As the eighth most populous city in the United Kingdom, Bristol is packed with a plethora of excellent restaurants of all styles, set to cater to even the most discerning of tastes. And whether you’re a fan of the most exquisite in Indian cuisine or the most homely of gastropub grub, Bristol is bound to have plenty of restaurants to please both your eyes and your taste buds.
So which are some of the city’s most popular eateries? Well, if you’re a fan of Italian food then you’re in luck: Bristol has plenty of offers, one of the best being Sergios, an esteemed restaurant tucked away on Frogmore Street. This excellent restaurant has a daily changing menu, meaning it’s hard to plan exactly what you’re after, but the good news is that you can rest assured there’s always going to be something delicious available without things getting too repetitive. Another popular Italian place is Amici, which is known for its absolutely enormous menu – ideal for those Italian fans who want to try something new while being sure that, whatever it is, it’s going to be tasty!
For diners who haven’t got anything specific in mind, it’s a good idea to head to ‘the Strip’, also known as Whiteladies Road. As you walk along this eye-catching and pleasing road, it won’t be long before you notice just how many restaurants there are. Here you’ll find excellent eateries such as Quartier Vert, which is an organic restaurant that puts great emphasis on the quality and sourcing of its ingredients. You’ll also be able to sample a selection of eighty wines – perhaps not all on the same night – whilst enjoying a delightful meal of provincial European food.
Across the road is Hullabaloos, another European style restaurant that focuses on contemporary meals in an exotic split level restaurant that is practically a tourist attraction in and of itself. Beside it is the Picture House, a casual, Hollywood stars of yesteryear themed restaurant with an extensive tapas selection and, like Quartier Vert, a strict belief in the careful sourcing of its ingredients.
For a taste of another world, head to Las Iguanas, a South American restaurant specialising in a range of delights from Brazil, Columbia, Ecuador and myriad other countries whose local fare will impress diners – and all at affordable prices. Be sure to try the cocktails based on cachaca, the national drink of Brazil, for a truly authentic experience.
Be sure to book one of the Bristol hotels close to the Strip if you’re planning on frequent fine food – and bon appétit!
