Lovely ambience. Service hit and miss, different servers at various times throughout the meal, more consistency and friendliness would have been appreciated. Food was generally good, loved the black pudding tostada and pork belly. However the monkfish/scallops racion was far too salty, and my husband's chocolate brownie dessert 'special' was dry, tasteless and practically inedible (he sent most of it back) - a brownie is one of the easiest desserts to make for even the most amateur home chefs, so how they got it so wrong in sol y sambra is beyond me - ? Was it Thursday or friday's stale leftovers flogged as a special? But would go back with friends to experience the nice atmosphere and decor, just different menu choices!

As customers, we could feel that the staff was very stressed and poorly organized. We ordered desserts that never been served and finally, we decided to leave. However, the place looks great and we'll give you another chance anytime soon.

I was really impressed with the entire evening. I loved the atmosphere and the lay out of the restaurant. The food was super, so much to choose from ... just wow! As a table of five we chose lots of different tapas and we were all delighted with what we had. Great restaurant, great evening, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Friendly attentive staff. It was all spot on! One small thing was just our white wine was quite warm, this was attended to immediately and maybe it was a very busy night and chilling space was at a premium. But thank you ...it was all super & we will be back!

Booked for 6 people. My father in law didn't receive his dish asked two different waitors about the dish they would walk off and not return. Eventually after 30 minutes I walked to the till and told them forget the order as everyone else had finished dinner and we would pay and leave. The service was awful. Its a.pity as its such a nice restaurant. Trying to even ask for more drinks or water was impossible with waiters just whizzing by taking absolutely no notice of you. I appreciate its a busy spot but dont take the bookings if your staff cant handle it. Its very disappointing and to be honest id never bother coming back here

The food, service and all around feel of the restaurant was outstanding. Great find! As a note the waitress that was previously a tour guide was extremely friendly helpful. Kudos to her!

It was our second time dining at Sol y Sombra Tapas Restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious, and the atmosphere was great, too. However, it was too busy and this affected the quality of the service provided. Nevertheless, I would highly recommend the place, as the quality of food of the taste are absolutely amazing, and it's worth waiting a bit longer for getting the dishes and then just enjoy. No word to say about the deserts... Do not miss the opportunity to try these, when visiting the place. You will be surprised how good these are... Looking forward to my next visit...
