“Ok food, at least clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Food would have been good but we asked for our steaks medium rare but they were definitely nearer blue, should probably have sent them back but we didnt. Staff and owner polite but more interested in the obviously wealthier customers and their women than us mere tourists.
Margaritas excellent! Bit more expensive here than the other restaurants but definitely cleaner and better standards.
Owner seems very diligent and actually moves quickly.

“ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

expensive but good food. Not much of a atmosphere but maybe that was because we ate early at 8pm. Staff got a bit annoyed that the tip was only 10%...in every other restaurant they were thrilled to have a tip of this level

“Our new fav restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Loved this restaurant, easily our new fav place. The food was amazing & a real buzz about the place. Even though it was very busy when we visited this didn't affect the service or quality.

We visited El Sol on our last night in the gambia and were not disappointed. This was our second visit to El Sol having been recommended by gambian friends.
