This really is a find. Great concept and good value. Prompt friendly service from this family run team. We visited on a busy Saturday evening after a Bath Rugby home game and I was particularly impressed by the speed of the service - we were out within 90 minutes but did not feel rushed at any time.

We loved the concept: having tiny bits of various French food. Everything was very elaborate and the price very reasonable. The patron and the waitresses are friendly and welcoming. We had a great evening.

The pre-theatre menu is the way to go, offering plenty of food for a very reasonable price. I particularly love the gratin potatoes and the green beans.

I booked Bistro La Barrique for my friend's hen weekend in Bath in October. The food was really good and everyone enjoyed sharing all of the dishes so it is a great concept. However what let this place down was the service. We had to wait for 20 minutes for our waitress to explain the size of the dishes so... More

I have been to this restaurant on a couple of occasions, and it never disappoints...attentive service and tasty food. Oh, and don't be snobby and think you shouldn't order the chips...they're very good.

I like French food but this was an experiment. Fantastic food, great atmosphere and superb host in MIchel. I took a young lady who absolutely adored the scallops and we had great fun with the range of choices. Thoroughly recommended

As a party of older ladies we enjoyed the concept of small plates. That is not to say however that we ate small quantities as the concept gives you the opportunity to eat as much or as little as you like. We sampled 7 dishes between us and the food was very good. We all particularly enjoyed the mushroom flan.... More

Amazing French food served with the style of Spanish tapas but French cooking as it's best. One of my favourite, Duck Parmentier... Amazing snails or great venaison. Don't miss it, it is a great place to go, lunch or dinner. Don't buy one dish each, buy 2 or 3 rounds that you share, makes your evening even more fun... Amazing... More

On 30th October, with a group of friends, we had a fantastic evening of 'food and wine' at Bistro La Barrique. We had a delicious 4 course menu consisting of fish, meat and dessert cooked by great chef Michel LeMoine. All courses were served with wine from the Bordeaux region and were introduced by wine expert, Bastion. He was very... More
