Went for lunch with 7 others and the manager could not have been more helpful and efficient. Food was expertly cooked although the choice was very limited. The gooseberry fool was to die for and there were only clean plates at the end of each course.

We mostly had the £9.99 lunch deal. The onglet steak for the main course was delicious, tender and full of flavour, nice wine at a reasonable price

loved the food, that was 5 star and we are believers in you pay for what you get, Staff were great although a little under dressed for a Saturday night. One seemingly higher ranking member had shoddy trainers on!! Prices were on the higher end, which we didnt mnd, but the boring simplistic decor let it down heavily for us.... More

This is one of my favourites restaurants in Bristol. The food they serve is really interesting and different. There is a nice atmosphere and the staff are friendly.

Daily change of menu, can order more as you go. Fantastic wine seletion. Fantastic sevice. Amazingly scrummy food. Lovely evening atmosphere. What else could you want? We left planning when we would go next (always a good sign). We left very happy.

Tapas has become main stream. I have eaten too many patatas bravas and grilled chorizo. So Flinty Red is the ideal, what you get is tapas style food, with interest, freshness and variety. The variety is the key, daily changing dishes, which can be ordered as small plates or larger main course plates. I have tried both options and much... More

Food was good, but not really good, and was overpriced for what you got. Shame. Will try again in another season!

We'd booked a table midweek and the restaurant was full. Seems it's a favourite of the Mayor!! This place came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Don't go if you're wedded to meat and two veg. This is all about flavour and taste combinations. The food was delicious. We ordered six small plates between the two of us and that... More

Small but nice place on the fringe of funky Bristol. If wine is your thing this is probably 10/10 but just based on the food it is really good. The small plates mean you can sample plenty of options without over indulging, Usually I cringe at over described food and wine but here they don't even give a hint but... More
