“Delicious Food, Relaxed Atmosphere”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Bistro La Barrique is an unusual restaurant: they serve small dishes ("Petit Plats") so that it is a like tapas with French food. We liked this very much, giving the opportunity to try several different things. About two dishes per person plus a couple of sides, or three dishes without sides, is about right. The food came very quickly and was excellent. Having been on holiday to France earlier in the summer our standard for French food was high, but we were impressed. And the restaurant has a very relaxed, casual atmosphere -- not ideal for special occasions for this reason, but ideal for families with older children or for an informal meal with friends.

“Great location, food and service”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Went there as a result of Trip Advisor reviews and it measured up in every way. The owner is charming and helpful, the petit plats concept is like a french tapas with bigger portions so 5 are enough for 2 people, the wine selection and prices are good and the central location easy to get to. No hesitation in recommending this bistro.

“Authentic French food served like tapas”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

The dishes include many French classics but instead of one large meal you order three or four small dishes. Delicious desserts too. Wide choice of wine slightly on the expensive side. It's not cheap but very much value for money

“Four Americans”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

This restaurant is wonderful! On one of the hotest days in England we found this quaint restaurant my husband, my sister's and I sat for hours eating and drinking in the outdoor patio. The Owner Michele came over to our table and was most gracious. Michele spoke with us about the history of his restaurant and the food he prepares. We liked it so much we went back the next night.
