A delightful little Bistro with an interesting limited(wisely) menu.Absolutely delicious and I loved the idea of a 'small plate' choice.Braised oxcheek starter was like eating savoury silk.Friendly knowledgeable staff.Well done Flinty Red.

I took a friend here for her birthday and we had a really good meal. The staff were very pleasant too and we were very impressed, especially by the pigeon breasts and fennel.

i came here unintentionally with my father, and what a great surprise! the food was so delicious. i'm always worried about going to new places without researching them first as i'm a very fussy veggie, but this was really some of the best food i've eaten out. the deep-fried chickpea cubes and artichoke ravioli were fantastic. it's a bit pricey...

Had lunch here today with an old chum. We were looking for somewhere interesting around Clifton and we certainly found it here. Our long, lingering lunch included pied du mouton mushroom, mussels, braised octopus, twice cooked kid, a couple of great desserts and a number of super wines by the carafe. And of course some lovely Armagnacs. Highly recommended!

We had a good evening at flinty red and the food was good. However for 40 pounds per head it was disappointing to leave hungry. There were no carbohydrates served with the mains - we got four large prawns for £15 - and though we ordered another plate of gnocchi to supplement it, it was not great value for the... More

My last visit to Flinty Red, the Cotham Hill branch, had been disappointing, due largely to poor service: see my review below, "An Off Day". So I was very happy to see that on my next visit, to their outpost at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, that they were right back on song. The service was welcoming, enthusiastic and very... More

We took my parents here, it was a bit of a risk as they're quite conservative but they loved it. The service was excellent and always with a smile & the food was delicious. The premise is slightly different, it can be 'tapas' like or you can have your own meal. We mixed it up, having shared starters and our... More

Visited Flinty Red last night with 2 friends and more than pleasantly surprised. The service from the staff was fun and excellent. Great information given about the food and various wine choices and how they might pair. We elected to eat tapas style so we could try the widest selection. Everything was delicious, especially of note were roasted kid with... More

An unusual and intriguing menu, all superbly cooked. We chose to have several small portions and share them tapas style. The wine was excellent and very good value. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and happy to explain anything that we did not recognise. All in all a great evening.
