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 were very friendly. Food a little disappointing as the chips were not cooked well and were hard and my bread and butter pudding had to be sent back because it was cold. We had finished out coffee by the time it arrived back. It was lovely but wasn't really wanting it by the time it came.
    However the staff reacted well and were very apologetic.
    Overall Bordeaux quay is one of our favourite places to eat

    While my Wife had a very tasty haddock risotto on recommendation from our waiter,
    I found my fish and chips adequate in portion size but not particularly tasty. I also sent my
    beer back as it was obviously from the bottom of the barrel and past its best.
    Service was good and staff very polite and accommodating.

    I booked lunch, with a friend, and was given a window table, which I had requested. It would have been nicer if the table had been facing
    the window.
    The service was prompt, and the food hot. My vegetable tart was fresh and very nice.
    My friend had chosen the fish and chips, but said it lacked flavour, but looked very good.
    I would book again, perhaps for an evening meal, when we return to Bristol, in the summer. I liked the location.

    We've visited Bordeaux Quay before and enjoyed it so thought we'd return as it had been a while since we'd last been. We were a little disappointed - the service was slow (they did apologise as they had a large booking upstairs in their restaurant) and the food was nice but not mind blowing. They use local ingredients, which appeals to us but we won't be returning soon as it wasn't made memorable. One positive note was they do a lovely selection of local beers and would recommended the Twisted Oak.

    Great brunch

    Lovely food however big lack of atmosphere and bit odd to hear Christmas music in February!

    Visited for Breakfast. It was all splendid. Thank you.

    Food was very good, fish and chips is excellent. View very nice as long as you're next to a window at the front.

    Service was friendly, but not very attentive; I had to go and find someone to ask for the bill, and then go up to the counter to pay it, and they found the idea of two decaf and one normal coffees very complex. There is then an automatically added 12.5% service charge, which perhaps stops them feeling they need to make the effort.

    Nice bistro atmosphere, friendly service. Excellent nearby parking.
    A little cool when it's really freezing outside.
    Pork belly always excellent, fish/chips/mushy peas superior to a chippy's, vegetarian dishes excellent.
    We've grown fond of it – makes a nice evening after a Watershed film.

    room was cold and throughout our meal the waiters had to squeeze past my friend with all the food and dirty plates which meant she had to lean forward all the time. Choice on the menu was a little limited for us particularly the sweets and starters
