The tapas craze has swept the world, even hitting Cancun hard. At El Sol Tapas & Restaurant you can enjoy a new take on the food fade, while sipping on award winning wine and experiencing excellent service.

El Sol Tapas & Restaurant

El Sol Tapas & Restaurant has brought the concept of tapas to a whole new level by creating a menu of Mediterranean favorites with a pre-Hispanic Mexican twist made from fresh, local ingredients that can be shared and sampled. Pair each dish with a glass from the award winning wine cellar.

The menu features many good options, including tapas, and the influence of flavors can be intriguingly varied, including elements of both Mediterranean and Mexican cuisines. As far as the style of dining and food goes, the setting is informal. This dining option is on the table during dinner only, so plan ahead to catch their brief service.


Rustic yet elegant, El Sol Tapas & Restaurant is truly unique.
