A real gem!

This was our second visit here,as we live in the North now, and we absolutely love it. Built in the cellars of the building, and not very big, it has charm and great atmosphere. I agree it can be noisy if you are unlucky enough to have loud diners, but we have always been comfortable. The staff are... read more

We had dinner this charming restaurant on Thursday evening for my wife's birthday. It was our second visit and it was every bit as good as the first. The staff are very welcoming and seem genuinely pleased to serve you. Our waiter Fabrizio explained that he had only been working there for 4 days but assured us that if there... More

A pleasure to visit! I made a mistake when booking and reserved for 4 people instead of 5. We did not realise the mistake until after we arrived and they were fully booked. The restaurant is fairly small and intimate and an extra person would be difficult. My mistake but the manager was excellent in finding a solution which enabled... More

Great and charming place. Nicely greeted on arrival and shown to reserved table for two. Great atmosphere. Smaller establishment, but attentive staff constantly there to serve every whim. Food was perfect and well thought out. Really deserves the rave reviews it has gotten. Remember to book early (they will also cater to birthdays and anniversaries) as it is small and... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant on a weekend break to Bath after it was recommended to us and I am so glad we did, I cannot fault the restaurant at all. It is a highly popular restaurant but we were able to book a table for that evening on the same day, although slightly earlier than we had... More

From the setting, to the attentive, courteous and smiling waiting staff, this was a treat. I had emailed several weeks in advance, which was a good thing apparently, because this is a very popular dining experience, and, as usual, informed them of my gluten free limitations. I was assured that this wouldn't be a problem, and once settled in, a... More

There are much better restaurants in bath maybe not with such attentive staff but better food . The place is very small and extremely loud, the tables are so close together that the chatter echo's around what is a tunnel. I would advise you go as group. The starters are very good but the main course's are a let down.... More
