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 fueling 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. We welcome you Wednesday to Saturday from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m

Cute riverside restaurant with a bohemian vibe. We tried the London Restaurant Festival tasting menu. The majority of the food was delicious and "feel-good" yummy! Items I particularly enjoyed were the arancini balls and the pineapple dessert! I thought the chicken thighs were a bit over-cooked.

The food was delicious even the potatoes were cooked to perfection. My favourite was the linguini and prawns. Will definitely return.

Was amazing, the waitress was the best part of the night, the food the second. Nice and quiet and a great spot to grab dinner after a long day. Would highly recommend

Solstice is a great little restaurant with some great views. Lovely for an end of week dinner with live DJ playing a great mix of songs. Good for conversation and a really great waiter who made helpful recomendations. Must try Handmade Linguini with Datterini Tomatoes; Cured sea bass, chilli prawns and the slow raosted pineapple.

We were very impressed with the food, and the negroni! A very relaxed setting and just to repeat - the food was amazing. Smallish plates, which we shared between 2, with a lot of attention to detail in terms of how the flavours interacted. We had a bottle of rose which was very nice and I think the prices are extremely reasonable. Very happy to return.

Magical little spot, tucked in on the north bank of the Thames next to the wobbly bridge.
