We celebrated a friend's 40th birthday here and cannot praise enough! Not coming from Bristol i was tasked with finding somewhere suitable for 14 people inc Vegan and a 14yr old! After reading the reviews on here i decided to give it a try. Stephanie was great from the very beginning of my enquiry, advising what we can have and... More

Quirky and cute place, quite small, super friendly staff and even nicer cocktails, a little cold but fine once plenty of people there. We didn't get to eat but the food and menu looked amazing, definitely recommend and probably best to book as it gets very busy at the weekend.

I went here for a drink with my partner, we sat on the top deck and it was just so pretty at night time. The harbour looked lovely and lit up. The restaurant was very busy, there were lots of people trying to get a seat upstairs so we were lucky we managed to get one. I would def recommend... More

I love this!! Especially in the summer months, a cocktail or two on the roof is paradise! The tapas is delicious and the staff are friendly! Definitely recommend!

My boyfriend and I went to Under the Stars for a Chistmas meal; The service we received by Steph was absolutely outstanding. When we wanted drinks... she was there, our food was delayed by no longer than 10 minutes due to a large Christmas party meal, however she was keen to provide us with free goodies as compensation for our...

Went for an evening meal on account of the many positive reviews here. Ordered a pizza, courgette fritters, Mediterranean board and the house red. The passata on the pizza tasted like unseasoned, tinned tomatoes, really bland and inauthentic. The courgette fritters were underwhelming and ungenerous. The sharing board was the only part of the meal we actually enjoyed, however it... More

Perfect experience at Under the Stars. There was a good (and tasty!) range of tapas available, and the staff were friendly and very accommodating to allergies, which was much appreciated. Definitely recommend.

We were stuck as we really fancied tapas but our number one choice was fully booked so we took a punt on Under the Stars. Like others I was a bit apprehensive about the whole thing when we stepped onto the boat but actually it was probably one of the best nights with the family (wife and 2 kids) we've... More

The food was great and there was lots of it! Delicious vegan options and friendly service! We went for the chef's choice of pizza and tapas :) a really cosy little boat looking out on the harbour and it's got a lift so disabled diners can get downstairs.
