I went back to this place just before xmas and I thought it was a different place! I was not impressed and felt the food was pretty average and uninspiring. A while ago I thought it was great but now it seriously lacked a sparkle, despite the festive season. Quite disappointing....
Despite the reviews it is great for students, they do not offer a student discount.

Visited here for nachos. £7 for a tiny bowl of nachos! The gauacamole/salsa dishes were about the size of a 50p piece wide. The sour cream was like clotted cream and it was overall very bad service and we were extremely disappointed.

Bristo is just great for a couple of drinks and some food! The staff is really friendly which contributes to the atmosphere of the place and the cocktails are fantastic. It's in a brilliant location and I would definitely recommend it to anyone I know.

This place is brilliant for students, being so close to the uni campus and the prices are very reasonable. There is also a great atmosphere both day and night, making it a lovely place to go with friends. I would recommend to anyone!

My colleagues and I came for lunch and were really happy with our meals. Great taste and excellent value. A good vegetarian selection too. Staff were very friendly and attentive.
