When I planned to visit Bristol after a gap of 2 years I didn’t expect to see many changes. So I was excited and glad to be visiting Bristol again as I remembered so many good things in the city that had impressed me especially the feel of being a university city, not as special as Oxford or Cambridge but plenty of students and some quality bookshops to enhance the city.
Other things to appreciate when visiting Bristol are the great and varied restaurants as well as a good supply of acceptable pubs.
This was only my second visit to Bristol so I went on the internet to look for a good restaurant. Yes, there are award-winning restaurants in Bristol and plenty of other places, which seemed equally good to add to my confusion. But then along the way, somebody recommended us to go to Jamie Oliver’s new restaurant. She said it was very popular, even on weekdays, you cant make a reservation because they have a first come first served system in operation and with the advice to come early.
In the end and with so many restaurants to choose from, we went to Jamie’s Italian Bristol, located at the top of Park Street where the famous Blackwell’s book shop used to be, which was within walking distance from where we stayed.
I graded the restaurant ten out of ten for menu, quality of food, taste, interior design, atmosphere as well as corporate branding package. For ambiance I gave it nine out of ten as the lighting is a bit too dark for me. But I recommend Jamie’s Italian in Bristol for anybody visiting Bristol for a great meal and a good night out.
