An absolutely fantastic way to enjoy the best of French Cuisine. We ordered six small plates between two of us and all six were outstanding. Authentic food from a talented chef. A fantastic evening in a relaxed and friendly little restaurant at a reasonable price.The wine list is extensive and Michael knows every bottle. Don't miss it!

We were recommended to go here by SACO Appartments where we were staying. The owner, Michel, used to run the highly rated Bistro No 5. It could be described asPetits Plats/ French Tapas (although the portions are fine)-you can choose as much as you like,. Good, well chosen wine list with many available by the glass. Bath has all the usual restaurant chains but this independent is a cut above!

Came to Bath for a weekend visit and chose this restaurant on the recommendation of the Hardens website. The ratings on that site undersold the simple delicious trench food available here.

We had 4/5 dishes and all of them were superb. Not a moral was left on any plate. In a word this place is a delight.

Went to Bath with my Mum last weekend and came across this lovely little bistro. We went for the lunchtime set menu which was an absolute bargain and delicious too. Lovely ambience inside, authenic food and Michel the owner was lovely. Would definately recommend it and will return on my next visit to that lovely city.

I took my family (including three 12 year olds) as we were visiting Bath for a couple of days. It is a little jewel. It shows that you don't need to go to a "fine dining" restaurant to get great French cooking. The kids wolfed everything down. Particularly popular was the Duck confit gratinee, a seafood pancake and the creme brulee but all of it was great. The small dishes, tapas style, worked really well. It was a bit of a special meal so we pushed the boat out a bit. For five of us, including a lovely bottle of Malbec, puddings and coffee and tip, it was £170. Worth every penny. Every neighbourhood should have a quality non-chain bistrot like this.
