My partner and I visited this restaurant on a recommendation. Menu choice was pretty poor with only 4 main courses to choose from. My chicken was slightly over cooked and was quite salty although on the whole the balance of flavour was almost there.
The knowledge of staff was pretty poor too as I asked a basic question about the food and the waitress looked blank. She also forgot what size of wine my partner had ordered. Should not have been difficult to remember especially when there were only 2 other tables dining and this was on a Saturday night.
That was the other problem. There was no atmosphere in the restaurant. It was almost empty which was a shame.

We have eaten in this restaurant at least 3 or 4 times and have always been impressed by the quality and selection of food on offer on the menu. They offer a drink list and the bottles of chablis and processo they serve are fantastic. The restaurant interior is very appealing - the decor has a nice south american feel to it and the music they play is just at the right level - in some respects, you often forget that you are in the colston hall when in this restaurant. The price is very reasonable too , oh and the staff are very friendly and efficient. Don't just visit this place when you are watching a performance at the Colston Hall, visit it on special occasions too , it is a great little restaurant trust me!

We booked the H bar restaurant due to its convenience as we were attending a performance which had a 7pm start. We easily made a reservation by phone. On arrival we were shown to our table and the waiter explained that due to the early start of the performance we should order sooner rather than later so we wouldn't have to rush our food. We had 3 courses and each course was excellent. Beautiful presentation, lovely flavours and all perfectly prepared. We couldn't fault anything with the meal or the service and the icing on the cake was the exceptional value - 2 glasses of prosecco, a large glass of wine, 3 courses for 2, a coke and an espresso all for less than £60! I would definitely recommend this restaurant and we WILL be going back.
