We have visited Sol Tapas at Darlo on several occasions and we always left happy. Very good choice of food tapas dishes and drink, highly recommended Sangria. The staff is always very helpful, even though it can be very busy during the night. Probably the best restaurant in Darlington.

There is also a good selection of wine to complement your food and... More

Food was served quickly and was tasty... More

Can't give this a 5 star review as I've not been in for awhile, but I can honestly say it's a 4. Has a great feeling when you go in the dark cosyness of an old tapas bar you found tucked away in a small Spanish village where all the locals go for good food wine and drinks. It may... More
