Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely vibe at this small Clifton village Tapas Restaurant. Regularly updated menu with many Tapas dishes based on different countries local cuisine. We sampled Mozambican on the evening of our visit - not a region of the world’s cuisine we had previously sampled. Portions are...typical Tapas, on the smaller side, so best order 2-3 each. This made it perfect for our party with a variety of appetites, but who nevertheless appreciated really inspired (and inspiring) nutritious food. Each dish emanating from what looked like a Tapas-size kitchen, was cooked to perfection . Service attentive (even when extremely busy). Bravo.More

Our evening was outstanding ! We come from Paris and are often vey demanding when it comes to an evening out. We are so impressed with the quality of the ingredients and the refined flavour of the dishes. The new cook, Vincent and his team...is fabulous. The service and ambiance (music and decoration) are simply perfect. If you are lucky enough to get a table, don’t hesitate to reserve and climb the hill to New Moon Tapas!More

We had a really great dinner here! They had their standard menu and a specials menu of Peruvian themed dishes - everything we ordered was delicious, and the cocktails were also great.

Disappointing experience last night, not going to go into loads of detail but the level of service was very poor, eg waited for 25 mins before drink received, had to remind waiter I had ordered wine. Seemed very chaotic and alot of things overlooked. I...was however very pleased that the team recognised there were issues and on presenting me the bill had already taken 20% off and made apologies for the sun standard service.More

Everything about this place is amazing. The location, the decor, the welcome/service and the food…. Just perfect. We tried a good variety of options and all were cooked to perfect. The prawns were just so good and the beef melted in the mouth. We highly...recommend this restaurant and can’t wait to come on another road trip to visit again. Thank youMore

The food was absolutely amazing, very good quality and everything was so tasty. The staff was very nice and kind, we wanted another portion of bravas but we didn't realise about the time and the kitchen was just closed, but they made it anyway knowing...that my partner was pregnant.

Came with my boyfriend and had a great experience. The aubergine rolls are one of my favourites - have had them here before, but this time the vegetable pakoras from the specials menu really stole the show. Great little place, love the decor as well.

We have been to New Moon Tapas a few times and the service has always been good, and the food always delicious. Unfortunately, during our last visit the service was extremely poor. We booked as a table of 4, two of us got one of...our dishes very quickly which is fine, and the other two continued to wait. About 15 minutes went by, and another person got one of their dishes. The service continued like this for about 45 minutes, but one of our table had not received any dishes. We asked the waiter, and were told that they arrive as they are ready. We explained that we have all had ours and this person had not had any, and were told that this is because the dishes this person has ordered take a little longer to cook. We went with it, and we all had to start eating as our food was going cold. Over an hour passed since we sat down, and the 3 of us had now finished all of our tapas. We asked the waiter again, and eventually. our 4th table member started to receive their food. We did not receive an apology or an explanation, and I don't feel the excuses were genuine as he had ordered 3 different dishes and they can't all have taken over an hour to cook. It ruined our evening as we all had to eat really slow to ensure this person wasn't eating on their own, and by the time the 4th person had eaten, the restaurant was empty and felt as it was closing. We didn't even get offered desert or coffees after. Overall, a really disappointing experience.More

Would like to know why when we arrived for our booking on the evening 9th (which had been confirmed via email the day before) the restaurant was shut and no one had made any effort to let us know there was a problem. I understand...sometimes unexpected events can mean a business needs to change its opening hours but a courtesy email before we traveled into Bristol wouldn’t have gone a miss…More
