We can’t say how much it means to us when people take the time to leave us with their feedback. As a local, independent restaurant – it really does make all the difference. Here are a couple of ones that have really made us smile…

When so many restaurants close it is re-assuring that Fishers is still here. Perhaps that is because they are very very good at what they do.

Went to visit for our anniversary – was wonderful. There was a lovely cosy atmosphere, the staff were (an Irish lad*) perfectly attentive. The food was fabulous – so pleased to have such a selection of gluten free food as a coeliac! We opted for a shellfish platter with the white wine pairing and the GF brownie – I’m still dreaming of it!

Wow what a find, Fishers was recommended to us and rightfully so, a wonderful varied menu focusing mainly on seafood makes the choice difficult fun, the food is served beautifully and promptly by friendly staff in the buzzing yet relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant in the heart of Clifton village.

We dropped in just by chance, all ten of us! We’d been tempted by the offer of £9 main after 9pm at night. My Spanish pals and I were looked after by super-friendly, smiling and helpful staff. The fish dishes we chose were all cooked perfectly and were delicious. I can’t rate this place highly enough.

This was truly a complete eating experience. Highly recommended, the best food I’ve had in Bristol accompanied by a very palatable bill.
