Colourful Cuisine, Lebanese Style
Begin the virtual tour of Lona Grill House & Juice Bar in Bristol and we're pretty sure the first thing you'll notice is the décor. With its Bedouin tent ceiling, crazy-paved walls and central circular juice bar, all bursting with colour, this is no shrinking violet of a restaurant.
Add the lengthy open kitchen/grill where authentic Lebanese cuisine is displayed in all its vibrant glory, ready to be cooked in full view of customers, this is not the place to go if you're looking for a run of the mill dining experience.
The menu at Lona Grill is pretty extensive, with every kind of grilled meat and fish you can imagine, along with kebabs, wraps and tasty small appetizer dishes of both hot and cold mezze.
An alcohol-free restaurant, the range of refreshing fruit juices are always going to feature large here. There are over 45 variations to choose from, all put together using delicious, freshly squeezed fruits. In addition to the traditional orange, apple and banana, you can also try a thirst-quenching splash of avocado, dates, carrots or papaya.
Take a walk right around the exotically decorated juice bar in the middle of the room and see the colourful array of fruit lined up, fresh and ready to be crushed and consumed.
The restaurant occupies a large area, with plenty of seating on different levels inside. There's also heaps of room out front for those who want to soak up the buzz of Bristol's bohemian Gloucester Road.
Families are welcome here, with a spacious, brightly decorated area just for children to run around and play in at the back of the restaurant, watched over by a Lion King mural.
Reputed to be the home of the largest stretch of independent traders in one street in the UK, Gloucester Road boasts an eclectic mix of individual places to explore. Lona Grill House & Juice Bar is definitely one not to miss.
