Yet again I have been impressed with the quality and range of breakfasts available at El Sol. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. It is fresh and the service is just as good. I unreservedly recommend this establishment for all meals, but I particularly like the breakfast.

A quite delightful all year-round restaurant which offers a wide range of well-prepared food in pleasant surroundings. Under friendly English ownership for over 30 years, old friends and new customers can expect the same warm welcome. Highly recommended.

We returned to El Sol on our latest trip to La Manga for dinner twice during the stay. The menu still offers a great choice of dependable food and wine. We had the cod with chips and peas and the gammon served with chips, peas, egg and pineapple on our two visits, once with a bottle of the red and... More

We went to Bar El Sol after recommendations and looking at previous comments, we tried the fillet stake and we were not disappointed, it was amazing, our youngest wanted to cut it with a knife to see what the fuss was about and he was impressed which is no small feat. Great for families, chicken curry also a must.

Superb all around restaurant. Always very welcoming. The owners always in attendance and working so the standards are very high. Great menu del dia every day. A fantastic selection of Spanish/English Al La Carte Food. Breakfast is superb. I could not fault Bar El Sol well worth a visit, I guarantee you will return.

Best all round food in La Manga. English/ Spanish. Breakfast, Lunch , Evening Meal, all fantastic. This is the difference between a chef preparing your meal and a cook. This is the difference in a professional waiter/ barman to a server. Could not fault this restaurant/ Bar. Always very welcoming always top top service. Five Stars🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞
