“highlight of our trip to bath”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

visiting bath for a short stay this was the highlight! michel was the perfect host and the food was superb,i could eaten every dish on the menu! just one tiny moan the waitress working that night must have been on a promise because she just whisked away our plates and glasses without checking to see if we had finished, but this would not put me off another visit and i have recommended la barrique to my friends.

“Romantic restaurang in Bath”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Om du är ute och söker ett romantiskt ställe i Bath. 
Bistro La barrique, är det rätta stället,  god atmosfär med stearinljus på borden. Trots att restaurangen var fullsatt var det lugnt  och tyst, vilket idag är ganska ovanligt. 

If you are out looking for a romantic place in Bath.
Bistro La Barrique, is the right place, good atmosphere with candles on the tables. Even though the restaurant was full, it was calm and quiet, which is now quite rare.
The menu consists of appetizers type Tapitas Everything excellent and amazing. Each dish costs around £ 7.00, which is well worth the money. A carafe of wine approx. £ 15.00 and a bottle is around £ 25.00. The wine list includes wines up to around 
£ 55.00.
 Despite the fact that the owner is the only serving personnel, floats to quietly and calmly. A place to recommend for those who want a cozy night out at a romantic place.

“Pre- Theatre”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This was our second visit to Bistro La Barrique.
There seemed to be a different ambience this particular night.
It did seem that the pre-theatre bookings are treated differently to the regulars which will make us think twice before going again before the theatre as the difference in treatment from the first experience which was excellent and faultless to the second time was markedly different.
Dishes were excellent and our vegetarian guest had good choices. We could have eaten all the desers many times over, delicious.
Would recommend this restaurant, but perhaps only choose from the main menu.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Lovely restaurant with a pleasantly different menu. The dishes are all small so it has a tapas feel to it although the food is French not Spanish.

“Lovely food and friendly service”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We are fairly regular visitors to this French restaurant. You have to know that the dishes are small and so to order a good selection. As vegetarians, we find lots of choice and very tasty food. Good wines too. We are often in a hurry (to see a film or play) and the friendly staff and patron usually cope with this but stay longer if you can and savour the food.
