Excellent service, food is very good, and to my taste the best Mexican fare currently served in Ottawa. While not truly outstanding, a very good place.

Best service always! Of course, we are their best customers...we tip not only the waitress/waiter...we tip those that bring us hot fresh chips!!! Great food, not only on Taco Tuesday, and probably the best salsa in town, just the right amount of heat... stop in, eat and enjoy. Tell them I sent you! Just kidding...

I prefer this over El Mezcal. It is a smaller place, but the food is alway good and the queso is delicious. They usually have specials that are pretty good too!

Pros - Food is usually amazing for small town Mexican. And it's by far my favorite in town. The food is priced great and they have a good variety of stuff. Then, bonus, on Sundays kids eat free!

We've eaten here many times. Food always consistently good. Fast service. Good value. We like 99 cent taco Tuesday's. Lots of choices. Today enjoyed enchilada plate with delicious mole sauce, something different for Ottawa, with rice, beans, and a yummy frozen Margarita; all for $5.55. Couldn't even eat it all.

Between my family and I, we have tried almost everything on the menu and have yet to find something we didn't like. We absolutely love the service and the food is always delicious with big enough servings that we usually need to go boxes. We have been going to El Sol quite frequently since it opened, and I doubt that... More

The food was good, they were having trouble keeping up with the crowd due to not having enough staff. The Margarita's were very strong, cut back on the alcohol a little bit and we would have probably drank a couple more.
