Dundee’s Original Tapas Bar

Sol y Sombra has been one of Dundee’s favourite tapas bars since it opened in 2011. Born out of a childhood love for holidaying in Spain and Spanish food, Joanna and Phil have created a menu of fresh, authentic and simple tapas. The aim is to recreate the atmosphere of a typical Spanish family meal, requiring everyone to share and enjoy the meal as one.
Our chefs use the morning’s freshly delivered ingredients to decide which dishes will be served that day. We can cater to all dietary requirements and pride ourselves in offering truly delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes. Our lunch set menu is £19.50 per person and dinner is £24.50 per person (not including drinks and desserts).
Alongside our restaurant upstairs, we also have a wonderful bar boasting a huge range of gins, beers, wines, spirits and cocktails. Our bar staff are experts in what we have to offer and will help you find the perfect drink. 
Our vouchers are very popular, and the perfect gift for any occasion. They can be purchased online or in the restaurant. If you’d like to put a smile on someone’s face with a Sol y Sombra gift voucher please click here.
