About
El Sol, Steak house, Mexican Cuisine & Beyond is a restaurant serving modern Mexican and international food in a trendy and cosy setting at affordable prices. We have an excellent reputation as Steak house and we can be found in the Senegambia area 50 steps away from Aquarius Night Club Kololi. Enjoy pre-dinner cocktails at our bar or have some tapas and drinks on our terrace. After dinner we serve hot drinks like Irish Coffee, Cappuccino and a range of desserts. El Sol is not only for a romantic dinner, but also an lovely evening out with family and friends.
