We had dinner at Cafe del Sol - a lovely restaurant with a great ambiance, friendly staff and great food. The menu offers a good variety and food is fresh and tasty. Make sure you reserve a table before you go as the restaurant was packed, even on a weeknight. I had the chicken roulade with salad; one of the... More

Having raved about it to family, we decided to go for my mom's birthday. The entire evening was ruined by continuous poor service... More

We were having dinner in Cafe del sol classico, and it was amazing. we had ravioli of the day, which was really good, and another pasta dish and mushroom risotto which were great as well. For desert we had the Crepe Suzetta which was amazing too. service was good, and wine list is also great. highly recommended.

Went there in April and it was absolutely brilliant. We went there many years ago and I have always wanted to go back. The food was as good as I remember. Starters was brilliant. The halumi cheese starter was light and original. Chicken livers was very mild but very tasty. Main course we had pasta. All of which was great... More

Great experience, I came as a critic only to be humbled by the service I got from the welcome to the goodbyes. Waiter Graham took us from the door and sat us in the separate dinning room where he treated us like royalty. Waiter very knowledgeable, from customer care to good food recommendations. I will definitely call again. BRAVO
