I was so sad to read the 2 starred review as I have been eating at the Sol Tapas since it opened and really cannot fault it. The service is excellent which is so rare nowadays. Zika and Ibby are the consummate hosts and nothing is too much trouble ! We have always been made to feel welcome and looked... More

One of the best meals out I've had in Darlington. Came for a meal whilst here from London. Must recommend the chorizo in cider, and the chicken paella, which I had. My husband had garlic mushrooms and the seafood paella. We both agreed it was better than any paella we have ever had, even in Spain! The staff were very... More

Having not been to this restaurant for a while it was great to see the food and service was as good as ever. Visited with a group of friend and we decided on tapas. Delicious freshly cooked food that just seemed to keep coming! Can't fault anything (the slow braised beef and the gambas (prawn) pil pil were especially good).... More

I’ve been here a few times and although the food was still great, it really is about time they changed the early evening special menu. Its been the same for a couple of years. Between 4 of us we had black pudding, pate, chorizo and goats cheese for starters – all OK. Then for mains we had two Lebanese chicken... More

Having grown up in Spain & Portugal and lived on tapas I was excited about this place from the reviews. Atmosphere was great and waitress was so lovely to my wife and I. The first shock was that there was NO Spanish beer AT ALL!! A Spaniard wouldn't be seen dead serving no Spanish beer in a Spanish restaurant! Italian... More

My fiancé and I came to this restaurant for my birthday. We did quite a bit of research beforehand and decided on this one due to the reviews. We had no idea it existed as we never venture into that part of town. We arrived to a very quaint little restaurant - the lighting was good. Light enough to see... More
