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

Found it somewhat cramped. Service was ok despite getting the drinks wrong but attentive and had three different waitresses try to attend to us. The food - great concept but bland in flavour. As one of our party commented " nice change but wouldn't come here again " All in all it was alright.

This is my first time here and I cam with a large group. Both the food and service were excellent - we particularly enjoyed the Petite Plats and couldn't fault the house wine. Great value and I would certainly return.

I am slightly perplexed by the number of reviews which say the food here is outstanding. My experience was not so fantastic - don't get me wrong, there is nothing 'bad' about this restaurant and it's a cheap option, however we found our meat to be overcooked and hence very dry, and overall our food was quite bland. The desserts... More

Another visit, this time a large group for the leaving do of a much loved and respected colleague. As before the food was great, but more importantly the atmosphere and service was second to none. Slightly over did the Italian red wine though, no one else to blame other than myself.
