Bristol : restaurants, bars and cafés to try


Food/Health

Whether enjoying a little retail therapy at The Galleries, visiting the Bristol markets, or looking forward to the Hippodrome’s latest offering, a day out in Bristol wouldn’t be complete without a visit to one of its newest cafes, bars or restaurants.

Restaurant Bianchis
Picton Street, Montpelier

A real Italian trattoria run by cousins Ben Harvey and Dom Borel, the Bianchis opened its doors in early September. Already operating three other Italian restaurants catering for Bristol’s pasta lovers, the boys have got Bianchis off to a good start. If you’re passing by around lunchtime, call in and enquire what the lunch deal is. On opening, it was pasta of the day with a glass of wine for £12.50. The venue is dark wood panelling and dark wood furniture, with the centre piece being a large dresser fully loaded with a massive selection of wines for every occasion.

Restaurant Tortilla
Cabot Circus, city centre

New to Bristol, the Tortilla restaurant is part of Europe’s largest chain of 46 fast-casual Mexican restaurants. Expansion hasn’t finished yet, the group has plans to open a further three Tortilla restaurants in the UK over the coming months. Unashamedly a fast-food outlet, Tortilla serves American style Mexican nachos, tacos, and burritos to eat in, or take away. To give you that real Mexican feeling, the restaurant also offers genuine Mexican beers and margaritas, as well as a range of soft drinks.

Black Rock Bar
Marsh Street, City Centre

Whether you’re something of a whisky connoisseur, or someone struggling to get to grips with the whisky myths, a visit to Bristol’s newly opened Black Rock bar is a must. With 250 different whiskies from around the world you can enjoy a tipple straight, on the rocks, or in a whisky cocktail. For those a little bemused by the varieties, Black Rock staff encourage the clientele to read the labels, and are on hand to answer any questions and queries. Although décor is minimalist, the centre-piece is a 216 year old oak, which plays an important part in the Black Rock set-up. It holds 20 litres of the brand’s signature house-aged whisky cocktail, which is delivered on tap.

New Moon Tapas Restaurant
9 The Kiosk, Cathedral Walk

The New Moon Tapas has been tickling the tapas taste buds of Bristolians for a number of years. Run by a husband and wife team, originally from Russia and Bulgaria, their original restaurant was in Gloucester Road, before moving to The Mall, Clifton. Now their second New Moon Tapas is nearly ready to open. With of 20 years in the restaurant tapas trade they specialise in ‘small plate’ tapas and cocktails. With its cosy, warm interior and fabulous food, it makes the ideal venue for those romantic special occasions.
