Rated as one of the best restaurants in The Gambia, El Sol offers an extensive menu of Tapas, Mexican specialties, and superb steaks, plus a selection of classic international dishes from around the world.

The beautiful contemporary outdoor and indoor settings of  El Sol are the perfect spot where to enjoy your evening,  starting with a refreshing cocktail like an Apple Mojito or a Caiparinha to relax the Gambian way before your meal. Dinner in El Sol is finished with one of our delicious dessert, and an excellent Espresso coffee.
