“On the keeper list” in Fort Greene, this BAM-area “favorite” features “delightful” Med plates (including notably “wonderful tapas” ) set down in “cozy” , “colorful” digs by an “accommodating” crew; since “everyone in the neighborhood” knows about it, be ready for “bustling” crowds and “long waits” , especially for brunch.

Solidly good food. A nice range of options, mostly Spain inspired. The menu is tapas style and reads from less expensive to more expensive which is a nice way to organize it IMO. The drinks were a bit of a let down but otherwise I was quite happy. Beautiful almost Bohemian vibe with lots of plants and gorgeous open wood beam ceiling. Wait staff was friendly

I’m probably the only person that doesn’t like brunch (IMO brunch menus usually are lacking - I prefer breakfast or dinner) HOWEVER Olea’s brunch is a must! The drinks are amazing. I had the spiked hot cider. So good! But not to be mistaken, the Olea breakfast steals the show! I’ve never had anything like it. The flavor is very unique. In addition to the food, the restaurant itself has a very cozy feel. This place is a must try for brunch.

Had the white mango sangria, excellent! And tapas, all of them Delicious including the split pea soup, meatballs, artichoke hearts, pita and hummus - everything was amazing. The quality and flavor is at the top of my restaurants in Brooklyn. Will definitely go back.
