The food that is available is outstanding you have everything from a carvery to curry to sushi. All you can eat and all you can drink with the refillable machines. Would recommend highly. Book a table as they are really busy and a lot of big tables placed around the restaurant. Desserts area is amazing as it has a chocolate... More

It was nice here, not somewhere I would recommend for a quiet meal as you hardly see each other! Food and service was good and the kids were well catered for. Would definitely come back.

Cosmo are a chain of buffet style restaurants. They offer an 'all you can eat' option during your sitting and a 'bottomless' soft drink option too. If you're familiar with the Cosmo brand then you already now about the sheer scale of variety. Focusing on Chinese food but offering an array of Indian, Vietnamese and Thai food too. You can...

Been here once and found the Buffett below average. Fell short of expectations for the price. On arrival, we were welcomed by some burly security guard, not the best first impression. Been to quite a few Red Hots all over the country and this doesn't even come close to the worst Red Hot. The food is quite salty, the variety... More

Absolutely brilliant and don't think any other buffet style restaurants can beat it!! I've been here on many occasions as I live in Bristol and this is one of my favourite places to eat by far!

I come here as often as the possible. The only down side is that the parking in that area is pretty naff. It does get very busy in there so you can end up having to wait but it really just depends on the day. The food is always well presented and hot and looks and tastes great on all... More

We have wanted to try Cosmo for a while and after visiting Bristol we decided to stop for lunch! We found the restaurant itself clean but chairs were ripped and had seen better days. Food was average and some was a bit cold but for lunch it was not bad for £7.50 each although I don't think I would be... More

Came here for family birthday in the evening. Was quite busy but we were shown to our table very quickly. We all had a very nice experience, food was average like you normally expect with any other Buffett style restaurants. It's better when it's busy so that the food don't sit there to long so it keeps getting topped up... More

I've heard mixed reviews about COSMO's but recently visited as had a family meal to attend. There were a big group of us (half of which were kids) and I found the food to be of good quality and tasty. It's a very family/friends atmosphere this isn't somewhere you would go on a date or if you wanted to actually... More

Visited here with 4 youngsters as part of a birthday treat. Started off at the aquarium and made our way up the hill to Cosmo. We had reserved which I would recommend as the place is busy. They have two different prices. Higer price in the evening and half that for lunch. If you are under 1.5m you get half... More
