Tasteless food. Over priced. Toilets were dusty & smelly. Some staff were friendly & one quite abrupt & could not be bothered . Eat out a lot and certainly will not be returning

Hadn't visited the Sol before. We had to be in Darlington parked up in Duke Street. We decided to go in on the basis that it was the restaurant with the most people in. We had 5 tapas. They were nicely cooked and served with really good sauces. The service was very good, informative and prompt. Will certainly be back... More

Visited as a group of 4 on a Saturday night. Ordered 15 tapas between us and a set meal. Atmosphere was lovely, nice small place (bigger places like this can be noisy) but this was great. Staff were lovely, efficient and helpful. Food came in good time, was beautifully presented and lovely. The beef literally fell apart and the steak... More

Sol Tapas were warm and welcoming. They served a party of 20. Such a wide range of starters, mains and deserts. There were no complaints from anyone- the food was excellent, very well presented, extremely flavoursome and hot!! ( not in a spicy way- all 20 people had hot food.) I don't visit the town very often for food but... More

Visited Sol Tapas a couple of times in the past couple of months, and it seems consistently good. I've yet to chose from the tapas menu - maybe next time - but I can confirm the black pudding on mash starter is amazing, and the streak is absolutely to die for. I struggle to think of a better steak I've... More

The tapas arrived very quickly after we had ordered them and all seven arrived at once, which suggested that the food wasn't prepared to order - dishes that should have been sizzling were tepid. The 'chorizo' wasn't and, along with the patatas aioli, was served up in a gloopy cheap catering sauce. The rocket salad, at £3.95 for a handful... More

Very disappointed at your review. There was no complaints received from you at the time and I can assure you everything we serve is fresh and we don't use 'cheap catering sauce' as it's all made by our chefs. The balsamic isn't 'fake' and we certainly do not extract as much money as possible from clients. Our reviews are outstanding,... More
