Lovely food and what a great way to experience a range of dishes, all expertly prepared. We had 4 "small plates", 2 sides dishes and 2 desserts, between two. This seemed just right. The Caramalised Red Onion, Goats Cheese and Sweet Potatoe Tatin and the scallops really stood out; whilst all of the food was tasty and of great quality.... More

A small part of us went out for a friends birthday on a Friday evening having booked in advance and got an email confirmation through. Upon arrival the staff had no record of our booking but fortunately it wasn't busy so tables could be moved around to fit us in. The petit plat dishes on the menu all sounded lovely... More

We needed some food after a visit to an early Tuesday evening film and took a chance on turning up at the Bistro at 2000 without booking. Fairly quiet we easily found a table for two. Interesting wide ranging menu of "peitits plats" with some specials on the board. We had a good bowl of Olives to start and my... More

Popped in here for an early evening meal, and was pleasantly surprised. Nice selection of tapas dishes and service excellent and quick. Prices a little on the expensive side, but food was very good - and filling!

Nice little restaurant near the theatre. Went here after reading other reviews on TA. Service great and food even better. Must go back when next in Bath

Great location and pleasant staff. However whilst the food is lovely the portions are quite small. I went with my girlfriend and we were advised to get 2 main dishes and a side dish each, but this wasn't really enough food...well not for the overall cost of the meal. If you're looking for delicious food at a fair price then... More

We went recently to Bistro La Barrique as part of a weekend of celebration for a special birthday. I didn't organise this one, but I have to say there's no criticism for the person who did as the TA reviews are so good. And we did have a lovely evening together, so nothing spoiled. But to be objective, this place... More

Being in Bath for a couple of nights and having consumed a hotel breakfast we were looking for something different for a small lunch and certainly found it here. The petit plats were very interesting and varied and we chose a couple with some bread together with a nice carafe of wine. Enjoying these and the vibrant atmosphere of the... More

Had a superb evening meal, excellent menu - so much choice. Went for the house wine (Red), great value for money. If you would like to try something a bit different rather than the usual "run of the mill", this is the place to come to. Could not fault the service either. Will be back when next in Bath.

Fabulous location, fabulous atmosphere, fabulous staff and the most fabulous food - absolutely loved this place. We were a party of 17 and still the service was excellent and the food second to none. The only problem I had was what to choose from the menu - there was so much to choose from and all lovely and something different.... More
