We had a two-course lunch at the Riverstation last weekend. We were a little early and so we were directed to the bar on the ground floor where we enjoyed a pre-meal drink before going upstairs to the restaurant. From the outset of our visit the staff were efficient, attentive, polite and cheerful, and could not be faulted for their... More

We were part of a private party, and the food and drink were both of a high standard. The service was excellent - attentive but unobtrusive - and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Once seated in the modern but comfortable dining room with excellent views over the harbour, staff were quick to offer drinks and some excellent fresh bread from the basket. The service throughout the meal... More

Regrettably, the clock was ticking on the meter, and it took 2 hours to get through a simple set lunchtime menu. That said, the staff were all charming and the food very acceptable

I remembered it as being a restaurant with lovely tables , white cloths etc : it is now cramped with plastic chairs.... More

We celebrated our daughter's master's graduation with a lovely family party in the private dining room on Thursday 16th February. Both the meal and service were as ever completely perfect.

Went last week for sunday brunch. Arrived at 11am so its a fair time. Staff were half asleep bless "em! Foods okay but nothing to write home about. Bit on the expensive side for me.

One of our favourite restaurants in Bristol. Usually some interesting choices on the menu, and has always been cooked excellently. We've been several times and never had a bad meal. Also love the atmosphere, which is really relaxed, laid back and unpretentious. Ask for a table near the window for nice views over the Bristol harbourside.
