Returned after previous great experience - wonderful Spanish style tapas restaurant - small with great atmosphere and service - fantastic selection of home made tapas - really tasty, washed down with authentic Sangria. Looking forward to next visit - highly recommend

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

Our second visit - this time with friends. There were seven of us and we were well looked after and well fed for £80 including tip.

We sat in the window and watched the world that is Brighton drift by. Better than TV any day. We weren't that hungry so ordered the bread, which came with some really tasty olive oil and some garlic mayo. Then we ordered two tapas plates - the tortilla and aubergine in tomato sauce topped with manchego. Both were delicious. I... More

We had a lovely night after we took a notion for Tapas! Food was amazing and service was lovely, great atmosphere as its so small and quaint! Would absolutely go back & recommend to anyone. Avoid the "back room" - we prebooked and it was all they had but luckily when we got there they had a space in the... More

Looking for somewhere to eat at 9.15 on a friday night walked past and noticed that it looked busy so tried our luck. Glad we did. This matched anything I've had in Spain. They do warn that it can take a while between dishes and they are served in no particular order but that's how it should be. You order... More
