Poco Tapas

We get it - December was full on right? The mince pies, the roast dinners, the chocolates - not to mention the cocktails! Sometimes it's good to take a break from all the heavy meals and skew our eating towards more healthy and sustainable meals. Meat eater or vegan? Don’t worry, we’ve got something for you.

1) The Metropolitan

The Metropolitan

Opening in December 2022, The Metropolitan has taken over the former site of Cafe Du Jour. Citing a strong culinary Asian influence with an abundance of fresh ingredients, the food is refined and clean, the portions generous and highlighting humble local seasonal wonders such as coal-roasted leeks or squash curry.

The quality extends beyond the food with local roasters Clifton Coffee providing the beans for some seriously tasty hot drinks. We look forward to sunny days in the soon-to-be-completed back patio sipping on something fresh…


Dish to order? Steamed line fish.

Where? 72 Whiteladies Road, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 2QA.

2) Pasture


A strong contender for the best steak restaurant in the city, Chef Sam Elliott’s Pasture puts the work into making sure that each mouthful is as delicious as it is healthy. While South West steak dominates the menu, the fish is also wonderful and speaks to the value the team put on provenance. I mean really, how many steak restaurants have their own farm @buttercliffe_farm?


Dish to order? Go for your choice of beef cut, or the Cornish Mussels.

Where? 2 Portwall Lane, Bristol, BS1 6NB.

3) Eat Your Greens

Ran by Chef Babs, EYG is a cosy and charming place that organises regular supper clubs, alongside functioning as a casual brunch/ coffee spot with the star of the show - The Beasty (vegan full English). When it’s sunny, take your food outside and soak in some rays.

Where? 156 Wells Rd, Totterdown, Bristol BS4 2AG.
