The food is wonderful and fresh. They have special meals on different nights like an Italian Food night and Sushi night. Very quaint and special!

A short walk from our Olle Hotel, my cousin and I enjoyed a wonderful steak dinner & wine. Old world charm mixed with Texas history = winning combo. We'll try to return again soon to this food oasis in south-central Texas.

Some entrees are overpriced. Thursday night specialty is Italian food which is good but slightly overpriced. Interior in need of repair. Hamburgers (and getting French Fries is a bonus) are great and unique.

The food we were served was very good - I had salad caprese and my husband had chicken vegetable soup, which he said spoiled him for other chicken soups. The bread was fantastic. The ambiance is great - a 150 year old building that used...More
