The food is delicious there... all the food. Believe me, I ate there so many times - read here : TOO many times! - and I am quite picky with food. True french-italian pastas and pizza, private importation of wine which means it's a pure pleasure to drink! More expensive than other but so cheap compared to a true italian... More

This place is rather expensive compared to the rest of the establishments on the island. The food is tasty, however you can eat better food for les money. The thing that bothered me a bit, is that they do not serve any Thai food. Whilst travelling I want to try as many of the 'local' cuisine as possible. Might be... More

Went there alone for dinner. Had a seafood spaghetti although I was not hungry. Still find it very nice and well done. Staff were friendly and service was fast and efficient. Food did not take too long to come.

After seeing how recommended this restaurant was on trip advisor I was extremely let down by my own experience of it. First of all we had to wait over one hour for garlic bread, then my main course was very poor. I opted for the burger, I didn't even eat 3/4 of it. Extremely bland and dry, the fries were... More

We were staying around the corner from cafe del sol and ended up going there four times. They do great breakfasts, proper sausages bacon and hash browns that live up to the Irish standard of fry ups. The full English breakfast is a huge feed and only costs 200 baht, which is expensive for breakfast I suppose but really fills... More
