“Excellent Lunch Menu”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Rarely give 5 stars to a restaurant but the lunch that 4 of us had there recently was excellent. Limited lunch menu but the food was excellent and well presented. Restaurant was clean with white table cloths and napkins - nice place to take people. Wine was pricey but the £20 a bottle of Merlot was excellent. Service was excellent and friendly Four of us had lunch and wine for £99 including tip - pretty good

“Valentine's Day Dinner”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of dining at The Kilted Chef on Valentine's Day. We both agreed that it was one of the best meals we'd ever had.

From the moment we stepped down into the restaurant we fell in love. As we entered our attention was caught by the delight's of the live entertainment on offer: a young female singer serenaded us which set the tone for a wonderful few hours. The decor was as beautifully designed as it was atmospheric. Indeed, we had the pleasure of sitting in a cubby-hole of sorts: a small room off to the left of the main restaurant where four couples were housed in romantic isolation. Perfect.

The food itself was beautiful. Multiple courses, all prepared to perfection and served promptly and with grace. In short, we loved everything about it. The lamb and the monkfish were both outstanding, as were both deserts. Our compliments must also extend to the sous-chef who provided us with two hand-made chocolates with our tea and coffee. They were lovely!

My girlfriend described the experience as like "being waited on hand and foot". This was something which resonated particularly strongly with me as in comparison to other restaurants you genuinely felt as if you were being looked after for the evening. This was exemplified when, after finishing our last course, we were unobtrusively checked upon by the staff at least 5 times during the 15 minutes we spent finishing our wine. We were not hurried or rushed but rather reminded that there was always someone available should we have any further requests.

Overall, a fantastic restaurant which we would recommend to anyone for any occasion. Absolutely brilliant!

5 stars.

“Valentines Day Delight”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

We were treated to an absolutely delicious meal from the valentines day set menu. The food was superb as was the service and attention to detail from the minute we stepped through the door. Fine dining at its very best and quite easily my favourite restaurant in Bath and the surrounding areas.

“Fabulous food”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

We visited the Kilted Chef today for lunch. Three courses from the set menu. Every course was amazing, the lamb melted in your mouth and the haddock was perfect. I normally have to use extra salt and pepper but I didn't have to use it this time, the seasoning was spot on. The presentation was beautiful and there was enough food to make you feel full but not uncomfortable. Apparently the pastry chef is only 17, a very talented young man.
Our waiter, Peter I think, made the whole experience more special...he was a lot of fun but very professional.
Please try this place, you won't be disappointed!
