Had a wonderful dinner at Solace. All the dishes were excellent, great service and nice well-priced wines. Please put the fillet steak that was on the specials board onto your permanent menu, so I can have it again! Well done Solace team, it's a little...ripper of a restaurant.More

I felt like Alice stumbling into the most amazing restaurant wonderland, the food was unbelievable and the cocktails were 10/10 . It’s the northern beaches biggest little secret 🤫. Incredible vibe and the bar tender and waiters were so attentive!!! Couldn’t recommend more, so happy...we gave this place a shot!!More

I had seen the beautiful photos up on the Solace Instagram page before heading over so I knew I was in for a treat, and I was seriously blown away. The atmosphere is incredible, with the owners chatting with everyone and checking in on how...your meal is going. I was lucky enough to book in on a day where they had live music and it just added to the happy and relaxing vibe. The menu had so many yummy dishes to offer, and you definitely can't go past what's on the specials board! If you can, try the middle eastern dips and the sticky pork ribs, I can't think of any ribs I've loved more. And I seriously can't praise the cocktails highly enough, so many options to choose from with classics and signatures galore. I'll be back for sure!More

A very relaxed vibe with incredible food and cocktails. I generally am not a seafood lover however wow! The scallops to start were incredible! Followed up by the snapper with pesto that quite literally melted in your mouth. I was here for the live music...which added to an already perfect atmosphere. A great way to switch off and indulge! I'll certainly be back!More

Lovely ambience in this tucked away restaurant. Easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it ... and we recommend you make the effort We shared pork belly entree ... very flavorful - if a bit dry... always a challenge with double or triple cooked....Calimari was tender and very good. The char-grilled Black Angus fillet steak was cooked to perfection ... fabulous. And shared churros for dessert were excellent! Service was attentive and personable ... happy birthday JohnieMore

We had the pleasure of dining at Solace again last night. It was a windy/raining evening but this didn't effect the lovely warmth and ambience offered by Solace. The electric heaters kept us warm as toast! We started with one of Solace's signature cocktails 'Camomile...sour' which was delicious and delivered in a timely manner (amazing considering it was happy hour), we even managed to get a second one in just in time. We enjoyed shared entree's, mains and shared desserts from the specials menu which was recommended, they certainly didn't disappoint. The new chef Scott, has lifted the bar and he certainly doesn't disappoint. Looking forward to seeing what Solace has to offer with the longer days and warmer nights of the summer months. Thanks again Solace, we will be back again :)More

Delish cocktails and seriously scrumptious 'bar' food that was so much more. The calamari was possibly the best in years. The dips offered a multitude of flavours and textures and we couldn't bear to waste a scrap. Naughty choccy churros finished the meal. Adventurous cocktails...and great wines too. Even the pouring rain didn't let down the great Avalon laid back, beach vibe and we were dry and cozy under cover. We loved being able to book too. Our only complaint? It's not open every night. Well done Tom and Oli, you have a great thing going and we're looking forward to next time.More

I’ve been to Solace a couple of times in the past couple of months and cannot wait to go back. The Cocktails are incredible (The Chamomile Sour is as pretty as it is delicious) and the Margaritas are 5 star. The food is equally as...delicious - the zucchini flower/flat bread platter is the perfect thing to pick at over a drink, as is the salt & pepper squid. The atmosphere is perfectly cosy, even in the middle of winter (a good sprinkling of fairy lights, heat lamps and incense burning), and the $10 happy hour cocktails are just the icing on the cake. A top notch new local.More
