Back again and as great as usual!!

Great meal, and Michel the owner was amazing entertainment again, his smile and humour made the meal even more enjoyable. The special Toulouse sausage from Castellanos was excellent if you order pudding, make sure you get a scoop of the hazelnut ice cream, simply sexy!!

On a recent visit to Bath I heard that you can choose from up to four hundred places to eat. This must be among the best. The variety in the menu should be enough for anyone and the quality of the dishes is superb. Our most recent visit was for an evening meal and we enjoyed ourselves enormously. The waitress... More

We have eaten here a number of times and we returned last Friday on chance but managed to get a table. The food was good. but not as good as in the past. The duck confit was pretty tasteless. Unfortunately the services left alot to be desired. There were three young ladies serving. They sat us on a table next... More

If you're like me and can never decide what to choose from the menu, then this place is perfect. It's not your typical tapas, but the same concept. We ordered 6 plates plus a side dish between two and this was more than enough. Every dish was wonderful. Sea Bass, Salmon, Mushrooms, Steak, Chicken, bruschetta and potato gratin.. I will... More

Dropped in here on the off chance that they could fit us in. This restaurant serves small, entree sized meals to combine, which is nice as you can choose three for a resonable price and get to try something different. The salmon risotto is to die for! The staff were a bit up themselves but otherwise very nice.

I liked the fact that the menu consists of small dishes, rather larger than a conventional starter, so you have the opportunity to try different dishes and eat as much or as little as you like. My wife and I both enjoyed the experience and found the total cost offered good value for money.

We had an early evening meal at this bistro. We were greeted on arrival and shown promptly to our table. The restaurant was already comfortably full of people enjoying a pre-theatre meal. We chose three petite plats from the menu together with two side dishes to share between us. The food was very tasty and beautifully presented. We had salmon... More
