Excellent atmosphere, service and food. A great New Years eve. Couldn't fault it

Overlooking Bristol harbour, Bordeaux Quay amalgamates restaurant, brasserie, deli and bakery and cookery school into one big foodie’s dream. Guests can enjoy beautiful harbourside views and al fresco terrace dining at this elegantly converted warehouse.

The Bordeaux Quay restaurant menu offers high-end, gourmet dining, from the beautiful twice baked Perl Las soufflé starter to the indulgent baked Alaska with salted caramel ice cream dessert. The brasserie, whilst more casual, exacts the same high standards in its classic moules-frites and slow-cooked lamb shank in red wine. Appropriately, there’s also a catch of the day as sourced by local Newlyn fishers.

Baking through the night to provide fresh sandwiches, bread and cakes, the deli and bakery is open throughout the day. The brasserie, too, is open all day and serves homemade muesli as well as full breakfasts and special weekend options. Bordeaux Quay’s restaurant also provides a light yet decadent 3-course Sunday lunch menu.

Bordeaux Quay restaurant is an unmissable landmark, just a 5-minute walk from Bristol Hippodrome.

    Staff friendly and reasonably attentive
    Negative points were - the fish and chips option was not available on a limited menu for Sunday lunch; for our party of 7, two received their food about 5 minutes before the others; the 12.5% optional service charge I find annoying but still paid it.

    Nice food, reasonable price, friendly service. Unfortunately very cold though, we had to eat wearing our coats.

    Good location and plenty of space for prams. Menu very limited, basically burgers or fish and chips - not what we were expecting and not what we'd seen on the website. Pricey too for what it was. Overall pretty disappointing.

    We had a great time at the Bordeaux Quay on NYE. The booking online was easy and the location was perfect. The food was best, and 5 course meant that we were really stuffed by the end of the last course. Everything was nicely presented and tasted good. Service was prompt. The only let-down was the wine, we chose the 2nd white wine from the list which was not really good with the food, maybe we should have stuck with familiar wines.
    Overall, the ambience was good and it was value for money.

    There was a slight mix up with our reservation however BD swiftly sorted this and we were were being served the menu we'd thought we booked! Could not fault neither the food or the service - both were phenomenal. Fab experience for NYE!

    I have eaten here on a number of occasions and then food and atmosphere has always been excellent. However the trip on Thursday was a little a disappointing. The restaurant was freezing so not so comfortable. The menu was there normal one but the tart I had was pretty boring with a rock hard base, meat one of the others in the party had was really fatty. Having said that the mushroom soup to start was excellent as was the chocolate nemesis for pudding. I think we just timed it badly after Christmas as the restaurant was really quiet. Service and wine were great!

    Really nice restaurant...relaxing atmosphere, although very quiet when we visited...a little cold too. Both main courses, belly pork and slow cooked beef, were well presented and really tasty. None of the starters really appealed so we had bread & oil from the nibbles section...lovely bread and my only criticism is that there could have been 2 or 3 different types of bread instead of just the one...but would go back, especially in the summer, when the view of the river and boats would be nice.
