The River Grille Restaurant Review

River Grille Restaurant

I love visiting Bristol and was looking forward to dining at the much heard about River Grille restaurant at the Bristol Hotel.

The River Grille is located in the centre of the city and has beautiful views of the Harbourside. The restaurant has two entrances: the hotel access is via Prince Street and also a separate entrance for non-guests on Narrow Quay by the Harbourside.

The restaurant is light and airy, the entire front is glass cased with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the river, so we got to see the beautiful view during our dinner.

The River Grille serves modern British cuisine using local produce from the West Country. The menu changes with the seasons to reflect the best in seasonal produce: for starters we had the goats cheese and manuka honey with walnut sourdough and rocket salad and severn and wye smoked salmon, rilletes and pickled cucumber.

For mains we both chose seafood dishes, inspired by the stunning view of the river: the Cornish mussels and special of the day market fish. The fish was fresh and very tasty and the mussels were delicious, full of flavour and generous portion too!

If you’re a fan of rich indulgent deserts then try dark chocolate mousse, pumpkin custard and pistachio ice cream, delicious!

The River Grille is a sophisticated restaurant with the perfect mix of a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The à la carte menu was not complicated, with a good selection of dishes to choose from. The quality of food was fantastic, freshly prepared using the best local produce.

What really made our experience at the River Grille so special was the attention to detail and excellent service. The staff were polite and took time to explain the menu to us and make recommendations on the choice of wine. The River Grille is a perfect choice for a special occasion or just to experience sophisticated dining in a beautiful setting.
