We spent a very nice evening at Wilks. The food was of high quality, the presentation appealing (still dreaming of the lovely merengue sphere dessert). The wine pairing was excellent, the sommelier did a very good job. The staff was attentive and friendly. We’ll definitely...More

A casual French restaurant with Michelin star at a rather off-centre location. Good food, nice service, very reasonable & affordable prices for such good quality food. Wine pairings by restaurant also appealing. Hope to go again next time in Bristol.

This is the second time I've been to Wilks but the first since their Michelin star. The decor has changed a lot and so has the number of staff and level of service, which is as you'd expect excellent. There were some stand out moments...More

We made sure to book in advance - a warm, sunny Saturday was forecast and we anticipated lots of others would have lightbulb moments and opt to sink into the arms of local, Michelin-starred luxury. In the event, however, when we arrive on the dot...More

They are a popular restaurant. We went at a weekend and booking was essential. You might be lucky during the week but I wouldn't chance it myself!
