Solon is well priced for the quality of food. Our waiter was a young boy from Prague who spoke good English. We ordered Whale, Salmon, and Lamb. All of the dishes were delicious. The atmosphere is lovely as well. Definitely a place to check out.

Great service and the food is really good too. We ate here two times, kept it fairly simple - burgers, fish of the day. In a very expensive country this was a good balance, very well done.
