Boasting stunning Harbourside views, The River Grille is known for its ever-changing seasonal menus, packed full of local ingredients and exciting flavours.

The River Grille menu is packed with local ingredients like lamb and pork belly from Nailsea, sustainably sourced fish from Brixham, and the West Country’s Cornish Blue, Yarg and Westcomb Cheddar that pack a serious punch on the cheese platter. Seasonal dishes see warming root vegetables sit alongside the likes of cod, butterbean and chorizo stews and hazelnut soufflé for dessert.

The light and airy dining area has striking light features and mahogany furniture, with large windows that allow diners to look out over the water. The River Grille Bar is complete with a glossy finish and quirky white grand piano.

At the Centre of the city, the River Grille Restaurant is a 10 minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station and right on the Narrow Quay Harbourside.

    Spacious, warm , friendly. Good variety and value on the menu for both breakfast lunch and evening meals.The lady in the bar did a special warm drink with whiskey honey and hot milk , super.The Chef doesn't over elaborate with ostentatious decoration. To my mind he and his team seem to concentrate on really good food quality very nicely seasoned and cooked.Hot food on hot plates . Nice selection of their own desserts ,cheese and super coffee served the way I like, hot, black ,strong and some single pouring cream.All the staff there were professional, but very courteous , and each had their own sense of humour which was very enjoyable. It was really a five star experience. However I don't like to automatically give five stars. My reason for that is that if we were all just giving five stars every time a small amount of complacency could creep in.That won't happen in the Bristol , but its always good to have something to strive for.Take a bow Bristol !!!.

    I booked a table for four for 5 pm and we chose from the a la carter and set menu. All the meals were cooked superbly and served hot, the service was good and attentive but not pushy. We enjoyed the meal very much, particularly the duck breast.

    we could not find the restaurant! - We parked in Queens Square and walked and walked, looking for you - No luck! Even asked inside other restaurants in the area and no-one could tell us where you were - no one we asked had heard of The River Grill - Pity!! ; We then were too late with out theatre booking at the Hippodrome looming, so we were forced to phone you and cancel ; Not good, But there you have it.

    Fantastic service, great gluten free food, good prices, no loud music, great location and again; wonderful service.
    I'll visit you again soon :-)

    Excellent choice for gluten free, fish in batter! . Loved the nice touches like snacks with drinks and biscuits with coffee. Sleep GB misunderstanding with our rather complicated requests but service excellent overall. Really good tender steak and delicious chicken livers. Eton mess disappointing though, all whipped cream.
