Restaurants in Bristol You Cannot Miss

April 5th, 2019
If you happen to travel to Bristol this weekend, you will most certainly be looking for a place to eat. Instead of you having to look through Trip Advisor or Google reviews, we have made it much simpler for you and put together some of the great restaurants in Bristol.

Here you can see the top 5 we have selected for you.

Poco Tapas Bar

It started as a festival caterer, feeding hungry travellers all around the UK. Now, this little tapas place has been awarded the “Best Business of the Year” award in 2018 by the Sustainable Restaurant Association. Here, you can enjoy your meal made out of locally grown ingredients. Some of the best dishes they advocate include the deep-fried oysters and labneh with buckwheat and roses. Plus, the atmosphere in this restaurant is so cosy, you will not want to leave.

Pikmans Bakery

We have all heard of sourdough bread, right? But what about sourdoughnuts? If not, then head to Pikmans Bakery to try them! Aside from doughnuts, you can also find matcha cakes and pizzas there to satisfy all your carb cravings. This is again, another multiple awards winner. One of the awards is the Best Independent Sandwich award so make sure to see how good a sandwich there really is yourself.


For a little taste of Berlin in Bristol, head to Albatross. You will find yourself in a small independent cafe where they roast speciality coffee, locally baked cakes and even cocktails on Fridays and Saturdays.

“Absolutely love this place it’s one of my favourite places to go on north street. The espresso martinis are AMAZING, as are all the drinks, served in the most gorgeous pottery or vintage glasses.”


If you’re vegan or just love mezze, or both, you can feed your soul at Koocha – Persian mezze restaurant. All of their ingredients are locally and sustainably sourced, and the menu is filled with options that will appeal to non-vegans too. You can eat some of the mezze classics there like dolmades and hummus, but also branch out and try eggless kookoo spinach balls, spiced cauliflower and courgetti pasta. Get a delicious pomegranate G&T to accompany your meal and your dinner is complete.

The Ethicurean

This restaurant has had its transformational rebirth in 2019. Their menu is guided by seasons which means that all items on the menu are dishes cooked with the seasonal and grown in their garden. They believe in celebrating the earth and its produce and so the menu revolves mainly around plants. If you want to have the freshest and healthy meals while sitting in a cosy, candlelit setting, then visit The Ethicurean.
