Amazing food and nice people

- 5 / 5 stars -3 weeks ago

Its a small place in the center of Tarifa. The food looks and tastes amazing. It is creativ and made woth love. We went there but it was so busy, that we didn't get any table. The next day we came back and were lucky. The waiter still remember us and apologized because of the day before.Thanks a lot for the amazing food! We would ever come back!


Excellent food

- 5 / 5 stars -4 weeks ago

We discovered this gem of a taparia in the back streets of the old town of Tarifa. The restaurant itself is beautiful; the seating area is small and personal. The food is nothing but amazing , dish after dish satisfied our hungry family. Each dish and its ingredients were perfectly balanced with each flavour contrasts each other perfectly; the sweet honey with the crispy aubergine, the crispy tuna and the refreshing salsa , the list goes on. This restaurant was the highlight of our eating experience this holiday and was easily affordable as well. Couldn’t recommend it more.


A little gem

- 5 / 5 stars -2 months ago

In ways of tapas, this place was a little gem. Me and my son, 15, ate some lovely dishes which were both recognizable and innovative. Prawns in a homemade hot version of pesto was very tasty. Everything was done nicely at an affordable-for-all budget.


Great finish of the wonderful day in Tarifa!

We visited Ola Ola after checking tripadvisor descriptions of few restaurants/bars and were absolutely happy enjoying our dishes there! We took shrimps and a couple of tuna sandwiches. Interesting food presentation, very kind service and, of course, delicious meal. Thank you, guys, for this! Highly recommend! ))

Delicious food, not too expensive

We have been traveling from Italy to Portugal and now to Spain. We ate the prawns, tuna toast and hamburger and they were all delicious. The owner was friendly and had great suggestions for what to eat. Stop here for a light dinner in Tarifa!

Highlight recommend this place! The tapas are amazing and the owner is very friendly. Crunchy tuna was one of the best dished I ever had. Also the gambas, pumpkin croquettes, tortitas de camarones and chicken sandwich were great. We tried many different restaurants but came back to Bar Ola Ola three times because we loved it !

Very small good vibe Tapas bar with great tapas, wonderful service and good music. Their signature dish, the crunchy tuna is fabulous but we also really enjoyed the aubergine and and scrambled ola ola. Great bottle of De Raiz red wine. Wish we had more time to head back and try some of the other dishes.

Best tapas' restaurant in Tarifa !

- 5 / 5 stars -1 year ago

If you wanna have a table, be early and you won't be desapointed. The food was amazing, special mention to the crunchy tuna and the croquettes, well dressed and very cheap . More than that, the atmosphere in this place is great, the owners were always very friendly and welcoming. Finally, they've got some nice little wines on the menu.Just perfect !

gem of Tarifa

Every time I go to Tarifa I must visit Ola Ola. It`s the combination of delicious food, fast and friendly service and good vibes that keeps me wanting to go back. I`m vegetarian but there are always 4-5 kinds of tapas I can try and they come up with new flavours from time to time. Carmen and her husband always cook with their hearts and Rafa not only serves the food but also makes sure that you feel very welcome. I take all my friends to Ola Ola and they absolutely love the place too. Hasta muy pronto!

I’d go back every night

We had an awesome meal at Ola Ola. The waiter was so helpful and got us a small table. The restaurant is tiny but has a great vibe and if you have to stand it’s not an issue. The food comes out quickly and service is impeccable. I’d happily eat here every night in Tarifa.


Cozy. Colourful. Quaint

We enjoyed amazing food, with wonderful service and delicious wine. You will not regret it. Crunchy tuna is a must, pumpkin croquettes were one of a kind. We will be back for more.

Fantastic little tapas bar

- 5 / 5 stars -1 year ago

This cosy little tapas bar became our favourite place to eat in Tarifa. The food was superb, and the menu catered for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.The atmosphere was very welcoming and had a great vibe. I would suggest getting here a little early as it is clearly popular with locals and tourists, and there is very limited space. However, the waiting times aren't too long either really!Also, the prices are excellent for the quality of food that you get. Can't recommend it enough!
