“Much better than the 'authentic' tapas place in Kensington”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Excellent tortilla, chicken, lamb sausages, halloumi and even the green salad was particularly nice and well presented. Charming place with friendly and efficient service.

“Delicious food, honestly priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

Visited on the strength of previous tripadvisor reviews this evening. What a treat! The food was delicious and unpretentious, and the restaurant is so friendly and down to earth. We'll be back again next time we visit Bath.

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

I renewed my acqaintance with Same-Same last weekend on a visit to Bath but I've been here many times and it occured to me that they deserved a five star write up and I'd never done it! Quirky, charming with tables and mismatched chairs all cheek by jowl. The service is always cheery and welcoming and the daily papers are available to read. They make great coffee (mine's a flat white and I'm a tough judge!), squeeze orange juice freshly and the cooked breakfast is generous, delicious and good value. Don't spend your money in some anonymous non tax-paying chain, go to Same-Same and have a proper independent cafe experience.

“Ace 'late night' food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were in Bath for an event and needed food at around 9.45pm. We ended up feeling like Joseph & Mary, as there was no room at any of the inns - well there was, but they were shutting at a rate of nots (pun intended)... And then, serendipitously, we found Same-Same. We got a lovely welcome (even though they too were about to close), enjoyed cracking good food, a great atmosphere, and all at unarguably cheap prices. This place is really worth checking out.
A general word of warning: if you ever visit Bath, make sure you eat in good time, as everything seems to shut early.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

We had booked a table for dinner after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. It was so good that we went back the next day for lunch. Service very attentive and friendly and the food was delicious and very well priced. Certainly worth a visit. It is open from breakfast right through until evening and the staff still manage a smile! Thank you
