Lovely tapas

First night of a 2 night stay, went here for a meal. Luckily just missed a rush and wait for table. Food was good. It welcomed children which was good for us. There was no rush or push for us to leave despite it being busy. Friendly service. Would recommend and return another time.

To sit at the bar eating tapas here is heaven. Forgot I was in the UK at one point! (due to the theme music and decor....not the cocktails... However they play a good role in the experience) loved it here will deffinately be returning

We love the Sol Bar and visit every time we come to Bowness. We visited again this time we were in town and had a lovely evening of drinks following a meal elsewhere. We didn't eat here this time but have before and would recommend it. The bar has two separate areas with an awesome selection of beers and cocktails,... More

the staff in the restaurant were extremely rude. The waiting staff were standing by the bar talking, there were only about five tables of people in the bar, and still no one approached us. After a further fifteen minutes we just got up and left. I couldn't believe how rudely we'd been treated .All in all it was a dreadful... More

Great food, great service, great atmosphere! We didn't book a table, just turned up on a Saturday night and got a table within half an hour. The place was packed and the food and service were spot on!

Have visited before and it does not disappoint us. We where staying in bowness and dropped in for early evening drinks. I tried to book a table for later on in the evening but bookings not being taken, but told you can wait and go on the buzzer system on arrival. Fine for us. Returned later on and had drinks... More
