Olé Restaurant’s head chef, Tito Pirazzoli, is proud of his team as they continue to work harded than ever to accommodate the restaurant’s new influx of customers.

“Our chefs work very hard to produce excellent Spanish dishes with a modern Australian twist…As the only Queensland restaurant on the top five list, we are proud to put Brisbane on the Australian international food map,” Mr Pirazzoli said.

General manager, Lachlan Caldwell attributes the achievement to his passionate team of staff who are known for their vast knowledge of Spanish food culture and excellent customer service.

“At Olé, we provide our customers with a truly unique experience, not just good food and drinks, and that’s why our customers keep coming back,” Mr Caldwell said.

The management team at Olé hope their popularity will continue to provide an increased flow of business as the Commonwealth Games draws closer.

“With the beautiful Southbank parklands across the street, Southbank is one of the busiest hospitality precincts in Brisbane so we get a lot of tourists visiting the area…We’re expecting the Commonwealth Games to bring a heavy influx of customers across the entire Southbank hospitality precinct, Mr Caldwell said.

2018’s Commonwealth Games is set to attract over 100,000 visitors to Brisbane as the region will host a number of shooting and track cycling events.
