SquareMeal Review of The Lido Restaurant

"VERY GOOD"

Set in a viewing gallery overlooking the 24-metre blue-tiled pool at Bristol’s regenerated Victorian lido, this comfortable breezy space is one of the most exciting eateries in town – with the bonus of a spa, poolside bar and other treats. The kitchen has forged a reputation for astutely handled food with broad Mediterranean overtones and influences ranging from Spain to the Middle East. Fuss-free, vibrant flavours shine through in a raft of colourful dishes running from ajo blanco with cherries and basil or lamb’s sweetbreads with girolles, broad beans and jamón to slow-cooked rabbit leg with peas, morcilla and mint or broad bean falafel with carrot and orange-blossom purée and Turkish salad. The wood-fired oven also gets a good workout (whole plaice with sherry butter, asparagus and crispy capers, say), while desserts might bring Jerez cream with poached cherries, anis de mono and almond biscotti. You can drop by for breakfast too, and a tapas menu is served in the poolside bar. The Lido’s various ‘swim and eat’ packages are also worth checking out.
