Great atmosphere

I love the pizza and tapas selection at the Boca Bar. It has a great chilled atmosphere with big settees for lounging.

A birthday celebration with friends, a really relaxing & chilled bar. Love the atmosphere with comfy sofas & a great acoustic duo playing great music to add to the ambiance. A great place to have in Brislington!

Best piozza we have ever had. The slate platter was delicious. Sweets expensive and Vanilla Brownie was far too hard.

This place has a lively atmosphere with comfy, chilled out decor and great food. We were attracted by the family friendly attitude (Kids are welcome until 9.30pm) and the great selection of pizza on offer. Our first visit was on a friday night when the place was busy with the after work crowd as well as regular diners. Despite being... More

Visited Sunday afternoon. Place overrun with babies and toddlers. Toddlers running around and parents had no regard for other diners. Very crèche like. I really didn't like that. Very nice food. Good service.

Monday evening with 5 girlfriends and restaurant not busy so would have expected better service. Bit offish when taking drinks order at Bar. Later I asked a member of staff behind the counter to tell me what something was from the deli display counter and they just shrugged saying they didn't know which I didn't really think was very satisfactory....

There's a great atmosphere in this large open plan bar & restaurant. With welcoming old leather sofas & comfy chairs. Amazing pizzas & Sunday lunches. Good choice of beer. Attracting a nice mix of locals.
