We had a lovely meal at Cafe Del Sol. The menu was great, and the food was very well prepared. I couldn't finish my serving of Risotto! The restaurant has a wonderful vibe, and is very busy. This is why booking is essential. We went on a Wednesday evening, and the restaurant was full. The decor is beautiful and the... More

We had a lovely celebration evening here. The welcome was warm with good waiting. The atmosphere is warm and the room beautifully decorated, but unpretentious. I had the stuffed calamari which was delicious, with angel hair noodles. My sister's pizza looked delicious. We asked them for some candles on a cake and this was produced no problems. Will definitely return... More

We have never left Cafe Del Sol feeling disappointed or ripped off. The food is outstanding and servings generous but not excessive. One leaves the restaurant feeling well-fed and gloriously satisfied. The one drawback is the popularity of the restaurant - it is difficult to get a Friday or Saturday dinner reservation without booking well in advance, and it tends... More

If you're looking for some good Italian food at a restaurant with great ambience then this is the place to go. All around the table the food was good, penne prawn chorizo, lamb risotto and chorizo risotto were some of the good dishes we had as mains. The salmon fish cakes are also good. We were quite a big table,... More

The atmosphere in the bar area is great. The bar snacks are to die for. Unfortunately, we got the member of staff starting that evening and he was not adequately supported. The bill was wrong albeit unlikely there was an overcharge as one thing added one thing omitted. and then the free shots....... The food was good, although the cause... More

My wife and I visited Cafe Del Sol Botanica for our date night and was pleasantly surprised. We arrived early for dinner and spent some time in the adjacent bar which was a nice start to the evening.

Sign of a good restaurant is one that never disappoints. Cafe Del Sol Botanico has become exactly that with food that tantalises. Interesting variations on classical Italian dishes with the perfect vibe. Impressive drinks menu compliments perfectly. And that bar. What a bar!

Description
Cafe del Sol Botanico
When the seed of Cafe del Sol was planted many years ago, we nourished, nurtured and tended it with love and pride. As Cafe del Sol grew and blossomed, we, and our guests, grew with it. From the fruit of Cafe del Sol, a new seed took root - Cafe del Sol Botanico.

Here, surrounded by the vivid colours and secret language of plants, we celebrate that great healer and teacher - Nature. Here, we celebrate the delightful blend of fine food and fine company.

Here, we welcome you and yours - for you are ours too.
