A solstice divides up the seasons. It represents the perfect balance in many aspects, a time to reset. It marks the turn between seasons and is celebrated everywhere. In some cultures through music, some through rituals, some through purification ceremonies and awakenings. We celebrate it through food. Seasonal and perfectly balanced dishes are at the center of the offering, crafted around the idea of sharing and fuelling the souls of our diners.
Seasonal small plates sourced from the British coastline.

Facing the Thames lies a riverside sanctuary in the heart of the City of London. We come to Solstice to spend a moment of conviviality, enjoying every last glance of sunset around good dishes and creative house-made cocktails carefully sourced with seasonality by our chef. Our cuisine is based on quality products and respects the rhythm of the seasons.

The kitchen service is closed from 9.30pm during week days and from 4.30pm on Sunday.

    This place will, I hope, stay delightful: the menu was, frankly, conceived and delivered by at least one genius, and delivered on every single dish we tried- and the portions weren't mean, so sadly we couldn't justify as many dishes as we were tempted by. Incredibly good value anywhere, but especially in a quiet, secret corner, with a host who could not have been more personable and responsive. What a brilliant find.

    A small menu but with very tasty dishes and cocktails in a very comfortable set up along the Thames with a great view of the Globe, Tate Modern etc. Only criticism is that the pineapple dessert was on the sickly sweet side - could have used something to balance it out.

    Nacho was a wonderful server and had a great sense of humour! We had a lovely meal at Soltice and Nacho really bent over backwards to help us with our very quirky dietary requirements (Vegetarian, Gluten Free and Lactose Free & no Onion / Garlic). I would very much recommend the setting too which is low key but has a wonderful view of the Thames. Thanks for making our evening very enjoyable!

    Food was so so but the service was awful. We were asked to hurry up to leave when the restaurant was open for another 40 mins, our plates were taken away before we even finished eating - I wanted another drink but that made me just leave it. Wouldn’t have minded if this was a 40 quid dinner but we paid 134 pounds! Pretty disgusted with the service we received

    Arancini: some of the best we ever had Shrimps: perfectly spicy Chicken: very tasty Soup: awkward to share, tasted good, maybe the sage was a little too much in quantity Pork: well cooked, olive oil doesn’t add much to the mash, baby gem could do with some freshness/acidity/crunch Salad: great mackerel: nice Nordic style dish desserts: decent, the pineapple had a little too much coriander and too much caramel compared to ice cream. Panna cotta: great and fresh Mousse: nice and classic And this is being very critical of everything. It was all very good, just small details for consideration. One thing to consider is the music played at 10.30pm. It did not fit with the ambience and it was too loud and hardcore for our liking. So a great 9/10, food was delicious, service was very friendly and attentive from the young lad. Thanks for a great night!

    SO GREAT. Nice selection of vegetarian courses. I took my partner out for dinner for his birthday. For 3 sharing dishes (so kind of starter and main) and 4 beers and a desert (which we shared) it was 80-90 pounds with a 12.5% tip. I think really reasonable price considering the place is so fancy. I love the decor and the ambiance. Food was good sized portions and super nice.

    The portions were a bit small (we were told that) but thought it would be bigger for the price. Excellent location with view of the Millennium Bridge and the Tate. Couldn't see the Thames though. Excellent service from the two people that served us. Great ambience and quite cosy.

    Fantastic experience! Staff were friendly and helpful, even the guy serving us and it was his first day! The food came out timely and was divine. Had the jalapeño infused mezcal cocktail which was a great accompaniment to the meal. Atmosphere was very relaxing as well, open space with green plants dotted around. They clearly take pride in every aspect of the business. Well done, added to my favourites. :)

    Food and location/views are great (with good options for vegetarians). Team were very polite and friendly and helpful on recommendations. The atmosphere is quite casual/relaxed and worked well for a mid-week catch up with friends. Only issue we had upon arrival was that the team seemed a bit understaffed. There was only one person waiting on the tables and apparently a few diners arrived at the same time so there was a bit of a wait to get our order. The food and service thereafter though were excellent.
