Place is very well situated just seafront, and there are options to sit outside by the sea or inside. Food was good, even "sombreros" are a bit complicated to use due to shape. Great value!

We really enjoyed our evening here, the food was excellent and the restaurant was lovely with a great sea view as it is right on the front. Couldn't fault this place and recommend it to anyone.

It specialises in the unusual Hat or Hanging meat, great fun for two to eat or more and service is very good and we've been there time after time. However, the evening was ruined when, on a quiet night we just couldn't get the bill and the owner didn't seem to care. I won't stop us going back but we'll... More

We wanted to celebrate our family Christmas dinner somewhere special that the whole family would enjoy. El Sombrero achieved that tough challenge for 11 people. The "oldies" got a huge amount of attention, speedy service and sensible suggestions (Granny was told she'd only need a half portion). The kids loved cooking with the Sombrero so that kept them busy.

Great setting on the sea front, lovely home made food, always a good sign when locals eat in a restaurant. Particularly good was the steak cooked on a sombrero hat! Coped well with my nut allergy. Lovely desserts! So good we ate their twice!
