I visited this restaurant with my parents for the first time 33 years ago. Until today they deliver always: great service, good food, nice spot at the beach and fair value. My kids love it. Good casual place with quality food, ideal also for large groups. Menu never changes.

Great restaurant at the beach with wonderful fish dishes. Good staff and owner that truly cares about hospitality and serving his clients well. I will go here again. And again.

This restaurant actually came recommended to us...Unfortunately. initially the waiter guided us to the side of the restaurant as all beach front outside tables were full. We took his word. I am gluten free and so far had no problems but from the start of our dining experience I knew I would leave hungry. The waiter had good English apart... More

We loved eating on the beach - children could play in the sand while we waited (and they were also provided with colouring-in things). The service was quite fast, very friendly, and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I've been going to Sol i Mar for 30 years. My parents took us there as kids and yesterday I took my kids. If you're at the beach it's advisable to call in on your way past and book a table for lunch or dinner as in the high season it's usually booked out. We were greeted, seated and a... More

The restaurant is located on the beach, offering good views and a pleasant atmosphere.

The staff are pleasant and helpful and prices are reasonable. There is a varied... More

We are just back from Costa Brava and this was a little gem on the trip. Two families walked in off the beach and we were eelcomed happily. We went inside but the views were still lovely. This is a North facing beach so do not expect a spectacular sunset view. However the view is beautiful. The decor is nice... More

Loved the view, great relaxed atmosphere, many customers brought their dogs with them which was a great talking point. Food varied and good. Sangria perfect.
