I can't speak enough about this place. The food portion's are always just right. More importantly the food tastes amazing. I highly recommend the warm chicken in pitta bread. It's delicious. The staff there are very pleasant and willl try to help with any queries or issues one might have.

We were on a short break to Kilkenny and ate here on a very warm evening. The restaurant was air conditioned which was very welcome. The food was beautifully presented and very good. My husband particularly enjoyed the pork belly and I for once , managed to finish a steak , it was that good. We don't normally eat dessert... More

This was our third visit to Cafe Sol, it was a pleasure to be back. The food was fabulous, I had the belly of pork and it was brill. The service was welcoming and timed very well, also the buzz in the place was lovely with lots of happy faces and lots of chat. Another great night. Will be back.

Absolutely fantastic. We had the three course early bird and were completely taken aback by the quality and quantity of food for such a reasonable price! All local produce as well! The staff were so friendly and pleasant too. Highly recommend it!

I have been here several times for lunch and I must say the food is excellent, the staff efficient and friendly. The down side for me is that the place is noisy. I think it must be something to do with the acoustics of the room because it's certainly not that the clientele are rowdy! It is always full which... More
