About Pata Negra

Found in the heart of Bristol’s Old City, is this buzzy Spanish tapas and wine bar. The name Pata Negra translates from Spanish as ‘black hoof’ and is a nod to the finest Jamon Iberico meat that you can find, which Pata Negra prides itself on serving. 

The mean is cultivated from free-range black Iberian pigs who are fed on a diet of acorns. The meat is cured for 36 months to give it its remarkable flavour, with cured meats being something of a specialty for the restaurant.  

Before you get to the meat though, you can first enjoy a selection of tapas dishes from a menu that is updated regularly. On your visit, you might come across the likes of patatas bravas with a picante alioli, fried Iberian goat’s cheese served alongside poached figs, or perhaps grilled king prawns swimming in garlic sauce. There are a few options for larger groups too, such as a whole sea bream flecked with olive oil and lemon or Iberico pork shoulder with a celeriac and truffle puree. 

The dessert menu is short at Pata Negra, but there are still strong enough options available to tickle your fancy. Tuck into the likes of chocolate with olive oil or opt for something lighter, such as mango and passionfruit sorbet.  

On the weekends, you can head to Pata Negra to enjoy a twist on the traditional Sunday roast. Here, roasts are served sharing-style, so it’s a great excuse to get all of the family together for Sunday lunch. While the little ones sip on Orangina or homemade lemonades, the grown-ups can explore the restaurant’s succinct, but impressive list of Spanish wines. Don’t worry if you are not a wine lover though, as Pata Negra also serves house made cocktails, ranging from a Red Sangria to a Dark and Stormy.   

Note that Pata Negra is walk-ins only.
