Stopping in the nearby Novotel, popped in after drinks in the pubs next door. Our two pizzas were very nice and our daughter had the 3 course Christmas meal with drinks the whole bill was £60 which we thought was good value for money. Busy as one would expect on a December Saturday night the staff were still pleasant and... More

Went there with my wife on her recommendation. Food was awesome, they were out of limoncello but the waiter recommended Mirto as alternative, which was great. Will be returning when in Bristol again.

Is a small,very cosy Italian restaurant (from Sardines). I went there on my own and I was well impressed. Great choices of food and wine. My meal was heaven and my pudding was huge and so yummi. Price wise not too expensive. Service was outstanding. When I come back to Bristol. Defently going back there

Went to collect a takeaway pizza. My friend paid the usual price of £4.95. When I went to order a gluten free Pizza she told me it would be £8.95. I asked why and she said 'because we make our own dough.' Her tone was incredibly brash. I was really confused why I was expected to pay double for a... More

My friend and I went to visit for dinner, only to be questioned by the hostess on the door in no other words than "what do you want?" Then after politely asking for a table for two we were told in the rudest fashion they were full. ( "It's Christmas, book in future" ) After wanting to try the restaurant... More

We hadn't book for our Saturday night meal but we got a good table at the rear of the ground floor by the fire. The food was good as was the service. Our waitress Chelsie was funny and friendly with a high five from here due to my partner's preference for cider. When I previously had lunch with a work... More

We visited without a reservation and were comfortably seated downstairs. The menu was extensive and food was well presented. Sicilian food is their specialty. The waitresses were attentive to our needs.

My partner and I had dinner at Marcos as a celebration meal. The venue looks nice from the outside, and was fine inside too - it has a lovely big curved corner window, which we sat in and was lovely. However, our first impression was marred by the terrible waitress that served us (her name was Chelsie). She was blunt,... More

The food was ok, we had 2 pizzas so how hard can that be? But to their credit the food was nice. I just felt incredibly uncomfortable in the place, the staff 9" younger ladies) that i assume must be the owners, or family of the owners as they were speaking in italian the entire time. It was also quite... More
