This Tex-Mex restaurant and bar remains a popular spot on Clapham High Street. DJs bring upbeat party tunes every Friday and Saturday night, with revellers often taking advantage of the heated street-side outdoor area.

The food menu comprises recognisable Tex-Mex dishes ranging from burritos, enchiladas and pollo pueblo to sizzling fajitas, house burgers and ribs, steaks and sandwiches from the mesquite grill. Tortilla chips with dips and traditional nachos are also on offer.

The drinks list is heavy on the tequila, with 13 different varieties on offer. It's used in many of the cocktails too, with a range of margaritas alongside classic concoctions such as  whiskey sours, martinis and spiced mojitos. Four Mexican beers sit alongside Spanish Cuesquena and four varieties of Rekorderlig cider. A short wine list is available, too.

I am only familiar with Cafe Sol as a bar stroke club (club used in loosest sense) - so the idea of eating here seems really obscure, if not a little grim. Anyway, once you have eaten elsewhere in one of Clapham finer eateries, if you fancy having a little dance to some of the cheesiest happy hardcore chart music then this is the place for you. Everyone is always in the greatest spirits in this place so it's really hard not to immerse yourself in this utter cringe-fest of a dance floor - way better than its neighbour Infernos. Just don't arrive after 12pm because the £10 entry fee is not worth it.

Utter disaster! The tiny margaritas were WAY overpriced and largely ice. The baked potato was clearly cooked in a microwave with a rock hard bottom. The sole had been cooked to death and was in tiny pieces that were stringy and tough - what a waste!! And the punters belonged in a zoo!!

Utter disaster! Tiny Margaritas were largely ice & WAY over-priced. The sole had the soul cooked out of it, so that it fell apart on the plate; tough & stringy! The baked potato had clearly been cooked in the microwave with the base completely solid & again tough! And the punters belonged in a zoo!
