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.

  • (((** 22 May 2017 by Yvon Guest from Bristol

    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

    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.

    It was our first time but we were with friends who had been there before and said it had gone downhill. The staff were very friendly and the service was fine but the food was mediocre.

    I visited with my family after completing the Bristol 10k race. We all had brunch and it was delicious.

    Overall BQ is a great place with a good atmosphere, nice decor and the food was tasty and well presented. The service however did not do it justice. If it was more polished then the overall experience would have been really very good.

    Rather overpriced we thought and a fairly limited menu. We sat outside but there was no service there so had to go inside to order. The quality of the food was ok but uninspired. A 'voluntary' 12.5% service charge was added which really annoys us. Service charge should be completely at the discretion of the diner and there should be a statement on the menu and bill as to where it goes. We only had one course so the service was minimal and the service charge excessive.

    Food quality and choice excellent. Service haphazard - no waiter seemed to have responsibility for our table and we had to remind staff of missed items.

    We enjoyed dining here, food was great, service was very good. The waiter recommended an excellent wine, which is always the sign of a good restaurant.
