This was my third visit and definitely thought it was time to write a review. The place is incredible, the restaurant is incredibly romantic, the decor is gorgeous and the atmosphere is great. We brought my parents this time as we wanted them to hear what all the fuss was about. We ordered lots of tapas; fois gras. crab, chicken, patatas bravas, goats cheese, king prawns. All amazing, the crispy chicken is so tasty we had two! We then had paella, absolutely unreal; my parents had pork and us the rabbit, all of it so delicious. We had 2 bottles of lovely white wine over the meal but couldn't manage any dessert. The service is excellent, the staff are so friendly, helpful but not overbearing. I have recommended La Perla to so many people, do not listen to negative reviews, the only reason I can think to anyone not enjoying it is because they;re fussy and don't appreciate delicious, freshly prepared Spanish food.

We really enjoyed La Perla. The restaurant looked and felt classy, food was delicious and clearly someone took pride and care in making sure everything was just right as well as beautifully presented. Tastecard also made this excellent value for money.

Had lunch July.2014, very nice restaurant limited menu but what excellent quality, fresh well cooked and very tasty. Patatas Bravas different but excellent, Scallops were so good we ordered another serving, Croquetas de jamon were also excellent as were all the dishes. Deserts were great having a serving of their Cheese cake and Chocolate Truffles. clearly all ingredients were fresh, certainly no microwave in this kitchen, chef certainly knows his/her job and clearly takes pride in his/her food. Bill came to £70 even after a 15% discount but with only coke and beer but it was well worth the money,. Pity its 130 miles away but would recommend to anyone local

My boyfriend and I came up to Bath for the weekend. We visited La Perla on the Friday night and was very impressed, the entrance ia beauitful and the food was amazing. We ordered 5 dishes between us and they did not disapoint. The cocktails were fantastic. Infact La Perla was so good we returned the following night! It's a must visit.

The food and the staff at La Perla were phenomenal! We had the Tapas and each dish was beautifully presented and just so tasty we had to stop ourselves just ordering more and more. Our waitress was very attentive and the service overall was excellent. The only downside was that their card machine would not allow us to enter a gratuity so as we had no cash with us we were unable to reward the service as we would have liked. But we'll be back soon to savour some more great food and won't make the same mistake!
