If you love unpretentious French food, welcome to heaven…

Husband and wife team Jérôme and Roxane and their best friend Ophelie have set out to bring the best of Parisian bistro-culture to Bristol, with a focus on quality ingredients and simple, flavoursome dishes served in a relaxed atmosphere that is somewhere between a wine bar and a restaurant.

The kitchen serves delicious, wholesome food like comforting onion soup, ratatouille, sharing boards of French cheese and charcuterie and pissaladières, traditional pizzas from Nice.

Unmissable dishes include cafe gourmand, a hot drink with a selection of mini desserts, and decadent raclette, a melting basin of cheese with your selection of potatoes, cornichons and meat to dip in.

Of course, the exclusively French wine list is superb, while the cocktail menu includes all your favourites alongside some sophisticated signature serves. If absinth, vodka, honey and orange bitters sounds like a bit of you, try the La Fée. Also on offer is Mariage Frères tea, which has legendary status in France.

For an authentic taste of Paris you can’t beat La Guinguette. Located on Cheltenham Road

Dined at La Guinguette with my daughter- the food was amazing and the portions enormous! Can highly recommend the baked Camembert starter which is enough for two to share and also the steak frites which was cooked to perfection. We will be returning for sure!!

We noticed this place had recently opened and thought 'we need to check this out'. Especially as it is a French place, we hoped they had a decent wine list (The Library across the road had recently closed!). So, them being on First Table was a fortuitous situation.
First ting: the red wine was served at the right temperature! We ordered the cheese board as a starter and they were absolutely delicious! Sourced from France apparently. We then had the steak frites and they were done exactly to specifications. On that aprticular evening it was a bit qiet, but that gave us a chance to have a little chat with the owners who were very friendly and accommodating. We liked it su much we returned two days later. If you fancy a bit of French Bistrot culture in Bristol this is the place to go to!

If you love the chilled vibe of a Parisian bistro, La Guinguette is 100% your place!

The hosts are so friendly, the atmosphere is chilled and relaxed but the food... oh my the food! Simple french food cooked to perfection, every dish was just perfect and such great quality. The wine was amazing which made a good night a great night, you need to try La Guinguette. Best new bistro I have tasted and by far my new favourite place!

Thanks so much guys, we fell in love with La Guinguette and will be back again very soon!

Great food and friendly service throughout. We were eating with our toddler and the waiter was really helpful and brought food out quickly to keep the little guy happy! I had a really tasty Steak Frites, cooked perfectly, and my wife really enjoyed her raclette. Relaxed atmosphere. Good experience all round.

Wow what a great find.

This newly opened French Cafe / Restaurant is a must if you enjoy great French cuisine.

My husband and I were warmly welcomed and shown to a small booth - perfect for the two of us. The ambience is enhanced by the warm colours and lighting. We knew we were in for a treat.

After a glass of wine from our very reasonably priced bottle of Sauvignon Blanc we made our choice as follows:

Starters
Small baked camembert with toast and Tuna and Tarragon Fillets (pate) served with sour dough bread.

Main
Chicken Cesar Salad
Boeuf Bourginon and new potatoes

Desert
Crepes Suzette with Cointreau

The food is absolutely delicious and we felt very spoilt. We took our time over every course and at no point were we rushed. The service is excellent and we will definitely be back.

This Cafe / Restaurant has everything to offer that we are looking for - Great Food, Great Service and Great Atmosphere.

Excellent evening! Really enjoyed the food (generous portions too) and the wine and cocktails were fab. Staff very attentive and professional. Was glad to see restaurant was full by the time we left - lovely buzzy atmosphere. Recommended.
