WOW! I feel so lucky we stumbled upon this place. We had a GREAT meat here. The Mahi Mahi (grilled and Al vino) were delicious and so was the lobster. Quick and attentive service. We will go back!

We have been eating at Sol y Mar for years and were so happy to see that they made it through the pandemic. We get takeouts at least every 4 days from Sol y Mar... The food is delicious and simple...

We ate here several times during our month in Potrero. Really a family place with some very good options. Nothing too fancy, just good home cooking, Ceviche is a stand out. Grilled chicken came with veggies and potatoes. Whole snapper and fish and chips were...just okay. Margaritas, however, are fine and service is top drawer. Definitely worth a stop and attracts a mixed clientele of expats, tourist and locals.More

This is one of our favorite stops while we are in the Potrero area. The sea bass kimberley is a must and we are happy they have kept it on their menu for the last 10 + years. It's soooo hard to try something else,...but all the food coming from the kitchen looks amazing. Can't wait to return!More

We ate at Sol y Mar numerous times during our visit. The food was always delicious and the staff very attentive. The prices are the most reasonable in Protrero Beach and we would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.

We eat at Sol y Mar frequently. The seafood is always fresh and the preparation is always delicious. In my opinion, they have the best fried shrimp around! The seabass Kimberly is a popular dish, and you can get it with mahi mahi if you...prefer. Also, you can ask for the Casanova sauce which had baby shrimp in a butter wine sauce. If Tres Leche is available, be sure and order it for dessert!More

We enjoyed a Xmas eve dinner here. The service was friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere relaxed. The local dishes, particularly the casados and the ceviche, were very good and fresh. Tables are spacious and overall I would say that seating is more comfortable than...at some other sodas. As in much of this area of CR, prices are moderate, not cheap.More
