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.

    The waitor didn't know what tge dishes were. Lack of gluten free options.

    we fairly often visit Bordeaux quay due to its location. On this occasion We met friends had an enjoyable evening but found the menu choice a bit disappointing. One of us found the steak really over salted. For a Saturday night it was very quiet and whilst the individual servers were pleasant the service was a bit disorganised

  • (((** 14 June 2017 by Nick B from Bristol

    Service was attentive without being annoying. Bread was stale and could at least have been warmed. Mussels starter was excellent. Poach hens egg starter was hard boiled not runny. Fish and chips - fish was a little dry and overcooked. Steak and other mains were liked by the rest of my party. Desserts (panacotta & browni) and coffee were good

    Not a great experience sadly. Our visit started off badly with our booking not being recognised. It wasn't busy so we 'found ourselves' a table. Service was disinterested and slow. Orders were not correctly delivered. Food was 'okay but not great'; chips were undercooked. Overall a disappointing visit especially as it was a birthday meal.

    Very disappointed - This used to be my favourite restaurant but on this occasion it was very poor food. We were given a brunch menu - more pub grub than restaurant no starter. I had a burger which was dry, with a stale bread bun & very limited salad.
    Bath Gem was served in a german beer glass

    Staff were excellent as always in terms of getting us seated and attending the table. However they did not offer a choice of eggs with our breakfasts. My mussels were plentiful and really nicely cooked but the sauce was bland and tasteless. Our table was too close to the next table so we moved it ourselves. One recurring problem is that the staff tend to stand too close to us when they are attending the nearby tables often we get a back in our faces almost. The layout of the tables and the waiting training really needs improvement

    Good food, atmosphere and service.

    Very nice greeting, and food was good, but the flat whites were weak and service from staff was rather rushed.

    The waiting staff were excellent. However the food was not the best especially the mussels most of which I left.
