Description: El Sol, Mexican Cuisine & Beyond is a restaurant serving modern Mexican and international food in a trendy and cosy setting at affordable prices. Located in the Senegambia area 50 steps away from Aquarius Night Club Kololi. Enjoy pre-dinner cocktails at our bar or have some tapas and drinks on our terrace. We are now also open for lunch with a new menu of light bites, salads, burgers, sandwiches and some of our best tapas.

Used to eat at Wheezo`s but El Sol is a good replacement. Good Mexican food reasonably priced and lovely staff

We liked this restaurant as it was good to have a change from the rather samey menus in the other restaurants. The menu is mainly Mexican and very good, especially the tapas. The service was great, but it wasn't very full the night we went, so not much atmosphere. There are some tables outside.

Went here for dinner one night while in Kololi. I had great fajitas, but with rice instead of the flour tortillas (I eat gluten free...). Food was really delicious, nice ambiance with patio seating. Service was nice as well.I was suprised to find there is Mexican type food in Gambia!

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.
