Description: SoL's authentic tapas and plates span the flavours of the Mediterranean, from the tapas bars of Spain and the bistros of France to the zouks of Morocco. Sun-kissed spices of the Mediterranean tickle your tastebuds. Beautiful, passionate food for a sustainable lifestyle. Chef Elatouabi takes pride in offering locally sources products, supporting BC's farmers, ranchers, and fishmongers. An approachable and reasonably priced wine list and a spacious, heated patio on Coal Harbour's seawall offer the perfect excuse to sit back and remember why you love Vancouver.

A great location overlooking the marina near the Westin Hotel. The menu is limited, but a good cross section of options from seafoods to meats and vegan options as well. Plating is done as an art - very nicely done. We had the squid steak and chicken bastilla as starters. The presentation was beautifully done. The squid was served with a sauce that really complemented the flavour of the squid. The chicken bastilla was served with a chutney that was wonderful and brought the Morrocan flavours to the forefront. Sable fish and lamb were our next choices. They were very good. The fish had nice textures and served on a medley of mushrooms that was very flavourful. The lamb was served on a bed of couscous with dried apricot, fig and toasted almonds. A really good combination. The sauce on the couscous was a little salty for my taste, but worked well with the other ingredients. Desert was the Moroccan beignets - with a light dusting of icing sugar, it was a nice ending to a good dinner.

The beer and wine options were good - I tried the pale ale and was very happy that it worked with the exotic flavours of the meal.

If you are in the neighbourhood and want to try something outside of the regular Denman Street fare, it is worth it!

Place looks great but food was uninspired and dull. The couple next to had a platter that looked like it had four lumps of baby food. To be avoided.

We went for restaurant week in 2013 in Vancouver. We enjoyed the diversity of food choices of differing ethnicities. The prep was nicely done. The food was presented creatively. The taste was great. Out of the way location at the end of Denman street right on coal harbor.

If you are looking for a change from the traditional Italian, Chinese, French or North American foods this is the place to be. The Moroccan spices make the difference. Nothing overdone and everyone in our group enjoyed the food. No wow factor but the location and service makes this a restaurant that you should at least try out, we weren't disappointed.

we discovered Sol on a walk along the waterfront to Stanley Park. It was a bit early for lunch, but we asked if they were open as the specials board was out at 11:30, and we were assured that they were indeed open

We were seated in the outside area, and our order was taken promptly. Drinks were brought and starters came fairly quickly, and were totally delicious. Mains followed soon after and service throughout was exemplary.

The menu was short but varied and what we had was very tasty and well priced given the restaurant's location. We have no hesitation in recommending it to our fellow travellers
