We choose from the set menu which although small had a good choice. My other half had three courses and I had... More

I met with a business colleague at this modern venue with a perfect aspect over the river. As I was late I could see my host so was not shown to my table and am unable to comment about the welcome. Although the service was slightly on the slow side, we were well looked after and my cod was cooked... More

We decided to try this river side restaurant for lunch, and were very impressed by the overall standards. The restaurant was stylish, attractive with thoughtful interior design, clean, and with great views of the river. We had the set lunch menu and thought it fantastic value for money, with well presented, imaginative but appetizing, high-quality food, and properly chilled white... More

To be honest this review is long overdue as my partner and I have been coming here regularly (once a month at least) for the last 10 years and it never fails to deliver good quality food or service. In the summer whether upstairs in the restaurant or downstairs where the bar and Kitchen is with it's outside dining area... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel reception and we didn't have very high hopes. When we arrived we were welcomed to the top floor terrace with a stunning view over river. The staff was extremely courteous and friendly throughout the whole visit and the most important thing, the food was simply amazing. Every course hit the mark... More

I've used this restaurant on a number of occasions, and every time it has been excellent. The menu is interesting, well thought through and well executed, and the staff are knowledgable and extremely friendly. This is definitely my "go to" restaurant in Bristol, and based on my experiences there I would recommend it highly.

This is our second week in a row eating at the Riverstation. Last week we had our wedding anniversary meal upstairs in the restaurant which was lovely; on Saturday might my wife and I ate in the café downstairs. This place is superb and beats the other restaurants close by hand-down. The staff are so attentive (and Cilla is particularly... More

Visited friends in Bristol for a bit of a birthday treat, and they recommended the Riverstation as somewhere we could go for a celebration. The food was decent, I wouldn't say out of this world, and the service was great, especially after they had a mix up with my order. Mistakes happen, but it's how they are fixed that's more... More
