La Guinguette is Bristol’s new Paris style bistrot. Run by Jérôme, Roxane & Ophélie, La Guinguette serves cheese, wines and lots of simple & delicious dishes!

Husband and wife Roxane and Jérôme and their best friend Ophélie wanted to bring the best of simple and tasty French food to Bristol. In a relaxed atmosphere, the trio serves eggs mayonnaise, steak frites, pissaladière (a type of pizza), cheese and cold meat platters, rillettes and Croque Monsieurs as well as the winter showstopper: melted raclette cheese.

Come for a tasty sandwich at lunchtime, or pop by to wind down with a cold beer or a glass of French wine after work. Open from Wed to Sun (12pm-10pm)

We have been looking forward to visiting ‘La Guinguette’ since seeing it being set up across the street. I’m glad to say it lived it up to my expectations! It has a very relaxed atmosphere and some lovely authentic decoration. The food was outstanding. We had Steak Frites, which was cooked to perfection, and the Raclette which was a delight. Enjoyed with a full bodied, flavourful French Syrah. Can’t wait to come back.

Roxane, Jérôme and Ophélie moved from Paris to Bristol and wanted to bring with them the taste of a traditional French bistrot. Having worked in the restaurant trade for years, they know that good food, simplicity and a welcoming atmosphere are the key elements in the recipe for a great restaurant.

They have created a very Parisian experience in the heart of Bristol that reflects the best of what their favourite places in the French capital have to offer.

La Guinguette is somewhere between a bar and a restaurant. It’s a place where you can meet for a drink after work, or a cheese feast with friends in a relaxed atmosphere.
