We made a reservation that was confirmed and upon arrival, were told that they decided to close early despite walking past a few signs outside and in windows that indicated WE'RE OPEN. If you are planning to close early, lock the door, then off the signs and don't confirm reservations online. I won't go back here again, thanks anyway.

Hi there, We are so sorry to hear about the inconvenience that might have caused. I spoke with my manager. He does not recall any late reservation and returning back any customer. I checked our reservation portal and the last reservation that we had on 12/30 was on 7:45 pm. There might have been some misunderstanding. Did you make a reservation through open table? Please let us know about the reservation and I will get back to you. We will do our best that we could do for your next visit.

We visited in November 2020 and ate outside. Their back patio seating is in a parking lot so it's not on a street and is fairly quiet. They have a really nice setup and even have heaters. The service was great and they have excellent margaritas!

Im upset that my ceviche had a piece of uncooked fish. Yes I know it’s uncooked but they gave a fish smelly ceviche. I’m Mexican I know how it’s supposed to be. The fish is suppose to be soaked with lemon juice for 30min for a small portion. But I guess they don’t know that process. Makes me upset that employees aren’t doing there job correctly.
