Nice food, reasonably priced, central location

The food is not fancy but there is a great selection on the menu and the food is tasty. The atmosphere is really nice and it's a lovely pub-cafe type restaurant. Check the specials board before ordering as there are generally nice things on it. Recommended.

I enjoyed the figs with goat cheese appetizer and my son had the veggie curry which was also wonderful. It was later in the evening and so it was very noisy and crowded when the movie was over but since it's such a large place we found alternate seating quickly. We started near the windows and the view of the... More

Watershed is a really nice place for coffee, beer, food , socialising as well as studying! I usually go there with my laptop. It has a lot of seatings and it offers a beautiful view of the Bristol Harbourside! (Try to sit near the windows)

The Watershed is a lovely place to visit for pre or post cinema food and drinks. I love the relaxed atmosphere here, away from the waterfront chaos, it is a great place for good food in a chilled ambience setting. There isn't a lot of variety of food, however, it is simple good value food and we love the local... More

Booked online to view film, Song of the Sea( brilliant!) . Saw that that entitled you to discount on meals. All had lovely food, great atmosphere, friendly staff. Will return if in the area for great films and food. Had a slight problem but all sorted by competent staff. Lovely position near floating harbour.

Came to Bristol in November for a weekend away and this restaurant was recommended to us. It was AMAZING!! The seafood was delicious and the staff were polite. Will be returning this November as well!

Right on the waterside and attached to the fine arts cinema and centre - good food and drink and a great happy informal space. I think this was where the re-birth of the docks started with Tony Byrne and the City council. Just look at the transformation!

This is a nice cafe bar for atmosphere, didn't feel awkward been solo. Food good and a nice coffee. Good view, and airy on a warm summers day.

Lovely stroll along the Quayside. Great coffee bar/cafe and winery overlooking the water. Dappled sunlight throug the tall window on a summer afternoon with a good bottle of red wine is unbeatable Fab venue, an all time favorite with locals and delightful destination for visitors.
