Went to solace today with family. Must say, the seafood chowder is the best I have ever had! So much FRESH ingredients and a great price. Will be returning definitely. Thank you, from a fellow local :)

Wonderful food, great service and atmosphere, fabulous find after wondering around the streets of Rotorua not really knowing what we were looking for. Dinner menu catered to a variety of tastes and budgets and overall I was really impressed by the presentation and general warmth the place and the food had. Service was spectacular and our waiter for the evening was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions my friend and I had, and was just a joy to be served by. Would gladly return to this little gem when in New Zealand again and would recommend it highly if you want good food that's not too expensive and satisfying all in one. :)

Solace restaurant has an amazing gluten Free menu and their staff go out of their way to ensure your needs are met.

Lovely, Friendly Staff, wonderful atmosphere & great food at great prices. I didn't find the prices too excessive at all in fact cheaper than others around it and great value for money.

Totally recommend & is my new "Fave" place to eat.....
