“Some good food, but way too expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Not to be confused with "Mar y Sol" in Flamingo, Sol y Mar used to be the best place to eat. Haroldo makes a wonderful fish in wine sauce but prices have climbed so high now that even calamari (cheap to buy) runs about $14-16/plate and portions are really small. His pargo entero is around $20/plate and it's the smallest we've been served anywhere. Bummer.

“The View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

Not a better place to watch the sunset - which is only surpassed by the food - the Tuna and Sea Bass are delicious. Great staff as well.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2012

My wife and I had lunch athere with a very pleasurable experience. The waitress spoke English enough to answer any questions we had. Our food was very good and plentiful, We plan to return for dinner another some night. Reasonably priced. Everything was quite clean...very unusual for Potrero Beach area.
