It was our wedding anniversary. We were in a City we had never been to before and so went on to Trip Adviser to find a good italian restaurant and 'Wow', we definitely found that! I could wax lyrical about all the good points, staff, food, atmosphere etc but ultimately I want to say that if you are looking for... More

Great food and a bargain at £6.50 per person for a side of either Garlic Bread or a Salad with a choice of any of their Pastas or Pizzas. As we pre-order the food came out very quickly. It was all hot and well cooked, which is surprising considering there was about 22 of us in our party. I would... More

A group of us came here for a lunch as a colleague of ours was leaving. We had booked in advance, so seated immediately. I was pleasantly surprised to see the restaurant very busy already. Our food came very quickly, and we paid £6.50 each for the lunch menu which I must say was hearty portions!!! You also get to... More

There are many many restaurants in Bristol which serve good food and provide excellent service. Why has Europa got such good votes is completely beyond me. The staff were so rude that we decided not to bother ordering. By then we had a bottle of lukewarm white wine to drink (dont ask for chilled apparently ours was...). I have been... More

Your confused! I am more confused by someone coming into a restaurant and not wanting to eat. Why come especially if you don't like our food? More

I came here with my partner for an evening meal and I have to say I thought the food was great. I didn't have any of the cheaper deals.we ate ala carte and the menu was far from standard fare as a previous reviewer stated it was gorgeous, perfect risotto and a delicious mushroom and blue cheese starter. Also the... More

Thank you so much for your review about our restaurant, we have been here now for nearly 25 years and it is because of customers like yourselves that hopefully we will be here for another 25 years. Over 60% of our customers write 5* reviews and only 3% award us 1* You can't please everyone in this world! More

Had an unplanned meal out tonight and decided to goto Europa as it was too warm for Indian. We have been twice before some years ago, but hoped it was still the same. The windows at the front were pulled open, meaning it wasnt ridiculously hot in there, and had a nice bit of fresh air. The service was excellent,... More

It is great to hear that we are still delivering great food at excellent prices with good service and the ability to adapt any of our dishes in order to give our customer the personal touch that they have come to expect and deserve from Europa. Loving the pics you kindly posted... More

on a warm evening - the windows are pulled back to give a nice airy feel. friendly staff , good value meals, and the house red was very good quality. they even had reading glasses available. original dishes on the menu and despite a big group being in our food came quickly. will definitely return.

We went yesterday evening for dinner and ... we didn't understand ! How can this AWFUL restaurant have 4,5 stars ?? The deco is cheap, the service is terrible (we were more or less kicked-out of the place because we were the last ones), and worst of all ... the cooking was a disaster !! All our pastas were dipping... More
