Small tapas style French cuisine dishes, it was an absolute treat. It doesn't 'look much' from the outside but I think it should stay that way to keep this a hidden retreat from the outside world. Service, food both fantastic, would go again on my next visit to Bath.

First of all, the food was magnificent. Beautiful fresh flavours, presented in fantastic tapas style, which it turns out is very interesting thing to do with French cuisine! For £9.95 I had 2 "petit plats" and a side dish which were all just the right size. I had the roast chicken and also a sardine dish, both of which contained... More

Selecting from the extensive menu is challenging, there are so many. They suggest having two or three dishes. We had five dishes to share and probably could have been satisfied with four. Service was a little slow, but the food was excellent. Dishes cost about $10 each.

We recently visited la barrique and was extremely impressed, the service and food was very good and we was felt relaxed through the whole time we was there. We will be back to enjoy the ambience and food again.

We chose Bistro La Barrique because we fancied an independent venue and its French cuisine and we were surprised but delighted to find it served French-style tapas or small plates. we chose six small plates and two sides to share and enjoyed a bottle of delicious white Colombard wine. It was just a little too much for us but we... More

We went here for a late dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We sat in the garden as we figured it might be the last chance we get to dine al fresco this summer. We were alone out there which was a nice surprise though I did feel a bit sorry for our lovely waitress having to go in and... More

Well presented and very tasty food. Portion size not sizeable but it does call it petit on the menu. £12.95 for 3 petit dishes. Very full restaurant which made us feel a bit uncomfortable as we didn't have a great deal of room and were in the middle of everyone, hence why have only given it 3 stars and not... More

We picked Bistro La Barrique for a pre-theatre lunch purely because it is unusual for a mainstream restaurant to have so many vegetarian dishes on the menu and I have to say we were not disappointed at all. Between the two of us we shared 4 of the 'small plate' dishes and 4 side dishes and we were not disappointed... More

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
