Great little restaurant & a great little find. Booking ahead is recommended. We choose meatballs, pork croquettes, Spanish sizzling sausages, potato braves, garlic chicken, bread & dips, & a very nice bottle of wine. I'd give the food 10/10. Good service, & fast service. The decor of the restaurant is rustic looking, but it adds to the appeal. Search carefully... More

We popped in to Solera whilst out shopping on a Saturday. Having ate at other Tapas places in Brighton, I was keen to see how this stacked up. We weren't disappointed. The Tapes was lovely and the Jug of Sangria was was smooth and fruity. Possibly the best Sangria I've ever had. A meal for two and a Jug of... More

I hadn't eaten at this restaurant for well over a year but it was a spur of the moment decision. We hadn't booked but were there just after 6, so on the promise that we'd be finished by 8pm, we took one of the booked tables. I would strongly recommend you do book though to avoid disappointment. Whilst there were... More

I've only just recently discovered Solera - it was introduced to me by a Brighton friend. The food here is totally delicious and probably better than any other tapas I've eaten in Brighton. It's easily missed due to its location and unassuming appearance, but that doesn't mean it's not busy..make sure you book ahead at peak times as it's very... More

On arriving the table was not ready then give a table for two people and when it should had been for four people, and then the staff told me it was a table for four ( four kids ) clearly looking round the restaurant you could see that everybody else only had two on this size table to be honest...

Dear Russell: I'm really sorry for your experience with us. Unfortunately, all the tables we have are tables for four people. It is a small and cozy place and we like it like that. My waitress even offered you to add an extra table so you could be more comfortable, but you didn't accept it and left without even trying... More

Third visit in as many years. Always go here when in Brighton and never disappoints! The staff are always really helpful but leave you alone when you want to be! Normally go for lunch which always lasts 2-3 hours. We order the fantastic tapas two or 3 at a time and gradually graze our way through most of the dishes.... More

Been here twice now and both times the food has been great! Service is average as both times the waitresses have been pretty busy but the food is excellent and I like the small, cosy feel of the restaurant. Sangria is pretty good too :)

Unfriendly to the point I left. I didn't receive any service from the waitresses so I had no choice but to leave and eat else where! A first for me.

Came here with my close friend for some tasty tapas. The place was quite busy but they found us a small table. We ordered a selection of dishes and all were very good. I like the fact they don't bring them all out at once (this is how traditional tapas should be!). My only complaint would be that after receiving... More

We visited the Restaurant with a local friend of us on her recommendation and we were well rewarded. The Food is good, tasty, hot and creative. Maybe the kitchen is a bit too british to get a real Spanish taste. The Location is rather small and unimpressive, it is easy to miss the Restaurant when strolling through the street.
