The El Sol Mexican Restaurant in Gambia is nestled just away from the heart of Kololi Resort in a unique building which is aptly named the Village Complex. It is among the top diners in the country and has earned rave reviews from some of its former and current guests for its great cuisine. Indeed the food and waiter service is so good that in April 2010 it won the esteemed title of the number 1 restaurant in The Gambia and has even received a Certificate of Excellence from the travel site TripAdvisor.

El Sol has a relaxing, serene ambience decorated in hot orange and tan colours while the splendid decor is of first class without compromise. The walls are decorated in fabulous wooden artwork and splashes of abstract lines and circles. The dining chairs are comfortable with cushioned high backs; there are soft, wide sofas for those wanting to enjoy a cocktail. Near sunset you might want to eat just outside on their wooden seating with wide sunshades to protect you from the early evening sun.

The bar itself is a professional outfit with its fully stocked shelves of well known alcoholic drinks such as lager and spirits as well as some famous wines from around the world. You can also order a nice, refreshing cocktail.

The Food:
There is something for everyone at El Sol especially those who prefer something less spicy than their mainly Mexican cuisine. For example, there is the spaghetti with shrimps in white wine and tomato sauce.  Alternatively, try the wonderful tapas, lemon chicken salad, fresh muscles, grilled tuna or Ladyfish with seafood sauce, Gazpacho, home cooked crab ravioli and stuffed chilies, hot tortillas with cheese and fresh chillies, grilled lamb chops with a peas and mint puree. A word of warning: highly addictive, generous portions!

For dessert try their wonderful chocolate and blackberry  muffin, a fresh fruit tartlet and delicious vanilla ice cream.

And finally you can finish the evening meal with a cup of freshly made Irish coffee or Espresso.
