About the restaurant
With jamón ready to carve, padrón peppers roasting over the wood fire & sherry straight from the barrel let us transport you to Andalusia.

Our ever changing menu combines traditional tapas with personal interpretations from Michelin starred Chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias, whilst staying true to the vibrant and comforting flavours of his heritage.

No tapas bar is worth its salt without a carefully crafted sherry list - just ask Paco! So, we've handpicked ours, and offer them by the glass, bottle or shaken into the finest cocktails.

Thanks to all our amazing suppliers & team we are realising another Sanchez Brothers dream - A modern tapas bar bringing a taste of Andalusia to Bristol. Whether you're coming para picar, for a glass of sherry or a tapas feast we can't wait to see you!

About the restaurant
Reimagining their much-loved restaurant, Casa will offer a contemporary, accessible, yet refined take on traditional Italian dining, acting as a sibling to Peter’s Michelin-starred Spanish institution Paco Tapas next door. The 66-cover restaurant will offer a similarly relaxed environment in which to enjoy a dynamic menu created by Peter and Executive Chef Joel Breakwell.

Dishes will be made using high quality ingredients from the very best Italian and British producers, working with many of the same local suppliers that the team have partnered with for years. As a nod to the original Casamia

About the restaurant
We are located at 203 B Cheltenham Rd The Arches Bristol BS6 5QX

Koocha was founded in 2018 as Bristol’s first totally vegan restaurant – a plant pioneer, we’ve led the way for animal-free cuisine across the city.

What really sets us apart though is the big, unexpected and delicious spices and flavours from Persia and the Middle East that infuse every dish in our bountiful menu.

Our food is as fresh as it comes, sourced locally and sustainably, everything is made from scratch by our talented team. And whether you’re vegan or not, we pride ourselves on our seductive fare – even the most devout meat eaters have declared their love after a meal at one of our tables.

First time there, decor is fabulous (the ladies loo is well worth a visit despite the rather long walk!), staff very friendly, service excellent, food would have got a 5 star but for the creme brulee not being crispy on top. Good value too.
