Bristol is a food lover’s dream, with award-winning restaurants serving the finest food from across the world.

We have everything from gourmet delights to juicy burgers, from creamy cheeses to scrumpy cider. In Bristol there is something delicious waiting to be devoured around every corner.

Enjoy ultimate relaxation at The Lido in Clifton, where you can munch a poolside brunch in the morning, or delicate tapas dishes and a glass or two of vino during the afternoon. The Mediterranean-inspired restaurant is perfectly located in the original viewing gallery overlooking the pool, and the swim & eat packages they offer mean you can make a day of it.

In the mood for some fine dining? Bristol now boasts four Michelin-starred restaurants, including Casamia and Paco Tapas in the harbour, or you can head south of Bristol to The Pony & Trap, which serves up award-winning seasonal food and beers from local brewery, Bristol Beer Factory. Get recommendations for where to eat from Josh Eggleton, head chef at The Pony & Trap, in his Food Friday interview.

Back in the city centre, explore the Harbourside and have a bite to eat on one of Bristol's popular boat restaurants. Three Brothers Burgers sell big, beautiful burgers and towering milkshakes.

On the water’s edge, rows of restaurants, cafes and bars line the harbour. At The Stable you can enjoy over 60 types of cider along with a slice or two of award-winning pizza while you take in the view.

Across the bridge in Wapping Wharf, stacks of individual and independent restaurants inside shipping containers offer fresh flavours with ever-changing menus. Here you can sample everything from Indian and Mexican street food dishes to salt beef sandwiches, and sip a locally-made beer in the sun.
