Fodor's Review

A local institution, this bistro in a former grocery shop concentrates on delectable Mediterranean-style tapas using locally sourced ingredients. Choices include fennel and pomegranate salad with buffalo mozzarella, seared mackerel fillet, and charcoal-grilled pigeon breast; many of the dishes are available in small or main-course sizes. The ambience is youthful and lively, though the decor in the three small rooms has a retro feel, with wood floors, pale gray walls, and an old record-player and other curios on display. Bell's is rather hard to find—take A38 north, then turn right on Ashley Road and immediately left at Picton Street, which leads to York Road. Alternatively, from the city center, board any bus heading up Stokes Croft.
