    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!

    We had the lunch / early bird menu which is very good value and plenty of choice. Food was absolutely delicious and while wine list beers towards the expensive side there are some under €40 and a good selection of glasses from €9. Beautiful restaurant with tables well spread out so can chat in comfort. There was a slight anxious moment when they couldn’t locate our reservation even though I had the open table confirmation. A staff member reassured us immediately that there was a free table and confirmed it was their mistake. It is interesting to know that a confirmation from Open Table does not guarantee a table if the restaurant fails to allocate a table on their system. To be fair it seems to be rare as they had not seen it happen before. This did not detract from what was an excellent experience.
