One journalist writing for the Financial Times seems to think so. Tim Hayward recently spent a couple of days sampling the delights of Bristol’s restaurants and cafes, and he described the city as having “arguably the best food scene in the UK at the moment”.
He had particular praise for Cargo, an area of the city filled with small restaurants and retail businesses housed in shipping containers. Mr Hayward mentioned Woky Ko, run by Masterchef finalist Larkin Cen, as well as Box E that only has 14 seats and specialises in British cuisine.
Another highlight for Mr Hayward was dinner at Shop 3 Bistro, a restaurant run by New Zealand chef Stephen Gilchrist and his British partner, a west country local, Kathryn Curtis. As well as being overwhelmingly positive about the three courses he ate, he was also impressed by the service.
“I should mention here that the service at Shop 3 Bistro was some of the most charming, unaffected and professional I’ve experienced in too long a time,” he wrote.
If you’re looking for something a little less high-class for your dinner, you might want to check out one of the recommendations from the Bristol Post for the city’s best burger.
Among the newspaper’s top choices are the Burger Joint, which it claims should win “on options alone”, the Oowee Diner, and the Three Brothers, which is apparently one of the best value burger joints in the city.
