Everything about our visit was fantastic. The food and drink were delicious, the staff were lovely - very helpful and attentive. It's a lovely setting for a meal. We were visiting for the first time for our wedding anniversary and will definitely be back - thank you!

Went for afternoon tea and it was as near perfect as could be. Great location, lovely staff and really wonderful food. Everything was fresh and nearly everything was utterly divine! Only teeny tiny flaws were coffee walnut cake a little dry and peach (?) parfait somewhat bland, but all the other treats more than made up for these fussy points!

Lovely light spacious restaurant with views over the Harbourside. We requested a table by the window and were lucky enough to get one. There is a good choice of food to suit most tastes I had the scallops and the lamb and my husband had the pate and the seafood, all excellent. The staff are very welcoming and efficient. All in all a great evening I am sure we will return.

My sister and I found this restaurant recommended on the web and having tried it once, go each time we meet up in Bristol. Excellent food - varied menu - lovely surroundings and excellent service.

All aspects of our visit were perfect for us. The welcome, service, food, location, made it a very pleasurable experence. I particularly liked how light and airy the restaurant was with the whole glass surrounds which also enabled lovely views of the whole harbour area. The staff were very friendly, smartly dressed and attentive. The restaurant was high spec and very good value for money and overall it was the culinary highlight of my wifes special birthday celebration weekend. Thank you to all.

Waiter was good and the food was good, but the food was very slow to arrive and the restaurant was mostly empty. (We had to rush our main course to get to the theatre on time.) It was also too hot in the restaurant [I was sweating]: it is mainly glass and it was a sunny evening - but surely this should be dealt with using proper air conditioning? So, 5 stars for the waiting staff; 2 stars for the slow food delivery

A wonderful experience. The venue , view and food was faultless . My only regret was that we’re staying in another hotel . Brilliant, thank you for a great night . R
