Great food and super service. 4 of us came here for lunch Sunday and had a superb selection of tapas. Having lived for a few years on Spain I am always disappointed by the general lack of authenticity in Spanish restaurants, but not here! All the food and wine were delicious service great and we capped it off with cafe... More

What a lucky find. The food is well priced and tastes authentic. We had 5 dishes between 3 of us and with breads and olives it was too much for us. Looking forward to returning

I have visited this restaurant twice. The atmosphere is fantastic and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. I tried lunch there and the ingredients are fresh and tasty. The sangria is very good, I highly recommend it. This restaurant reminds me of those small restaurants in Spain where you can have a bite to eat, I am wondering if... More

This fantastic gem in the North Laines is a real find. We popped in for lunch and due to the cheap prices ordered far too much food but barely left anything as it was all so delicious! My friends had a vegetarian set menu between them which left them very impressed and I ordered both the venison stew (a truly... More

Waiting outside for the rest of my dining friends on their sidewalk tables and chairs we started with a robust red wine and the jolly evening commenced! As the final guests arrived our table was ready, close to the bar top which made wine and more food ordering easy. The dishes were full and plentiful and with the good red... More

Our 2nd visit, this time in a group of 5 at 8.30 on a Friday night. As on our previous visit in June, the food was delicious with a good selection of fresh authentic dishes. Service however remains a little inattentive - had to get the waitresses attention to ask for additional items/the bill. On leaving, we made a point... More

Nice service and good good but it all comes with mayonnaise. Gets a bit samey after a while. Would go again but for drinks with a bit of food rather than food focused outing.

Visited with 2 more friends. The Sangria was very delicious. We has many different tapas, all of them were very good. Special mention is the fried aubergine with tomato, shrimp in garlic, confit duck leg. The person serving us was very friendly and dishes arrived pretty quickly. Some reviewers have mentioned about the dirty restroom upstairs but when we visited... More

Visited Solera last night to celebrate my wife's birthday. Living in Brighton I know this restaurant pretty well. Lovely intimate and authentic Spanish atmosphere serving delicious tapas. Goats cheese tapas was my favourite dish from last night. My only suggestion to the owners is to invest a little money and love into the shared bathroom which is letting the restaurant... More
