The restaurant is a great addition to Dicky Beach. The food is very good. Lovely swordfish, great pork belly, tasty paella. We have been there twice in the last week. The first night was great but this time I didn’t give top stars because we felt rushed. It was advertised as 5pm till late but when we arrived just after 7 we were told the kitchen took last orders at 7.30. We ordered but felt really rushed which didn’t give a great feeling.

Limited dessert menu was disappointing. Three prawns on the salad seemed unbalanced. Great service

It was nice enough. But I didn’t think it was all the much better than what we got at the surf club, whilst being much more expensive.

Food and service was amazing as usual. It is our favorite place. The only thing I can complain about is that the food came out way too quickly and our whole dining experience was over in an hour .

An excellent restaurant for a girl's lunch. We had a wide variety of delicious meals to choose from and the Salt and Pepper squid was delightful. The service was prompt, but we didn't feel rushed. There was ample time for desert and coffee. Good value for money, as the quality was excellent. I will certainly be returning soon.

Well situated and most plates of food looked like very good portions. Our experience wasnt so great because:
*I left a vmail during lunch service asking for an extra person to be added to our table. Never heard back. They accepted an extra person upon our arrival but made it known it wasn't their preference as they had a busy night. Returning my call could have sorted this - as it was the third person sat (me) sat facing the wall for the night.
*We were seated at 6.45pm, and served our mains at 8pm. We didn't order entrees. At 7.30pm, the server brought out 3x baos unprompted (not ordered) saying that there was a mix up in the kitchen and would we like these which was a little confusing but nice. Two out of three guests could have these, the other was coeliac.
*Biggest disappointment of the evening was the paella (ordered on recommendation because it's usually quite good I'm told). It was full of pepper! Like the lid had fallen off when it was being seasoned it was so peppery! I could still taste a little of the flavour that it should have been, but the pepper overtook the dish (and I don't mind a little spice). The other two meals were plentiful and very tasty.

We had heard that this restaurant served small & expensive meals. That certainly was not our experience. Generous & delicious high quality food. Highly recommended.

My Mexican street tacos were super good, and that’s coming from an exAmerican, so quite picky about Mexican food. Side of roast veg was excellent.
My husband found his seafood paella a bit gluggy.

Sand and Sol has become our favourite restaurant. The food is first class and the menu is extensive. It is a family run restaurant and the service is provided in a friendly and efficient manner. The drinks menu has good variety and the Chardonnay in particular is delicious. In addition they make the best margaritas that we’ve had outside of Mexico!!🍸

All very good. My lamb was overdone so that is why I downgraded the food. However my husband's duck was excellent. Would definitely go back.

We travelled from Brisbane and I went here with my coeliac mum and she loved the variety of options. Loved it so much that I returned with my fiancé and we specifically traveled up from Brisbane just for this restaurant. Love the food and had a great night. Can’t wait to come back

I recommend booking so you don’t miss out.
A cute kookaburra flying around outside was a nice touch .

A pleasant surprise for our end of the sunny coast! Greeting with Bonhomie, we were attentively looked after without being hovered over.

Food was very enjoyable.
Only one downside to a great experience was the table water tasted of the frig!A simple filter would make our next experience even better. We will be back!
