The food is excellent, but be prepared for a LONG wait. Every time, busy or quiet, it seems 40-60 mins is the standard to receive your food. Drinks are excellent and happy hour is great, but again long wait to receive them. Better to order in bulk ;) Servers seem miserable - is it like this everywhere on the island? Cheer up, you're paid to be there! Would like to see improvements to service experience and maybe some complimentary chips & salsa on the table to make up for the long food wait? When we asked for this (chips & salsa are free and standard in Mexican restaurants in Canada & the USA) we we charged an extra $14BDS on the bill. Ridiculous. The food is good, just make sure you don't have plans after because you're going to be there a while!

Although we didn't actually eat there, we enjoyed their happy hour many times and we also had appetisers often. The place was always packed and the atmosphere was very joyful and happy. I would recommend this place but watch for the happy hour because drinks are 2 for one, otherwise all drinks are about $12-15 US each.

We are very glad that you enjoyed our happy hours and hopefully you will be able to dine with us one of these days.
I feel I must point out that you information on our pricing is, however, incorrect- our drinks are always charged and quoted on our menus in Barbados dollars and not US dollars. If we convert it for the purposes of this review, our drinks range between $3.50-$7 USD each but perhaps you thought the Barbados prices of $7-$14 BDS were in USD? This is the non-happy hour price. During happy hour it's 2 for 1 for those same low prices. We feel this represents fantastic value for money, both during and outside of happy hour.
Our one and only drink in the higher price range mentioned in the review price is our top shelf margarita (as opposed to the "regular" $14 BDS margarita) which is $22 BDS.
Kind regards
Mark and Jacinta Cothran

Lovely setting,it's the 1st restaurant you come to in the Gap.
The food is good,they have happy hours as well where it's two for one.
We we're ok and got in without any problems,but there was only two of us,it is worth booking as we saw quite a few fours turned away.It was early but very busy.
Food was good,staff helpful.
Good value.

We stopped at Cafe Sol twice during our stay. The first time we had lunch (the most delicious goat cheese salad ever!) and the second time we went in for some delicious cocktails and dinner. The portions were big and tasty, the prices were reasonable. There was a happy hour, so the drinks were cheap. The staff was very friendly and the service was quick. The atmosphere of the place was sweet, we really enjoyed it. Cafe Sol has a beautiful location, you could see the ocean while sipping the drinks.
