Lovely quiet atmosphere. Attentive staff. Good food. Albeit we did have a problem with the delivery of an Irish coffee, no cream, which was eventually found. Very enjoyable fine dining experience

We like to sit by the window so that we can watch the river and life going on outside.

The restaurant is in a great location, very clean and inviting, all the staff were very polite and attentive. All the food we ordered was very good, the only complaint was with the samphire it was to woody so not eatable. I will recommend to all and when back in Bristol will visit again. Thank you for a great meal and great evening.

Nice-looking restaurant, part of the Bristol Hotel but with a separate entrance, and facing the Harbourside which looks good at night. Our meals were fine though service was rushed, e,g, we were given our starters before we had even finished some small appetisers, and the courses came too rapidly. My dessert wine was forgotten and we had to pay at the counter as no one came. But overall it was a good experience.
