“Excellent pre-theatre meal”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were early because of having driven from Cheltenham and were at the door at opening time. We had a friendly welcome from the lovely waitress. Choosing two petites plats and a side dish each from the pre-theatre menu was difficult because they all looked so delicious and imaginative. We both chose different things and shared. They were even better than we expected. We were very impressed by the wine list, 55 wines by the glass or carafe. Michel, the owner is an engaging character and we were able to chat to him as we had plenty of time before curtain-up. We shall certainly come here again the next time we come down to the theatre. Service and value excellent.

“Great food!...french tapas?”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Really nice staff, really nice food and ambiance. if you can sit outside, do so. Its really nice in an old stone courtyard. Only thing i didn't like was the portions of the food. we were quite hungry and came off a 3 hour bus trip, wanting to do something nice straight away...tapas portions...so not great for those who have a large appetite! really nice food though, small as it arrived...

Good choice of dishes, we appreciated the mini dishes. Tasty food. Excellent service. A great place to have lunch - and a courtyard for sunny days.

“Always a great experience”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Coming back to La Barrique after summer holidays gave us this nice, warm, family feeling. The menu is always imaginative, the service excellent. If you are a regular, resist the temptation to order what you love most and try something different. If you are a new visitor, try as many tapas as you can...You will also become a regular!
Favourites this time: Honey glazed pumpkin, Jerusalem artichoke and caraway seeds parcel, Grilled butterfly sardines with capers, parsley and lemon, Bourride of sea bream with saffron rouille.
Please, bring the avocado tapas back on the menu!
