This was a teatime visit with my partner and 1 year old Daughter. Staff were really welcoming, showed my daughter around kitchen and the restaurant. Really lovely people. Customer service aside the food was more than satisfactory. My partner and I ordered the muscles and chorizo for starter and the Steak and chips for main. All cooked to perfection with... More

Filling experience, except for the authenticity. Also beware of the flock wallpaper which may confuse older generation who may associate it with curry houses.

Diana and I popped in at 5:30 to take advantage of the 2 courses for £9.95 offer. I had mussels and chorizo and Diana had salmon and coriander fish cakes. Both were very good and quite large, so we were worried about the main course. I had oven baked turbot and Diana had king prawns in a curry sauce with... More

This was a last minute Saturday night meal with my hubby. Didn't book and got a table straight away. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, just how you would expect a Spanish restaurant to be. We were keen to try the tapas menu but it was very limited and slightly more expensive than we were hoping for so we looked... More

Went to Sol Tapas last night after leaving another Darlington restaurant due to the dreadful service, Zika very kindly made us welcome and found us a table even though it was after 9pm. As ever the food was exceptional, and the service excellent, 2 courses and a bottle of wine later, we left the restaurant feeling like we had been... 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.
