Starters : Both had mushrooms stuffed with chicken liver pate, served with onion marmalade from specials board. I will attempt to make these at home as they were so tasty !! Our son had cheese garlic bread. Main :... More

Good and interesting food, great service and atmosphere. Liked the Albondigas de Bacalao. Good for casual or an event. Locals go there.

I tried this restaurant on my second night and returned several times for my evening meals. The food is a mixture of Italian with Spanish and Moroccan influences in some of their dishes. Great atmosphere, family friendly and you will find many locals eating there.

When we lived in Gibraltar this was one of our favourite restaurants. We returned again this evening and were greeted like old friends. The food and service was just as good as we remembered. I had the grilled mullet with couscous on the specials menu and my wife had the tuna. Both were perfectly cooked and well, presented. A great... More

What a fabulous place. There are two Cafe Solo's and I went to the one opposite Europort. The service was excellent and I had the best Caeser Salad I have ever had properly made and with great ingredients. My colleagues also had exceptional meals. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Would've had a higher review but for the waiter not mentioning the specials board and I quite fancied some of them and also our coffee was a bit slow arriving. Still, the food was great, very tasty and well seasoned. Don't recommend the olives, curry flavour, really?? Nice location in the square on a warm evening in September. Very nice

We have been to this restaurant twice now after being so impressed the first time. We both ordered a starter and a main and the waiter told us to share a starter as there would be 'too much food'. We followed his advice and he was correct, we both struggled with the main course as the portions are not only... More
