Just visited this restaurant tucked away just a little off the main drag. This is a "Do Not Miss" restaurant. This is a very pretty, yet cozy, Portugese restaurant. The service is fast & friendly. Has room for large family gatherings. I loved that their seafood choices were many & excellent. I had Red Snapper in Champagne sauce. Great! The... More

Our family has been going to Solar from the beginning for a while we stopped going I believe there was a change in management and the quality of food, service and the staff went downhill. We decided to give it another chance. The food was much better. Service was still lacking and not very friendly. We will go back again... More

Their food and sangria is pretty good! Would definitely recommend Peito de Frango à Princesa Chicken breast sautéed with shrimp and mushrooms, in a port wine sauce, served with mashed potato! Delicious!

Well, you get plenty of food for your money. The only problem is will you enjoy it. Our night started out good the sangria both red & white were excellent. After a short time appetizers came. The octopus was tender but salty as was the garlic shrimp. About 1 1/2 hours later our dinners finally came out. After such a... More

We just came back from dinner and as usual it was delicious. We come at least twice a month. It's pricey but worth every penny. If you're a meat lover like me, this is your spot! We usually order the rodizo or churrasco misto. The red wine sangria is always delicious. Their service is top of the line. The servers... More

I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. Their seafood is fantastic, wonderful appetizers and if you are really hungry order the rodizio, you won't be disappointed. The place gets really crowded but during the warmer months there is outdoor seating. Their sangria, while a little pricy is delicious and they have a nice array of tasty desserts.... More

This place is amazing. We go every few months. It can be a little pricey but well worth it. The steak on a stone is to die for as is the sangria, seafood, and appetizers
