    Authentic Spain cuisine with great tapas, a feeling of visiting a Barcelona tabern without leaving town, it was a great service and very nice restaurant.

    We love this place. They change the menu every so often so there is a few new items on the menu to choose from. We visit this pace every couple of weeks and will keep coming back.

    Not a good experience, food was very inconsistent. Carabinaros not good. Small shrimp good. Steak was over cooked. Cod not good. Anchovies were good. Will not go back
    Taberna OleResponded on March 25, 2024
    Carabineros (Scarlet Shrimp) are never bad, either you love it or not, you need to eat the head. Do not order if you are not willing to try new things or if you don't know what it is. I am surprised because we never overcooked anything, anchovies are premium from Cantabria yes, Cod is great IMO, authentic recipe from Barcelona, Cod imported from Spain, continue your ranting now in Yelp, TripAdvisor, etc, since you already did it on Google. I do not expect you are coming back after a review like this that do not help, that is a redundancy. Thanks

    A gem tucked away in an unassuming place. Attentive service a culinary adventure reminiscent of dining in Barcelona. We had tapas but everything we ordered was delectable.

    The restaurant was hard to find. It is hidden in a small and dark strip mall. There was no sign for it. Once we found it, the food was delicious and service was great. It is an amazing value and worth visiting.

    This place has become a regular for us. This was probably the 5th or 6th time we have been there. If you want to try real Spanish food this place is a must. The chef changes a few items on the menu occasionally which keeps it interesting. The service is fantastic. They allow us to have a 2 hour meal because that is what we want. Reminds us of our visits to Barcelona. The food is great.

    So glad I stumbled across this perusing online. Loved something slightly unique for the Fort Myers area! There were just the two of us for a Saturday night out so I reserved two bar seats which were perfect. We enjoyed the tapas method of food ordering so did the chorizo and croquettes along with pork cheeks … all delish. Had a Spanish wine ( bottle to share) along with sampling a Spanish draft beer. Dessert of some ‘spin’ on a crème brûlée! Timing was fun for us as we head to Madrid in mid April and the vibe and music out is in the spirit of that trip anticipation! We will revisit and have already recommended it to others!

    Taberna Ole is a new place and I’m glad it’s here. It is nice to have a taste of Spain among the many restaurants in Fort Myers . The signage still reflects the former establishment, but, I’m sure that will get resolved soon. The ambiance is lively and lovely. The host/server greeted us at the door and he was very welcoming. He was also a very attentive and good server. For wine, I had the Garnacha Tinta which was very good. My friend and I shared the Patatas Bravas (tapas) as well as the Paella. The tapas were delicious. I will definitely order them again. The paella was a bit crispy/burned for our tastes. It also did not include a lot of seafood. The prawns, while large, were undercooked. We asked our server to have them cooked through more. He graciously handled our request. Unfortunately, the prawns came out undercooked on the second attempt. So, unfortunately the Paella is not something we would order again. Our server, however, was amazing. He understood the problem and resolved the issue for us. We had Churros y Chocolate as a complimentary dessert and that was very good. I will definitely return for the tapas, wine and dessert and order another entree.
    Taberna OleResponded on February 12, 2024
    As a company we really appreciate reviews like this, our Paella is as authentic as can be and its different that most restaurant serve here in SWFL, have socarrat and the rice is the center of the dish, based on an excellent sofrito , saffron and a great Fume (sauce), chef like to show the quality of the product and I am sure for him the Langoustine was not undercooked. But... I totally understand your point and will have a talk about this in the kitchen, I sent you a private message and I will make it good for you the next time because we are very proud of our paella and I want you to try it again. Thanks for the review, we love feedback like this one. Hope to see you soon

    I loved the experience. This is the only true Spanish place in Fort Myers that I found. The tapas were all delicious, authentic, good portions for a couple to share several, and not outrageously priced. I'd love to come with a group and try more! I would come here again and again.

    Everything very good - a group of us tried several different tapas: Lamb lollipops, ham croquettes, octopus, cheese plate, tomato bread, patatas, shrimp, churros with with choc dipping sauce & cheesecake You can bring your own wine with a $25 corkage fee. I don't like lamb but I ate two of the lamb lollipops. It was cooked perfect and no game taste. I'd get these again. The shrimp was also wonderful and the garlic sauce was great to dip bread into. There's live Spanish music which isn't so loud that you can still talk. Each dish comes in its own baking pan. We really appreciated this because one of our party has a serious food allergy. This prevented cross contamination. This restaurant is off of 41/Crystal behind Jersey Mikes. It's not in the McGregor area as Open Table states. Also they have not changed the name of the restaurant from the previous occupant; making this a little hard to find. However, the address is correct. Only comment is the Churros come 3 to an order. Would be better if this was 4 to an order so each person gets 2. Cheesecake wasn't my fav - it's not your traditional US cheesecake - nor should it be since this is a Spanish restaurant - it's more of a custard texture and not as sweet. But... dipped in the generous choc sauce that came with the churros made it heavenly and the sorbet that came with the cheesecake was fabulous also and could stand as its own dessert. We will come here again. It's off to a great start.

    Our server was WONDERFUL. Not much to say beyond that. We LOVED this restaurant last year however no one in our party (of 4) were fond of the new menu. Very sad as we had told several friends how much we loved this place last season and now we had to tell all of them not to go. Sad as this was a real gem when it was La Trattoria Cafe Napoli.
    Taberna OleResponded on February 12, 2024
    What kind of review is this? Everybody is entitled to their opinion and it is totally fine that you do not like the new menu, it is not for you, it is not italian, ok, do not come back, but a bad review for this? What do you gain with this? btw you can go to Jordan's Wine and Bar, our sister concept where Alfredo is doing his magic there. I know that you (as a lot of customers) feel loyal to Cafe Napoli, and since they are the same servers of course was Wonderful, and yes we try to do wonderful in all areas.

    Worst Spanish tapas that I have ever had, only five slices for 35 dollars, The patatas bravas were basically French fries. Disappointed. No bread served, no sugar for coffee, no salt. That day was my granddaughter's birthday, I told them when I made the reservation and also when we arrived at the place, but they didn't do anything about it, first time I've gone to a restaurant and they didn't even sing happy birthday to her.

    We hate anonymous reviews because we cannot fix the problem. I replied to you privately, we will refund the tablas since we discussed the topic with the kitchen, and we found that we made a mistake. Server think they know who you are but I need confirmation. We made patatas bravas with fresh potatoes, not frozen, and our brava sauce is outstanding, and yes they are in some sort upscale french fries. Hope to see you again

    A nice place but the food was very disappointing. Chorizo sausages was overly salty mini hot dogs. Tapas is normally small portions but they combined 3 servings into one for 6 people. Shrimp lacked flavor, wings were tasty. Our server was great atmosphere too was very good.
    Taberna OleResponded on January 31, 2024
    Thanks for the review, you said ". Chorizo sausages was overly salty mini hot dogs", you had Chistorra a fast-cure sausage from Aragon, the Basque Country and Navarre, Spain. They are like that, just google, we make it on the charcoal grill. We do not have small portions, but I will look into your receipt and see, send me your info here privately . Again, thanks and hope to see you again

    New concept on the old Tratoria, Spanish menu, so glad finally we have an Spanish concept in Fort Myers, croquetas are to die for, octopus also, do yourself a favor and try the ibérico pork. You notice that there is a Catalan chef in the kitchen. Excellent service, old staff from Tratoria still there, we will be back

    Authentic Spanish food. The croquets, octopus, and cochinillo were amazing. Tarta de queso (cheesecake), took me back to San Sebastian, Spain, it was delicious. There is also a beautiful wine selection.
