Why we love it

The guys behind The Ox, the Milk Thistle and Pata Negra have turned their hands to something a little bit summery – and boy have they nailed it. Bambalan is a dreamy rooftop bar and restaurant that overlooks the heart of Bristol. Think fresh and healthy food: their dips and flatbreads are unreal – beautifully coloured smooth hummus, spiced beetroot, labneh and baba ganoush, contrasted with the flagship Rotisserie Chicken. Quality local beers and a range of soothing drinks are served, along with cocktails by the jug. This is perfect for a sunny day. Oh, and there's al-fresco table-tennis.

Lovely venue, with lift access and roof terrace dining facing in 3 different directions, all with great views of Bristol. Inside it's airy and relaxed, with a great menu albeit not that cheap, especially if like me you're vegan or veggie. Definitely one for special occasions!


It’s a great place. Fantastic spot particularly in the sunshine


Reallt good service once you got it. Abit annoying and confusing that you have to go to the bar to get a table, esp when the bar is really busy


It has a nice summery atmosphere, really chilled


Great decor, they sometimes have good djs on the terrace and they have table tennis!


They have table tennis!
