Price Point: Mains from £15-£30

For locally-sourced, seasonal food in an elegant waterfront setting, look no further than The River Grille.

Handily located in The Bristol Harbourside hotel, the loft-style space is flooded with light thanks to enormous windows and high ceilings. It’s a refined yet casual place to relax with delicious grub to a flowing soundtrack of live piano music.

Menus showcase the finest seasonal ingredients prepared with finesse. Think juicy steaks, generous roasts, fresh seafood (much of it sourced from Brixham) and specials that change daily to reflect the best of the market.

Cauliflower steak with tahini sauce is a must for vegetarians, but the highlight of the menu has to be beef steaks and burgers fresh off the josper grill with your choice of decadent sauces, ideally paired with a vintage red!

Be sure to save room for dessert too... with the likes of eton mess and passionfruit souffle on offer you won’t want to miss out.

Amazing restaurant! The service was top notch and the food was world class. We book more upmarket restaurants via First Table because that way you can really splash out on a high quality meal, and the River Grille did not disappoint. We had the bread selection, the king prawns and scallops as starter, the chicken and lamb to follow, and the cheese board plus the best Eton Mess ever.
I had the impression they did not get many bookings via FirstTable, as only the restaurant manager knew to discount the food. She dealt with that swiftly and efficiently though.

Fantastic 3 course meal at The River Grille. The food was beautifully cooked and presented and the staff were extremely attentive.

It was our first Wedding Anniversary and the staff made it extra special by presenting us with chocolate dipped Strawberries with an anniversary message written alongside in chocolate and complimentary bubbly!

A perfect way to celebrate!!!

Starters of cauliflower soup, pork cheeks and scallops were all very good.

The mains were seafood skillet, lamb rump and ox cheeks which were all flavoursome, well-presented and good sized-portions. The bread with the seafood was a bit dry and the sides were a bit expensive.

Desserts were chocolate fondant, passionfruit souffle and custard pannacotta. These were slightly on the small side and the souffle was sour for my taste but the other two desserts were enjoyed.

The restaurant was relatively quiet given we were the first diners but there was still a good atmosphere with the company, ambience and background music and the service was attentive overall.
