Lots of great dishes to try! The staff know what they are talking about and introduce each dish really well!

This was a great night. Had been to other Tapas rest. In town. But this one much better. Will definitely be back for night out.

First of all, there is confusion over the name. It is called "Sol y Sombra" on the outside wall but known locally and more simply as the Tapas Bar. Either way my wife and myself booked last minute one Sunday for lunch. Set lunch was priced at £15 pp which seemed quite expensive but given the number and quality of... More

Great set lunch for £14.95 a head, excellent atmosphere with spanish music playing softly in the background. Spanish chefs who explain each dish in both spanish and English. Caters to individuals, I.e. Likes/dislikes/vegetarian etc. Each dish was beautifully served, hot where required and very tasty. Whist each portion is not over large it is not necessary as there were so... More

Cant fault the food. Excellent, but taken aback to find out that a vodka sets you back £3.40. And £1.80 for tin of coke. Really no need for that. Felt a bit bad not leaving tip for lovely staff but rip off drink prices put paid to that. Will definitely be eating here again but won't be entertaining those prices... More

We had a table for 4 in the bar. We could not get a table in the restaurant as they were full, you need to book early. The food was brilliant. We were asked how many of us like fish. This was a good idea and they ensured that other tapas was on offer. We were not disappointed, good quality,... More

Originally planned to travel back to Fife after visit to Broughty Ferry to celebrate my son's birthday there. My daughter in law then had bright idea, due to time constraints, to stay where we were and find somewhere to dine. We stumbled across Sol Y Sombra and the 'gods were shining on us' Despite them being fully booked we were... More
