Fantastic afternoon at Sole.... our first time. Our waiter (Ante) was really great - his personality and good humour added to the whole experience. The oyster / rose tasting starter was amazing. While outdoors the heating provided was perfect. Very sad to hear you are closed now until the Covid restrictions are reduced again. Will definitely be back. Thank you.

Myself and my girlfriend had a lovely 6 year anniversary meal at Sole. Great atmosphere and warm interactions with staff. The waitress who looked after us was a trainee but seemed as if she was fully trained and working there for years, unfortunately I didn't get her name but she was blonde. Emil was also great help with delivering our food and was really kind and generous! All staff seemed extremely professional, as well as the amazing food and drinks that we had. 10/10 would definitely come back

Sole provided a great venue for a good catch-up with a dear friend. The attention from the serving staff was second to none. The food was beautiful and the drinks made with attention to detail and served with elegance. Just what one needed in the midst of the pandemic. Till my next visit, stay safe and you are missed!

We came for the first time, we were to be seated outside and it was quite windy but they did not hesitate to find us a spot inside which was very appreciated considering the weather. The service was outstanding and the food was unbelievable . Our waiter Emil was an absolute gentleman he recommended fantastic wine and helped myself choose what to eat and I was not let down , I tried the Norwegian king crab accompanied by a delicious white wine which left me dreaming for more . Excellent presentation looking forward to going back.

Has a fabulous meal in Sole on Saturday night. The atmosphere was great, our waiter Ante was very friendly & provided great service. I had the Sole Meuniere for main, it was delicious, I would definitely recommend it. It's a bit expensive but I couldn't fault the food at all. I'll definitely be back, perfect place for a treat or special occasion.

Second visit and equally as good as the first. Their mixed seafood double-decker platter is exceptional. They also have a choice of five oysters which is impressive. Another favorite is squid tempura. Washed down by Veuve Cliquot who wouldn’t drive miles for such a treat.
If you’re not crazy about seafood their steak was melt in your mouth.
We spent approx €100 per head but we over-ordered so the doggie bag did us the next day’s. It was a celebratory dinner and the ‘congratulations’ dessert was a lovely touch. Super friendly staff.
