Great celebration meal on Saturday night, Linda and her team were very helpful. Not surprised it was recommended to us by a number of people. Thanks again!

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...

The staff were very accommodating, even though it was a very busy night. We asked to move table and they found a different one for us - thanks!

Increíble. La comida está muy rica, mucha calidad, es como estar realmente en España. A los turistas les encanta y a los españoles que vivimos lejos de nuestra tierra... Pues aun nos gusta más. Las veces que he ido al restaurante está muy lleno y la comida tarda en llegar, quizás sea necesario más personal o más organización. Recomendado 100% Posdata: se echa de menos una paella y tortilla de patatas en el menú

We had an amazing time at Sol y Somba! When they found out it was my birthday and our wedding anniversary, a young waiter named Clive called us back for a drink at the bar after we were finished dinner! Not only a drink, but he made the most divine cocktail and then they landed out with delicious ice cream desserts with candles for my birthday and our wedding anniversary! It was a lovely gesture! Fabulous cocktails and great food! What more could you want! Delighted with my experience there and I cannot wait to come back! Thank you so much to everyone there for a great nite! Marie xoxo

Nice tapas restaurant, lovely food and good portions. Very friendly staff. A bit noisy at the end as the place turned into a disco but good place all in all

Had a great evening - again. The important thing SyS provides is consistent high quality. There's nothing to complain about, apart from not being able to eat everything on the menu!

Beautiful place, lovely friendly atmosphere. We booked last minute and were lucking enough to secure a table on a Saturday evening in the mezzanine area upstairs. We were seated in a cosy corner but the only downside was we were forgotten about and had to ask for someone to come and take our order. Overall a good experience with delicious food.

Food was excellent however the service wasn't up to the usually excellent standard experienced in previous visits. Would work better if waiters were asigned set tables/areas and took care of those tables from start to finish.
