About The Spiny Lobster

The Spiny Lobster is the creation of Mitch Tonks and was formerly known as The Rockfish Grill.  We've been on Whiteladies Road for 15 years with a restaurant and fishmonger and a great loyal following locally and from visitors to Bristol and to Clifton. The Spiny Lobster offers a wide ranging menu designed for lovers of the best seafood and meats; we specialise in cooking over the open fire of our josper grill, adding a distinct flavour to our food inspired by Mitch's travels to the Meditarranean. 

Have a look at the menu, come to the restaurant and fishmongers and see for yourselves this gem in Bristol.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Here is some lovely comments from our customers. We hope you enjoy the experince as much as they did!

 "My wife's birthday was made extra special by this fine restaurant. The food was excellent, the service was first class and nothing was too much trouble. If there was a 6 star option I would give it. Thank you very much." (February 3rd 2018)

 "The Spiny Lobster is an amazing restaurant. Great food with a daily changing menu. The staff are incredible, can't do enough for you. Well worth a visit if you love fresh seafood. 10/10 see you again." (October 27th 2017)

"A lovely evening made even more so by the friendly waitresses and the fact they took into account it was my husbands 30th and had complimentary glasses of sparkling and put a candle on his dessert.

The fish was fresh and the waitress knowledgeable about the menu. My prawns were large and succulent and my husbands crab claws on a bed of ice so fresh however could have been larger variety as it was so hard getting much flesh out of them. My hake was perfectly cooked and the rhubarb dessert just the right amount of tartnes. Overall a lovely meal on a rainy night". (February 23rd 2017)
