“What a find...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We had lunch here on Saturday while visiting Bath...we don't live far away, but never know where to go to eat...we do now.
We stumbled across this little restaurant while we were looking for somewhere to have a small inexpensive lunch. All the places to eat in Bath seem to be expensive and not what we were looking for at all.
We were lucky to get a tabel in the window as soeone was leaving as wer arrived, other than that all teh table were full....always a good sign.
We had tapas....the flavour was fabulous....Harissa chicken with feta and peppers....delicious...the food was reasonably priced and just what we wnated for lunch.
The restaurant was full all the time we were eating with tables emptiying and filling as soon as people had left them.
This will definitely be somewhere that I will revisit. Worth a try.

“Cosy dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Loved the cosy atmosphere and the tapas were divine. Our favourites were the bacon-wrapped scallops and the duck risotto balls. Glad we booked as the restaurant was packed.

“Variable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

My partner and I went on the spur of the moment one Thursday evening last summer. We were very impressed! The tapas were delicious, service friendly and quick and we recommened it to several friends. We went again a couple of weeks ago and had a very different experience. Our main gripe was that at 7pm many of the dishes had either sold out or weren't available and so actually having gone for tapas, we ended up eating something completely different. The food was still good but not what we had wanted to eat so we ended up feeling short changed. We will give it another chance next time we fancy Tapas and hope that this blip was just a one-off. Regardless of our last experience, the staff are always charming and helpful.

“Great little find, lunchtime visit was perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Friendly staff, comfortable and laid back surroundings, diverse menu across the price range. Tapas portions are tapas size (unsurprisingly) so lunchtime bill of around £20 per person. Good value, well worth a visit for lunch or coffee. Can't comment on the evening but my guess is it would be as good. If we are ever back in Bath this is top of our lunchtime list without a doubt.

“Fantastic food and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Went here today for lunch with wife and kids. Had heard good things about it before and certainly wasn't disappointed. Whilst it is small and was quite busy (not surprising on a Saturday afternoon in Bath), we managed to find a few seats. Plumped for a couple of the sandwiches and our usual coffees, as well as a piece of carrot cake. The sandwiches were delicious and well stuffed, made with baguettes from Richard Bertinets bakery. The carrot cake was really moist and well spiced, with nice bits of whole carrot. Coffee was also well up to scratch. The reason I can give this a five star rating is first because the pricing is reasonable, and second because looking up at the menu board there seems to a lot of choice, and if all of it is to the same standard as we had today then no doubt we can return here many times
