Renowned as one of the finest restaurants in the South West, the Second Floor Restaurant and Bar offers the best in modern dining. Situated on the top floor Harvey Nichols, Bristol, the Michelin-recommended restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy brunch, a light lunch, afternoon tea or an intimate dinner while admiring the view of Quakers Friars from the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Award-winning Executive Chef Louise McCrimmon uses the finest seasonal ingredients to create a selection of all-day menus combining classic and contemporary techniques with rich flavours. Along with her team, she has won a host of top honours, including Chef of the Year in the Bristol Good Food Awards, an AA Notable Wine List Award and two coveted AA Rosettes.

About the Chef

Louise McCrimmon trained at Leiths School of Food and Wine, where she learnt the classic techniques that are the backbone of her cooking today. After cooking her way around Burgundy in France, she settled in Yorkshire, where she joined Harvey Nichols as Chef de Partie. Louise worked her way up through the ranks in the Fourth Floor Restaurant, Leeds - our first store outside London – and became Head Chef of the Second Floor Restaurant at our Bristol store in 2008, where she has really stamped her identity. Louise’s cooking is known for its lightness of touch and well-defined flavours. Her food has real character, combined with a commitment to seasonality and well-sourced raw ingredients.
