“Good pre-theatre choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Have passed by this restaurant so many times sorry to say. It's a lovely little place, very friendly staff, good food and very good selection of wines. The pre dinner menu hit the mark. Very tasty arrancini to start followed by pork belly. The waitress was not at all phased that desserts and cheese were to be shared. Unpretentious but well-cooked food in a relaxed friendly spot. All round a good find.

“Great food and wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

A lovely french restaurant. Staff were friendly and welcoming. I had moules mariniere to start, which were excellent and served with fresh bread. My husband had the salmon gravalax, which was equally tasty. I then had the silver bream from the specials board which was fantastic while my husband opted for the beef casserole which again was great. We were unfortunately too full for dessert, but the dessert list is very tempting. We have eaten here before on previous trips to Bath and would definitely do so again.

“When 10 out of 10 isn't enough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

To celebrate my 2nd year anniversary, I tired nearly every restaurant on the website and managed to get a table at Raphaels. This possible surprise was the icing on the cake.

On arriving had a wonderful reception, with amazing service which continued through out the night.
There was no nagging about how we were doing every 5 minutes, was professional service with a well managed team.

The food however, makes rating it out of ten impossible, it was perfectly cooked, temperature texture and flavor. With enough to make you full yet still wanting to finish your plate.

An excellent wine and food menu to rival that of any restaurant in Bath, with a menu that was designed for every starter to match every main.

A visit that i will talk about for years to come, and one in which I will come back again soon.

I want to thank Raphaels for making the night better than perfect, was a wonderful experience.

“Good spot for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

We eat as a group of 7, eating off the lunchtime 2 course special special which at 12.95 was excellent value. There was sufficient choice to meet everyone's needs and the quantity was adequate without being excessive. The service was excellent, attentive without being overbearing. Worth it for lunch, cost could add up for an evening meal however food was excellent so i suspect this will more than compensate for the price.
