Loved this place. Tapas was amazing and with such generous portions we couldn't eat everything. Cocktails were pretty good as well and I wouldn't hesitate recommending this place to anyone looking for a great venue for a romantic dinner or fun gathering with friends.

Visited this tapas bar on a romantic weekend away after reading the reviews on here and it excelled my expectations. Great value for money tapas with so many different dishes provided. My partner does not like fish while I have an allergy to peppers and they accommodated for both of us! The choice was amazing with all dishes tasting delicious.... More

My wife and I were visiting Broughty Ferry for a one night break, and decided to try Sol y Sombra as it has had rave reviews. We were not disappointed!!! We ordered a single tapas meal (which we shared), and we both agreed that the cooked meal was one of the best we've ever had!!! The chefs are Spanish, so... More

The waiter asks for allergy and dietary requirements of the diners then brings out a lot of different dishes. As soon as plates are emptied it is replaced with another! I was a little nervous as I wasn't sure whether I would like everything but I enjoyed the majority of the dishes. 2 of our party do not eat prawns... More

Our group of 4 had a great meal here with a brilliant range of dishes to suit most tastes!! However, I informed the staff I didn't eat cheese and one of my alternative dishes was simply a gherkin on a stick!!!! Think there should surely be a different option!! The rest was great though!!

Had a lovely family lunch here. We were unsure of the format as there was no menu, but the owner asked us about any dislikes or allergies before producing a range of tapas to share over two courses. My partner doesn't eat cheese and replacements were provided for those elements. For me there was nothing not to like, everything was... More

I am astounded that this restaurant is rated number 1 in Dundee. The food lacks any subtlety in flavour or finesse in cooking. Perhaps the biggest culinary crime however is that the meat was all over cooked and as a consequence very dry and heavy. I wonder if I was there on an "off night" or that I simply don't... More
