Visited midday on a saturday, with the 'Lunch' menu advertised outside. Inside, the choice seemed to be just the full evening menu, over the top for a light lunch, plus the option of a couple of 'specials', mainly salads and panini. Paninis OK, but nothing to enthuse over. Debbie's water had dust particles in the glass, so was exchanged. We've... More

Visited Janito's last week and had a most wonderful meal. Had not eaten here for a couple of years and was probably the best meal I have ever eaten in Knowle. Two nights before I ate at a well known fish restaurant in Knowle. The meal was average and over priced. Janito's ticked every box. Nicely attentive staff, freshly cooked... More

Visited with a large family group. Although not massive, the selection is very varied and had something for everyone's taste. The food was fantastic throughout the 3 course meal - my personal favourite being the pan roasted duck breast in redcurrant sauce. Possibly one of the tastiest dishes I have ever had! It was also nice to see that the... More

We came to eat here twice in six days. very good for my 5 year old grandson. Also couples and small groups. Starters were excellent and as so often better than the main courses. One very large complaint here and in other restaurants in UK Chips, the humble potato. Why oh Why are meals spoilt by frozen chips called Rustic... More

Visited my parents today from Bristol for lunch as an Easter treat, this was a 'gem' of a place. Excellent choice on the menu & on the special board. Great wine & children's menu. Thank you Janitos x
