Was in Bristol for the weekend, was after a nice Sunday breakfast, and I got it. Eggs Florentine went down a treat - eggs nicely poached, not too vinegary, nice bread, probably a little heavy handed with the Hollandaise but it was lovely Hollandaise. Coffee was decent - not the best, but very good - but the pastries were just... More

Visited this restaurant and was expecting great food and atmosphere after reading the reviews. However my expectations were exceeded and I would highly recommend visiting here!

The Riverstation is a great find. The bar down stairs was lovely, loads of chairs, nice drinks range, helpful staff. The view to outside it weren't dark, would be water and clinking boats. The food upstairs is literally faultless, fresh, well seasoned, good portion control and tasty. Staff were on hand, knew the menu, welcoming and friendly. The interior is... More

As regular visitors to the riverstation bar+kitchen we decided to meet friends for lunch in the restaurant. As always the food and wines were very good and our waitress was excellent (unfortunately we didn't ask her name). We sat by the windows with a view of the harbour and although it's only mid-January the sun streamed in. Our waitress asked... More

Taken here by a new business colleague quite late in the lunch shift and was treated to a lovely octopus based lunch and a nice glass of red. Staff left us in peace the whole time and we must have been there for two hours. Cant ask anymore of the place. Would be pleased to revisit.

We have eaten at Riverstation many times - socially and for business (they have an area with folding doors that can be closed off). The food is always excellent. Didn't give it 5 stars only because it lacks a bit of ambience.

Lovely clean and bright with lots of really tempting food on offer. I had the 'home made' soup which was really, really good and served with a big piece of bread and butter - very tasty and filling on a cold day. They catered for families as well.

Great service, wonderful staff and welcome and excellent view! Can you want anything else? I will return again and again as I just loved the welcome. All the team seemed pleased to see us and in the downstairs - not the posh bit - just having a leisurely coffee and brunch while reading the Sunday Times was just not a... More

We ate in the bar here on New Years Eve and had the three course menu. The food was beautiful and presented well. Service was great, every staff member was extremely friendly and smiling all the time! We ate at 8 so the atmosphere was nice, not too busy. Thanks for a lovely meal.
