A real find

We stumbled across this little restaurant while we were looking for something for lunch. What a find. Lovely food, helpful staff & not too expensive. Recommended.

Came here after reading many excellent reviews on here so had high hopes! The service was excellent; really friendly staff and prompt service. The food though was more variable; we ordered a selection of tapas and a couple of dishes were delicious, but others less so. For example, the tomato sauce that came with the potatoes was quite sweet and... More

We went as part of a colleagues leaving party and booked ahead. It was to be £18 for all you can eat tapas. The food that came was delicious but just not nearly enough. No deserts were included and we left hungry. Rubish

Better than my expectation! The staff was kind and the food was tasty :-) It was also quiet. I recommend this restaurant to you.

Eggs Benedict with bacon instead of ham, fantastic coffee and friendly efficient service. What else could you ask for? A bit pricey, but that is that way in central Bath. Recommended over nearby establishments.

Tapas style food which was really nice especially the lamb dish. It wasn't busy on the night we went but that was quite nice as it is a fairly small space. It's got a relaxed feel about it. We would go back.

The food was top notch and perfect for the price, too. Friendly service and not crammed full of noisy tourists. Liked how quickly we were served without ever feeling rushed. Down side: toilets are downstairs (tight spiral staircase) and anyone with mobility issues would not make it.

We recently stopped here and we're pleasantly surprised. It's a small place with good food. I had pork confit with lentils and chorizo with was very good. The pork was cooked perfectly and the chorizo lent the right amount of spiciest to the dish. My husband had some kind of fish cake which he enjoyed.

Cut café. Menu changes everyday. I found it a bit over rated however. Food wasn't bad but nothing outstanding as well. Quantities could be much better

Lovely meal particularly the asparagus. Aioli not aliolli French garlic mayonnaise rather than the amazing Spanish stuff. A mixture of different types of food but good service and all well cooked.
