We were recommended to this restaurant and it didn't disappoint although there are a couple of issues worth pointing out. My companion ordered a quarter chicken and got a half - which she was expected to pay for. Also, things arrive at the table, not ordered, but will be charged for. Having said that, it was delicious, I had the... More

We have frequented this restaurant for a number of years and the standard of food is as good as ever. I am aware that many customers return on a regular basis which is testament to the food quality. If you are in Los Cristianos and are looking to dine, give this place a try, I'm sure you won't regret it.

I first visited El Sol with my parents almost thirty years ago, and Jacques and his (mostly unchanged) team still know how to provide great food with a friendly atmosphere. Fabulous French dishes, cooked perfectly, and with all of the correct trimmings. Can't wait to see them all again next time!

Three of the restaurants I just have reviewed are vegetarian - I however, am not vegetarian but I do try. Mainly cos the food is great and I don't miss meat if its not on my plate. However, I like a stake once or twice a year when on holidays and the one I had at El Sol was just... More

...can be had at this restaurant. Visitors are greeted by the chef/patron - Jacques - and then well looked after by the attentive waiting staff. Jacques has a, shall we say, peculiar sense of humour and often makes outrageous comments but with a twinkle in his eye and a laugh. However, don't ask for Tomato Ketchup....Food is excellent, particularly the... More

A French restaurant whose speciality is chicken, so we ordered chicken and chips accompanied by bread that we did not ask for. The sauces were nice but half a chicken is half a chicken! The waiters were pushy and when a dessert was refused bordered on rude, despite the fact we had a starter each. The chips were dry and... More

Jaques the owner is the French chef who is obviously very talented! The food is stunning as far as starters, and desserts go. The main meals are delicious also however our only issue is that it comes with chips and no alternative. The sauces which accompany the chicken or steak are amazing though. The amuse bouche and breads with the... More

Loved this restaurant. Traditional French cuisine which tasted amazing. On a quiet little road off the beaten track. The chicken and sauces were beautifully cooked. Would definitely visit again on our next trip. Little more expensive but worth it.

The owner should take a holiday. You get the impression he has been at it too long and has lost interest. He rushes you and does not listen to what you are saying, hence you will often be served what he thinks which is not always the same as what you have ordered. However the food is good, but the...
