“Excellent fish, lovely tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Went for dinner last night at Tilleys Bistro - and it was wonderful. A selection of beautiful bread, lovely tapas and a wonderful tomato salad (lovely dressing!) to start followed by perfectly cooked whole Bream (for him) and Bass (for me). Friendly service, not overbearing, and a lovely atmosphere.

“Best Eton mess and French onion soup in Bath!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Amazing combination of French and English cuisine! Most amazing Eton Mess an provides healthy options for dinner. I have hinted everywhere for a good French onion soup and the one here is the best I have had in the UK!

“Top Marks for Tilleys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Took our daughter for a birthday meal tonight and everything was perfect. A great selection of foods for all tastes and preferences, lovely surroundings, perfect hostess and a really relaxed and happy evening was had by all. Highly recommend - why go to the chain names when such excellence is right here near the Abbey.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Went for dinner with the family, really amazing food from a varied cuisine so there's something for everyone. The tapas style dishes make it great value for money and good for any type of meal - you could easily have a light lunch or a heavy dinner depending on the number of dishes you order, very versatile. Desserts were lovely, as equally good as the savoury food so make sure to leave room! Overall great food that's a little bit more unique than the stuff you get in chain restaurants in a lovely, non-touristy setting! Great service too, a must for any Bath visitors and locals alike.

“Cosy and welcoming with delicious food and wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

We were well looked after by Dawn and her team on Saturday night. Between the two of us we covered a lot of the menu. From the wasabi peas and salmon to the perfectly cooked steak, the yummy ice cream and the beautifully presented cheeseboard, all tasted delicious. The atmosphere was cosy and welcoming - fairy lights and candles hit the spot perfectly. Thank you for a lovely evening.
