Description: We are a family run authentic moroccan bistro on the wells road between totter down and knowle. Established 10 years ago we operate on a B.Y.O basis allowing the customer to bring the tipple of their choice. We use traditional moroccan recipes from tagines to meshwi and relax in the moroccan bedouin seating or the more traditional bistro seating. We can cater for large groups and belly dancing can be arranged. So come and enjoy a taste of morocco in Bristol. AS WITH ALL TRADITIONAL MOROCCAN RECIPES TAGINES DO TAKE A WHILE TO COOK SO WE WOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED FAST FOOD

We used our Amazon Local voucher at Assilah last night and were delighted, both with the friendly welcome we received from our hostess, whose sense of humour never flagged while serving a packed restauranton her own. The decor and music complemented the food, which is fresh, delicious and worth waiting for, the best tagine I have ever tasted, and from... More

We used an Amazon offer for our meal and had some great food at a very reasonable price. Loads of veggie options and a good meat selection too. There are very few decent establishments on Wells Road and luckily this place ticks all the boxes, we will be back.

My friend and I had purchased a voucher for this Bistro. I had been past it more times than I can count and am almost upset that I hadn't been before now! The decor is amazing. We ate very fresh and extremely tasty food. And the owner was the only waiting staff on and still managed to run everything smoothly... More

Searching for a nice, well priced meal for two, we were definatly right in coming here. Everything surpassed our expectations (which were already quite high). Its great to get to, ten minute walk from temple meads and a bus stops round the corner. The food was delicious, we had falafels, and two lamb dishes which were also very well priced... More

Just retuned home from a fantastic authentic Moroccan meal at the Assilah Bistro. The décor was very 'Moroccan' and the food was amazing. The service was excellent and the two members of staff we met were friendly and very efficient. One even went the 'extra mile' when we phoned en route to ask where on the Wells Road the bistro...

The main was a fish tagine and lamb meatball tagine. each was served with rice, couscous and salad. we finished off with baklava and icecream. The... More

First time to this gem of a restaurant. Really friendly service and a genuine north-african ambiance. The menu is short but certainly not short on flavours. BYO and just £2 corkage. I would highly recommend this restaurant for authenticity and value..

Loved this restaurant. The food was great (kofte tagine - yum!), the service friendly and attentive, the decor really atmospheric and removing the cost of wine from the bill (it is a BYO restaurant) meant it was really affordable too. Would definitely recommend.
