Excellent! We had heard great reviews about this restaurant and we were not disappointed. With a vegetarian, a pescatarian and a carnivore to cater for we were a little sceptical at the idea of a set menu but we all enjoyed amazing and delicious food. Nibbles to start followed by salads, meat, fish and veg all beautifully presented and lots... More

Probably the best Spanish tapas we have had outside Spain. Particularly enjoyed the hake and asparagus wrapped in ham. Couldn't fault any of the food. Had a glass of good red wine each but wouldnt recommend the sangria. Service was very welcoming and friendly. Pleasant decor upstairs and down.

We were very lucky to get a table for two without booking for Sunday lunch. Warm and extremely friendly atmosphere in a cosy setting. The staff and owner were instantly likeable and extremely good at their jobs. Most importantly the set menu was incredible. Every dish was delicious. I would advise bringing a healthy appetite! Could not have been better.

Great spot for last nights tea with partner & fam. Great location and decor. Starts off with wee nibbles such as olives and nuts. The girls ordered a jug of sangria which i normally dislike, but the one here was spot on! The cold (starter if you will) was extremely fresh. We opted for the hake and prawns fish-wise for... More

Our 1st visit here last night.... will definitely not be our last. Amazing food, loved the fact that after asking a few questions about your likes/dislikes/allergies they bring you a huge selection of tapas. Each dish better than the one before. If you're going to be in Broughty Ferry, do yourself a favour and book a table here. Amazing food... More

Our first visit to Sol y Sombra..... we thought it was great. Really friendly staff and excellent food. I like that you're served a variety of tapas dishes without choosing.... This no doubt this means you'll try things you wouldn't usually order. One of our party was a veggie and she was really well catered for. The amount of food... More

My teenage son had agreed to let me take him out for a meal to celebrate his recent birthday. I booked a table at Sol Y Sombra which then had to be cancelled at the last minute. The staff couldn't have been more helpful in rearranging the booking to suit me (last Saturday evening). As my son is a fussy... More

Loved this place. Tapas was amazing and with such generous portions we couldn't eat everything. Cocktails were pretty good as well and I wouldn't hesitate recommending this place to anyone looking for a great venue for a romantic dinner or fun gathering with friends.

Visited this tapas bar on a romantic weekend away after reading the reviews on here and it excelled my expectations. Great value for money tapas with so many different dishes provided. My partner does not like fish while I have an allergy to peppers and they accommodated for both of us! The choice was amazing with all dishes tasting delicious.... More
