I visited Bristol for a fortnight and Poco became the second home. The kitchen staff really know their craft, the tapas variety and quality was top notch with interesting ingredients, combinations and better than pretty much everything I ate in Spain! The service team are...More

We had some delicious dishes many of which were tasted by all six family members. Everyone enjoyed their choices with some dishes getting a special mention and an enthusiastic thumbs up. The choice of savoury dishes and scrumptious desserts meant we all could find something...More

Living near by, Poco is our favourite place to go for a romantic delicious dinner or lunch- this time did not disappoint, as ever. The cauliflower dish especially was outstanding, and wine and service as always on point. We will continue to come back frequently!...More

Let me put this way. I like food and real restaurants. Afraid to say that in Britain you have few chances to go to a real one without paying enough to buy a kidney at the black market. Well this one fits my idea of...More

We dropped in here for lunch as a couple of other places had turned us away because we hadn’t thought to make a reservation. I’m glad we did as it was a delight. My vegan brunch was really tasty and filling (I did manage to...More

We had a fantastic evening here, they catered well for my vegan choices as well as for my husbands preference for meat and fish options. Delicious food, great wine,chilled atmosphere and attentive service. We're going back with friends this month, highly recommended.

Brilliant food in a lovely restaurant with friendly, well-informed and helpful staff. Highly recommend the hake, the portuguese potatoes and the labneh with local sourdough. I’m sure everything on the menu is wonderful!

Thanks so much for the lovely review Jane! What a joy to read and yes, the beetroot BM is dangerously good! See you again soon I hope for some tapas!

It’s a great location and a buzzy atmosphere with friendly and polite service. Unfortunately the food is distinctly average and underwhelming. It’s fine but not as good as other tapas places in Bristol. Tasty but no where near special or standout. Only one toilet as...More

Not experienced their breakfast/brunch yet but their small plate evening meal selection is awesome. It's not a cheap eat but it's good value considering you always know where your food has come from, every dish is lovingly prepared and tastes divine. Bristol has stacks of...More

Hi Tabitha, Eddiebech has the right of it- Around 30 seats in the back of the restaurant. We do have some space in the front as well but around 30 is the maximum booking we could accomodate. Hope that helps and thanks to... More

Poco Tapas Bar is a seasonal restaurant in the heart of Stokes Croft in Bristol. Named Britains most sustainable restaurant for 2016 as well as having won the Observer Food Monthly magazine's Best Ethical Restaurant award, having a positive effect on the environment is at the core of what they do. All their meat is free range and fish varieties and catch method are inline with the highest MCS guidelines. Vegetables are organic wherever possible and recipes are designed to avoid any waste. Their brunch menu marries New York style with inspiration born of world travel. Morrocan eggs, homemade harrisa sauce, grilled sourdough and mounds of steaming butter kale all feature along side a menu of different bloody mary's. With light cascading in through the skylights and lush green plants tumbling down the wall there's few places better to wile away a day. Come evening the lights get dimmed, candles are lit and the menu switches to a broad range of fresh and creative tapas dishes chalked up on the black board wall at the back. It reads like a who's who of South Western seasonal produce; Wye Valley Asparagus, Dorset Rock Oysters, Cornish Mussels and Somerset Kid Goat all featuring. Saddleback pork belly roast with lemon and fennel is a universal favourite which has been a consistent presence in the fast changing menu since day one.
