High ceilings, prominent yet minimal light fixtures, neutral woven wicker platters artfully hung on the wall, beige and gold accents and a real live olive tree in the middle of the restaurant. All of the things you notice when you’re entering Solia suggest a Mediterranean villa on the coast, or a cozy village plaza.
Solia is a Mediterranean restaurant, drawing from French, Spanish, Turkish, Italian, Levantine and North African influences. Instead of focusing on a single culinary tradition, they have instead chosen to assimilate all of them without fusing any of them into a franken-cuisine. The menu selections flow perfectly together, showcasing a part of our history where culinary traditions are constantly shared amongst the Mediterranean region and never isolated.
The main courses are a visual feast. The pictures do not lie, and every dish exactly fulfills its menu-visual’s promise.
Solia is an immensely satisfying experience. They respect the tradition and heritage of all of the dishes brought together under their roof. And perfected the technical aspects of cooking all of the dishes and have stayed true to their authenticity. Yet, they have managed to infuse their own flavor and aesthetic to it all.
Solia is located in the Avenues Phase IV, for more information follow them on Instagram @soliakw.
