Well satisfied customer!

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... read more

Visited here twice before and forgot how delicious the food was. Warm friendly welcome, good choice of wines and beers. Excellent choice of menu, including specials. Looking forward to going again.

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

It’s a while since we enjoyed lunch at this small restaurant and we were not disappointed on our return. My gourmet burger topped with bacon and cheese served with chips was excellent. The meat was succulent and cooked to perfection. The BLT from the specials menu also looked good. The service was attentive throughout. We won’t leave it as long... More

Great varied menu - hard to pick. We both had starter and main and both were fantastic. The service is second to none, pleasant friendly efficient staff. This is our second visit to this restaurant and would highly recommend.

Been here twice now, and both times I was very impressed. The range of the menu is good without being overwhelming, and the service was genuinely friendly. Will definitely go again at some point...in fact, we discovered this place after giving up on the nearby Loch Fyne!
