Great venue with interest and lots of seating choices. Love the addition of the table tennis tables, table football and of course outdoor bar with dj - great music and great location to view the centre of Bristol from above.

The food was delicious and came out nice and quick. Enjoyable atmosphere with a cosy rooftop bar and endless fun on ping pong and table football!

Service was good but felt a little rushed. I don't think an hour and 15mins slot is long enough for an evening out! Food excellent though.

Main meal (BABs) were gorgeous but the restaurant was so cold we couldn't feel our hands and feet by the end of the meal! The service was very slow overall and it took over 20 minutes for ice cream to arrive which was given to us free but the chocolate ice cream (which they said they had to go downstairs for) was breaking apart and not worth the money. It tasted cheap like it had been bought in a nearby shop which I reckon it had considering the time it took and the poor quality compared with the salted caramel which was very rich and luxurious tasting. Altogether not a great experience which was a shame.

Great New Year's Eve party, we had a terrific time. Location is very nice as well, with the terrace overlooking the square and the harbour in the background. Friendly staff and good food, we recommend it.

New Years Eve, a great place to bring in the New Year, love the outside area. The welcome drink, food and atmosphere was great. Only slight downside was the length of time to be served at the bars, difficult I guess when the bars are quite small. Overall a great night, thank you.

the floor waitresses were very welcoming however some of the bar team could smile to the customers more often :) When it comes to the booking process Viola made everything very smooth and easy also thanks to her great customer service however when it comes to the logistics Bambalan could have a better booking process in place and a more smartphone friendly website

Our booking was for 1930, we had to wait 30 minutes for our table and most of that time was spent queuing at the bar. We were split over 3 tables although nobody had told me that would be the case at the time of booking. The place was clearly under-staffed and some of those who were working clearly did not want to be there.
