A Cocktail and a smile

The best way to start your evening at El Sol is with one of our fabulous cocktails, freshly prepared at the bar in the terrace, especially when it is served with a smile!

Welcome to our new location

In summer 2021 we re- opened El Sol, just opposite our former location in Senegambia. We are happy to welcome you in the relaxed tropical atmosphere of the new El Sol, where you will find the excellent service we are known for, our attentive staff, and – of course – the wide selection of our delicious mexican dishes, international specialties, and superb steacks.

We offer a lovely outdoor bar area with comfortable seating, a fully air conditioned and tastefully decorated dining room, and a spacious terrace surrounded by a lush tropical garden.

Oops!…We did it again


Dear friends, we will be closed for a little while, our take away and delivery serviced as well.

We are already working hard on our exciting location, and very soon we will be able to welcome you again in a new El Sol!

Happy Koriteh

We hope you had a very blessed and happy Koriteh, and that you have spent a wonderful time with your family and loved ones.

We are now resuming our regular time for our Take Away Orders, which is from 12.30pm to 9pm, last order is 8.30pm. We are closed on Tuesday.

During these past weeks we have extended our Take Away menu, adding a selection of delicious burgers and sandwiches. Do you know that you can order online from our website?

Let’s fight Covid-19 together

Dear customers, we will be closed for the time being due to the pandemic of Covid-19, in order to keep you and our team safe.

We will open only for TAKE AWAY or DELIVERY orders, every day from 12.30am to 9.00pm. Last orders will be taken at 8.30pm. Closed on Tuesday.

Here is our take away menu

November is here – more menu choices

Whilst in Europe temperatures are (supposed, as it was still like spring this week in Europe we are told) dropping, in Gambia the climate is just perfect. Enjoy a dinner outside on the terrace with a light breeze coming from the nearby Atlantic Ocean.

We are back open 7 days a week for dinner from 5 pm onwards and the usual buzz is back ‘in town’.

El Sol Gambia restaurant
tender beef Teriyaki El Sol style

We have added some new dishes to our menu like our take on Beef Teriyaki and on popular demand grilled lamb chops and grilled shrimp brochettes (or as the English would say skewers).  Also our dessert selection has been expanded with some more ice cream choices and a moist soft home made carrot cake.

Not sure why we mention the word ‘home made’ because at El Sol we make as much as possible in house, even our own fajita bread is made fresh daily.

See you soon at El Sol, where else?

Summer In The Gambia

In the Gambia the summer season in often referred to as the ‘off’ season, because of the decline  in the number of tourists coming to visit us during the warmest months.

Nevertheless, the beauty of our tiny country remains unaltered. Actually, due to the rains the landscape all around becomes amazingly lush and green.

At El Sol, after a short break to recharge our battery, we are now back to business and we will be open every day as usual, except that – untill the restarting of the tourist season in October – we will be now closed on Monday.



Have you tried Gusto?

23844441_1554506757965648_1849912643198340000_n this is Gusto restaurant

Gusto is our new restaurant, located just next door to El Sol. This is an Italian restaurant serving typical Italian dishes slightly revised by the modern touch and the creativity of Italian chef and co-owner Emiliano. We offer a selection of starters, main courses, and an extensive choice of freshly prepared pasta dishes and pizzas – from our outdoor wood fired oven. Being under the same management, at Gusto you can surely expect just the same quality and service that we provide at El Sol!
