Our group of 4 had a great time. We were there for a Queen's feast dinner. I had the Cuban rice ... and it was great. The Plantain Nachos were not my favorite though. They were mostly Plantain and for me ... needed more of the other "stuff" ... which would have added the flavor that was lacking. The Key Lime pie was good. Aiden ... our server was fabulous. She had a great personality and took care of our every need. Gabriel (love the name) the manager, came by our table and greeted us ... what a nice guy. We will definitely go back ... the restaurant has a super atmosphere.
The food, the drinks, the service - everything about our recent visit was great! They were busy for restaurant week but everything ran smoothly, food came out quick and hot. Some of us ordered from the restaurant week menu and others ordered from their regular menu but everything tasted amazing. We will definitely be back!
Not sure what made me wait so long to give Calle Sol a try but looking back I made a huge mistake. This place is amazing! Some truly Cuban vibes with tastes and smells you cannot find any other place in Charlotte. Portions are large, fresh and quickly prepared. For years someone has made attempt a to stay in the former Penguin location without success, but I believe that Calle Sol will be there for a long time to come.
DROP WHATEVER YOU ARE DOING AND MAKE A RESERVATION HERE! :) My favorite restaurant of all time is The Columbia in St Augustine Florida. When a customer of mine told me about Calle Sol (many of the menu items were inspired by The Columbia) .. I knew I wanted to check it out. I cant even begin to describe in words how amazing this restaurant is. Even better then The Columbia. The pork, ceviche, rice, beans, plantains, Spanish bean soup, 1205 salad were out of this WORLD. We cant wait to go back & we live 50 minutes away!
This was my first visit to Calle Sol, but I had high expectations since the owner has other great restaurants. I was not let down! The food was excellent and the server was friendly (and helpful with guidance). I can't wait to go back to try something else!
