Estate Agents Bristol - A Taste of Europe in Bristol

It's all about Europe this week in the UK with the much anticipated Brexit referendum happening today and Euro 2016 in full swing... our UK teams are still in for the round of 16!

So to really enter into the spirit of Europe whether you're in or out or you support England, Ireland or Wales or any of the other competing countries, here are some super suggestions to eat your way around Europe without leaving Bristol.


Bordeaux Quay, Bristol Harbourside

You're spoilt for choice at the Bordeaux Quay where you'll find a restaurant, brasserie, wine bar, deli, bakery and cookery school, all under one roof.

The menu has a French influence and is made from the best seasonal and regionally sourced food and ingredients.

Try the ground floor Brasserie for an informal breakfast or lunch which opens out onto the waters edge. For something a little more elegant, book dinner in the first floor restaurant which has the most stunning views of the harbour.

Al Bacio, Clifton

Bravas, Cotham Hill

Classic Spanish small plates served in an intimate, softly lit tapas bar.

Bravas serve simple, freshly prepared, high quality Spanish inspired dishes intended to be shared, along with a great selection of Spanish wines and ice cold beers in frozen glasses. 

Highly recommended if you're out with a group and you're looking for somewhere sociable to spend an evening. The owners visit Spain regularly and change their menu daily to take advantage of the fresh and seasonal products available, therefore using ingredients that are both at their best and good value.
