SOL Cocina in Newport Beach is by far one of my most favorite restaurants in Orange County. It combines a great atmosphere with delicious food. Located on the famed 'PCH' right next to the water, SOL is as comfortable as it is classy - with iron rod decorations, soft lighting and rich colors.
The ambiance not the only great thing about SOL, the food is outstanding. My favorite menu item is the lobster and shrimp tacos, which come with a delicious melted butter and lime combo. The seafood is always fresh and is plated with a smaller tortilla so you feel a balance between the protein and carbs.
To top it off, you have to try the cucumber jalapeno margarita. It's refreshing and spicy; you'll have three before the meal even arrives!
All in all, SOL is an awesome restaurant that I highly recommend. It's a great place to have a group dinner or just check out with a friend/ significant other.
