Alive with colour and spice, the family-run Assilah Bistro brings Moroccan flavours to Bristol. The restaurant is situated on Wells Road between Arno’s Vale and Totterdown, and less than ten minutes’ drive from the city centre. The kitchen prepares slow-cooked meat and seafood tagines, meatballs and plenty of vegetarian dishes. Meals are crafted according to traditional recipes and feature authentic blends of spices such as harissa, saffron and ginger. Chefs also offer a range of Halal options and can cater for diabetic dietary requirements. The dining area features patterned furnishings, warm colours and North African trinkets. Elsewhere, the lounge sports comfy seating and the patio offers outdoor tables. Diners can sip on a Moroccan mint tea or may opt to hire a sheesha pipe. The eatery plays host to Arabian belly dancing and other live entertainment throughout the year.
