Wonderful gem of a restaraunt- don't let the location scare you. Very varied menu and a ton of specials every night. Highly recommend it.

“Couldn't be better!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Was at El Solar yesterday evening after a movie with my son (18 years old). My salmon dish was unbelievably delicious. My son said that he thought that the best dish he had ever eaten was a salmon dish in Paris. He said this one was at least as good. His fish stew in a creamy tomato sauce was fresh and full of flavor. The calamari appetizer, cold, in a vinaigrette with arugula couldn't not have been more flavorful and satisfying. The food was obviously prepared with great care and creativity. I've rarely had a meal as delicious and as satisfying. The ambiance and service were both first rate. I enjoyed sitting on this particular block on Broadway in Newburgh and watching Newburgh life go by outside. I hope El Solar becomes a fixture in town. I'll be back regularly.

“Great find”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Right on Broadway in Newburgh - what a gem ! Read about this new place on Trip Advisor and was curious. Menu was nondescript but then the owner told us the extensive list of specials and waht a list. I had the Osso Buco and my wife had the salmon. Both delicious. Service was superb, place was decorated nicely and can't wait to go back

“Our Favorite Place”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Great food and excellent service make a visit to El Solar a must! The Fish Ceviche is as good as any I've ever had during my travels to S. America and the Caribbean. The wonderful Gisela makes diners feel at home in what has quickly become our favorite dining spot in Orange County. Our advice is to get there tonight!!

“The Sun ny spot in Newburgh”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I have been here several times and have never been disappointed. Kitchen is open late for a late night snack. Gisela and the crew can't do enough to keep you satisfied. From the moment you walk in they make you truly feel welcome. Once a month they tend to have some Latin flavored entertainement and there is not an empty table, reservations suggested.
The dishes are tasty and very creative. Deserts should not be overlooked.
Be sure to check out this gem. El Solar Cafe.
