Superb Lunchtime Tapas

I've been coming here on and off for years, and have never been disappointed. I had tapas here with a friend the other day and I made up my mind to write a review - it was that good! The tapas was really tasty, diverse and beautifully presented, and the service was good, too. For me, this is one... read more

Very cute atmosphere I had Eggs Picante which were excellent. I'm originally from Louisiana and loved the Tabasco addiction to this dish. It's cute, accessible and centrally located and had a local vibe! I'd come back here regularly for breakfast if I lived here.

We hadn't been to Same Same for a while so on the search for an all day breakfast we went with visiting friends yesterday. We had missed the breakfast, which finishes at 11,30 but I managed to order a lovely BLT on home-made gluten free bread. Friends ordered the good old traditional English breakfast favourite of the middle/upper class, kedgeree,... More

This is a long overdue review. A perfect experience from booking to exit. We had a table of eight and all loved the fresh creative dishes that just kept coming. This is an exceptional, small restaurant in easy walking distance from the Abbey area. We will definitely be back and to be honest, I can't wait.

What a great spot! The food was knock out. Everything we had was delish, especially the tapas - honey carrots on lemony yogurt and confit pork with lentils.

Bath is not short of great restaurants but this place stands out, despite (or perhaps because of) its unassuming atmosphere. Combine this with fantastic food, inventive flavors, and a glass of good wine and you have the recipe for a lovely way to while away an evening.

Went for a breakfast. Probably the best breakfast in bath at this price. Would personally recommend to anyone looking for a nice breakfast in the morning.

I was brought here for a tapas lunch and to be fair I wasn't expecting great things from tapas food. Boy was I wrong. The food was beautifully presented and tasted just as good. Stunning mouthfuls that were delicious and very reasonably priced. The service was great and the staff friendly and welcoming. I'm looking forward to hopefully eating here... More

Gurmet food, from a Hungarian headchef - friendly staff, cosy atmosphere - I wish there was a "Same Same" in each city I am planning to visit! It is just a gastronomic orgasm!
