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

Europa still going strong after all these years!! 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

I took my husband to Europa for an evening meal to celebrate his birthday. Although the restaurant itself is fairly small and a little cramped, the service, quality of food and atmosphere is superb. We ordered 3 courses each, in addition to several cocktails, shots and the magnificent Italian palette cleanser, Limoncello. Knowing that it was my husbands birthday, the... More

I went here just a week ago for the first itme and have already been back for a second visit! The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is wonderful. The ambience has an authentic feel to it especially with the pictures of Italy on the walls. I recommend you make a visit very soon!

My other half had buffalo mozzarella to start and pizza for main - freshly made and cooked. We were given choice of... More

God help the customers if you don't leave the expected service charge, which is optional (I thought) demanding why we did not leave one? When told the reason, the manager came out demanding that we should pay the service charge, he even made Basil Fawlty look normal! Been there three times, each time was an experience thinking it must improve,... More

The experience was all ours!! On the two previous occasions that you dined with us you where very loud and disruptive to other customers in the restaurant which included singing. We asked very politely for you to refrain from this behavior but you where not forthcoming; as a result of your actions we received numerous complaints and had people leave... More
