This is a lovely restaurant on the water's edge in Bristol. Our party had the set lunch and a la carte - both were fabulous. And the service was excellent. Definitely somewhere to eat again.

Recently attended a friends wedding who had his reception at Riverstation. The food, wine and service were all excellent! Everybody had a fantastic experience. One of the best restaurants in Bristol. Stunning location and a great place to go with friends, family or your significant other!

Always provides consistently good service and great food in a lovely setting and very relaxed atmosphere. Great for visitors to the city who haven't booked as downstairs you do not need bookings. I had a party for 80 here about 3 years ago and was amazed how well organised and attentive they were. I am a regular visitor and I... More

Another excellent visit, lovely mushrooms on toast with crispy sage, small platters of mixed starters were superb and usual great service. Busy as always especially as one party had booked half the restaurant, a few people even braved sitting outside. Lovely riverside location.

I dined here with friends on Friday evening and loved the lively atmosphere, the restaurant was very busy but the service was not compromised, the upstairs dining room is spacious and stylish which complemented the great menu. We tried the set menu which gave a good range of flavours. It arrived in good time and tasted delicious, was great value... More

As we arrived here at 5pm before heading off to a show and we dined in the waterside bar+kitchen as the restaurant wasn't open until 6pm. We started off with the tapas including peppers, pinchos and hummus. We then had the very tasty sea bream and the minute steak with accompaniments. All were washed down with fine ales and wine....

The ground floor good for snacks through to two/three course meals. Top floor is more upmarket with excellent wine list. Both floors have helpful and pleasant staff. Frequent visits. I eat there around once a month.
