“Lovely food!”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

We had some great tapas here! Was quite quiet when we were there which was the only slight negative.

“No Paella”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

We had booked for dinner on a Saturday night & to be honest we only go there for their amazing paella. However, we were disappointed to find out that they were not serving their paella around that time, since the restaurant was very busy. I would say their tapas are delicious, but don't go there with a hungry stomach, because the paella is probably the only filling dish they have!

“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!!!!!
