For mains I had the Sea bass, have to say it was one of... More

Very good restaurant in the grounds of The Heritage Hotel and Golf Club. The staff are excellent, friendly and professional. The food has always been good, I've been coming here for about four years but in the last few months the food has gone up in standard. Their pizzas are great, I love the fish dishes and the men in...

I have been to Sol's about 10 times now over the last 2 years and it is always top class! The food is mouthwatering - I have tried pretty much every thing on the menu at this stage (my favourites being the steak and sea bass). Both the food and the staff who have been working there for many years... More

We are regular visitors to this restaurant. Visited with family last night and as always had a wonderful experience. The food, staff and ambience are second to none. Special mention to Abdul and Harry who always make us feel welcome. Great options for kids too with all mains being available in kid sized portions. Highly recommend.

Great food, atmosphere & staff. A special mention to Abdul, Harry & Grace for making a great fuss of us! There were 6 of us for dinner - so lots of variety with food choices & everyone loved their choices. I had the cannelloni & it was delicious. My 2 nieces were with us, aged 11 & 13 and they... More
