Great Tapas slighty less good on service

I have a particular issue with Tapas in the UK as it is really difficult to do it properly, we treat it more as a full meal rather than a series of small dishes. The food at this family run restaurant, with Spanish chef, certainly was on a par with anything I have ever had in Spain however the... read more

We visited on a Saturday night as a group of 4. The welcome and service we received was excellent. The choice of dishes was vast and we all struggled to decide what to have as it all sounded so nice. In the end we chose 12 dishes between 4 knowing we could order more. I liked the fact that dishes... More

Sol tapas has gone from strength to strength. The food and the wine improve every time we go. Zeka is always there to welcome you warmly and the staff are very helpful

The Lebanese platter is amazing, but you must ring up in advance to order it incase demand is high. Great service and traditional Spanish tapas, great selection of fish and seafood dishes as well as meat and veggie.

Saturday lunchtime meal. The place was busy as we arrived and we were promptly show to a table. Drinks order taken and served in good time. The menu selection of tapas or a two course for £9.95 was ideal. We had the two course menu and the food was more than acceptable. Just a couple of things though. The sauce... More

We could not fault our meal. The 2 course special has a good variety of choices, the food was well cooked and presented and was delicious. The wines were excellent and the whole atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit. Not just Tapas available. There are other menus. Good value for money.

I came here with a group of friends last week. I found the service and staff to be quite miserable and dare I say dull. There was no atmosphere in the place, it was quiet and empty apart from one other table. We were given three menu's, which seemed great. However, for someone who doesn't each much meat or fish...
