| The Bristol Airport restaurant facilities are a disgrace for an 'international' airport. In one of the airport restaurants - the 'Cabin' - the food is utterly inedible. The menu consists mainly of various burgers and 'wedges' (fat chips) or Caesar salads with or without chicken. There are no kitchen or cooking facilities, the food is simply piled on a plate and put in a microwave. The 'wedges' just turn to mush and the chicken burger I had was a stale bun with one tired lettuce leaf, a small slice of cold tomato and a quite repulsive filet of chicken that had been 'cooked' in the microwave. I couldn't eat it and sent it back. The staff obviously know of this problem and immediately accepted a change of dish so I chose something risk-free (I thought) - a plain Caesar salad. Back came a mound of even tireder green lettuce, a few croutons, cheap mayonnaise sploshed over it and hardly a sign of the 'cheese' indicated on the menu. I also sent it back and we decided to leave and paid for our drinks. These burgers and salads are wildly expensive - between £9 - £14! OK, airport food is always that much more expensive but these prices for the junk you get is scandalous! When I complained about each dish I was told I was the first customer to do so! This was totally untrue as my partner and I saw another table refusing the burger and 'wedgies', yet another customer nearby came up to us and and told us how much he agreed, and the couple next to us did, too, and ended up choosing cheese and biscuits for their meal - the only edible possibility. And to top it all, the menu proudly announces 'less than a 15 minute' wait for your meal but we waited over half an hour! When I asked the waitress where our food was she said apologetically that they had run out of printing paper!!! We had no idea what she meant by that. So a warning to all travellers at Bristol Airport: do not go to 'The Cabin' to eat. The other restaurant further along isn't much better either - mainly burgers again. There is a small café/snack bar between the two which is probably your best bet, certainly a bit cheaper - although I ended up having a pre-packed salad there and it was very dry with practically no salad sauce in the box.
