Options of a multple "tick box" tapas menu or a very nice set menu. Staff are always attentive and will guide you through the... More

Visited Sol Tapas for the first time and was more than pleasantly surprised. We had the two course tea time special which was delicious. The menu is plenty and varied. For starters I had a mouth watering goats cheese in filo pastry, accompanied by a fresh side salad and my husband had home made ham and cheese croquettes with creamy... More

We have visited Sol Tapas at Darlo on several occasions and we always left happy. Very good choice of food tapas dishes and drink, highly recommended Sangria. The staff is always very helpful, even though it can be very busy during the night. Probably the best restaurant in Darlington.

I've been to Sol Tapas before but not for a long time and I'd forgotten just how great this place is. The food was very well presented, an Instagram photo waiting to happen! As well as being very pretty the food was also clearly very good quality produce, cooked to perfection and extremely tasty. I'd recommend the "creamy cajun chicken"... More

Sol Tapas is a regular of ours, we start the evening with a discussion of where to go and we nearly always end up here, the food is delicious and the menu offers a hearty meal or a light tapas, so whatever you fancy it is there. There is also a good selection of wine to complement your food and... More

Kept waiting for our (pre-booked) table for 15 minutes standing in the restaurant where the service was being carried out so we had to lean on the wall to be out of the way of the waiting staff while other tables were seated ahead of us despite us being in the restaurant first! Food was served quickly and was tasty... More
