About Pata Negra
Authentic Spanish Tapas & Wine Bar serving the best jamon in Bristol! 1st Floor Music Bar. 2nd Floor Function Room
Pata Negra is a bustling, Spanish tapas & wine bar in the heart of Bristol’s Old City. There’s no need to book, unless you’re bringing a party of 8 or more, and we wholeheartedly endorse our guests dropping in for a quick glass of wine or an after work sherry!
Perfect meal, lovely food, great service, will be recommending and coming back! Sharing deal for £25 where you go with their choice of dishes was great!
5 star event
Delicious food & drinks came quickly & in good portions. Service a little distracted but it was pretty busy.
Really lovely night had thank you.
Excellent choice and quality, friendly and excellent value for money.
we took friends who were down from London, we had a good evening. the biggest disappointment was the portion size and value for money. the 4 of us had the mixed tapas. the meat platter was a disappointment, had only 2 very small slices of jamon on each board, something which was supposed to be one of your signature produce. The prawn dish consisted of 2 prawns per couple [1 each]. ditto the croquettes. All in all at £25 per head, £100 for the table, we agreed that what was served was far from good value. extremely disappointed.
Worked out brilliantly. Service a bit slow, but drinks were good and we had a great time. Most of the music was great. Most!
Enjoyable evening meal
It was lovely thanks. However I did request not to have my email address on your mailing list for anything other than table confirmations. Hope you understand - I just get too much unnecessary email. Please remove my personal email details from your records. Also, for the record, you have too many T&C's! Those are my T&Cs. Thanks again.
Dinner and drinks on a regular weekend with wife. Pros:- Good atmosphere, service and location. Cons:- Although food is good, it's expensive for a tapas menu. Not value for money.
We visited the restaurant for my daughter's 21st birthday. On arrival I specifically took our waiter aside and explained that we needed the bill to be split in a certain way and therefore requested that our order was taken in two half’s. Thereby attempting to avoid any fuss at the end of the meal. We were reassured this was possible and our table put in seperate orders. At the end of the meal our bill came as one, mixing the two orders. On attempting to discuss this with the management I was subjected to a barrage of arrogance, rudeness and aggression. Never have I been spoken to in such a manner. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Mid way through making my point of view known, my partner walked up to join us and the manager, whilst I was in mid sentence, turned his back on me to address my other half. In essence dismissing me as the man has no arrived. For my daughter's special occasion to end like this was utterly shocking, I can’t believe in this day and age anyone like this man would be employed in the service industry.
I enjoyed my visit but it felt a tiny bit flat - maybe because it wasn’t very busy. I also wonder if this is more of a bar than a restaurant (I’m not I to bars) so could just be me.
The food was delicious (particularly the sobrasada!) and we were sat at a lovely booth. It would be good if the menu gave more of an idea of how big each of the dishes would be. There was a great selection of food The staff were friendly and helpful.
We both loved the atmosphere, food , the great service and the never ending cava (tapas n cava Sunday) ....will be booking again .
Overall it was a good experience, however I would say there could have been more food! Left after the bottomless brunch still feeling hungry...having done quite a number of Bristol venue bottomless brunches in comparison I would say the portions are a little small (I realise its tapas) :-) good cava and what we did eat was yummy
Went there for their Sunday bottomless brunch. The tapas was excellent and the cava just kept coming! Can't recommend it enough.
Great food, does Spanish tapas justice! Will certainly be back
Flawless. Perfect all round.
Great service f- easy booking online . Had light lunch prior to theatre - we were very early so restaurant was empty. Great service and lovely food
Portions were tiny - even for tapas, cocktails were limited and expensive, house wine vinegary and the service terrible. service charge was included in the bill and not discretionary. The waitress ignored our table so many times to serve another party who came into the restaurant after us. She would giggle each time she past because she thought it was funny!! I won’t be returning.
Good food and friendly staff
We attended as a 'team get together' for the Bottomless Cava Brunch. We were made to feel very welcome. The service was very good and relaxed. The food was gorgeous and enjoyed by everyone in the party. It was certainly worth the money and I would come back again.
We had a great time celebrating a birthday, and had chosen Pata Negra some months ago. The service was excellent, as was the food and location. A perfect evening was completed in the bar upstairs.
Disappointing visit. Service was not as good as we expected. We had heard good things about the food and the restaurant but we were disappointed after our visit. We had ordered the pork belly dish, which did not come. By the time we were able to get a waiter’s attention it was 20 minutes since our last tapas dish had come, therefore we were not in the mood to try the pork belly any more (not that this mattered as it wasn’t coming anyway). Then when we ordered desert, we were told 10 minutes later that the ice cream we wanted was not in stock, this should have been said to us when we ordered. Then it took about 20 minutes to get the waiter’s attention so that we could pay the bill. Overall, I don’t believe enough staff were working for a Friday night. The restaurant was full and it looked as though there was only 1 waiter for the entire restaurant.
Recommended by a friend, so glad we went. Brilliant atmosphere, vibrant and friendly,
