“Fantastic food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Our group of 4 went to La Perla last night and we ordered 7 dishes, including bread, and this was more than enough between us all.

If you're after something different I recommend the Bull's Tail, it's wrapped in filo pastry and sat on a bed of hummus and melts in the mouth. Definitely recommended.

The squid was the softest squid I've ever eaten. I can say that was the best squid I've ever had.

What makes their food exceptional is doing the little things right. From the wine, to the cocktails, to the service... All was impeccable.

“Amazing food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Came to Bath for the weekend and found this fantastic restaurant. Attentive staff and tapas just like being in Spain. Would come to Bath for the day just to eat in this restaurant. The suckling pig and Spanish bull's tail were especially good.

“Awesome! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Popped in on a Tuesday evening. I like the fact they don't seat you all huddled by other diners, but space you out so when it's not mega busy you have some privacy. Adore the Estrella on tap, makes you feel like you are in Spain. We had two potatas bravas, a squid, mini burgers and a chicken dish. All were stunningly delicious (some a little salty), but thoroughly enjoyable. You can see the chefs cooking too, which adds to the whole experience and atmosphere. We will be heading back for sure. £40 for 4 beers and 4 dishes was very reasonable in my opinion.

“Excellent if you crave tapas.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Really good service, tasty food, good wine, and quite affordable. They have both regular and more experimental tapas on the menu.

“Lovely meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

We have been to La Perla a few times now, although not for more than a year. This visit proved this had been a mistake and we won't be waiting as long again. We enjoyed all our tapa but the monkfish continues to stand out, and we heartily recommend the red wine cheesecake. The service was pleasant and friendly, a real strong point.

Please venture the (very) few paces up the road from the centre and support this gem.
