Much loved by vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, and deemed 'one of Bristol's most impressive dining propositions' by The Times, café Maitreya continues to impress. Now in its ninth year, this vegetarian restaurant is still picking up awards and accolades galore. Take the Which? Good Food Guide's recommendation and pay a visit for some 'dazzling food with attitude and edge - dishes that are light, vibrant, full of contrast and decidedly left-field'.

As you might expect, this is not your typical vegetarian fare. The menu is seasonal, creative and thoughtful, revealing classic British and French influences whilst being stylish and modern. Combinations are subtle but flavours are strong. Head chef and owner Mark Evans sources the best-quality organic and local produce, and bases dishes on what's fresh and in season. A typical meal might start with rosemary gnocchi accompanied by chestnut mushrooms and quince, followed by pied bleu mushroom, Gruyere and brazil nut tart tatin with sautéed pak choi, marinated endive and plum dressing. Dessert might be a raspberry, Champagne and rowan trifle with honeycomb caramel ice cream. Despite the awards, café Maitreya isn't pricey or pretentious. It's a modest suburban restaurant on the exotic and bustling St Mark's Road in Easton. The guiding ethos comes from the name 'Maitreya', which means 'loving kindness' in Sanskrit - come and sample this lovingly prepared food for yourself.
