I have been in Tinto lounge a couple of times, but seems to have gone downhill. I was really looking forward to a nice crisp panini, but it wasn't very nice at all. The bread was sort of chewy and like it hadn't been toasted in a grill. Hardly any filling. Generally didn't look or taste great for something so... More

It offers breakfast and light food all day in a casual atmosphere. The tables and chairs are an eclectic collection deliberately unmatched as are the photographs on the walls. It was very busy with the servers exuding hassle. It was obviously the haunt of regulars and for people to meet. I down rated the visit not because of the decor... More

A Thursday lunch with our grand-child. No hassle, quick, efficient service and a good range of light lunches to chose from - we had the courgette and bean risotto which was one of the daily specials. A glass of white wine went down well. A good every-day eatery.

We are regular diners at Tinto Lounge, usually at weekends, but found ourselves there on Monday night and looked forward to relaxed delicious meal. The place was very quiet - a third full at maximum, but the service was very poor. We waited too long for our one course main course and when we asked for bread it was finally... More

Not been here for a few years but came back for a Sunday brunch and had a great selection on the menu.

We found a used plaster in our food. We realised this towards the end of the meal when my boyfriend was chewing on what he thought was a particularly tough onion, only to spit it out and realise it was a used plaster.

I met here yesterday with four others and it was my first visit. We met at 1330 and it was really busy but we were lucky and found a table that was just being left. The menu has lots of nice options from salads/burgers/wraps/fish and a large all day breakfast section. I had the lounge breakfast and it was really... More

These Loungers restaurants were very good for the first few years when they were a local Bristol start up, building their reputation. Two sell outs later (the last to Lion Capital for £137m) and the now-large-chain (100 branches by April 2017) has rather lost its independant charm. We had breakfast here a few months ago and were disappointed. The portions... More

I have frequented Tinto ever since it opened. It has slowly been going downhill and has seemingly become too comfortable with it's now rarely changing menu. This would not usually be come a problem, but when some of the meal's are poorly executed it shows. My recent meal of a fishcake with salad, topped with a tepid poached egg came... More

Hi there So sorry you have had a bad experience with us lately. We are not an independent business so when we change our menu is out of our control- but it does usually get updated every 6 months.
