“Good food and service but felt slightly cramped”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

We finally got to Casanis as good friends rate it as their favourite restaurant in Bath. There's no doubt that the food is good. I had the cheaper set menu which offers exceptional value whilst my husband went a la carte. Decent portion size, well cooked, good ingredients. My husband rated his sole which was served on a bed of risotto and spinach, excellent and I agree.

Service was also good. The only slight downer was that it did feel quite cramped but this isn't unusual with popular places. We both have back problems so eschewed the banquette we were offered and were given a small table with chairs. These weren't the most comfortable but we are somewhat choosy given our lumbar issues.

Overall I would recommend it for the cooking and we will probably return.

“Amazing food, great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

The restaurant had a relaxed atmosphere we sat down stairs so can not comment on the upstairs room mentioned in other reviews. The service was great and the food was the best I've eaten in a long time.The catch of the day was outstanding.

“very disappointing!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Booked this restuarant for our 40th wedding anniversary, after reading the great reviews.Asked if we could choose the particular table for 2 we would sit. Received a flat , 'No not possible.' Response.

On arriving on the night of the booking, we were shown up the stairs to what I can only discribe 'as a bare grim overflow room' Which looked more like a room setting from the novell Crime & Punishment!!! Needless to say we didnt stay to sample the food. There are much nicer restuarants in Bath. Would also agree with Theenglishcritic review not a very friendly restuarant

CasanisManagement, Manager at Casanis, responded to this review, January 31, 2014
Whilst we are always happy to hear feedback, unfortunately this isn’t exactly what happened here. This gentleman informed us it was his wedding anniversary a couple of hours before his reservation. We were fully booked that evening and other customers had already made specific seating requests before him. We always do our best to meet our customers needs, but with only a definitive amount of tables in specific areas at particular times there is only so much we can do. He was offered a romantic large table in our beautiful Georgian Dining Room. Unfortunately, because we would not upset other patrons to suit him, this gentleman obviously still felt entitled to something over others. Despite any derogatory comments we will continue to work to our policy of fairness, politeness and friendliness.

“All-round excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Four of us went to Casanis for an early evening New Year's Eve dinner. It turned out to be an excellent choice. There was a short but interesting - and delicious - menu, excellent house wine, low-key music (very important), and very pleasant ambience away from the hideous weather outside. All the staff were very friendly and professional. It was a very relaxed and pleasant evening. Try it!
