“Cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful tapas restaurant!”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Thank you La Perla for a truly special evening. A large, spontaneous family outing was met with wonderful service, complete professionalism and an attitude that made us feel that nothing was too much trouble.

We were a party of 10 who booked last minute on a Tuesday evening. My brothers and their wives/partners come from all over the world and they couldn't stop raving about both the incredible food and the amazing service we received.

Our waitress was effortlessly charming and efficient. I have recently fallen unexpectedly pregnant and so she made a special effort to point out everything I could and couldn't eat and placing the appropriate dishes in front of me. What amazed me was that all of this extensive knowledge came off the top of her head and she didn't have to ask the chef anything, which is very rarely the case.

Every single dish was mouth-wateringly good. My brother's Spanish girlfriend even gave it the thumbs up! Thank you for an incredible family meal and for making us feel so welcome, well after all the other guests had left.

“Truly amazing.. You'd be crazy not to visit!”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

Went here on a Sunday evening in August.. we thought it would be quiet and possibly minimal atmosphere being a quiet day of the week but it was amazing. From the greet at the entrance, help and recommendations with the menu and drinks (WHITE SANGRIA WAS TO DIE FOR!!)

The food was like nothing I've ever had before.. Truly delicious. Tapas can sometimes be greasy but this was delightful.

Not overly cheap but not very overpriced especially for what you get.

This is a hidden gem in Bath and well worth a visit.. I will sure be returning!!!!!

“Beautifully fresh tasty food”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Went here for our anniversary and we were blown away. It doesn't look much from the outside and is a bit of a mission to get to down the steep steps, but once you are inside it is wonderful. Very relaxed and friendly attentive staff. The decor is very complimentary and was a nice back drop for our romantic meal. The food came promptly and was so delicious! It was hot, fresh and so tasty! The biggest bonus was that we used our Tastecard so we got 50% off the food. Would certainly recommend this little hidden gem to anyone.

“Good tapas”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

In Bath for the day, we had lunch here. The entrance is a bit dodgy - careful if wearing high heels as you need to good down a steep staircase. But when you reach the restaurant it is quite lovely. The ambience is delightful, quiet, with just some music in the background, the tables properly set, comfortable chairs, nicely laid out. Very good loos! There was just one other couple that day, so we were taken care of quickly. Service was friendly. We had 4 tapas between us and a large glass of wine each (2 of us). The bill came to around £20 each. The food was very tasty, nice and hot, well presented, the portions about right for the price (£4.50 p/portion average).
Walking distance from busses and centre of Bath.
Recommended.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Very good restaurant, good location, excellent food and great staff. Tapas was very good, both traditional choices and new versions. Sat outside in little courtyard and had a very enjoyable time.
