My experience at Europa was amazing. Not normally too fond on Italian food but the pasta I ate was absolutely amazing. My friend and I visited very late in the evening and was still made to feel welcome and not rushed at all. Great cocktails too!

Seven of us met for lunch, all with different tastes. The lunch time special was just right for all of us. I had a freshly cooked pizza with salad, it was too much for and unfortunately I had to leave some. We all had a good meal and the bill was very reasonable. The young staff were fine and professional.... More

Iv been to this resturant a few times before and always had a great time, but sadly my last visit was diffrent. The food was okay but the service by the younger waiters was very poor. No smiles , felt like i was bothering them. But they was happy to mess about around the resturant acting like children, management saw... More

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for your review bringing to my attention the actions of a few younger members of our waiting staff; I can assure you that this type of childish behavior is not a "regular thing" in our restaurant. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances no senior managers where present on the dinning room floor that... More

Wait were left waiting, just standing around, no offer of a drink or anything. After finally getting our table, we were sat for way over 15 minutes waiting for someone to come take our order, for...

So sorry to hear that you where disappointed with the service this time you dinned with us, I can assure you that this is very unusual, unfortunatley on some occasions the previous table is late finishing which has a knock on effect for the next sitting especially when the theatres are busy on a weekend; but I can assure you...

We dropped in without a booking and was immediately greeted in a friendly, welcoming manner and shown to a table in the window. Whilst I'd read previous reviews, I was pleasantly surprised at the relaxed, yet excellent service that we received throughout the evening. We shared Bruschetta to start which was excellent, and then had the lasagna and pizza (both... More

On a wet Tuesday night in Bristol this was an oasis of warmth and fine food. Tasty mussels followed by a calzone pizza. Very good quality food and proper stuffed by the time I'd munched my way through the over sized pasty. Would recommend this place. Good value too .

So pleased you enjoyed our warmth and hospitality on a wet night in Bristol not to mention the great value food. It really means a lot to the whole team when people take time to write reviews about our restaurant because without our lovely customers there would be no Europa. Thank you so much More

Have been to Europa Restaurant a couple of times with a team of 25 people, both times the food was delivered to everyone at the same time, hot and always with the great Europa quality and flavours. Always a hit with the team!

Food was okay when it arrived but was nothing special, or as good as other reviews have suggested. We visited on a Saturday night and had an hour and a half wait for our main course to arrive, without much in the way of an apology or update from staff as to why their was a delay. There are certainly... More
