Great atmosphere and lovely setting seated outside. Food was delicious!
Lovely find. Staff are friendly and were made to feel very welcome. Menu isn't too big and what we ordered was made to a high standard. Staff are local, knowledgeable and professional. Really enjoyed our night.
Friendly staff, lovely food, great selection of drinks and fantastic atmosphere. Highly recommend this lovely local restaurant x
Absolute gem of a place! Truly blown away by the food. Lovely staff, all round great service…can’t wait to go back
Amazing, wish the garden was open later as it is 30 degrees in Bristol. Amazing staff, cocktails and food A+++++
We didn’t have a food but food that was delivered to near by tables smelt and looked really nice. Drinks were good, lasted a while. Good value. Good atmosphere. Quaint little place.
Amazing service, friendly with good vibes, food and cocktails were fab. Really made our evening.
Can't wait to return
Amazing service & cocktails!! Highly recommend to everyone!
Excellent, friendly service. The food was lovely and the choice of gins went down well!
A little gem of a restaurant, which we will be revisiting soon.
Great food, great cocktails and great service. We'll be back again!
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.
Good food and cocktails. Off the main road so a good destination in Staple Hill.
We felt that JK offered a different experience from the usual curry or Italian restaurants. It was trendy, had a buzz and great atmosphere, almost felt like we were on holiday. The staff were great and the cocktails were fab.
Thoroughly enjoyed the night

All food was delicious and portion sizes were very generous. Great night, great cocktails. Highly recommend this place, no need to go into the centre of Bristol!
Everything from the food and drinks to the service was phenomenal.
Will definitely be going back.
We sat in the
Love this place. Lovely food and attentive staff. Every visit is a pleasure 🥰
Jack was so friendly and welcoming! The food was delicious and cocktails were superb! Can’t wait to come back again. 😀
Pre fathers day gathering. Really enjoyed ourselves.
Cozy little restaurant, amazing food, great service, music a bit too loud but will definitely go back again. I loved the cod fishcakes.
Lovely food, lovely cocktails, lovely staff, lovely place! My first time here and I will be back. We are very lucky to have this place locally.
Amazing to back after being locked down, menu options are tasty, all the staff are on the ball with customer service, amazing owners, good to catch up, look forward to our next visit
Fantastic food, excellent cocktails and friendly staff all added up to a really enjoyable experience. There's not a huge choice of dishes to choose from but I'd far rather have a somewhat limited menu that is cooked and presented with excellence (which this was) than a large menu resulting in mediocre food. Just one tip for the staff if you don't mind - cast your eyes over the tables regularly as it was difficult to attract attention when we wanted something. That nitpicking aside we were really, really pleased with our meal and will definitely be coming back.
All the food we ate was excellent- beautifully presented. Our compliments to the chef. Great service from Isaac - many thanks. Think their business would be enhanced with addition of a dessert menu. Plus also to have coffee etc. Isaac advised a dessert menu was being developed. We will be going back. We wish Jack & Isaac and all involved every success with this business.
Such a warm welcome from Jack and the team. Great decor, modern with an industrial feel and some quirky twists including a great feature photo of Jack’s adorable dogs. Table distance is appropriate to not feel squashed and the furniture echoing the feel of the decor.
Menu choice was pleasing without being overwhelming and the food is high quality, well cooked and presented - totally delicious. Fab cocktails - wow. Book it, be pleasantly surprised with what lies behind the glass door on a row of shops! We loved the personal approach and we’ll deffo be back. Spot on.
The food was excellent, the service was outstanding. Couldnt do enough to make are experience there a pleasurable one. Highly recommended I say.
Very small portions of food for price expected a decent size portion of chips to share between 2 people for the price
Staff very friendly
A lovely new addition to Downend with great food in a cosy setting that provided an enjoyable night out. The tapas options weren't extensive but what is available was perfectly cooked and well presented; sufficient options to cater for vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. A good selection available at the bar with a nice variety of gins to work through. Had to remind the server about a drinks order but an apology and discount were promptly offered so more than content. A cosy setting inside (out the back looked well decked out) that created a really nice atmosphere with a good selection of music playing throughout the night at just the right level. Would definitely recommend to others looking for some decent tapas at a good price!
I recommend this restaurant, the drinks were beautiful to look at and delicious and the staff were very friendly. I understand this is a newly opened restaurant so there's a couple things that may need a bit of work. For instance, the food was good but could be a bit more polished, e.g. Sauteed chorizo could have been cooked more for a thicker sauce, chips could do with some seasoning. Also, the grime music and change in genres was a bit jarring for a restaurant, could maybe do with a solid playlist to make the experience more fluid and laid back.
Overall, I still recommend it, just has a few learning curves for a newly opened restaurant.
Really great bar with friendly service and amazing food/cocktails
Whilst the outside space is nice, you need to walk all the way around the houses to get in there rather than walking through the restaurant.
The waitress that took our cocktail order, didn’t know anything about how the cocktails were made / what was in them.
The cocktails where syrupy and sickly.
Wouldn’t rush back!
Great food, attentive and friendly staff, good value for money. Definitely worth visiting regularly
lovely evening good food and service with a smile would have liked dessert and coffee though
tapas was very good especially ham hock & piccalilli
