Heard lots of good things about this bar and it did not disappoint. The bar staff are friendly and efficient and there is a very good variety of drinks. We will be back.

Lunch time Tapas and wine was just a cornucopia of excellent dishes and tastes. Words can hardly do justice to this review. I understand you need to book well in advance for evenings. This speaks for itself. Clean. Friendly service. Beats my experiences of Tapas in Spain!!!

Wow. You don't expect to find such an authentic gem of beautiful Spanish cuisine in the quaint little harbour town of Broughty Ferry, near Dundee, but that you do. And if you haven't visited yet, I certainly recommend it! Highly unlikely that you'll be disappointed, based on the two occasions we've been and loved it. Beautiful food, decor and service,... More

This is an authentic Spanish Tapas Restaurant in Broughty Ferry, the service and attention to detail is fantastic nothing is too much trouble and the staff explain the ingredients of every dish to everyone at the table, my eldest daughter is gluten intolerant and the staff ensured that she and we were well catered for

Without a doubt this was the nicest tapas I've had. The set menu idea is excellent - it's great to have a selection with the mystery of not knowing what's going to come out! For those who have dietary requirements, these are checked on arrival. It's a very small restaurant which makes it feel unique. The staff are lovely; very... More

We booked and were seated at a lovely window table. We were surprised not to have menus but were happy to be told that we would be fed after any dietary requirements were considered. We were fed amazingly well. The tastes of all the different dishes were wonderful and my daughter who has recently returned from Barcelona confirmed that this... More

The tapas bar is my local. It is not cheap by any means but the food is so delicious it's worth every penny. They cater thoughtfully to all dietary requirements. I'm vegan and my dishes were brilliant, not just an afterthought. They even made me my own wee portion of aioli! Cannot recommend highly enough.

We visited the tapas bar for a lunch with family and friends and it certainly didn't disappoint. They took into consideration our dietary requirements: one vegetarian, one non-cheese eater and 3 carnivores! Upon arrival we were presented with tasty snacks of nuts and toasted corn, delicious! followed by olives which were very addictive. The food just kept on coming with... More

I love to go to Sol y Sombra when I feel homesick and need to taste proper Spanish food. Staff is also very nice and I really appreciate the effort they make to explain the food! Last time we were here, two of my friends told the waiters they didn't eat fish and they got them a good variety of... More
