“Decent Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Visited Cafe Sol on a Saturday night with another couple. Food was of a good standard and everyone at the table loved their meal. The cocktails were excellent too, however the beer selection is disappointing with not enough "dark" lagers on the menu.

Service was pretty good and overall the restaurant has a nice atmosphere.

Will definitely visit again.

“Great food and margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Cafe Sol has great food, we had the fajitas at £12 and the burrito £8 and a few frozen and straight up margaritas at £6.50. This is all pretty pricey but it is London and the food is restaurant style, not cantina. The hot sauce is delicious and smoky, a bit more tex-mex than Mexican but still hot and tasty. The guacamole is excellent although a very small serving, it is cheap at around £1 so order a couple if you're more than two people.

The atmosphere could do with some work as it felt like we were in a cafeteria with the placement of tables.

Service was also excellent with an abundance of servers at 6:30pm (presumably because it gets busy later) and very attentive.

I'd definitely go back!
