A great place on the harbour

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.

Very good place to stop whilst Touring the bock area. Whilst the menu choice is limited and not haute cuisine, it offers very good value. My beef risotto was a very filling substantial meal. Managed to get an outside table on a sunny day. Great place to sit, drink a pint etc. Food arrived very promptly. Clientel of all ages.... More

A long established cafe/bar with great views over the waterfront, it’s a relaxed, chilled out sort of place that tries to cater for all sorts, whether you just popping in for a pint, a coffee, or something to eat. Food choice seems to be a bit more limited than I recall from previous visits. Their Spring menu had a few... More

Cheap and good quality, and big enough that you dont have to overhear the table of welsh laughing as hard as they can Well worth it if you are on the Water front in Bristol

Lovely sunny upstairs airy cafe with really lovely food and drinks available. Perfect if you can nab a seat to sit on the small balcony overlooking the river. Would recommend pretty much anything on the menu.

We always seem to end up here when I visit Bristol! It has a great chilled out atmosphere, good especially if you're trying to get some work done over a relaxed lunch/coffee. The food is reasonably priced, you get a decent portion and it is very tasty - but best of all not only are there plenty of vegetarian options,... More
