Great restaurant, food was amazing. Was a farewell dinner for a friend emigrating to Canada. Pamela was a great hostess. We need a restaurant like this in Port Elizabeth. Gavin & Annemarie

I'd heard for years about how great Cafe Del Sol is and fully intended to try it. Now, finally getting around to going, I anticipated it would never compete with the build-up. Boy was I wrong! With the onset of winter, the warm glow from the restaurant (in an otherwise lifeless strip mall) was welcoming from first impression. The open... More

The staff are friendly and well presented, and well trained. The restaurant was completely full this Saturday night, glad we booked for a table of 6 people. Unfortunately it was so loud, we had to scream across the table to be heard. The acoustics were not good. Unfortunately as well, I have a diet of no gluten, no sugar, no... More

First visit after reading a review, luckily booked as Sunday lunch was very busy. Haven't had such an excellent meal for ages and highly recommend Cafe del sol - we had the specials which included Halloumi cheese/chicken livers (yummy) followed by Butternut/Sage ravioli done in a walnut sauce and the Nonu Ragu. Service was brilliant, will definitely return.

We went to Café Del Sol for my birthday in May, there were a party of 10 of us. The service was amazing, our waiter was amazing he told us what was on special, and just did not stop coming to ask if everything was alright, how was the food, if we needed any more drinks he was really amazing....

We went to the Olivedale branch. Glad we had booked. The place was buzzing. The staff were very courteous and attentive. Above all the choices on the menu were extensive and all four of us ordered differently and had a stunning meal. My steak was to die for! Great choice of wines too.

It does not happen often, but when it does it is great. And that is when a whole menu inspires you, and has you wanting to eating all. A little tucked away in a lost shop centre. Interesting decor, amazing food. Can not wait to go back.

We have been to Café Del Sol on Olivedale three times in the last three months. Everything on the menu is superb. Try the Steak Balsámico. ...and the Lemon Meringue pie.
