I came here for dinner on Saturday evening with my (well behaved) child. We had looked up the restaurant online first, to check that children were welcome and indeed they are. The staff were fabulous with her - and me, for that matter. We were both well looked after. The entire petit plats menu sounded delicious so we shall definitely... More

We went to this restaurant for an early dinner. We shared five petit plats (two of the specials) and two sides between us. Everything was quite nice although the stuffed mushroom from the specials menu was clearly the standout item. The apple tart tatin with cinnamon cream dessert was also very good. The coffee was hotter than the sun and... More

Excellent food,with many small plate servings which were a taste sensation. The waiter was excellent explaining the menu and servings and even helped me with my French pronunciation. Close to the Queen Square and the Francis Hotel.

Went there as a couple for lunch after our arrival in Bath. Ordered nice glasses of white wine to accompany the tapas we chose as part of the noon time meal special. Very good choice it was. Good service but we were the only one in the restaurant between mealtimes.

I recently visited Bath with my two teenagers and happened to stumble across this fabulous restaurant. The menu catered for all our tastes and did not disappoint, even for my picky teenage son who thought the 'little plates' idea was very cool. The service was second to none and the waitress was very attentive (felt very looked after). Overall we... More

I had a brief stint living in France and, having very much enjoyed dining over there, I had high expectations of Bistro La Barrique and I am pleased to say that it did not disappoint. I visited a couple of weeks ago and had a great evening, the atmosphere was lovely and the service was outstanding. The food was first... More

Table did not require booking, but a nice buzz of people. Food came promptly and was more than enough. Will go again!

This was an after theatre matinee performance dinner so we ate quite early at 18:30. It is just a few yards from the Theatre Royal and caters well for pre theatre dinner as well as after. Chef Michel Lemoine was at the bar and is a well known TV chef. The idea of petit plats is very appealing and the... More

Had visited this restaurant a few years ago and when we visited Bath last month decided to visit again, not disappointed! The 'little plates' are a brilliant idea, my friend chose 2 identical plates and I went for 2 different ones, we both thought the minute steak was amazing and the wine was lovely. I must praise the waitress, she... More
