In a former sugar warehouse close to the waterfront, the casual French-inspired bistro at the Bristol HdV is a buzzy and easy-going venue. Factor in the world-class wine list, and you've got a compelling package. The bilingual menu deals in classic stuff such as steak tartare or French onion soup, and the kitchen tackles a Comté soufflé with considerable success. Among main courses, moules et frites and calves' liver and bacon are straight-up options, with duck shepherd's pie offering something a little off-piste. Excellent pastry helps a treacle tart hit the spot, and the impressive wine list isn't all about France.
