“Still fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

We first visited El Sol in December 2013, went back this year and pleased to say it was brilliant! We love the whole vibe of the place, great food, fantastic drinks (large glass of white wine for 150 dalasi which is decent, well chilled and served in a proper wine glass!) We visited 4-5 times whilst we were in the Gambia and it was consistently good each time.

“"MUY BIEN"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

During our recent trip to The Gambia my husband and i stopped at El Sol for dinner ... the setting was romantic as we dined al fresco.
We received prompt service from the Owner himself! The food was exquisite and presentation was second to none...by far the best Mexican restaurant outside of Tijuana!!!
OLE!!

“Nice food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Was really looking forward to eating here again. However the food lacked in presentation this time. The portions as still a good size, and they will add spices if you prefer to have your food hotter.
Service a bit of a let down this time. More time seems to be given to regulars .Maybe some more interaction to others from the boss would help.
