I went to this restaurant last week to meet up with two friends who live some distance from me. We like to meet and have a special meal every 6 months. This experience did not disappoint! Two of us had a tasting menu which was sublime. Proper seasonal local food presented brilliantly and so flavoursome. I can't recommend this enough. Despite being at least 100 miles away from all three of us, we will be back!
Really enjoyed our experience. Had a taster menu and a wine flight. The wines and food were explained in great detail which was wonderful.
Mixed bag with some elements of dishes good and some not so good. Friendly service but overall disappointing meal.
I really enjoy the food at this restaurant. A lot of thought and effort goes into each dish. I was a little disappointed with the tasting menu, which I did not rate as highly as the A la Carte dining I have experienced at Adelina Yard previously. But, on the whole, a very good meal.
The food and the service were exquisite . The courses were creative and original and the flavour combinations really worked.
My suggestion for improvement is that they need to work on making portion sizes identical when people in the same party are ordering the same dish.
Amazing food Great service Felt very special good value Can recommend very highly They deserve Michelin star!
We loved Adelina Yard - highly recommend! Cool music too and passionate staff who care about the food they serve!
great restaurant, fantastic serviced the food was very good. Good value for money . Lovely relaxed atmosphere. The cheesecake was a real winner......
We had the tasting menu on a Wednesday night with an added course from the a-la-carte menu (venison tartare) which was the best course of the evening. Overall the meal was great with only one course in particular missing the mark. This was our second visit and we were quite pleased with the food, service and ambience. We will definitely return as the menu changes with the season. This is a good spot for some creative food at reasonable prices. The food is definitely more refined compared to other similar establishments without venturing into Michelin star territory.
Had a lovely family dinner & as before absolutely loved the menu & food & wine.
Had a little bit of a long wait between our cheese course & dessert which considering the time was a little inconvenient but overall a wonderful experience & would highly recommend to friends & family :-)
The chef tasting menu was outstanding- food was excellent!
Outstanding food, we had the tasting menu that is probably the best food that I've ever had, the tastes were amazing and made all the better by the descriptions and explanations given by the chef each time another tasty morsel was delivered. Typical Bristol so nice and relaxed atmosphere with friendly people, if you are in Bristol you must go.,
I would say this is fine dining for beginners: really nice but a little way to go before excellence is achieved!
Really excellent food, well explained by enthusiastic chef. Good value and good quality house wines.
Absolutely stunning. Amazing value love that the chefs serve the food and really good quality ingredients and portions. Tasting menu is a must all day every day; would 100% return - thank you for a great evening! Should be a Michelin star ⭐️
Friendly staff, good food nice place well worth going
Anniversary treat and went for the Tasting menu with wines to match. A truly fabulous experience to the senses. The raw scallops with almond puree a delight and the dessert of Yorkshire rhubarb completely delicious. The pre dinner nibbles and petit fours also to die for! All in all a wonder experience. The wines described with much knowledge and went so well with all the dishes. Excellent service throughout.
Delicious food and such lovely staff - perfect in every way
Gem of a restaurant on Welsh Back, in Bristol's historic harbour district. This was my second visit and it didn't disappoint. The food is imaginative, beautifully prepared and delicious (each dish is also presented in person by the chef, which is a nice touch). The dining room is narrow and can lack a bit of atmosphere when it isn't busy, but I'm quibbling as I doubt it's often quiet. This restaurant warrants the good reviews and I'll definitely be back.
Fantastic find! This place is year old and is totally authentic, the food is fantastic and we had a superb evening here with no rushing and some lovely little chefs specials. It is a special experience and would thoroughly recommend.
Great innovative takes on seasonal foods. I like the way the chefs attend turntable and explain what the food is and why they've done it in a particular way. The ethos of using every part of an ingredient and wasting nothing is great.
Very professional and friendly service. Outstanding food - I particularly liked how enthusiastic the chefs were about explaining each course. We celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary with a meal there and it was a wonderful evening.
Very innovative dishes, nice environment.
Service is just awful. Food was good, with mains better than the starters. But taking into account the price in Bristol, it's a rip off
An enjoyable meal & very nice to have the interaction with the chefs on each of the dishes. Some total standouts that were both interesting & delicious.
I found the service generally efficient but not warm or friendly - very different from our usual Bristol experiences. Although we had advised in advance that it was a birthday meal, this was also ignored.
We went for the first time on valentines and had their set tasting menu and were not disappointed. Having experienced tasting menus where we left feeling the flavours and colours were all interesting and worth discussing but still that it was on the micro side Adelina Yard delivered it all.... full flavours, delicate flavours, exciting tastes and combinations and yet good portion sizes and I left feeling I didn't need to eat for a long time afterwards. The chef introducing each course I enjoyed as to know what some of the subtle flavours for was great. The risotto with 40 year aged Parmesan and truffle was the best risotto I have had and I do not say that lightly! While my husband loved the wagyu beef with the melting fat.... the fish with eel was also mouthwatering and I've been off fish since being pregnant. Must make a special mention to the Virgin Mary👌🏾 Spot on, made me feel so good to have a tasty non alcholhic drink. Once the baby is born we will be back as I NEED to experience the flight wine - wine paired with each course I watched others have with a little envy lol. Thanks for a superb night and loved the roses on the table for the guests to take home, it's all the little touches one remembers 😊
Simply the best Valentines meals I have ever had, and one of the best meals full stop. Superb creative food, attentive star, excellent wine pairing
My girlfriend and I went to the Valentine's Day taster menu evening. The flavour combinations on each dish was incredible. Having the staff explain each dish as it was served was a great way to see the passion each chef has for the plate they created. I can see this place getting a Michelin star soon, so get going before it hikes up the prices.
we had 3 course lunch crab starter pork main & cheese board all the food was presented beautifully & Chef came to table to explain the dish it was all delicious will definitely eat there again soon
We had an amazing dinner at Adelina Yard on Saturday. It was my birthday treat and we opted for the Chef's Tasting Menu with Wine Parings. It din not dissapoint, each course was exceptional and the wines very suited. Service was also faultless. The place has a nice chilled out ambience and we were made to feel very welcome. I would love to go back when I'm next in Bristol.
Absolute gem : Heavenly food and a pretty good albeit limited wine list .
We ate a la carte , leaving the lunch menu aside, and were delighted at all the dishes that kept coming and two hours passed without us even noticing.
The staff were appropriately attentive and knowledgeable.
This was the second time of eating here and I will be back.
This is a great little restaurant with excellent food and pleasant service. I was there with an elderly friend for lunch and we booth enjoyed the experience. Whilst not cheap overall the lunch menu is excellent value for money.
One thing - because of the wood decor I found hearing a little difficult.
Get a table near the back window to have a view over the water and boats.
I would go back.
Excellent food and service. A brilliant 25th wedding anniversary meal. Would highly recommend.
We had the taster menu and every course was delicious with distinctive flavours. The staff were very attentive and professional. One of our party was gluten free but we didn't tell them until we were ordering. They managed to offer alternatives or adapted dishes. All our party said they would definitely eat there again.
Amazing food and great touch with the chef coming to your table to outline the dish
Excellent evening meal! We went for the tasting menu along with the chosen wines. Food was beautifully presented with a well crafted mix of flavours. Varied courses, from a crab salad/terrine, egg with goats cheese sauce pot and my favourite was the pork and swede, matched perfectly with a mead. Plenty of nice wine selections along the way. Attentive and knowledgable staff. Will definitely go back
Excellent creative food in a relaxed setting. Good value tasting menu and wine list.
Attentive service and would definitely return / recommend to friends
Overall very good value for money. Service slowed when they were at capacity. Food was creative and tasty.
Great food and excellent service. We had the chef's tasting menu which had a wonderful diversity of dishes and flavours. Also excellent wine matching choices to the courses that really brought out the flavours of the food.
Amazing food and service. The tasting menu with matching wines was delicious and had some really interesting dishes on it. The staff were really helpful, attentive and knowledge about the food and wine. The atmosphere was fairly formal but also felt relaxed and friendly - just the right balance for a special occasion but not too stuffy! I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be going back there as soon as I get the chance.
