Really good French restaurant specialising in "little plates" tapas which you mix & match. There both regular and special dishes. They do a good lunchtime special deal. Service is helpful & charming.

The plain exterior belies the warm welcome and pleasant interior. Dishes are small and two (or more) each are recommended. They are each beautiful creations and as well as being very tasty are talking points in themselves. The house wine in also excellent.

We came here after a recommendation from friends and were not disappointed. I could agree with the reviewer who said that it is not the restaurant with the best ambiance and the tables and decor do look very basic and no frills.

When we arrived we weren't sure if we had made a good choice as it looks a little like a coffee shop. First table was near the Toilet entrance but the staff found another table for us which was much cosier. A very varied menu enabled we wife and I to chose a number of dishes which were all out...

Absolutely fantastic place to eat. Friendly staff, excellent menu (including a fab range of vegetarian options) and really high quality food. I would definitely recommend Bistro La Barrique when you're next in Bath!

An unexpected find after the theatre. Having found most places fully booked, this one invited us in and found space. Wonderful selection of small bites to make up an excellent meal. Every dish was perfect and presented beautifully. Staff were very nice and able to give good advice. Definitely coming back here soon.

Our first disappoint it was the "bread "(pain di Mae). The mussels didn't have any taste,full of water,onions and tomato everywhere. The king prawns they were so small and just 3,the sauce ok. Ratattoi full of water and tomato sauce. Duck was ok. I wouldn't recommend this place if you want to eat proper French food.

The food is very good and there is a out side garden if the weather is good it's also close to the theatre royal and main attractions.
