Only a short stroll from Bristol Temple Meads train station is the City Café Restaurant & Bar, Hilton Garden Inn’s stylish restaurant. It’s a light and airy venue thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows that run the length of the dining area, and boasts a warm and welcoming atmosphere, enhanced by light jazz music.

When it comes to the food, all dishes are freshly prepared and constructed from a variety of regional elements. The menu comprises a selection of steaks, which are dry-aged for 28 days, alongside burgers, pasta dishes and light salads. For those after a more informal meal, there is bar menu available, which features a wide range of sandwiches, paninis and pizzas and much more.

Settling down in the main dining area, we soon began the difficult task of choosing what to enjoy. My goat’s cheese and bruschetta starter was a great indication of the chefs’ skills, arriving lightly grilled and sat atop a bed of rocket, apple, pear and pine nut salad. Each component brought something new to the dish, and I was thoroughly impressed. My companion chose to begin with chicken liver pâté, which was well seasoned and delicious. It was presented in a small glass jar and paired with tangy apple and cider chutney. For the main course, I was immediately drawn to the risotto – a wonderfully creamy dish filled with roasted butternut squash, spinach and sunblushed tomatoes, and accompanied by garlic bread. Meanwhile, my friend tucked into pan-fried chicken breast, doused in white wine sauce and enhanced by potato gratin, pancetta lardons and wilted greens. Both were creatively presented and very tasty.

Although tempted by the selection of desserts, we had enjoyed our first two courses, and instead chose to sit back and sample from the extensive cocktail menu.

For those looking for a relaxed meal, afternoon tea, or to enjoy drinks on the terrace, I would recommend a visit to City Café Restaurant & Bar – visit yourself and you’ll understand why it was recently awarded the Best Food Award by the Bristol Evening Post.
