Reviews

It as a rainy Friday night and we came in from the cold to be greeted with a warm ambiance radiating from the staff and settings. We went for the smaller plates and treated it like tapas which turned up looking like an abstract work of art on each plate. There were some food combinations that were new to the taste buds and certainly some tastes that I'd like to get more familiar with! The aim was to watch the Balloons fly over from the Balloon Festival...but with that being cancelled we had one better with the balloon shaped doughnuts that you could inject your own sauces too! Definitely a firm 7/7!

Absolutely amazing food. Couldn't fault it. Especially the 12 hour beef rib which literally fell apart. Amazing!! Even the chips were incredible! The syringe your own doughnuts were also beautiful and fresh which myself and my partner shared but could have eaten again!!! The only problem with the dive-bombing that wanted a piece of our beef rib but that was probably our fault for sitting outside combined with the irresistible beef! Will definitely be returning again. Thank you!

Having been to Brace & Browns a few times we were very impressed with what Harbour & Browns has managed to achieve with a significantly smaller space.

The vibe is relaxed and informal, without the canteen style feel you can sometimes get in a place this size.

The service was attentive without being overbearing.

We started with the olives and sweet peppers which were excellent. I had the short-rib for a main which I had heard a friend rave about and I was definitely not disappointed, the meat fell off the bone but still had sufficient texture (the accompanying honey glaze and bloody mary sauce were on point). My partner has the fish of the day and found it delicious. These dishes were complemented brilliantly by the tenderstem broccoli and hand cut parmesan sundried tomato chips. All of this was washed down with a great bottle of red.

All in all it was a fantastic experience and the team should be highly commended. We can't wait to return!

Lovely, comfortable and relaxed setting with a modern touch. The food was HEAVENLY! I can highly recommend the beef rib (if its still on the menu) and the doughnuts were a real treat. Great friendly service. An all round perfect evening out. Book a table... you won't regret it.

I chose harbour & browns as I haven't been to Whapping warf for dinner before and wanted to take my friends there who were visiting Bristol, the food was excellent, so much flavour and the portion sizes were so generous. Really lovely editor who gave great suggestions for what was on the menu. Highly recommend this for groups of friends or even a nice date! Can't wait to go again!!

Arrived slightly late for our reservation due to traffic hold ups, but the staff were sympathetic and welcoming upon instant arrival. My friend and I received continuous friendly attention from the staff, informative details regarding the menu and understanding for our needs. I can’t fault our dining experience here and both agreed that we’d definitely return. We both shared the Camembert starters, followed by Thai curry & Fish tacos. Both were exceptionally tasty!!! Finally, we ventured to try the Avocado & Pistachio cheesecake. We were not disappointed in the slightest, gorgeous creamy texture and delicate, sweet taste...just enough to satisfy our overall tastebuds. If you read this review, please try this cute, cosy restaurant because I’m not one to write reviews. This must’ve really impressed me! ps. The staff even observed I ran out of tacos for my fish so offered me more, to me, this is screaming “Customers are a Priorty”.

WOW! What an absolutely incredible meal and dining experience...! The food was exceptional with the beef rib one of the the tastiest dishes I have eaten this year. The setting is fantastic too with an amazing buzz from all the surrounding venues and a lovely outside seating area. All combined with friendly and attentive service I can highly recommend Harbour and Browns and will be back there myself again very soon.

Fabulous early evening delicious tapas. They had set a lovely table for us by the window in the small classy indoor area of the upper floor restaurant but were very welcoming and more than happy we move to an outside table in the sunshine. With a quirky bottle of rosemary water plus gin & tonics we chose 5 of the 'small plates' to share. We were impressed with flavours and presentation to go with our girly chats ..would be fab for a date night too. Will be back.

The food, location and service were all really great. We were able to have the table for an hour a half which was great, as had anticipated we may feel rushed. We opted for the small plates and a lot of them given the bargain we were having. All of the foood was delicious and would recommend to anyone, especially the prawns.

This a really nice little intimate restaurant with a great location.
