Delightful little place

I have been to this place several times. I must say that I love their green salsa - it is delicious! Out of all the dishes I have tried I loved the chicken tostada salad. There were pieces of fresh mango which added to the taste. The service is good and I would recommend this place if you are... read more

The owner is rude, he called me THE "B" WORD. I will never visit this place again. Leonel is his name beware of him.

The noise from the other tables was ear splitting..the walls and floor are hard...no sound absorption, Based on that alone I would not return.....you can't enjoy dinner in such an environment One of us had the spicy shrimp, which was well prepared ...but 6 TINY shrimp do not a dinner make!

This is a great find in the side streets of Menlo Park. The service is enthusiastic and friendly. Shrimp, salads and meats are of excellent quality, perfectly spiced and with delicious sauces. Best Mexican food we have ever had. And very reasonably priced

The "enchiladas de Mariscos" are fantastic as are the chile rellano's! The food at Cafe del Sol is different from your typical Mexican restaurant showcasing unique flavors and food styles from many parts of Mexico.

Delicious Mexican food in a vibrant, intimate setting. The "Casa" is a small house with Mexican colors that excite the appetite. Servers are friendly and efficient. The Food ? TERRIFIC ! They don't pretend to be "gourmet" but everything is presented beautifully and the flavors are authentic. A variety of fish dishes as well as traditional enchiladas, tacos, & other... More

A block off the beaten track, Cafe del Sol is a favorite with my neighbors and friends for good, fresh food and a laid-back atmosphere. It's a tiny place -- fewer than 20 tables -- so can get a bit loud, but in a chatter-y way. Fish tacos are ab fab, also enchiladas mariscos and the garlic shrimp. Enjoy!

Best Mexican food in town. Reasonable prices, large portions, the best green salsa - homemade of course. We love the chicken salad with grilled vegetables and quesadilla. I eat there at least once a month. Great chile rellano, seafood dishes, burritos. Friendly service. Not much on atmosphere, but clean and simple. Small place.

Three adults + two young children. I don't think this fantastic upscale restaurant is trying to be kid-friendly, but the wait staff were certainly accommodating. We arrived at 5 pm on a Wednesday, with two very young children. We were seated near empty tables - a very good thing. This was definitely the best time to go to dinner there... More
