“Average Mexican food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Here is one of the nicer restaurants and one of the few restaurants in Gambia that have air conditioning. The food is sub par, and during the weekends filled of snobby people. The food is not bad considering your eating Mexican in the Gambia. There portions not so great and prices fair but doesn't give good value. Nice to visit once.

“Splendid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This restaurant is different than the many other restaurant s in the gambia were bye majority got identical dishes on their Menu, El Sol is Unique with its Mexican Dishes in a splendid Atmosphere the location is in a new outdoor Mall and Much quieter than the Busy and Noises at Senegambia strip specially at the evenings if Kids are not on the playing Grounds which is few meters away from the seating area but only till 8pm..the dessert I like is the ice cream in Mexican style
with pastry sticks.. get a jacket on it could be chilly and windy some evenings..
