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!
Food and drink was nice but largely unmemorable and very small portions (even for tapas!). Staff were very attentive and could not fault the service. The location is close to central Bristol with lots of bars and nightlife- the atmosphere of the restaurant was lovely. However, considering the average quality of the food and tiny portions it is hellishly overpriced - as long as you accept you are paying for the central location and ability to continue the evening in local bars afterwards then this may be okay. However the food is not a patch on rivalling Bristol Tapas establishments such as ‘Bravas’ or ‘Under The Stars’.
The set £25pp tapas option is great but me and my partner tweaked it by choosing different options that added up to around £25pp - same value, just our preferred selection! One of the best tapas restaurant I’ve been to - can be a bit pricey for the food portions but will definitely return (the pork rib was to die for)!
Cheese board was great. Music could have been quieter.
Delicious, authentic food, friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere!
Nice place. When busy waiting for service takes time.
A lovely lunch, and attentive service. The restaurant itself felt a bit cold, but then we are in a cold snap at the moment!
An excellent evening
Value for money because we got 25% off tapas in January
Seemed a lot of money for 3 of us who left a bit hungry even with the 25% off. Couldn't afford to go there for full price
I have only given 3 stars for atmosphere as it was a very quiet Tuesday lunch time. I am sure next time I visit it will be the evening and much more lively. The food we chose and shared was very good and authentic ( I would have liked the onions cooked a little more in the tortilla), but everything else was delicious. The waiter from Menorca was efficient and we hope to come back again soon.
Had a fantastic meal with family before going to the theatre. The staff we very helpful and recommended dishes for us to try. The food was delicious. We'll be back again soon!
Lovely staff and nice atmosphere. Prompt service. Food was delicious, particularly the salmon tartar and the pisto. Some dishes seemed quite overpriced for what they were, however this was less of a problem as we went on a 25% off January deal.
Food came out a bit quickly so felt rushed but gorgeous otherwise
Had a wonderful evening at pata negra for a birthday celebration - food was delicious, atmosphere was lively but not too loud and the tapas came at a nice speed. The belly pork in particular was absolutely wonderful!
Despite having booked a table for 6 at least 2 weeks prior we arrived to find a very restricted menu because you had run out supplies. Xmas comes round every year and it shouldn't be a surprise that you are likely to be busy. Better planning would help avoid disappointment for your customers. As it was, we had one round of tapas and left to finish our meal out at another restaurant nearby. Shame because the food we did have was very nice.
Lovely. Tasty and authentic.
Service very very poor. Arrived slightly early. First thing we were told was when they wanted us to leave. By 6.30. Told kitchen not yet open. Ordered the tapas sharing platter for 2 and drinks. . Not told potatas bravas not available until they arrived with aoli instead. Not given any info at, all. No friendliness or welcome. Felt rushed and like we were in the way. Food starred to arrive rapidly and just dumped between us. A blond lad stuck his arm right across us and took an empty plate without even speaking. We didn't get asked if the food was OK or offered another drink or anything. Gave up and stacked our plates on the end of the table. He did speak this time "you finished" and took the plates before I answered. Asked for the bill and left almost in tears. I had to move out of his way again when I asked for the bill. Thank you for ruining my 23rd wedding anniversary. We were there under 40 minutes. Devastated. Yes they refunded 25% off the cost of the food but to be honest we didn't fully get what we ordered anyway... And we're rushed out the door.
Excellent food and great service, thank you.
Great food and fast and efficient service
All the staff went out of their way to make sure we were well looked after. We made a late request for extra vegetarian food very late when Kitchen had closed but they still whipped us up some an impressive spread of extras - including beautiful arancini balls. The staff were also incredibly friendly and polite - joking with our guests and making sure they were always smiling. The venue was awesome - 1st floor - we could have our music playing next to the dancefloor really loud for all those who wanted to let their hair down. But on the other side of the room by the bar, the rooms design makes it so you can't really hear the music at all - those wanting to catch up could get cosy on the sofas there and chat. The food was one of the best parts - everyone loved it. I had been it talk with the managers about the tapas feast - which mostly included bread based tapas. They also brought succulent lamb chops, a divine selection of cheeses, arancini balls, quiche, chicken wings - homemade dips like hummus and baba ghanoush with pomegranates. I could go on... All outstanding - me and my colleagues found ourselves eating more than we should because it was too delicious. The drinks were top quality - lovely spirits and amazing wines. I'm not normally a fan of Rose but their house Rose was very smooth. The bar staff were great at suggesting drinks and making them! The communication leading up to the night was great too - they made sure we were happy with everything. All in all a wonderful experience - will be booking with Mel and Pata Negra again!
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!
