Good relation quality and price

I was with my couple. It's not the typical touristic place. The terrace is wonderful. In front the sea and in the beach. I recommend to ask about the fish of the day and the dishes of the day. I am sure we will come back

Any visit to Pals can be enhanced by a visit to the Solimar. Beachside, relaxed and with attentive staff there is little not to like. More cafe dining than sophisticated cuisine but enjoyable for the occasional visit. I will re visit.

Great local style food well cooked switch friendly service. Highly recommended, book early during high season. A table on the terrace overlooking the beach is very nice not the right direction for a sunset but still great views.

I visited this restaurant with my parents for the first time 33 years ago. Until today they deliver always: great service, good food, nice spot at the beach and fair value. My kids love it. Good casual place with quality food, ideal also for large groups. Menu never changes.

This restaurant actually came recommended to us...Unfortunately. initially the waiter guided us to the side of the restaurant as all beach front outside tables were full. We took his word. I am gluten free and so far had no problems but from the start of our dining experience I knew I would leave hungry. The waiter had good English apart... More

We loved eating on the beach - children could play in the sand while we waited (and they were also provided with colouring-in things). The service was quite fast, very friendly, and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I've been going to Sol i Mar for 30 years. My parents took us there as kids and yesterday I took my kids. If you're at the beach it's advisable to call in on your way past and book a table for lunch or dinner as in the high season it's usually booked out. We were greeted, seated and a... More

The restaurant is located on the beach, offering good views and a pleasant atmosphere. It is possible to dine both inside and out and is a perfect location for parents to observe their children on the beach whilst they (parents) enjoy a coffee or a drink. The staff are pleasant and helpful and prices are reasonable. There is a varied... More
