The new Bristol Docks area are a joy to discover, particularly in the sunshine. Centrally located, near the Aquarium, the Bordeaux Quay has an excellent terrace where one can enjoy breakfast, or just a cappucino - great atmosphere.

This is a restaurant I have visited before, but I always hope that it will be better. It is a lovely location, and for breakfast it is quiet, and as they make their own bread, I thought it would be a good place for a coffee and a croissant.
£7.50 bought me a regular coffee, a cold croissant and an orange juice. The waitress brought me this and then seemed confused that I asked for butter with my croissant, even though the menu lists this item as croissant butter and jam.. And why would anyone serve a croissant cold ? After that I did not see the waitress again, so had to look for ways to pay the bill.
There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby that offer a cheaper and better value breakfast.

Visited the Bordeaux Quay for a Friday lunch with some work colleagues, having visited on a number of occasions for coffee, drinks and lunch over the years. Bordeaux Quay has a great location on the bustling waterfront in Bristol. The building is stunning with two levels. On the ground floor is a cosy bar area, bistro, and delicatessen. We didn't venture upstairs on this occasion - but this has been as fine dining area in the past. On the ground floor the triple height windows look over the water and flood the airy building with light. On this visit the downstairs bistro was full of customers - which was great to see. Service was friendly and efficient. Ultimately the test of a good restaurant is the food which on this occasion was perfectly acceptable without being particularly good. The menu has changed many times over the years and seems to now reflect a slightly more conservative selection than previously. We ate the risotto was pretty average, and the Italian fish stew was perfectly pleasant yet lacked a depth of flavour. We got the impression that the dishes were pre-made and warmed through rather than made fresh given the speed which they arrived at our table. Prices are middle to high - hence the 3* rating overall. Overall perfectly pleasant without being outstanding - hope this review encourages you to visit.

We had lunch outside on a sunny day in May. Restaurant is on the harbourside and are happy to serve meals and snacks inside and out. We have often stopped there for coffee or lunch.
