Have been a few times and never disappoints. Every type of breakfast including pancakes, steak and maple syrup. Worth going for the milkshakes alone

My best friends and I frequent this place at least twice a month on Sundays for brunch and we are never dissaponted. The milkshakes are amazing, the pancakes are fabulous and the service is very efficient. The only downside is that their burgers are not as good as everything else on the menu but I wouldn't say that us a... More

Dear Rocotillos, I had a milkshake in Paris today and it was (unsurprisingly) not even half as good as yours! It made me realise I totally miss the So Nacho Burger too, seriously who needs French cuisine when you can have a Nacho Burger? And I had forgotten curly fries don't exist here :'( Plus, French breakfast is so boring;... More

Chocolate milkshakes are incredible. Worth the trip just for one of those! However, food is average, but reasonably priced.

During the past 15 years I have noticed a decline in the quality of the Rocotillo's milkshake. They are no longer as thick as they used to be and that is because it is now a luxury you have to pay extra for. Also depending on who makes your milkshake will depend on how tasty it is. This is very... More

I was taken here by my boss as it used to be a regular haunt of his when he worked in Bristol. Has the look inside and out of an American diner. We ordered 2 breakfasts and coffee, and boy did it stack up to the bosses recommendations. Lovely sausage and bacon, really well cooked eggs and tomato and a... More

Rocotillo's is something of a Bristol institution, and it's still good, just not as good as it once was...resting on its laurels perhaps? The style and food is very much that of a US Diner of the '50's/60's i.e. burgers, hot dogs, chilli, milk shakes and the like. All was fine on a recent visit, just missing the edge it... More
