THE new Biblos has officially opened, and it's fair to say that their wraps are going to be a big hit with Bishopston folk.

Co-owner Will Clarke says that since opening its doors on March 17, the local support has been “amazing”.

'Biblos on the Hill' – the name chosen because of its prime location on Gloucester Road's Pigsty Hill – is in place of the former Zazu's Kitchen and is the third venue exclusive to Bristol.

The first cafe to launch was in St Werburghs in 2011, with another one opening shortly after in Stokes Croft.

Alongside Ariel Czaczkes, the pair have refined their original menu, which fuses Caribbean and Middle Eastern flavours, to reflect the change in direction of Biblos on the Hill.

Succulent and flavoursome, wraps range from Bajan jerk chicken to lamb kofte, falafel to halloumi, with the bread freshly baked on site and sauces homemade.

Side dishes boast an array of delectable treats including baba ganoush, zucchini fritti, plantain, as well spicy fries, onion rings, rice and olives.

Children are also accommodated for, with mini mezzes and sides.

Biblos' drinks menu is just as impressive, with a wide range of beers, spirits, creatively named cocktails, such as 'Jamakin' Me Crazy' and 'Rum n Ting', as well as soft drinks.

Will, a Bishospton dad of three, said: “Since our opening on Tuesday the local support has been amazing. Like our other two cafes, the return custom over the past few days has been really great.”
