Always the very best food and service. Good art on the walls and beautiful flowers. The deli downstairs is a firm family favourite, the kids food is great and the atmosphere is lovely too. Love love River Station! X

Visited for family birthday and despite being packed the service was quick and efficient and writer took time to explain menu- there were 6/7 items on the menu none of us had heard of so he found out what they were for us and helped us make a choice. We had gazpacho, pate and tune starters followed by Moroccan lamb... More

My favourite in Bristol, if not the world. Too full from previous night's dinner party to have the chips - always awesome - so had a starter instead. And the bread. Very expensive at £3.50 for six slices but I couldn't bear to leave any so I took it home to have for breakfast given it was gorgeous as well... More

Today is my 30th birthday. After much searching me and my wife decided to visit this restaurant.

No bother I thought, i'm sure we'll have a lovely... More

I visit Riverstation regularly with my girlfriend. The food is amazing and the service is brilliant. It is a very romantic resturant and the pirces arent too high for the quality and amount of food you get. Have been here about 5 times and love it every time.
