A self-confessed seafood aficionado, I jumped at the chance to visit Fishers in Clifton Village. Just a short walk from Bristol's striking suspension bridge and yawning gorge, Fishers has been a staple of the city's seafood scene since 2001. Its porthole menu, mounted outside, is an unmistakable sign of what's in store.

Every table was taken during our visit - testament to the quality on offer and denoting Fishers' loyal following. Stripes, sails and fishermen's lanterns embellish the rustic yet smart decor and we felt like two lucky seafarers devouring grilled sardines sprinkled with fennel and half a kilo of sizeable River Fowey mussels in cider. The emphasis here is on fresh, simple fare and Fishers' talented chefs work their magic on daily catches, often unwrapping Cornish red mullet or oysters straight from rocky Irish shores.

As Cliftonians hurried by, we were afforded a prime opportunity to enjoy the restful ambience. Perusing the menu, the popular grilled lobster soon took my fancy, while my friend plumped for the sea bass with crab risotto, with a soft Spanish rosé. A dark chocolate and Calvados mousse with a chewy handmade macaroon was the ideal finish. What a find for this pair of piscine prowlers - definitely one of the most fabulous fish suppers to be found in the city.
