Delicious food, nicely presented. Excellent wines although very much "old world"; Saint emission was superb and so nicely presented in a decanter via an agitator. Staff are efficient, friendly and professional. Decor is fine although on a hot summer evening air con would help.

Incredible food, I had the game sausage to start and the guinea fowl for main course followed by the prune and almond tart and all three courses were outstanding. The venue is small and very personal but with enough room between tables and the staff were great and very attentive, First class evening

We had a superb meal during the Bath Music Festival 2017 at Raphael. The staff were friendly and attentive. There was an excellent choice of Fish of the Day from the blackboard and a variety of main course meat choices. I had superb tender fillet steak cooked from scratch, exactly as requested, with fresh vegetables and crispy chips, accompanied by... More

We picked the Raphael partly because it's near the theatre and they have a good pre-theatre deal. But everything about our visit was excellent. Attentive, but not pushy staff, pleasant surroundings and great food. I had the chicken liver salad and pork belly - both delicious. We'd definitely come back when we next visit Bath.

As usual excellentgood choice on the menu, we have got to know the staff over many years as we always go there prior to the theatre, and it makes for a good evening out.

On a day out in Bath, we decided to give Rafaels a go. A small but cosy restaurant. We had the set menu, with pork bellies as our mains. Beautifully presented, lovely taste. Puddings were excellent, and again a lot of effort in the presentation. Wine choice was good and at £20 a bottle, not overpriced. Lovely attentive service from... More

In 6 nights in Bath we ate very well but our best meal was at Raphael: roasted halibut with green beans and roasted potatoes for me, hazelnut and rosemary-crusted rump of lamb with butternut squash puree and roasted root vegetables for my partner. Absolutely terrific. We booked this restaurant partly because it's so attractive, especially in the evening. Reasonably priced... More

Really enjoyed our Saturday evening dinner here. We arrived quite late, and everything went smoothly until we asked to wait 5 minutes before ordering dessert. 20 minutes later, still waiting….. unable to catch staff’s eye but they had already started clearing up the restaurant at the end of the day. Eventually we got dessert but by then were the last... More
