Have now been here on a number of occasions, with family and on business. It has a great value menu at weekends (2/3 courses) and the a la carte menu available in the evenings is equally as good. Food is fantastic; home made bread is a great start to the meal. Lovely location, particularly in the summer. Highly recommend.

I love all of this restaurant! I tried lunch and I found the food was excellent and it had very good portion as well. I chose pork as main and it was delicious. Its sauce tasted a bit like Japanese plum. I also enjoyed the breads which had good combination of salt and herb and they were so tasty. The... More

Heard a lot of good things about this restaurant and I was not let down. The starter was delicious. For the main dish, I went for pork. It was well cooked and super delicious. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great too. The service was also nice. The dessert was also yummy. What I like the most is that they... More

An interior with a nautical feel makes the most of the exposure to the river and pulls off a well designed space that balances openness and intimacy. The menu is fairly short and the food fairly uncomplicated but I don't believe that to be a bad thing, especially when it is as well executed as the meals that we ate.... More

The game starter was very well cooked and tasty and the white truffle and cheese soufflé was delightful. Together with a quirky southern German red and we had a lovely meal. The set menus was a bit limited in choice and imagination but very well presented.

This was my first visit to Bristol river side. It is like Paris! I had lunch on the first floor of the restaurant. There is a beautiful view and so nice atmosphere. I had pork main dish and dessert. Both so good! The pork was tender, sauce was a lovely flavor. I highly recommend to visit this restaurant!!

Where to begin? I had the soup of the day followed by the daily special main course, pork belly. Really fresh and full of flavour. Well cooked. Just lovely food. Service was friendly and attentive. Ambience is great. Very atmospheric at night. Just a great place.

We dined at Riverstation on a Thursday evening having stopped over in Bristol en route to Devon. We had three courses and everything was delicious. The wine was also good. The waiting staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the food. Would definitely recommend.

We were 5 on a very busy Friday evening and all opted for the fixed price menu..the choices were really interesting and delicious, the chef was kind and flexible enough to omit beetroot from a risotto for 2 beet-haters, and Anna who mainly served us was always friendly and unhurried despite the crowded restaurant. Atmosphere was good, wine choices were... More

We had a business dinner at the Riverstation on Wednesday the 5th of Nov. We had the 3 course set menu. Food was very good and came out quite quickly. Despite the fact that we were 45 we had the best service we could possibly have. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. A special thank you to the bar... More
