Traveling through Athens we decided to stop and give Sol a try. So much more than s Mexican restaurant, sol is truly a restaurant with a Mediterranean flair. Food and service was great while price was moderate to higher.

When people say "Sol" many people think of Mexican food, however, this place has a variety of food. It is great for people who like to try new things, You can go here multiple times in a week and get a different cuisine each time.
