This was our third time in the last couple of years and each time has been amazingly good. It's a fantastic restaurant for a special occasion. Each dish and each amuse Boucher is so well presented by very attentive staff.

Our second visit to Wilks and it didn't disappoint. We opted for the al a carte menu this time. I won't waste everyone's time with long descriptions of the food as it's a Michelin restaurant so it's safe to say it was exceptional!!! The level of service sets Wilks apart from its competitors. The whole operation is smooth and well... More

We had a very good meal a couple years ago so had high expectation when visited again last month. Service was very nice but all the dishes we had were very average and some were quite bland, especially one of the amuse-bouche, it was a vegetable clear soup, it tasted very similar to a vegetable packet soup and it is...

We made a special trip from Colchester to Bristol to lunch at Wilks Restaurant as we had been given a gift voucher for Christmas. Parking was a headache as we don't know the area but it was all worth it. The food was delicious and very attractively presented, the service attentive without being 'over the top' and the ambiance relaxed.... More

A most exquisite meal was enjoyed by three of us in January. We chose the tasting menu and I needed to mention my shell fish alergy. This was fine, even at extremely short notice and my scallops were replaced with the teal risotto. Everything was delicious and first rate from our entry on a very cold night, to our departure....

I decided to try the set menu during lunch as a way of testing whether it would be worthwhile returning for the tasting menu. The service is very good. The staff are polite, helpful and constantly keep your drinks topped up with you barely noticing their presence. I was initially disappointed by the desserts on offer. I possess a sweet... More

We went to Wilks for a wedding annversary lunch. We had the set menu which was excellent value and also tasted absolutely delicious. It was so well priced, we splashed out on a more expensive bottle of wine recommended by the sommelier which was also delicious. Overall a delicious lunch and it made our anniversary. Would highly recomment

This little restaurant, away from the hotspots of Bristol, is simply the best we have visited for lunch in Bristol, which seems to have a dearth of really good ones considering the size of the city. We couldn't fault the standard of each course and the wonderful cheerful service. Long may it last - we shall visit often, although it's... More

Excellent food and wine, comfortable ambiance and perfect level of attentive service which was never intrusive. I couldn't disgaree more with Emme's review: we all had the tasting menu, but when I indicated there was a dish on it I didn't really want they instantly offered to substitute something different. The food was interesting, beautifully cooked and presented and by... More
