I've been here a few times as I live locally. The food is hit and miss and sometimes you are left waiting a long time. It's probably because the restaurant has very minimal staff, but they are always friendly and if they do forget something...More

Assilah Bistro goes above and beyond what they need to do and have a really community vibe about them. After being diagnosed with BC Assilah contacted me and asked if they could hold an event to raise some much needed funds. The day was lovely...More

Description
We are a family run authentic moroccan bistro on the wells road between totterdown and knowle. Established 14 years ago we operate on a B.Y.O basis allowing the customer to bring the tipple of their choice. We use traditional moroccan recipes from tagines to meshwi and relax in the moroccan bedouin seating or the more traditional bistro seating. We can cater for large groups and belly dancing can be arranged. So come and enjoy a taste of morocco in Bristol. AS WITH ALL TRADITIONAL MOROCCAN RECIPES TAGINES DO TAKE A WHILE TO COOK SO WE WOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED FAST FOOD.
