Have been several times before and never fails to please. Usually go before attending the theatre and have always been lucky to get a table for two but suggest you book to avoid disappointment. Basically , it is tapas but the emphasis is on French cooking not Spanish. The proprietor is usually on hand but he is not intrusive. Decor... More

This place is lovely! If you are having a dinner then the restaurant recommend 2 or 3 "small plates" each... at £6-8 a plate its not cheap but certainly not the priciest either! All of the dishes were small but perfectly formed. The ambience is lovely as were all of the staff, helpful when you want but no rushing or... More

Booked for lunch and we were so impressed that we returned for post theatre supper the same night. Really enjoyed the tapas style food which was all high quality and tasty. The staff were attentive and the owner made us feel very welcome. He even put up with my wife's Yorkshire humour. Thoroughly recommended.

We found Bistro La Barrique walking around Bath looking for a late dinner. We were not real hungry, so the tapas on the menu were just right. We ordered 4 plates and that was perfect. The wait staff was very helpful and I think the owner was walking around and was a pleasure.

If you're after a lovely atmosphere and a chance to sample lots of little French dishes then this is definitely the place for you. Great value for money, with fast and efficient service from lovely smiley staff. A delight to visit and a great evening had by myself and my partner. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again. Highly recommended.... More

I have never had French tapas but will definitely be back for more. We went on the off chance and so glad we did. Mussels with pesto, scallops with tagliatelle, garlic snails, steak and haggis a fantastic mixture of tastes finished off with a vodka soaked lemon sorbet all of it gorgeous. Great service, great night would definitely recommend.

This was our first visit after many recommendations to try it and we were not disappointed. High quality food served in small plates in a great atmosphere. The selection of plates was great, with a party of four we chose eight with four sides, all absolutely delicious and one of the party commented that it was a taste sensation. The... More

We stumbled on this little gem set in the heart of bath last night whilst looking for a resturant with a courtyard since the weather was lovely and wow how surprised we were. Fantastic quality and real taste, cant remember the last time we both tasted quality food for a meager £20 each...main courses from £7.50 in Bath .... cant... More
