We regularly dine at sol y sombra and this particular night it was a very busy however, staff were always on hand to cater to our needs. Wonderful food and a fantastic atmosphere. Would like to say a huge thank you to Cliodhna for being so welcoming and accommodating.

Had a delicious dinner in Sol y Sombra on the 20th April. The choice of food available was great and everyone got something they enjoyed. The wine selection was also great. Looking forward to a return visit

Brought a friend here for his birthday and, as always, I'm glad this was the restaurant of choice. There was a tiny mistake with our order but the amazing service team sorted it in under 5mins. Food, service, quality and value for money always leave you feeling like you've had a real treat. Thank you x

We had a very good Mother's day lunch. Everything was excellent and very professional. Staff were extremely friendly and the whole place seems to tick over like clockwork. A credit to all involved.

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!
