I lived in Newport for many years. I’m a So Ca native. This was my first visit to Sol and... this is the best Mexican food anywhere. I highly recommend it for locals and visitors! Great service, price, ambiance and food.

Really recommend the CRISPY COKE-CHINITAS entrée. Top notch food. I'd have given this place a 5th star had the atmosphere been a bit less loud on this and most other stays - a couple of tables clearly had enjoyed their margaritas more than was fun...More

I love the food at SOL Cocina, tacos are always good, the corn on the cob is carved off tableside, guacamole very good, chipotle shrimp quesadilla. House margarita is ok, go for one of the specialty ones--much better. Service is...slow, but cordial, so if you're...More

Sol was close to where I was staying and dropped in. This is upscale Mexican food. Extensive menu. The food was outrageous. Top shelf tequila. I ate at the bar and the service was great. Don't miss Sol if you are in the area.
