Arrived at 20.40 , order taken at 20.50 no drinks or meal received by 21.15 - walked out. There seemed to be a severe lack of staff and the few there were didn't seem to be working very efficiently. Have had good meals here in past but avoid this place if it is at all busy or you could have a very long wait.Report this
The SpyGlass Bristol
23/08/2010 by Alaina_H
It’s a balmy summer’s evening. One of the first we have had since the harsh winter months earlier this year. This puts you in the mood for a relaxing evening of chilled wine, bbq food and waterside views. The perfect place to find all of this is the Spyglass Bristol. Set in the trendy Welshback area, the floating restaurant is set amongst a wealth of pubs and bars perfect after a scorcher in the sun. We opted for a table outside with fantastic views of the twinkling river, boats bobbing up and down and smiling people basking in the all too rare feeling of the late afternoon sun tingling on your face. The wine arrived, white, cold and crisp. The first sip being the start to the anticipation of the night ahead. At £9 a carafe it’s pretty easy on the pocket too. The menu is based around the laid back bbq concept where if it can be grilled, anything goes. Still with a wide selection, ranging from piri-piri chicken to Mediterranean sausages and the traditional burger, to vegetarian options such as Spanish tortilla and a wide range of fish dishes, there’s plenty to please anyone’s palate. I opted for the lamb kebabs marinated in harissa with cous cous. This worked perfectly for the bbq and took me straight to a spice aroma filled souk in Marrakesh. The harissa was the perfect accompaniment and added just the right amount of heat. My partner went for the pork ribs. Lovingly blanketed with a delicious, deep red honey and barbecue sauce, it made you want to dive straight into with no remorse. This all came with a fresh leafy dressed salad and a huge bowl of chips to share. The prices certainly match the laid back ambiance of the place, both main courses setting us back a mere £7.95 each. This is rare value for money you don’t see often these days. Not only do they have great food, the setting is in perfect unison with the casual yet refined feel the restaurant has. Peering through the palm trees inside the restaurant, a Caribbean style ‘hut’ bar offering sangria, mojitos and other cocktails. The bright yellow and orange décor giving the illusion of a hot and happy summer’s day even if the English weather is doing it’s usual gloomy rounds. The staff are equally sunny and smiley, nothing is too much trouble. The food is served as quickly as it is cooked. The SpyGlass is a gem in Bristol’s harbour side crown. Value for money, relaxed atmosphere with exceptional food and great views right from the water’s edge. Like a pina colada served in a coconut shell, it may be a bit cheesy but it makes you smile.Report this
