A True Taste of Jamaica

“Cooking is at the heart of what I do. Rice and Things is not only a restaurant, it is an experience. My dream is that every moment that you spend with us is an authentic taste of Jamaica. You will feel my heart and soul in the atmosphere, the food and the restaurant”

Rice & Things is a lifelong dream of Chef Neufville, a very passionate Jamaican Chef, who believes in authenticity and strives for excellence.
What started out as a take-away referred to by many as a ‘hole in the wall’ , has become the Rice & Things Exclusive Jamaican Restaurant and Bar.

The Rice and Things team work tirelessly to give you nothing but full satisfaction and value for money. We pride ourselves on the strength of your experience with us.  We hope that through our service and dishes we can strengthen ties within our communities.

“Our aim is for you to experience authentic Jamaican hospitality.  Our goal is excellence!”

Genuinely one of the best restaurants in the UK, let alone Bristol. I have moved out of Bristol and there's not a day goes by that i don't think about their oxtail and beans - an absolute 10/10 and the only 10/10 I've ever given a meal. The lady at the front is lovely as well. I've never been to Jamaica but I will now haha. Thank you for your service Rice & Things. I will be back soon.
