Stopped here for breakfast and was absolutely delighted with the whole experience. Service was outstanding on a busy morning , we were greeted as soon as we walked in and ushered to a lovely spot by the window . Coffee was good and strong - we both had the coffee con leche. I had the veggie omelette with beans that... More

A little too American. I've had Cuban out of state and it was perfect. I'll have to try this place again. I had black bean burger and it was just ok. My husbands black bean soup was like Progresso. But my aunt and uncle had the coconut shrimp and a soup with mushrooms and onion and they loved it. The... More

Let me start by mentioning that we did NOT order food at Sol, so we can not comment on the food. The menu looked like it had some nice options, original for the area. Now, as far as a "rum bar". They offer a drink menu with about a dozen rum drinks... most of which are pretty basic. When I... More

This review is concerning their new location on E. State St. My wife and I have enjoyed the selection of Cuban inspired dishes especially Ropa Vieja and Island Pork. The atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable due to a larger space than their place on Court St. The wait staff have consistently been attentive - the levels of our drinks, making... More

My first experience at trying Cuban cuisine and I was impressed! I will definitely visit Sol's again and hope to bring my husband next time.

The decor is very interesting, very intimate. The food is delicious with such a meld of flavors. Portion size is generous.

This place has an interesting concept of not being able to leave a tip, instead they build the tip into their pricing. Considering this is a college town I was kind of surprised with the prices that they had. The meal I had was decent, the kitchen staff not so terribly friendly. The bar staff was great! Very helpful in... More

Awesome atmosphere, this restaurant is tucked away down an alley right off Court Street. Since it was Homecoming Weekend, they were super busy, but our servers were still awesome and accommodated our large group nicely. I got the fish tacos and while they were delicious, the portion size was a little small. The margaritas were yummy, even for the bottom... More

It's a very quaint little place with limited seating. This is a favorite for my family, it's good for lunch and dinner. Everything is made very well, but the fish enchiladas and the ribs are especially tasty. The wait staff is always very nice, as are the owners, who are there often. If you are making a trip to Athens,... More

My Nephew suggested Sol for lunch as I am a big cuban sandwich fan and was anxious to try theirs. The cuban was delicious, served with plantain chips... a nice touch. This is a small restaurant off the beaten path with a lot of personality.
