One of the first quality sea food restaurants in Bristol and still in my opinion the best, when travelling to Bristol be advised driving is is near impossible train or coach being your best option.

Love this place. Downstairs the bar/kitchen with the best coffee on the entire harbourside, great food, fantastic location by the river, genuinely friendly and professional staff, free from irritating music - I always choose Riverstation over all the nearby cafes on the harbourside. Upstairs restaurant is great too.

Have been several times over the years and enjoyed the view of the river, swans and sometimew barking dogs on the barge opposite. Good service. A little overpriced.

Just missed brunch so had lunch here. Excellent menu with fine little twists. For example the patatas bravas which were slices of fried potato around chorizo served with the 'bravas' sauce. The food is delicious, well prepared, well presented and the waiter couldn't have been nicer. Such a joy!

We organised a surprise 70th birthday family dinner for my mum here and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. From our initial enquiry through to making the booking and the night itself, they went out of their way to make it a very special occasion. There was a set menu as it was in the run up to Christmas... More
