Review: Fishworks, Bristol

Bristol's Fishworks was the venue for a small birthday gathering for my boyfriend, who rather loves his fresh seafood. I wasn't in charge of organising the booking but was suitably impressed (kudos to his family) and thought it was worth a mention. We all shared starter platers and some large bowls of houmous with bread to start. The platers were a fantastic way to start our meal and whet our appetites with a little sample of everything - a glug of fish soup (served in an espresso cup, very cute), smoked salmon, a baked oyster and potted shrimp. They were fine between two but would be better for one if you're ravenous! Our orders were hindered by the fact that, it being a Monday, there was little fish about (as fishing boats don't go out on a Sunday). Saying that, the quality was very good and the flavours superb so we shouldn't complain. They also have a fish counter which means you can choose some nice fresh fish to take home to enjoy.

In short, Fishworks is a great choice if you enjoy seafood. There are a few things to keep in mind though: Don't book for Monday if you want their full selection (it was a bit of a case of "Okay, so can you tell us what we can have, please?") and it's a little pricey.
