Scrumptious food, with lovely staff and terrific prices. Possibly one of the best caesar salads I have ever had.

Enjoyed an excellent evening party for my husbands birthday. Staff really friendly and helpful, decorated the tables beautifully, nothing was too much trouble. A party of 16 enjoying the tapas menu plus sangria, a great variety of tasty tapas, served beautifully and plenty to go around. I would highly recommend this family run tapas restaurant, we will be back soon.... More

I have visited this establishment severall times. The food is very good, and reasonable. At times it feels like it is unsure of its purpose, with a small tapas menu, sandwich menu and a couple main dishes lunch can be an awkward affair. Also have felt awkward drinking here during lunch due to amount of people taking coffees etc. But... More

Whilst strolling through Bath and gathering inspiration for my upcoming road trip I bumped into this family run cafe/restaurant serving some delicious tapas. There's a huge black board showing what's on the menu which is all prepared fresh. I truly enjoyed my selection and apparently they do great breakfast as well till 11.30 well worth coming back for I've been... More

We had really good tapas here and we actually ordered everything on the menu - so we can vouch for the fact that all the taps is very tasty and well presented. The staff were also really lovely - not enough places have friendly and polite staff these days. Really good cafe - restaurant.

Popped in for a breakfast having visited for an evening meal on our last visit to Bath. Food weel cooked tasty and the staff were helpful and dealt with coeliac issue really well with no fuss, happily using our own gluten free bread to incorporate in a lovely breakfast. Thank you.

I needed to grab a quick coffee before an appointment and Same-Same ticked the boxes; it was around the corner from where I needed to be and had some seats outside so I could enjoy a bit of sunshine. Its only a very small cafe-style restaurant, but the staff were friendly when I walked through the door, and made my... More

We had breakfast here rather than paying exorbitant prices at our hotel, and it was a good move. We both had yoghurt, muesli and fruit and it was very good. Decent coffee and a nice ambiance. There are loads of other choices on the menu.
