A few friends met for dinner. Lovely modern setting. This restaurant is for shell fish lovers.
Cocktail while we waited was very nice.

My partner had the classic prawn cocktail to start, which was average. I had the squid tempura - this was disappointing relative to the same dish elsewhere. The service was very slow and inexperienced - even allowing for the time of year.

I had the fish pie for main, which was lovely, plenty of fish types in it. My partner had the crab salad with fries for main, which was meager in size. Others had the seafood towers - these are the main reason to eat here in my opinion.
We drank white wine. The wine was very expensive and passable in quality.
The Red wine selection available was poor. For anyone ordering the very expensive steak option on the menu, you may struggle with selecting a quality glass of red wine.

Overall - the group impression was that it was over-priced. 10% added automatically for groups of 6 or more.

I won’t be going back. I’d rather spend a small bit more and eat Michelin star food.

That was our fist visit in Sole and most certainly not the last one.
A'la Cart menu was extensive but all we wanted was Sole’s Captain Seafood Tower
with amazing selection of hot and cold sea food(including whole lobster!). It is so worth the money! Everything was super fresh and tasty. We didn't ordered any starters and still couldn't finish it all. Service as well was just great. Sara, lady who greed us upon arrival, she made sure we are happy and well looked after. Ante, waiter who was serving our table was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. We could't ask for more!

Had a fantastic meal in sole! The fish was excellent and I would really recommend sole as a restaurant. We had the mussels, oysters and prawns to start, and for mains we had the lobster, king crab legs and the fish special of the day which was monkfish. Everything was cooked perfectly and the flavour was fantastic. Compliments to the chef. The service was also excellent, and Ante really looked after us. We really enjoyed our post Christmas meal and I will definitely be returning again!

Lovely relaxed setting with great food and friendly staff. The king crab legs were the highlight of the meal. We did have one person with us who didn’t eat seafood and their chicken was a bit dry - but, it’s a seafood restaurant.
Pricey but a nice treat for anyone who loves seafood
