Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

this bay part of the Paulilles beach is beautiful but the restaurant is a picture post card version of what you would love to see.... but the food is amazing... I had the cod gratin ... sounds simple but honestly wow.... service is great, location...is to die for... my wife has the squid and it was amazing too ... its not easy to find but if you are ever close call and book... not expensive and you will feel like you won the bay :-)More

Saturday lunchtime. Tried to reserve patio table (ask for one near window in shade) by telephone but no answer at 10.30am. We arrived early - no preferred seating available although several tables remained vacant for the entire lunch period. Friendly staff. Attentive service. Good menu...guidance. Anchovies were delicious entré. Crab rillette was so-so - under-seasoned. Seafood platter (shared main course) was a car crash of undercooked fish and over-cooked squid. Once again, everything was under-seasoned. Prawns tasted odd (not off, but somewhat “muddy”) and we weren’t warned about shell-fish despite asking for details of the dish (language issues, perhaps). Not enough carbohydrate to accompany platter - just two dry potatoes. Beautiful location but restaurant felt a bit shabby and unloved. Next time it will definitely be a posh-picnic on the beach - and a LOT of change from €118 - the bill for two adults, one child, three starters, one shared platter, two ice cream desserts, one coffee, some soft drinks and NO alcohol. Disappointing - sadly would not return or recommend.More

I have been here twice many years ago. I was there with a group of friends. We had fantastic evenings there. I love this place.

Terrible place where you're just entitled as money holder. Waiting staff pushing for you to order lots and expensive dishes. They'll kick you out as soon as you are done with the plate. It will ruin your evening. Pricey, but good food. Too bad they're...so customer blind. Prefer le poisson rouge.More

The restaurant is cool, nice style with a beautiful view on the beach and the sea. Food is comparable to the view. Me and my friends ordered a bream ("dorade" en Français) which was delicious. Price was in line with the quality standards offered.

We ate sunday lunch with 8 people. The food has a lovely Catalan influence and we shared 2 huge dishes, zarzuela, a fish soup and a wonderful prawn and pasta dish. The food was superb! Great and friendly service too. Loved it.

The best thing about Sole Mio is their private parking right by a quiet beach hidden on the Spanish border. Unfortunately the restaurant itself is no more than average.

Walking along the beach we stopped at this bar/restaurant for a drink. Despite being nearly empty we were told they were only serving lunch and we were turned away. Surely six beers would not have been too difficult and would have generated some income from...his empty tables.More

Over the years I've been here many times and I and my family have always enjoyed our various meals and made the most of the terrace overlooking the beach of this lovely little bay. This time we had 4 small grandchildren with us who spent...most of the time on the beach, only returning to the table to eat their lunch. Hence not annoying other diners! We all ate fish, some locally caught, all were well cooked. I've never had a bad meal here in the past 10 years. Good friendly service, even when busy. But it does get busy, so a little patience needed sometimes! Whether à deux or en famille, it's the first place we book before arriving on holiday! Best to book early as parking is limited.More

Dusty tables, small portions of not very interesting food served with an off hand manner. Poor choice of expensive wines. We ate here because we had come to the beach. Had we known that at the other end of the beach that there was a...really good restaurant on a vineyard next to the same beach we would not have bothered with sole mio.More

Our dinner by the shore was quite lovely. We had the house sangria and a seafood stew that was well-seasoned and quite generous, but lacking any kind of vegetables at all. The prices are a bit steep for what you get in terms of quality...(presentation, etc), but if you want a solid meal with a great view and attentive service, this fits the bill.More

Popular, so make sure you either book or are prepared to wait. Lovely outdoor seafood restaurant literally 3 minutes walk from the water's edge. Friendly, attentive staff - great fish and daily specials plus great ice cream. What is not to like! Sea bream (dourade)...was huge, fresh and delicious.More

Second visit. My fortieth birthday. Scallop carpaccio delicious. Prawns nicely cooked. Turbot a little over done. Nice wine recommendation and very, very charming waitress. Beautiful beachfront location. Three courses, half bottle of rosé, coffees, €130. A little steep but a special occasion.
