Black Boy Inn, Whiteladies Road: Food Review

The sign outside now proudly proclaims that the Black Boy Inn on Whiteladies Road is now open for business, as of Friday, July 8th. It’s taken new owners Ivona and Sam a few months to transform the place into the smart, stylish gastropub that it has now become, but with the venue packed with both […]

Aqua Italia, Welsh Back: Review

If you haven’t yet discovered Travelzoo’s local deals, it’s definitely worth heading over to their website and signing up for email alerts whenever a new deal appears. An email in June promoted a fantastic deal at Aqua Italia for two people: 2 cocktails and a ‘fritto misto’ each plus two sharing platters for just £29. […]

Vincenzo’s Restaurant & Pizzeria: Review

The impromptu decision of a friend and I to go for lunch on Saturday meant a wander down Park Street from the top of the Triangle to find somewhere (a), not too expensive, and (b), that we hadn’t tried before. We hadn’t walked very far before we ended up at Vincenzo’s Italian Restaurant, and were […]

Masa Japanese Restaurant: Review

A few weeks back, having been told via Twitter that it was International Sushi Day that Saturday, we’d had cravings all weekend. Our favourite Japanese restaurant in Bristol (Noa in Clifton Village) is closed on Sundays, so we decided to pay a visit to Masa on Baldwin Street… Subscribe to Bristol Bites by Email

Oz Turkish Restaurant: Review

Turkish venue Oz Restaurant is very much proof that you shouldn’t take things at face value.  The building’s previous incarnation was as a chip shop, and it remains nestled amongst burger and kebab shops on the Triangle. With a very unassuming exterior, it’s not often that you walk past and see the place heaving with […]

Primrose Cafe Pig Dinner, June 20th: Review

Pig dinners seem to be popular in Bristol at the moment! After attending the first Castellano’s All Things Pig dinner, I unfortunately wasn’t able to make the second. So, when an email appeared in my inbox inviting me to the Primrose Cafe‘s celebration of the animal, we booked our table immediately… Subscribe to Bristol Bites […]

The Thali Café, Clifton Village: Review

I’m ashamed to admit that, despite having been in Bristol for almost two years, I’ve only recently paid my first visit to the Bristol institution that is The Thali Café. Winner of the Best Cheap Eats award in the Observer Food Monthly Awards last year, it’s a mini-chain of Indian restaurants with branches in Montpelier, […]

Clifton Kitchen, Clifton Village: Review

So reads a tweet from Princess Victoria Street’s Clifton Kitchen, posted on the morning of our visit. It seemed odd to us that the bread should be singled out as the highlight of the restaurant’s offerings on the day, but as it turned out, we agreed… Subscribe to Bristol Bites by Email

Thai Classic, Whiteladies Road: Review

Craving reasonably-priced Thai food over the recent Bank Holiday weekend, we decided to head to Thai Classic on Whiteladies Road after noticing their offer of three courses and a beer, glass of wine or soft drink for £16, 7 days a week… Subscribe to Bristol Bites by Email

Rupsha South Asian Restaurant: Review

I’ve been struggling to find a decent Indian restaurant near me for a while, so when Asif from the newly opened Rupsha on Clifton Village’s Regent Street invited me to come for dinner, I wasn’t going to say no… Subscribe to Bristol Bites by Email
