We had amazing breakfasts at Sotano. Fresh ingredients, tasty and not the normal egg & bacon. Serve a very good Cappuccino

Loved our breakfast at this place. Eggs Benedictine were nicely prepared, not too heavy! Service slightly slow which is a compliment. Great location on the beach drive. You feel connected with the beach and the locals. Will return!

This restaurant is perfect for anytime of day. It has the most beautiful view. Serves perfect breakfast, great hangout spot for lunches with friends. We enjoyed live performance on one of the evenings. It has an amazing vibe!

We visited Sotano for breakfast and really enjoyed the experience. It is right opposite the Promenade and doggy friendly - though the atmosphere is laid back, the food was top quality and beautifully presented. The price to portion ratio was a little high, but the...More

On the main beachfront road in Green Point, this is a busy little restaurant but this does not stop them from delivering great quality food and excellent service. A good range of food available and service is fast and efficient. I must also take my...More
