We had an evening meal here during our stay at the Sole Hotel and were really impressed with the tasty food and great service! We sat outside and enjoyed watching the world go by whilst dining with a bottle of wine. I had a Caesar salad which was fresh and tasty, and my partner had a hamburger which he enjoyed. The staff are lovely with a great sense of humour and really look after you. We found the prices to be reasonable and I would definitely recommend eating here!

Does the job quite nicely....I wouldn't fancy this for an evening meal but it's very clean and tidy and was just right for a quick scoff at lunch having visited the beach for a couple of hours.

Special t6hanks to Gaetano[the boss],Antonio,Cristiano,Francesca,Maria,Pina,and Pepe the chef.Nothing is too much trouble.We were on a half board "package deal". The food was plentiful.If there was something which didn't appeal,there was always an alternative.At lunch time we sometimes had a HUGE pitzza for 5 euros. The room was air-conditioned and very comfortable.The only downside is the small lift, and no tea making facilities in the room,but the rating is 3 star.No pool, but ptivate beach over the way.Beautiful resort,with amazing views from the breakfast roof terrace.Recommended.

My partner and I attended Sole Ristorante for dinner this evening after having been to their beach cafe for lunch several times and having a reasonably priced lunch and reading a couple of the good reviews on Trip advisor. Sadly we had a very disappointing experience at the restaurant! We asked the waiter what the fish of the day meal was and he explained to us that it was baked sole with potatoes and a mixture of tomatoes, capers and olives. I myself am not keen on baked fish, but the waiter made it sound so nice and my partner was keen so we went for it under the impression after our conversation with him that is was €15 per person (a price immediate below the description on the menu also). Sadly the food was not to my taste at all- it was bland and greasy and I had to pass it over to my partner and swap with his empty plate (I don't like to look rude by leaving a barely touched meal) after only a couple of mouthfuls. That in itself would not have stopped me returning to the restaurant as many of the other dishes on other people's tables looked appetising. It is worth mentioning that the fish portion size was also quite small after being filleted. However, when it came to the bill we were expecting to pay approximately €60 based on our one glass of wine each, water, coperto and starters. To our horror the bill came in at €80 and when we looked our main course was charged at €50! Firstly sole is a very cheap fish and certainly not €50 worth (especially for the amount we received), secondly it was bland, I barely ate mine and thought it was a very poor quality meal for this price. When we queried with the waiter he told us that there is no set price for fish of the day and that there was a blank space on the menu where the price should be, despite during our discussions prior to ordering that we were led to believe it was €15 each. In our opinion this was a very low quality main course at an extortionate price and we felt duped by the waiter! We will not return here during the rest of our holidays now and won't even go to their beach cafe for lunch out of principle! If you choose to go here make sure you set out in stone the cost of any dishes that are not clearly labelled on the menu!!

dear lady, from this review you may well notice that you don't understand anything about fish and seafood.
How can a kilo and half DIAMOND FISH costs 15 euros? If you understand at least a minimum of FRESH CATCH you would not be surprised at the price! I would be scared if I had to pay a fresh fish in a restaurant only 15 euros!
It is normal and logical that the portion of the fish decreases once drawn up by removing the head, bones, tail and skin, THAT IGNORANCE!!! You said it was not good JUST BECAUSE YOU PAID A LOT (even though you were told.) The nearby pricing menu exists mainly to be informed of all the costs and ingredients. Next time I challenge you to eat fresh fish from any other seaside resort and pay less than 50 euros.
Cara signora da questa recensione si evince che lei non capisce assolutamente nulla di pesce fresco. Neanche nella peggiore bettola di Londra può assaporare un rombo di un kilo e mezzo appena pescato per soli 15 euro! Per giunta cucinato con patate al forno e sughetto di limone, olive, capperi e pomodorini, sfilettato direttamente al tavolo! E' normale e logico che la porzione diminuisce una volta sfilettato, che ignoranza!
Ha detto che non le è piaciuto solo dopo che l'ha finito e ha notato il prezzo, il quale era specificatissimo sul menù e chiarito doppiamente dal cameriere.Infine la sfido a mangiare da qualsiasi altra parte un pescato fresco meno di cinquanta euro.

Came here after a long hard day at the beach and ordered the house wine bianco and some appetizers (stuffed squid and prosciutto & melon). Everything was absolutely delicious and the service was top! I even tried to leave my table quickly as a solo traveler and the main waiter told me to relax and enjoy the sun a while longer :) definitely recommended!
