Converted from the former headquarters of Bristol's river police, directly on the harbourside, riverstation is one of the city's most stylish eating establishments. The building has won several national and civic awards for its bold modern architecture; the dramatic use of planar glass, marble and stainless steel accentuates the uncompromisingly bright and contemporary feel.
The upper-floor restaurant offers menus that combine innovative creativity with dependable favourites, changing on a daily basis depending on the availability of fresh, local ingredients. Open every day of the week for lunch, early evening 'café hour' and Ã la carte supper, there is also daytime brunch service at the weekend and a bargain Sunday lunch (just £18.75 for three courses). The wine list is thoughtful and wide ranging, with prices that encourage experiment, and the service is friendly, informal and efficient.
riverstation's bar+kitchen, on the ground floor of the bold, modern building on the harbourside has emerged as one the city's finest bars. With its open kitchen, sumptuous leather sofas, and enviable waterfront location, it's ideal for drinks, with or without food, at any time.
