Our ever changing menu combines traditional tapas with personal interpretations from Michelin starred Chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias, whilst staying true to the vibrant and comforting flavours of his heritage.
No tapas bar is worth its salt without a carefully crafted sherry list - just ask Paco! So, we've handpicked ours, and offer them by the glass, bottle or shaken into the finest cocktails.
Thanks to all our amazing suppliers & team we are realising another Sanchez Brothers dream - A modern tapas bar bringing a taste of Andalusia to Bristol. Whether you're coming para picar, for a glass of sherry or a tapas feast we can't wait to see you!

Cooked in the Coals
Wonderful food. Went for the chefs recommendation.
Great atmosphere and fantastic service but thought the food/wine was over-priced
Not great service, staff didn’t speak to us! And why ask about the occasion if you don’t mention it!
All in all disappointed.
Booked this last minute and didn’t really expect the high prices to be honest. The food was lovely but definitely doesn’t warrant the huge price tag. I am a self confused foodie and myself and my husband have been to a fair few Michelin star restaurants and seen more reasonable prices! I can’t fault the food but equally can’t see how £22 can be charged for 6 thin slices of lamb!
Beautiful food. Attention to detail. Very tasty and surprisingly filling. Worked a great as a post work drink and supper option
Great overall meal. Will look forward to returning soon.
Yet again a lovely meal and service at Paco Tapas. I've been here four times over the last few years and the service and food is always impressive. The place is really cool and has a great atmosphere. Clearly everyone who works here are passionate about providing great food and service. I will most definitely be back!!
Lovely atmosphere, friendly and knowledgable service, outstanding food.
Great variety of well cooked and really tasty food
Faultless service, delicious food, great ambiance. Loved it.
Always a good evening! Outstanding food, friendly and knowledgable staff and great atmosphere. 10/10
Incredible food and atmosphere as always! Thank you guys!
Lives up to expectations. My family had the Chef’s Menu which was amazing. About 20 different courses. I’m vegetarian so had 5 dishes from the normal menu. Each dish was seasoned so well you don’t even think about condiments. Services was attentive but not over the top. The only thing I would say is that the music is a little loud.
Over priced and over rated
Food ok , but massively over priced for what you get
Table small and uncomfortable chairs. Service was not bad but we have to ask for the table to fix and call a waiter for finding space where to place our jackets.
Food took very long to come and portions were extremely small which made the whole experience overpriced. Our meat dish the most expensive came last and was cold like carpaccio style and I could do with more salt on it.
Not a Michellin star restaurant in my opinion.
This is a fun and fab place, but we were all older people and it was not for us. The staff did everything to give us a good time, but we were glad when the meal ended and we could go.
Excellent food, very good service. Have been before and consistent quality with delicious food and wine. Happy to see that they have maintained the quality.
Excellent food very friendly staff . Chefs choice menu highly recommended
Friendly venue, wonderful tapas with a twist, attentive service.
Delicious, interesting dishes. Excellent service. Will definitely go back
A fantastic experience all round, cant wait to go back.
Fantastic food. Very good overall. Can not fault the place on anything we ate. Unfortunately, the abiance is a bit "stark" and the music was too loud and the techno beets for a Spanish tapas was, to me, completely out of place. I would return for the food but my advice to the management is to find some mood music that is more in line with Spanish food.
Great Michelin star restaurant. Would definitely recommend for a great night out
Great service, great food. That simple! Can’t recommend enough.
Service was on point and excellent, wine was good. Food was OK, nothing particularly special apart from the olives and croquettes which were great. We did the tasting menu and courses arrived quickly which was good.
Good food, fantastic service. Margarita our waitress was friendly, attentive and answered with a smile any questions we had on the menu. We definitely will go back.
Love paco - have been a few times. Steak was amazing. Service was wonderful. But was cold and dark and set next to a loud table of 6 and as a couple we were overpowered by their noise .
Beautiful food, absolutely exquisite. A touch pricey but I mean, this is a michelin star restaurant so kind of expected that too. well worth trying
The food was great but the place is awful, loud music to the point that you can’t have a conversation, it enables people to speak even louder, it’s terrible.
Excellent restaurant, menu interesting, plenty of choice, good explanations from staff regarding the menu.
Amazing. Never had tapas quite like it. Will definitely visit again.
Great service and lovely atmosphere. Food was out of this world. The lamb wow!!!
Our second visit and just as good as the first. We were transported back to Spain again!
The food and experience was great and the staff excellent and friendly. Would certainly recommend and would easily revisit again.
The setting was impressive.
The welcome was warm & friendly.
The service and advice on the food and Sherry was faultless.
The quality of cooking was superb.
Some of the best food in Bristol (and the UK), priced reasonably. We went for the chef's menu and sherry flight, which was delicious and paired beautifully with the drink.
Beautiful food, excellent service, great staff ,best tapas by a long way.
Amazing from start to finish. Really attentive waiting staff who were knowledgable and informative about the fantastic menu. We can’t fault the superb food and the atmosphere . Perhaps some Spanish music though Xx
Superb authentic spanish tapas with the emphasis on food sourced from the finest ingredients and freshly cooked. Friendly presentation with a lively atmosphere.
The food was sublime, balances of flavours was out of this world and aleixandrus just made the atmosphere perfect for my birthday meal.
Really great evening. James the manager was very attentive and explained the chefs menu perfectly.
We also requested to move to an outside table for the last course which was facilitated without issue so we could enjoy the view for the end of our meal.
All in all, lovely food with a great vibe for an occasion or date.
