However, we chose 3 items each and when the food arrived it was truly amazing. 6 different tapas was just right, I tried another & struggled with it, Our choice was as follows,... More

My husband and I have ate at SOL on a few occasions and have never been disappointed. The place is small and relaxing and the tapas is just truly amazing. You get a good selection of dishes and the service is excellent. They also do good lunch time specials, we had a 3 course meal one afternoon which was delicious.... More

Able to cater for large parties upstairs in restaurant 40+ people. Had a relaxed buffet style arrangement, staff kept bringing food out thought it was never going to stop! High quality tapas with so much choice. Also been for traditional Sunday lunch which also was excellent. Staff very helpful and polite. Don't hesitate to book you won't be disappointed.

Went for a birthday Sunday lunch with friends. Staff are very welcoming, the food was good too. One of my personal likes is that I do like my vegetables to arrive separately so I can chose what I want to have on my plate. We all had a great lunch, and the price was also good :-)

Been meaning to eat here for sometime and we weren't disappointed, the service was quick and the food was a real taste of Spain. Will definitely be returning.

This is the second time we have been to Sol Tapas, the first time wasn't overly impressive but we thought we'd give it another chance. We were seated upstairs on a table which resembled Christmas time for a large family with odd sized tables and emergency chairs. The room was cold and the lighting was too dark. Any way that's...
