“Funky Tapas & Mediteranean Bistro”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Loved the latin jazz soundtrack and felt lucky to get a Saturday night table.
Menu was exciting and written on a huge blackboard.
(only downside is you may need to stand and squint !-)
Reasonable prices for very trendy area and food is fresh and spontaneous.
Quite a snug place so booking is essential, give 'em a call!

“Great, fun place to eat”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Some of the best coffee in Bath, in a genuinely warm, friendly atmospheric cafe. Have only experienced breakfasts and lunches, which are great. I have never tried dinner, but there is a sizeable specials board to go at and an interesting and inviting array of wines. Have been going on and off for years and can't think of anything I dislike.

“Excellent for a small meal”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

A friend suggested we met up for something to eat during my lunch break, so we couldn't be too long. She suggested we tried this place, and we had a really nice meal.
There was a lot of choice, and after being told that 2 tapas was roughly equal to a main lunch meal, I chose some duck arancini and a tortilla - both were excellent. The only real problem was that I was spoilt for choice.
I'll have to go back soon and try the rest of the menu!

“one of the best cafes that Ive been to - what a find!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We went for lunch this weekend as we had seen the reviews and the award its won online. We loved this place and cant wait for another trip to Bath to go again. The scotch eggs are the best we have ever taken and the other tapas dishes we amazing too. I wish we had something like this in London
