    La comida está espectacular, bien de precio, pero la bebida me pareció un auténtico abuso, nos cobraron 63€ por tres copas de champán (el camarero nos la ofreció y jamas pensamos que fueran copas de 21€) nos quedamos con mal sabor de boca por la bebida, sin embargo la comida genial, pedimos la torre de mariscos para compartir y una tabla de quesos irlandeses; ambos genial.

    Very impressed with the overall quality and service of staff team. Ordered the lobster and it was amazing 🤩, my son ordered the steak and sweet potato fries, and loved it. My waitress was outstanding and spot on in her service, offered great tips in my selection of wine to go with my lobster 🦞, 👍🏾. Love this place 😊

    Good food and nice service. My starter, scallops, had good texture but tasted bland - the taste of crispy panacetta was more prominent. Otherwise good, my husband who celebrated his birthday was satisfied.

    Mostly great, But bit too pricy for the experience and food. Bit annoying when server asks every few minutes if the everything is ok, makes you feel like they don't trust the food coming out.

    We got a voucher for Fire restaurant last year but decided to use it in Sole as we had never been there. Fantastic decision! The food is amazing, great value for money. The bar seating was great, getting to watch the barman David create beautiful cocktails was a real treat. Felt fancy but not too formal. Lots of families dining when we were there which created a warm atmosphere. We will definitely be back!

    Couldn’t give any stars as didn’t eat there. I’d booked the 5pm slot for early bird. Arrived 5pm on the dot. Waiter brought evening menu & when I said we were there for early bird they said we were too late. Manager went & asked chef but he said no so we left. So disappointing as it was our wedding anniversary & I’ve heard such good things was really looking forward to it😔

    I cannot imagine another place where everything comes together as perfectly. From the first sip of champagne through the dessert wine, every detail was beautifully manicured. Starting with the service, Josip the manager orchestrates the symphony of staff and food. The waitstaff(Constanza) and the bartenders are consummate professionals. Oh wait, did I mention the food; absolutely first class!
