We dined at Flinty Red last night . i had high expectations based on all the Tripadvisor reviews and other restaurant reviews i had read and my expectations were surpassed. This has to be the best restaurant in Bristol and one of the best places I have ever eaten. The food is imaginative and gave us the opportunity to try things we would never consider. There were 3 of us and we opted for lots of small dishes - tapas style. The food is brought to the table as and when it is ready. Highlights for me were the ravioli, cuttlefish and creme brûlée. The wine list is extensive and gave us the chance to try a varied selection. We had 3 half carafes. The Nero d'avola was especially delicious. The staff were friendly and knowledgable and the decor and ambience were just right. Al in all a memorable experience and we can't wait to return. Why it's not number one on tripadvisor is beyond me!
