    Service was excellent, staff were generally awesome and I hate to be negative on a few dish’s as the beef and mash was delicious, the chocolate parve was great, sourdough bread was okay but overpriced. The prawns were overdone but the sauce was not bad. The duck was very average, small portion and overpriced. Chorizo and sauce was okay good for dipping. Overall average experience as few of the tapas let down the meal and it was a touch overpriced compared to other tapas restaurants we’ve visited. However I think this could be an excellent restaurant with a bit of refining.

    First time at JKs, every dish was delicious. We had 6 dishes between four of us plus some fries on the side. It was just the right amount. Cocktails were excellent. The staff were very friendly and engaged. Highly recommend it for an easy going evening with very tasty food

    Enjoyed an interesting selection of "small plate" dishes for sharing for mid-week family birthday celebration. Nice to try some dishes we might not have ordered as "full plate" option. Nice small venue for small groups. Will definitely visit again with friends.

    Fabulous little restaurant in a residential area of Bristol. Food and service was amazing with lovely little dishes full of flavour. The cocktails were great too and had a good chat with Jack the owner at the end of the night. Highly recommended.
