Whether you live in the area or are visiting for a short break, we’ve selected 10 of the best restaurants in Bristol you simply have to try.
Situated in the Cotham area on the outskirts of the city centre, Bulrush serves up some of the highest quality fine dining in Bristol. With a focus on organic and foraged seasonal ingredients, this inventive restaurant produces dishes with impeccable presentation and has been awarded a Michelin star for its troubles.
Coronation Curry House
Rated among the very best restaurants Bristol has to offer by previous diners, this curry house on the southern bank of the River Avon does exactly what it says on the tin. Tasty food, welcoming staff and great service complement the array of classics and chef’s specials on the menu.
The place to go for original, Michelin-starred fine dining with a twist, the spectacular creativity of the food at Casamia lies in stark contrast to the dark, brooding decor and somewhat loud and relentless music. You can’t choose what to eat here, with the concept seeing every diner receiving each dish at the same time as the 20 or so courses are served.
Another one of the top-rated restaurants in Bristol, Mugshot is the place to go for a succulent steak. With a design narrative based around prohibition times, there’s a unique atmosphere to go along with the expertly cooked prime cuts.
Housed within the historic Friary Building, this destination restaurant is popular for its large portions of German and other central European dishes. Think schnitzels, strudels and sausages, excellent German beers and a particularly lively experience during Oktoberfest.
Moving down to southern Europe yet only a mile across town, this buzzing tapas restaurant is a must if you love sharing small Spanish plates. Make your way through the classics while sipping Spanish wines and sherry tapped directly from a cask, as you discover why Paco Tapas has been granted a Michelin star for its quality fare.
Continuing on our European adventure, Moltobuono is a popular and highly-rated Italian restaurant along Park Street. Known for its top-notch pizza and pasta, there’s also a great selection of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options on the menu.
If you’re looking for somewhere with an even more extensive choice of vegetarian dishes, Root is for you. Locally-sourced produce from small, independent suppliers forms the backbone of small plates where the veggies are the star, with modern, inventive techniques bringing the menu to life in quite stunning fashion.
Found in Stokes Croft just a stone’s throw from the Bearpit, this restaurant has a great reputation not only for its flavoursome Caribbean cuisine, but also for its vibrant atmosphere. Expect the rum punch to flow as reggae music floats on the air.
Another restaurant featured in the
Michelin Guide, Tare sits within a block of shipping containers cleverly
converted to play host to a range of independent businesses. Small with a
capacity of just 18, you’ll usually need to book in advance on account of this
eatery’s lofty reputation for creative, exciting cooking.
