Poor seafood restaurant. Painfully slow service. We had to endure a unfriendly chippy and arrogant waiter who from the state of his dirty top looked like it had rushed from a side hustle job in the local oily garage (yes you mr short man with...the poor attitude and unsmiling face). You really do wonder why people like that chose a career in customer facing hospitality....... Our fish when it eventually arrived was poorly and overly cooked and totally unremarkable in execution. We had to chase the bill several times, and getting it paid required another long wait. The tables upstairs are placed way to close together, and the place needs a refurb and a good clean. This is another one of those totally unremarkable eateries where the tone of many reviews do not match the poor and unremarkable dining experience.More

We had a lovely meal to celebrate my wife's birthday. Started with scallops and then had monkfish and seabass. Service was good and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely return next time we stay in Bristol.

This is perhaps the best fish restaurant we have visited. Extremely good food and convivial hosts in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We went twice it was so good. I had perfect scallops and mackerel first night and then stone bass the next night which, as...recommended, was hugely tastier than sea bass and beautifully cooked. Any time we're near Bristol at dinner time we'll be back.More

We had an absolutely fabulous meal at Fishers. As we live in Swansea unfortunately we can’t get to the restaurant as often as we’d like too. The choice was amazing - too amazing really as it took us ages to decide on what we wanted....Eventually hubby went for the mussels for a starter and skate wing for the main. I went for the scallops as the starter and mussels as the main. All dishes were superb - the only slight criticism was that the skate wing was much smaller than usually served but hey ho. Staff were fantastic. The young lady who served us for most of the time had met us at the door and was an asset to the restaurant. Unfortunately I don’t know her name.More

I have visited this restaurant a few times previously when away on business. This evening I arrived having received some very sad news on my walk to the restaurant. I was welcomed with all the usual friendliness I’ve grown to appreciate from Fishers but with...an extra layer of kindness from Mitzy and co this evening. As always the food was incredible. See you next time. Thank you so much. 🙏. Jo.More

The place was dirty, we sat to start of alone , placed upstairs but the loo...waste bin which was waste height was full, the shared loo was battered chipped and very dirty.More

Staying in Bristol and needed somewhere for a couples dinner based around fish. We all enjoyed our chosen meals. Service was decent but not exceptional. Overall on the pricy side for what we had but good quality.

Like the others said, depending on your age and ability/desire to walk, a no. 8 bus or a taxi is the best bet. Enjoy your meal there though. The food will be worth it.
