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

Parking is weird. There's valet, but the valet attendants are suspect and not at all inviting. The restaurant is not big or maybe it is and just feels cramped. Once seated, I was fine. I don't like to feel like I'm on top of people and where we were situated was perfect. Our server was all over the place. He... More

Squeezed onto a small side street, you wouldn't expect much from the restaurant. However, the food and sangria were great, service was good and the outdoor dining area was enjoyable on a late summer evening.

I have been going to solar do Minho for 9 years and never had a problem. This time around was a HUGE HUGE HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! There are three sections to solar's dining area. A main dining area, which is always a delight with great servers and service and you can see where they roast the meats for their rodizio A... More

Came here for New Year's eve and expected chaos. But, they sat us within 10 minutes and altho the restaurant was completely full, the staff was attentive, efficient and made sure we were happy with everything, throughout the entire meal. The rodizio was $32.99, and meats were all delicious, tho the sausage was a bit salty. Rodizio also included varieties... More

I love this little place. On a weird little side street and attached to a private house, it has two lively bars and three separate and atmospheric dining areas. In the good weather they also have a tent set up outdoors. The rodizio is terriic and I am someone who hardly ever eats meat - but I eat it and... More
