A perfect paella is a thing of beauty and the paella that we serve at Ole Tapas Bar is no exception!
This traditional Spanish dish is a firm favourite with our customers. A sociable meal for parties to enjoy along with a glass or two of sangria.
Ours are made to order with traditional Bomba rice to soak up our delicious homemade stocks and flavoured with saffron for authenticity. Choose your favourite Veg/vegan, chicken, seafood, Mixta (all in one) or our favourite Black seafood with squid ink, a paella can be enjoyed at anytime of the year and in any weather.
Please note: On Friday and Saturday nights we only serve paella until 6pm and these must be ordered in advance, this is due we have really small kitchen and really busy times.
You can order a paella any day and time of the week, excluding Fridays & Saturdays Night!!
