We visit Cosmo to celebrate the retirement of a work colleague. Having heard good things about the restaurant we were certainly expecting better things than what we actually experienced. Maybe it's a time of day thing but certainly by 8.30pm a great deal of the dishes had passed their best and were looking a bit tired. Having read some of... More

After reading the recent reviews I was expecting the worst, but it was everything I wanted and more. Plenty of space, excellent quick service, food good to excellent and quickly replenished. For less than £10.00 I had as much as I wanted and two drinks, plenty of choice of desserts as well and plates cleared as soon as they were... More

This used to be the best place to eat in Bristol bar none! Went for a meal with my family 3 months ago and the food was less than desirable. As a fair person I held back from leaving a review at the time as felt it might just have been an off day. Having visited again today I felt... More

This restaurant has a good range of food which always looks appetising and freshly cooked. However, my latest visit made my friend and I ill with nothing obvious being eaten between us. The gents toilets were a disgrace with wet floors, peeling wallpaper and faeces around the toilet seats and even on the wall where someone else had possibly also... More

For an all you can eat I was very surprised, the food was tasty with plenty of choice. I loved the "live" cooking stations where you could stand and watch your food being cooked, the deserts were disappointing but after several dishes of the very nice main courses I don't really think that matters! Can't wait for my next visit.

The atmosphere here is very relaxed you don't feel rushed. There is so much choice, you need to be very hungry! The food is very tasty but with a lot of the dishes you can tell the food is of poor quality such as the cakes (they're very deceiving, they look delicious and creamy but they're dry and not tasty...

It's always good here, if your looking for top standard food then obviously you wouldn't go to a buffet style restaurant, it is the best buffet restaurant in Bristol though. Chinese/Thai food I find is the best food in there. Could elaborate on the Indian as there are no spicy dishes all mild. Most food is piping hot which is... More

Miserable+not helpful staff. At 6pm the evening food should not be dry+old...it only opens at 5.30. Claiming that they are 'very busy' does not excuse unhelpful staff. Come on Cosmos...you used to be fab value!
